Brown pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee with some heavy caramel notes. The flavor is more of the same with the addition of some nice dark fruit notes complimenting the toffee and caramel. The alcohol is also present. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

1/27/2011: Traquair 2020... Aroma: Chlorine followed by some rich caramelized malitness. Appearance: Mahogony color; mostly clear; deep beige head. Flavor: Nice caramel maltiness with a slight butterscotch quality; good residual sweetness; almond sweetness; quite European-like; alcohol is mostly hidden. Palate: Medium-bodied; milky texture; smooth mouthfeel. Overall: Nice, but probably needs a year or so to fully develop.

11.2 fl. oz. bottle (10% ALC./VOL.) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #148 for this beer.

Pours a dark brown, the small head dissipates, but it’s a pretty beer in the glass head or no head.

The aroma is a whole bunch nice things, toffee, maple, apple... but it’s not all dessert, it’s earthy rich and well nuanced all around.

The flavor has a lot of nice chocolate & caramel. It’s still lightly bitter with some very nice light smokiness. Well rounded, big & interesting.
A sipper.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2013
11.2oz bottle. Poured murky medium brown with a short, spotty cap of toasted beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, aged caramel and dark fruits, with earth and fruity yeast accents.. warmth brought out molasses and light, complementary floral notes.. very nice. The flavor found tangy, almost woody notes on the tip of the tongue, with licorice, molasses, and lesser caramel following.. warm, dark fruits and yeasty dryness emanated outward.. tacky and muddled on the finish, with residual tartness. Medium-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. needed a little more carbo to keep moving.. overall a tasty and interesting brew.

Dark brown color with no head. Strong malty aroma. A bit nutty and caramel. Flavor leans toward fruity, with plums and raisin winning. Some sherry and oxidization. Sweet. Thick feel.
