500ml bottle (BBE November 2015) into a nonic pint glass

Look: Pour it into the glass and it's damn near opaque - hold it up to the light and it's a deep, ruby red.

Smell: definitely a dark fruit vibe - blackcurrants and so forth - with a bit of spiciness on top. No hops to speak of, and the malts aren't particularly up-front.

Taste: Smooth malts with a hint of spice, with hops and the dark fruits coming through at the end. OP packs quite a few flavours, none of which really dominate.

Feel: Surprisingly smooth - at first sniff you'd think this would taste like fruity paint stripper, but no. It's eminently drinkable.

Overall: Theakstons are a local (to me) brewery and Old Peculier can often be found on draught hereabouts. It's a bit heavy to be a session beer, unless your plan is to get as drunk as possible as quickly as possible. More of a 'sipping' beer - the sort of thing that you can enjoy in front of a blazing fire at the back-end of the year. Rather like now, in fact. Recommended.
