One woman's ale journey

A beery boozy journey with delightful snacks along the way and a book in my hand.

Theakston Old Peculier

I didn't need to taste this to know I'd like it!  A strong ale that glows a lovely deep dark ruby in the glass and I got an aroma of treacle as I poured it.  It has a reasonable head that reduces quite quickly but my first sip was DIVINE!!!  There are so many flavours evident in each mouthful: treacle, dark red fruit (perhaps cherries), liquorice and a hint of chocolate. 

This is a dark and decadent ale and Ale definitely be seeing you again, Old Peculier!

Brewed by Theakston, Ripon
5.6% ABV
