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.
