Ossett Treacle Stout

I love this stuff, I really do. It’s got tonnes of latte-like coffee creaminess on the nose, which is followed by a more intense coffee hit. Within the deceptively rounded body there’s that sweet milk-chocolate note, which ends up super-sweet, courtesy of the treacle -and a slight hint of liquourice lurking in the background. You really can taste the bonfire-toffee treacle in there, but the red-fruity, slightly dry finish stops it being too cloying. If you’re after a fantastic stout – one that packs a lot of flavour into a modest 5.0% abv, this beer is for you. Lovely.
