Traquair Jacobite

Scottish Ale Flavored with Coriander.  Really interesting stuff, very dark brown, sort of a cola brown, almost no head at all, just some pale bubbles around the glass.  My first impression is chocolate, followed by a hint of tobacco, and then a hint of the coriander. After the first sip I’m getting some of the spice in the nose, maybe that takes a while to develop.  I have to confess that I drink my ales too cold, or start them that way.  However, I sip slowly, allowing them to come up to a better temperature.  I like the cool, but I know that the flavors come through better at a cellar temperature than at a refrigerator temperature.  This is one that starts good and grows better as it comes toward room temperature.  This is one that I found at Ramsey Wine & Liquor. This place has a great selection of beer and ale, and very helpful and knowledgeable staff.
