COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mainly available filtered in bottles, though part of the production goes unfiltered into cask.
The traditional brewing process used in the production of Traquair House Ale consists of the following; 1. Traditional infusion mashing process. The wort is then drawn off and boiled during which process the hops are added. 2. The wort is now cooled and pitched with top fermenting yeast under controlled temperature. It is then fermented in oak over a period of seven days. The beer is then transferred into cold storage tanks or barrels and matured over a period of weeks. After maturation the beer is filtered prior to packing.

19Oracolo78 (191) - ITALY - MAR 7, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2017 Virra dal bruno. Schiuma grossolana e poco persistente. All?olfatto sentori di legno e malto. Al palato corposa co note di malto, miele e legno liquoroso. Nel dinale rimane lievemente amara. Una vuona birra.

Mycket vackert rubinröd med medelstort skum, I doften finns: en underton av kaffe och russin, men mest mörka körsbär och fruktkola. I smaken finns en aning kaffe och torkade frukt men mest mörka bär och frukter, lite vinös, sträva ekfatstoner, liten balanserande beska. Stor, rund och mjuk munkänsla, En suverän Barley wine som trots sin fruktsötma inte blir sliskig.

Bottle. Dark ruby-red. Very malty, sweet, dark-fruity, strong ale. Treacly roast malt, lighter caramel, molasses, bitter chocolate balanced by hop bitterness. Whiskylike, smooth, warming. Great beer. (2008)

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown-black color, smooth beige head that stays at 1", stripes of lace. Taste is toasted malt that blooms through medium fizz to a toffee and light hop finish. Full-bodied, rich, complex, what’s not to like?

Love both Traquair House and Traquair Jacobite equally. Can’t pick between the two.

Graham77 (514) - SCOTLAND - NOV 29, 2016
330ml bottle. Small head, minimal lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, chocolate, a little alcohol and wood. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter, dry on the finish with notes of pepper and wood. The palate is medium bodied and chocolatey smooth. Carbonation is light. This is a full flavoured and very good brew.
