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."

DraftPours23 (569) - FRANCE - AUG 27, 2018
Brun très sombre, mais pas totalement noir. Opaque. Mousse très faible, bulles fines. Nez de café, pruneau. Très délicat. En bouche, le café est très fin, ensemble très doux, fort peu amer malgré les arômes de torréfaction. Le corps n'est pas trop puissant non plus. L'amertume vient surtout en fin de bouche, avec un goût de café, des notes boisées, caramélisées... Très bien équilibré, extra subtil, délicieux !

sinfull (2076) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2018
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2018 Interesting and unorthodox ( if you can say it about a beer with a long history ). Dark brown, medium-sized, off-white head. Spices, grain, dark fruits, caramel malt and cocoa in the aroma. Sweet but nicely balanced taste.

LazyPyro (2693) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2018
33cl bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of dried fruits, spices, malts, caramel. Taste is malty, dark fruits, caramel, spices, dried fruits, maybe some coriander but not sure I get that specifically, moderate sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth, soft carbonation.

malibrat (350) - Pula, CROATIA - JUN 16, 2018
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 !

alex_leit (6901) - Minsk, BELARUS - APR 17, 2018
Bottle 33 cl. BB 04/2024. Dark brown with garnet color, yellowish foam. Delicate aroma: fortified sweet wine (mixture of muscatel and vermouth), light spice, floral nectar, sweetness, a few herbs. Taste: light sweetness, nectar, slightly spicy wine, caramel and dark malt, heather honey, a bit herbal, soft bitterness, excellent balance, warming, drop of old Scotch whisky. Great beer.

nephirem (872) - 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.
