COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

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.

bigguns22 (633) - Maryland, USA - JUN 29, 2014
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.

Very smooth rounded porter, with a very pleasant, balanced flavour. Treacle sweetness well balanced by hops

Maltser85 (240) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - MAY 20, 2014
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. I’ll take it! Thanks Cards04!

cattaneopapa (146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Innis & Gunn Treacle Porter. 330ml bottle. 7.4 % alc./vol. Toronto, ON. Pours a clear brown colour with a mocha head which recedes to a 1/4" ring. Aroma is grapes and dark fruits. Taste is boozy and has notes of caramel, dark fruits with a well-balanced hoppy finish. Has a oily, light body with moderate carbonation.

sudomorph (515) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2014
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.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle at home from my local Tesco. Poured a deep clear brown with a thin short lived beige head. Aroma of treacle, dark fruits, lick of spice, some caramel, hint of alcohol. Quite like that. Flavour has treacle toffee, malts, oak and wood, butter. Nothing like a porter but I quite enjoyed it, plesantly surprised. .

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2014
Pours a half finger of head on a clear brown colored body. The aroma smells like caramel candy. That’s it. The taste is caramel sweet overall with some bitter metallic notes in the middle. It’s not particularly pleasing. The texture is thin with moderate carbonation. I did not enjoy this beer.
