January 26, 2013; 7.4% abv, 650 mL, branded stemware
Complex spice aromas - vanilla, alcoholic spice. Dark fruits and thick malts also present. Pours a clear mahogany with thin tan head, leaves a nice lace. Generally malt character with a slightly acidic taste. vanilla, licorice, booze - all present. Slightly watery body, which is surprising. Bitey carbonation is nice. A pretty good offering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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. It’s interesting and yet it is still so much of the same from I & G.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 I’d like, but still not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as Treacle Porter, pours dark brown with a beige head, woody vanilla nose, body perhaps more reminiscent of a sweet brown ale, hints of cocoa and vanilla, toffee and a faint herbal bitterness. Unusual and quite pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Beautiful new-penny-copper pour with a mid-sized, fluffy, off-white head. Decent retention. The faint aroma is a malty fusion of caramel, molasses and maple. Full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is constructed of sweet caramel, toasted nuts, sorghum molasses and a light fruitcake nuance. Sweet, malty, sugary finish. No balance here. Not supposed to be, I suppose.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Doesn’t taste like a porter, and has the same heavy vanilla characteristics of one of their other "aged" beers, that tastes almost artificial.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma has oak, brown sugar, chocolate, toasted bread and light hops. The appearance is dark brown. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a solid beer if not a porter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown. Interestingly tastes like all the others - sweet toffee and vanilla, don’t get the treacle or any porter characteristics.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, dark brown, small tan head. Smell is faint, with hints of oak, liquorice, raisin, caramel and coffee. Taste is sweet and earthy, with hints of vanilla and cocoa. A bit light on the palate, soft carbonation, and a long lingering finish with a pleasant alcohol warmth to it. Good beer to warm up with on a cool evening.
