3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a descent head. The aroma is weird, and the association I get is a dirty, wet dog! The mouthfeel is semi-oily. The flavour is complex, the notes are earthy, basement, wet, dirty dog, raisins soaked in rum and port wine, myrtle, oak and tannic acid. A very "alternative" beer that is a challenge to the taste buds.

Bottle (purchased at the brasserie): Hazy, ruby amber coloured, small, but persistent foamy layer; moderate toasted-malty, dark-malty and chocolatey nose; solid bitter-sweet flavour, soft MF; lingering fruity, a bit warming and port-wine-like finish. Good, good good......

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz bottle. My first-ever ale from Traquair, poured into a snifter. Minimal sort of khaki head. Khaki web of head floating on the surface. Small bubbles on the side of the glass. Hazy dark red-brown color. Little lace. Nice, light crisp carbonation, drier texture. Nice, dark fruity malty estery aroma, very interesting. Kind of like molasses, but not sticky or heavy, kind of somehow fresh tasting, actually. Light hops. Nice sweet taste, light bitter. Pretty interesting and tasty ale.

This beer has a fantastic burnt coffee and dark chocolate taste with a long dry finish. Belgians would be proud of this.
