This beer takes its inspiration from the history books. As well as using flavour-packed chocolate and crystal malt, we also added treacle (molasses) which gives the beer its rich, bittersweet character. 100 years ago in Scotland, treacle was used by brewers to create depth and sweetness and to give beers a richer mouthfeel and more rounded finish.

Good deep brown pour w/ a tan head that leaves lacing. The aroma is very nice! It reminds me of a Jim beam & coke & an aroma truly unique to a y beer that Iíve ever come across. The taste is far more of a scotch ale than a porter. Itís caramel sweet & lacking in any chocolate or roasty notes. I like the originality but whether or not it pulls it off, is in the palate of the beholder!

Poured beer from 11.2 oz brown bottle. Appearance looks expresso dark. Aroma with molasses along with a fruit note. Taste is mild booze, caramel, nuts, and brown sugar. Palate is medium but syrupy. Pretty good but very molasses-y, lol.

Chocolate and very treacle, dark red and dense with very minimal head. Very treacle taste - too sweet for my taste. Fairly thin, flat carbonation. Not a favorite.

Pours a dark redish amber with a small off-white head. Mild malty aroma reminiscent of root beer. Smooth creamy flavor with a light molasses finish.

weordie (146) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Pours deep black but no head to speak of. Aroma of treacle and a touch of smoke with hints of chocolate and oranges but its a faint aroma. Taste is of treacle and a hint of bitterness. Very sticky. Tastes fantastic.

Clear deep dark mahogany with an off white head. Aroma of candy and caramel, very sweet, very nutty, some bubble gum and toffee. Taste nutty and caramel at first, loads of bubblegum mid palate, roast, toast, and some ash at end. I can see why this is a "Scottish porter" - itís what would happen if scotch ale and porter got together and had a child...

ILduce (215) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle Lcbo. Red brown colour with beige head. Aroma is week with dark fruit, hops, toast, and gingerbread coockies. Taste is similar, but with a front load of molasses. Smooth, but thin for a porter. Itís interesting and yet it is still so much of the same from I & G.

330ml bottle in a box as Treacle Porter - Deep ruby red body, with a small fluffy beige head, which lasts fairly well but does not leave too much lacing. Aroma is treacle toffee, vanilla, some cake fruits and a bit of chocolate too. Taste is all over the place with this, but not in such a bad way, as the sweet treacle is married up with an odd floralicity*. Not as thick as Iíd like, but still not too bad. * © jamesie1857
