1/27/2011: Traquair 2020... Aroma: Chlorine followed
by some rich caramelized malitness. Appearance: Mahogony color;
mostly clear; deep beige head. Flavor: Nice caramel maltiness with a
slight butterscotch quality; good residual sweetness; almond
sweetness; quite European-like; alcohol is mostly hidden. Palate:
Medium-bodied; milky texture; smooth mouthfeel. Overall: Nice, but
probably needs a year or so to fully develop.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark brown, the small head dissipates, but itís a pretty beer in the glass head or no head.
The aroma is a whole bunch nice things, toffee, maple, apple... but itís not all dessert, itís earthy rich and well nuanced all around.
The flavor has a lot of nice chocolate & caramel. Itís still lightly bitter with some very nice light smokiness. Well rounded, big & interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle. Poured murky medium brown with a short, spotty cap of toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, aged caramel and dark fruits, with earth and fruity yeast accents.. warmth brought out molasses and light, complementary floral notes.. very nice. The flavor found tangy, almost woody notes on the tip of the tongue, with licorice, molasses, and lesser caramel following.. warm, dark fruits and yeasty dryness emanated outward.. tacky and muddled on the finish, with residual tartness. Medium-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. needed a little more carbo to keep moving.. overall a tasty and interesting brew.
