Osett Brewery: Treacle Stout


Do you like treacle? I like treacle pudding, but would I like treacle stout?

The pint arrived and had a huge strong treacle aroma backed with heavy dark malts.  It looked viscous, thick, and…well…treacle-y.

Funnily enough there was a strong treacle influence in the taste with a medium bitterness, again we get the heavy malts and some roastiness, but the whole thing was just so treacle-infused that I didn’t notice much else. The aftertaste was – predictably enough – treacle-based with a very mild bitterness on the back edge.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad…it’s not bad at all.  It’s just VERY treacle-based.  If you like treacle, you’ll love this.  I thought it was OK, but I wouldn’t want to drink a lot of it.
