3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown, mahogany color. Aroma is vanilla, honey, some toffee/caramel. Definitely some molasses notes as we say here in the states. Notes of the barrel, some dark fruit. Taste is similar. Vanilla is more present, with some woody nuttiness. Sweet caramel/"treacle". Slight grape/dark fruit note. Some hoppyness to the finish. Iíll take it! Thanks Cards04!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Pours a clear, dark ruby with a one finger, slightly off white head that thins to a ring. Aroma is large but not over powering with notes of raisins and other dark fruits, barrel notes, and caramel. Taste is slightly on the sweet side but very drinkable. Caramel paired with some mild barrel notes, dark fruits, and a hint of chocolate. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Very slightly syrupy in the mouth but not cloying at all. Slightly creamy. Overall tasty. Caramel, dark fruits, slight chocolate paired with a nice texture. Would get again.
