Great big Malty English beer, the black treacle gives it a very unique flavor.
20lbs Marris Otter
1lb of Treacle - added with 15minutes left in the boil
5oz of Willamette(4.7%) at 90min
Mashed for an hour at 152, then batch sparged.
Actually spent two months in the primary, mistyped it in the field above.
Out of over 25 different recipes my brewing partner and I did last year I think this was our consensus favorite. Has a tone of depth and complexity from such a simple recipe, really starts to get good after 2 months of ageing.
We named it after the Black Lyles brand of Treacle we used, and I tried to make the label look like and old bottle of snake oil or miracle tonic.
