COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Abv reduced from 5.7 to 5.6 in 2010.
Its initial sweetness is, apparently, "of roasted and vinous notes with a subtle bitter aftertaste". Strong fruitiness, often with "banana notes" standing out, is derived from Old Peculiers fermentation process.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2004
Yorkshire ale. Deep reddish brown, aroma is of fresh hops and hints of caramel from the malt. The taste is coffeeish, full bodied, and well hopped. Exhibits a beautiful tan head that is well retained leaving Belgian lace on the proper glass.

Terminus (3626) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 11, 2004
12 oz bottle-Pours a deep red/brown hue that is darker in the middle of the glass. Nice sweet malty aroma with apple and sour notes. Woody, malty palate that is slightly astringent on the tongue. Thanks whaleman for letting me have a bottle (and for making the beer brats with this stuff!)

DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
Dark rubyish color. Very complex. I tasted brown sugar, caramel, soy sauce, blackberries, almonds, earthiness, port, raisins, and figs. Reminds me of a nut brown/red/scotch ale/porter combo. One of the most unique beers I've ever had.

Accaris (21) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 30, 2004
If Newcastle made a "Special Selection" for its Brown ale, then perhaps it would be similar to Old Peculier. The beer has a myriad of appealing, mild flavors; caramel, fruit (fig, perhaps,) a bit of starch, and a tad of carbon. It has a nice dark red appearance.

punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2004 This is a step up from Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter--less soy sauce taste, better head, nice red appearance, more tolerable overall....

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 29, 2004
The aroma is above average, the appearance is above average, the flavour is above average, the palate is above average, and so is the overall impression. I really like the taste and palate in this beer, especially. Not in style, but in quality this beer ranks near John Courage, most likely - it is in the same class. Still not a regular basis beer most likely, but quite enjoyable. Good one.

Pours dark and red with a small white head. Aroma is of burnt carmel. Flavor is malty,bready and i can taste rasins in there somewhere. Peculiar is the word because there is alot giong on with this one. A little too pecculiar for me but not bad every once in a while.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2004
Bottle. Dark ruby colour with a thick, frothy, mostly diminishing off-white head. Caramel, dark bread, and yeasty aroma. Bready, slightly fruity flavour, a touch of toffee, and a nutty bitter finish. Medium to full body with a bit of a juiciness to it.
