COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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."

PlutonowyMan (1447) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2019 Kolor burgundowo brązowy, klarowny. Piana beżowa, średnio wysoka o krótkim czasie redukcji. Aromat: przyjemna słodka słodowość, ciemne pieczywo, dalej lekka paloność, karmel i akcenty przyprawowo korzenne. Tłem są tutaj ciemne suszone owoce. W smaku na pierwszym planie suszone, ciemne owoce, karmel ze słodowością, a dalej ciemne pieczywo i delikatna przyprawowa nuta. Jest słodko ale w normie. Na dalekim finiszy ostra, nieco szorstka goryczka. Jej charakter kojarzyć się może z przypaloną skórką od chleba, jest lekko popiołowa. Dobrze ukryty alkohol. Wysycenie średnio wysokie, nie przeszkadza. Treściwość dość wysoka, dodatkowo, gładka, nieco tłusta faktura płynu zwiększa uczucie pełni. Aftertaste chlebowo śliwkowy, dość długi.

Jabic (942) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 27, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2019 Ar: Prune, raisin; oxidation; vinous. Ap: Amber-brown and murky, small light tan head with low retention, fading into a mostly finely bubbled ring with a few medium-small bubbles and a little wisp of cover. T: Sweet plum; candied orange; a bit of almond; toast and biscuit; bitterness is very low; a bit of warming alcohol; nougat; dark caramel and rum; finish is like fruitcake. M: Medium body with medium-low carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: Very much an English old ale; nice mixture of fruit and spice; has an 'aged' flavor, but comes across in a refined way.

DraftDodger (3417) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2019 Copenhagen 14/10 2019. 33 cl bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard (Web-shop). Black label with the motif drawn in white. Guy with powder wig surrounded by thorny flowers. Pours unclear, dark Maroon with a small off-white head. Settles as thin patchy layer of foam unable to cover the surface of the beer. No Lacing. Aroma is fairly intense with light sweet fruitiness meeting some harsher saltiness with a touch of peat and Spice. Sweet caramel and berries. Liquorice, hints of anise. Light touch of smoke. Light carbonation. Slightly thick, oily, greasy texture. Flavor is lightly sweet followed by a stronger salty, bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter-ish with a herbal touch. Sweetish and salty finish. Nice and somewhat very Scottish ale.

HopsTrub33 (5) - - AUG 27, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2019 la première vue une jolie couleur ambré marron, le nez annonce une explosion de saveur. une fois en bouche s'est confirmé; les arômes sont très présents et restent longuement en bouche. la sensation du coup sur la durée de la dégustation peut devenir trop ' écœurante'.

ANZUShophunter (1378) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2019 From bottle (BB 2026!) in tulip. Pours dark brown w/1cm tan head that faded quickly. Aroma of molasses, aniseed precedes malt-driven taste almost a cola-like finish.

Luneylane (514) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUN 12, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2019 01.06.2019 - a bottle from Beers of Europe, drunk at home in Taipei on my return home from leave. Aroma: yeasty. Appearance: opaque dark brown, one finger tan head. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, soft carbonation, long and lingering bitter finish. Taste: medium bitter, port wine, vinous fruits, vanilla. Pretty close to the House Ale, though smoother. Again, good stuff.
