Top 10 beers for winter

Innis and Gunn Winter Treacle Porter

Innis and Gunn Treacle PorterPorter originated in London in the 18th century and is a well-hopped dark beer that is made using brown malt – an ideal base for a winter beer. This 7.4% abv Treacle Porter is a seasonal addition to the range offered by Scottish brewer Innis and Gunn and sees a “touch of treacle” added to the brew.

The brewer says that this helps, “helping to concoct a lingering, bitter-sweet taste and uncommon depth of flavour”. The beer has a rich maltiness and won a silver medal in the 2012 World Beer Championships and is said to work well with “roasted chestnuts, mature cheeses or rich fruit cake”.
