Review and Tasting

Sampled on 07/03/2016

Appearance

(sample bottle best before 31/Dec/16) Clear, deep brown (virtually opaque) with ruby red tones. Thick retentive tan head and light lacing.

Aroma

Doughy brown bread with charcoal, dungy mocha coffee, floral hops and toffee fudge.

Taste

Creamy mouthfeel, toasty burnt malt, earthy chicory coffee, milk chocolate and herbal complexity with subtle cherry and rich fruitiness.

Aftertaste

Faint pine and grassy notes emerge in the toasty malt and caramel fudge and chocolate finish.

Overall

Full-bodied, dark and strong with a creamy mouthfeel. Old Peculier has a toasty malty character with notes of coffee, chocolate and caramel. It’s a hearty meal of a beer.
