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. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2011
Opened this bottle last night to celebrate Amy’s birthday. Picked these up from West Lakeview, Capone’s, and Rick’s. I’ll give them each an assist. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Pour yields a bronze brew with a bit of a garnet hue. Nice tan head sticks around for a bit and leaves a few legs on the side of the glass. The nose starts out with some dried plum and raisin plus a bit of molasses and brown-sugar sweetness. There is some sweet sherry there as well as it warms up. The flavor is mostly comprised of lingering dark fruits and cherry plus some sherry undertones along with a molasses-like sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium with low carbonation; there is no booze but the finish is a bit too bitter, almost tannic. Drinkability was pretty good. Not super impressed with this one right now (although I had high expectations). We’ll see what it’s like in a few years.

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 (16609) - 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. It’s 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. laiti (8505) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2012

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.
