330ml bottle (Black Door, Helsinki)
7 Rich marmitey aroma. Some dark fruit sweetness, dates
4 Deep ruby, small tan head settles to a ring
8 Gently chocolatey roast, quite cakey in places. Some bitterness, stangely hoppy for Traquair.
4 Smooth sweet palate, quite crisp carbonation. Finish choc full with chocolate, and leaves
15 Certainly quite potent, but with the noble hop bitterness, the tingles you get in your mouth are not just alcohol. Look forward to having the chance of an aged one in 5 years.

SirLimpsalot (3938) - SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2010
Traquair 2010 r en barley wine med hrliga toner av torkat frukt, malt och brunsocker. Jag tycker ven den har en hrlig smak av st lakrits, och man blir rejlt kladdig om munnen nr man dricker den. Jag tycker alkoholen r lagom diskret lite het ska en BW vara enligt mig och eftersmaken sitter i lnge.

Vignale (3500) - Malm, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2010
I sanning ett maltvin. Som att dricka flytande malt. Fortfrande vldigt krv och smakar sd, sirap och alkohol. Ser fram emot att prova igen om ngra r.

omhper (24088) - Tyres, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2010
Bottled. Clear mahogany colour, small head. Fruity cocoa aroma. Sweet and full bodied with sugar and milk chocolate. Rather intense, but on the sweet side. Fairly low bitterness. More clean than complex.

[email protected] Pours deep red and has a beige small head. Nose is just perfect. Has deep aroma from nuts, sweet medium roasted malt, little vinous, pepper, red berries and little woody. Flavor is quite the same. Warming and palate is little oily. I like!

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2010
330 ml bottle @ Pub Kultainen Apina. BBE April 2020.
Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a minimal white head on the edges. A bit lacy. Aroma of fruits, toffee and slightly toasted malts. Flavour of caramel malts, oak, syrup and dried fruits. Medium bodied, slick/oily mouthfeel. Bit watery and thin, but alcohol is very well hidden here.

olsvammel (6601) - rebro, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a clear dark amber liquid with a very small dirty grey-white head. Sweet flavour of candy, brandy and caramel. Semi-smooth mouthfeel, medium amount of carbonation and thick body. A bit to alcoholic for my taste. Could use some more malt and residual sweetness. Might improve over time.
