All I can say is WOW, the taste is absolutely amazing! After my 1st experience with this, the search was on to purchase more (thank goodness Merchant DuVin is so accomodating in calling back!) I am waiting patiently for my next bottle. The flavor that arises from this quality ale are amazing, nothing like it I've had before, definitely one to keep in my top ten. mrbeakersalesman99 (17) - USA - MAR 8, 2001
Sketmen is full of it....if every one else here has given the beer almost perfect ratings and one guy trashes it.....then I totally do not listen to the guy who trashes it....this beer is very special lassewan (44) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2002
One of the worlds top beer.............................................. ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - APR 11, 2002
dark red brown color. thin head. tremendous aroma with berries , plums,chocolate, caramel and . Lots of malt present but the spices work well to balance the sweetness leaving this both a malty and sharp beer.the coriander spicing is apparent but subtle enough
to complement the beer without overpowering it. nice smooth mouthfeel and leaves a lingering taste on the tongue much in the way of a well ages scotch whisky.
perfection if not for the price mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2003
Basically this is a perfect beer. It has rich flavors, compliments a fine and leaves no bitter aftertaste. This beer has a real sweetness but not sickeningly so. It also has a dark and spicey undertone. It smells wonderfull and smells fantastic. If you could judge purly on appearence and smell this would be number one. However the flavor is also impresive and not only is it the best UK beer by a longshot, it also is perhaps one of the best berrs ever.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 Pours brown with a small head that lingers. Nose is strong with elements of raisins, prunes, coffee and nuts. Taste is of coconuts, nutmeg, bananas, coriander, rosted malts and afterhints of pepper and spices. This one’s a great beer and my personal favorite to date!

The scotch know a lot about barley malt. Traquair Jacobite is exhibit A. Rich, dark, somewhat sweet, filled with ripe raisin aroma! Truly a elicious and hearty brew. Toast one with some friends!! rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2016 Fantastic stuff. Went down way too easily for its strength. Thinner than I would have thought. Spices. A hint of the kind of sour in lambics. Serving: Bottle mark1969 (38) - edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2012

This is even better than their House Ale. At first I was skeptical, as this version had coriander added. But this is really one of the most outstanding ales I have ever consumed. Brewed in honor of the Jacobite revolution, this ale is a worthy competitor to Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout, the best brew in the world. Fitting. Do not drink too cold.
