#232 Theakston – Old Peculiar

Name: Old Peculiar
Brewery:  Theakston (Masham, England)
Style: Old Ale
ABV: 5.6%
Source:  New World

Oops! Somehow I completely forgot to blog about this beer, and am now having to magically manipulate time and slot this in between past posts. I’m hoping that means nobody will see it and I can get away with being very brief.

I bought this because I thought it might be like that Pink’s Peculiar that I wrote about yonks ago. That beer was b a t s h i t  c r a z y, and we all know batshit crazy beers make for the best posts.

However. This was disappointingly delicious and not that weird at all. It was dark and oaky, and tasted of prunes, figs, licorice, chocolate, molasses, and maybe something like wine or sherry. It was sweet but quite drying in the mouth at the same time, which made drinking the whole bottle an effortless feat.

Now that this missing post has been accounted for, forget you saw it. I was never here.
