Close, but not quite there yet (to a real OP I mean)

First thing I'll say is that I LOVED this recipe (I like DARK ales)! Old Peculiar is my absolute FAVORITE BEER in the entire world (thus far anyway). It's very difficult to compare this head to head, as it's been a few years now since my last OP...but this is a very dark ale with a nice amount of hops and a very smooth taste. Still, something is missing/different...and if you can figure that out you'll have a real winner (and I might just have to move into your garage)!

Like the look of it.

On Theakstons web site they say they use 2 yeasts. I'm thinking of using Burton ale and Wyeast 3068 to get the slight banana taste they claim is a background taste in OP.
