Well, I gave Old peculiar another shot last night. Just drinking it out of the bottle rather than from a glass it was better. From the glass it gives off that funky aroma I've encountered in other European brews, like Newcastle. It was probably old.....I am in Alabama, afterall.
Drinking it from the bottle contined some of the stench so it was much better. I'm not sure what style the stuff is, but it tastes like a brown ale to me. I've never been a big fan of brown ales, and this stuff did nothing to change my mind.
