Clear dark woody brown with an amazing off-white, light cream-colored head. Great retention. Nice malty aroma, though quite faint considering the abv. The flavor is pretty simple to be honest. Not much going on, and some definite soy character, which is my least favorite quality in a beer. Overall: I am disappointed. I LOVE all of the other Traquair stuff I have had, and this bottle was fucking expensive. Oh well.

Pours a mahogany color with a small tan head. Aroma of yeast, nuts, chocolate and light alcohol. Flavor of chocolate, malts and slight alcohol. Decent.

brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Pours an opaque dark amber color with a finger of frothy off-white head. Intense aroma of dark fruits and caramel to this one. Some plums and almost vinous red wine notes to it. Its also got an almost woody character to it. The flavor is sweet, but not overly so. A bit woody and vinous, maybe even tannic. Heavy flavors of plum and fruit skins. Dark sugar and molasses are also prominent. Medium to full body with low carbonation.

33 cl bottle @ Kahdet Kasvot as Traquair 2010. Rated on 11.12.2010
Aroma is sweet with somewhat harsh malt and ripe fruits. Flavour is rather malty and somewhat harsh with some ripe fruits, raisins and plums. A typical English Barley Wine.

Bottle. Latte colored thick foam. Brown and hazy color. Smell of sweet figs, cinnamon, raisins and alcohol. Taste is alcohol, caramell sweetness, figs and a hint of red berrries. Medium mouthfeel with an earthy bitter aftertaste. Not done yet. Needs cellering, now its to much alcohol taste.

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.
