Dark brown, almost black colour. Minimal white head that fades away quickly. Great aroma, spice and malt. Nice mouthfeel, soft with very little carbonation. Very refreshing taste with slight bitterness in the end. Very nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle in pint glass. Pours medium dark like an opaque brown ale. Aroma is indistinct to my nose but inviting, a bit of breadiness. Taste is pretty good, not much on the front end, mild maltiness, a bit of bitterness and dryness. Alcohol is pretty well hidden for 7%. It took most of the 12oz bottle for me to really start noticing the sweetness. I prefer the Jacobite but this is interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby colour with disappearing head. The taste is very complex: it's malty, with light traces of caramel and wine flavour and it's a bit salty. Very particular, but not really my favourite beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle poured in a Trappist glass. Pours a very translucent dark amber colour with minimal head and a few bubbles of carbonation. Mouthfeel is flat and watery. Aroma is subdued however, hints at a malt dominated brew. Taste is the same as the aroma with toffee and spicy notes join the malt domination. Very average.

I'm pretty sure I had a bottle way past its prime, but I'm going to rate it nonetheless... The Beer poured with virtually no carbonation. The flavor was almost like drinking a Tootsie Roll. Disgusting! I'm not too sure what was going on with it, so I'll give it another try sometime.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured dark barley, slightly garnet, with amber edges and thin white head. Aroma was woody, licorice root, strong maltiness, and chocolatey scotch. Flavor was smokey peat, oak, vanilla, port, raisins, licorice root, very strong malt, a little caramel and a little chocolate, and a strong peaty finish . Palate was a little heavy but very enjoyable and ended with a little burn atop the tongue. Very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Balanced strength. Not overpowering like the typical Scottish; this genre is hard to calibrate well, I suppose. This is a good example of it being done well. Explodes in the nose.

500ml bottle - pours a reddish brown with a tan head. Figs, cocoa, toasted grain, anise for aroma. Flavor starts carmel toffee sweet with black licorice and light bitter chocolate notes in the finish. Traquair House Ale is a fantastic scotch ale.
