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."

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Popijeno u Stella Beer2Go dućanu i kušaoni piva u Medulinu. Aroma suhog voća i hrastove bačve. Tijelo je srednje gustoće , i vrlo je kompleksno. U okusu se opet osjeti i suho voće , a najviše šljive , i karamele . Ima i malo umjerene slatkoće što odlično ide uz aromu i navedene okuse. To je najbolje Englesko pivo koje sam pio do sada !

nephirem (805) - CROATIA - APR 12, 2018
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy deep ruby pour, no head. Minimal lacing. Interesting nose, malty, lots of caramel. Liquor and oak. Subtle smoke in the background. Medium body, soft carbonation. Smooth on the palate, really pleasant mouthfeel. Subtle bittersweet taste with a touch of alcohol burn. Aroma is malty, caramel and toffee. Candy. Wood notes, subtle smoke. Herbal liquor. Alcohol in the finish, nicely warming. Slightly sticky, gets a bit dry. Lasting boozy finish. Overall, fine quality ale. Rich, balanced and tasty. Lovely brew.

lbianchi66 (509) - FRANCE - APR 11, 2018
Robe brune. Bonne tenue de mousse. Arôme vineux, fruits noirs, fruits à coques. Goût biscuit, fruits noirs, vineux, chocolat, un peu de réglisse et fumé. Sensation légèrement huileuse, carbonatation modérée et fine. On sent une inspiration belge. Pas mal du tout.

JuanCC (182) - Valencia, SPAIN - APR 9, 2018
Traquair Jacobite Ale. Botella en 99Cervezas. Vierte en color marrón anaranjado ligeramente turbio con buena formación de espuma color café (con un toque anaranjado) de persistencia moderada. Poca carbonatación. Tremendamente sorprendente en nariz. De intensidad media, da notas muy marcadas de piel de naranja y sobre todo, naranja confitada. Notas licorosas (de licor de naranja, evidentemente). También hay notas de melaza y cilantro. Conforme se atempera, el punto licoroso se torna en notas como de barrica de whisky (lo que tiene bastante sentido teniendo en cuenta que es una cerveza escocesa). Complejidad media. De nuevo sorprendente en boca con notas intensas de licor de claudia y un fondo de whisky (de barrica, realmente). De entre los sabores básicos destaca el dulce, bien secundado y equilibrado por un punto amargo suave pero muy presente. Postgusto de caramelo quemado. Curiosamente, la intensidad de la naranja en nariz pasa a ser en boca una nota de fondo más bien suave. Sabor muy agradable y muy conseguido de porte licoroso, aunque sin que se sienta realmente alcohólica (es màs un tema de sabores que de alcohol). De cuerpo medio-alto y textura entre untuosa y aterciopelada. Carácter más bien cálido. Buena persistencia y final dulce pero nunca dulzón. Cerveza de trago corto, muy sorprendente. Pura naranja confitada en nariz y sabores licorosos. Sólo hay que probarla para darse cuenta de que se consume como un licor ...a pesar de tener "sólo" 8% ABV. Magnífica!
