Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2010
(Bottle) Pours deep mahogany reddish brown with a sand-coloured head. Typical super meaty, sweet and fruity Traquair aroma with notes of salty ham, broth, figs, prunes, black cherries, sticky raisins, toffee/fudge/butter, caramelized nuts, vanilla, orange marmalade, dried apricots and brown sugar. In addition, some black tea, herbs, flowers/tulips, juicy dark bread and earth. Some Belgo-ish esters. Only hints of hops. The nose is unique and complex, like many other Traquair beers. Touch of alcohol. The flavour is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Meaty, dark fruity, dark sugary/syrupy/toffee-ish and malty. Fudge and mild herbs in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is round and soft as well as light sticky with a light carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Hmm, Barley Wine? Reminds me more of a Quadrupel or a Wee Heavy.
