Just loverly to sip and drink in front of a fire.
The colour is almost mesmerising! mikenodak (150) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 27, 2001
points off for spelling, but seriously, this is a pretty good beer. I'll try some more, just to make sure. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2001
A classic in my opinion. I can always rely on a bottle of this to taste its best. Warming and nutty. duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2003 Buttery nose, caramel, raisin and nuts on the palate, quite thin mouthfeel, and a little bit sweet however, not too bad. JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2001
Sweet, malty flavor balanced with nice bitterness. Good beer...............

I rather liked this. It was a nice malty drinking beer. I was thinking I could drink a lot of these in one sitting. Of course at the time I didn't realize it was a strong ale. I thought it was very similar to Aass Bock Beer. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 22, 2001
deliciously fruity. some chocolate and very late bitterness................. jbeer99 (31) - SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2001
Just look for a minute, be mesmerized ... By embers of colour, a russet hue ... And an aroma - WOW! heady surprise ... You'd think rich port wine was poured in this brew !!! The tastes are just gorgeous, a stately swirl ... Of oak and butter, caramel and fruit ... Its subtle hop presence a bitter FEEL ... To close out the session: Pleasure Acute !!! You might say the body's too thin to hold ... All of the power of flavor but I ... Find Theakston's Peculiar to be solid gold ... If you haven't yet had one, give it a try !!! eczematic (1326) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - SEP 27, 2001
It took a plane crashing into the WTC to distract my attention from this beer when I had it two weeks ago. Soft, crystal and chocolate malt character, 'banana notes' indeed (of the artificial ester variety). I've had more 'peculier' beers though. CourageBest (51) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2001
Name's perfect--weirdest beer you'll ever taste. You'll like the first and second ones, but will move on after that.
