Steam Machine’s husband and wife team Nick and Gulen have a brewing background of over ten years and Nick brings an academic approach to the magic of brewing as a science teacher.
Indulgent yet drinkable, Steam Machine’s milk stout Treacle Toffee does exactly what it says on the keg: there are big, sweet molasses notes with a creamy, caramel finish.
A brown-black pour with nice carbonation and a thin creamy tan head. It’s clearly an imperial milk stout – which is a good thing in my book.
Dark roast malts and bold dark chocolate come out all cylinders blazing before before a treacle sweetness follows up.
Sweet treacle and molasses, fruity and juicy hops, syrup and caramel with a fine velvety finish.
Brewer Nick’s academic know-how makes this a sweet, smooth, malty treat. Top of the class.
