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."

rougeau13 (4310) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2021 Bottle. Dark clear mahogany brown with a beige head. Complex aroma of dark fruits, oak, caramel, toast. Light sweet, toasted, lightly bitter and lightly spiced taste. Medium bodied with somewhat soft carbonation.

BillWyce (1396) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2021 Pours an opaque nut-brown with a small, thin bone-colored head that was gone quickly. Aroma of nutty malt mixed with coriander and a touch of wood. The body is medium-to-full and a touch syrupy. The finish is mild, with just a touch of boozy astringency. A nutty malt flavor sits beneath a note of coriander. A light woody note shows at the back.

Oscbert (1597) - Lincoln, California, USA - NOV 12, 2020
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2020 Strong malty caramel and bready notes with chocolate and raisin Pours a very dark murky brown with small wispy light tan head Woody oak flavor with light chocolate bread Medium bodied with medium co2, lingering woody finish. Aroma more interesting than flavor. Easy to drink and enjoyable. Good rainy day brew.

dandeman (1664) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2020
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2020 Français: Olfactif dominé par la mélasse avec accents de fruits noirs et quelques épices. Un col de mousse moka s’attarde sur un liquide brun aux reflets rubis, plutôt limpide et avec une bonne effervescence. Mélasse et fruits noirs accaparent l’entrée de bouche, soutenu par un alcool épicé et enveloppant. Avec peu d’amertume, cette bière se concentre surtout dans les sucres de fruits noirs, soutenue par une effervescence vive, le tout dans un corps moyennement léger. English: Olfactive dominated by molasses with black fruit accents and some spices. A collar of mocha foam lingers on a brown liquid with ruby reflections, rather clear and with a good effervescence. Molasses and black fruits grab the mouth, supported by a spicy and enveloping alcohol. With little bitterness, this beer is concentrated mainly in black fruit sugars, supported by a lively effervescence, all in a moderately light body.

Photogeny (78) - FRANCE - OCT 2, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2020 Robe noire profonde avec une fine mousse blanche Côté nez, nous côtoyons de fines senteurs de porto, de miel, d'acacia, de sureau, de chocolat et de réglisse L'attaque est légère telle un funambule, on sent des notes des pruneaux, d'épices, de réglisse, de noix et de caramel En bouche, c'est un pur régal, c'est fin, précis et onctueux en bouche, une excellente découverte !! Bravo !!

mylos86 (67) - - SEP 23, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2020 Donker bruine kleur, licht beige kraag die snel bijna helemaal verdwijnt. Neus: medium intens. Karamel, hop, daten. Vol, rond en medium zoet in de mond. Weinig carbonatie. Smaken van koffie, karamel en melkchocola. De afdronk is lang, licht bitter en doet met name aan koffie denken.

djorll (10) - FRANCE - AUG 30, 2020
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 (41) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 17, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2020 Colore scuro, profumo di liquirizia e prugna. Sapore amarognolo, retrogusto di liquirizia. Buona birra.
