Cola brown pour, little head. A little too sweet and thin despite the abv for my palate. Flavor of molasses light smoke and booze. One dimensional but pretty tasty. Ok. Not my favorite I&G, though...

Itís flippin 11 (celsius) in mid-August and Iím drinking a treacle porter. Seems about right...
Pours a nice reddish brown with a bit of off-white head. Lots of molasses, as advertised, with caramel, ripe banana, and a couple other things I canít quite identify. Taste is molasses, warm booze, and banana, maybe a bit of ripe stone fruit? A bit of chocolate on the finish, which has a nice little touch of bitterness to quell the alcohol warmth. Itís more drinkable, and less heavy, than I expected, but maybe thatís the weather.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark, rich amber brown with a thin head. Sweet aroma - caramel, coffee, loam, peat. Full, complex flavor, sweet up front with a bit a dry bitterness afterwards that keeps it from being cloying. Flavors of caramel, coffee, molasses, bourbon and some spice. Smooth with a dry aftertaste. Good special occasion beer.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into the Innis and Gunn tulip.
The appearance was a semi-dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute leaving some light spider web lacing.
The smell had a rich bittersweet cocoa bean aroma running around some nice woodiness.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with somewhat of a sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but somewhat subdued allowing a nice smoothness about it.
Overall, I say this was quite an enjoyable beer worthy of having again.

Brown sugar is all over this beer. Pours clear brown not as cloudy and dark as most porters. Aroma is sweat and balanced. A sweat and malty brown sugar bomb.

(bottle - 330 ml) Ruby pour with a thin tan head. Big sweet malt aroma with tons of caramel and molasses. Flavor is much the same. Buttery caramel and molasses with some sweet malts leading to a sticky sweet finish.
