The famous Bear Gates guarding the approach to Traquair House, near Pebbles, have been closed since 1745 - when the last person to pass through them was Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Now, 250 years later, the ancient Traquair Brew House celebrates the Jacobite cause by producing this potent spiced ale to a traditional fine recipe. Sip slowly and remember the old toast to the "King O'er the Water."

djorll (9) - FRANCE - AUG 30, 2020 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2020 brune épaisse mais souple, une odeur qui me rappelle le pain noir de mon enfance. Très équilibrée, on sent la levure, le grain, le houblon, un peu d'acidité et les épices. Un peu chère mais vaut son prix.

Mayina (16) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 17, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2020 Colore scuro, profumo di liquirizia e prugna. Sapore amarognolo, retrogusto di liquirizia. Buona birra.

Kookie (2) - - JUN 26, 2020 does not count
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2020 0.33 bottle Reddish brown color with little brownish head. Really sweet with caramel/molasses taste. Thick consistency pretty and strong aroma.

Hopverdju (3658) - BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2020

alesnake22 (90) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 25, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2020 Vino tinto, frutas maduras, maltas tostadas, un toque a barrica, azúcar moreno, requemado, como caramelo y algo de naranja.

JoTheO (562) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2020
UPDATED: APR 17, 2020 Bottle 330ml (stored for approximately 2 years). Dark brown, nicely colored beige head. Excellent aroma of berries (cherries mostly), molasses and caramel. Sweet taste, heavy on the caramel. Milky thick texture withsoft carbonation. This is a great beer, especially after storing it for a while.

tombyars (2125) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2020 330ml bottle given as a birthday present from Derek & Tom - cheers lads! Sampled on the 13th March 2020. Pours a clear dark copper in colour with a thin dark buff head. Rich malty aroma with notes of prunes, old leather and treacle. Thin creamy mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt complex delivers a rich robust Dundee cake base with syrupy figs, dates, blood orange and barley sugar twists evident. Little in the way of hop resins noted in the short aftertaste but there is a hint of nutmeg or mace noted in the spice flavour. Powerful malty finish with the signature Traquair Barley Wine flavour all apparent. Rich notes of dates & figs with blood orange adding a slight sweet citrus tang. Roast malt grain, old leather and burnt caramel add to the boozy mix. Fantastic Barley Wine and highly recommended.

williamlantz (468) - SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2020 Dark brown, almost black colour with a small head. Aroma: spices, malt, sweet dried fruit, some caramel, some floral notes. Taste: malt, yeast, brown sugar, caramel, some 'julmust', spices, some floral notes, some oak, some dried fruits, nutmeg, plums.

ophone (1309) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 2, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2020 Brown with just a film of a head. Malty smell with a strong molasses/raisins note and a little coffee. In taste whisky malts, alcohol and a little creamy coffee. Almost inexistent carbonation.

fillepolo (2692) - SWEDEN - FEB 29, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2020 Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a murky brown colour beer with a smal head. Malty with notes of chocolate, roasted malt and banana. Dry finish.
