    Let me research. I feel like there are different grades/colors. You know, dark brown, near black, and black.

    According to wiki:

    Treacle is any uncrystallized syrup made during the refining of sugar.[1][2] Treacle is used both in cooking as a sweetener and as a condiment.

    The most common forms of treacle are the pale syrup known as golden syrup and the darker syrup usually referred to as dark or black treacle. Dark treacle has a distinctively strong, slightly bitter flavor, and a richer color than golden syrup,[3] yet not as dark as molasses. Golden syrup is the main sweetener in treacle tart.

    Production

    Treacle is made from the syrup that remains after sugar is refined. Raw sugars are first treated in a process called affination. When dissolved, the resulting liquor contains the minimum of dissolved non-sugars to be removed by treatment with activated carbon or bone char. The dark-colored washings[clarification needed] are treated separately, without carbon or bone char. They are boiled to grain (i.e. until sugar crystals precipitate out) in a vacuum pan, forming a low-grade massecuite (boiled mass) which is centrifuged, yielding a brown sugar and a liquid by-product—treacle.

    Huh. So it's lighter than molasses. Cool. Now I want to put it in something.

    Do I need to pull the wiki on molasses now? Maybe it's just darker than treacle?

    got this from a google search:

    In practice, however, there is
    a technical difference between
    treacle and molasses in that
    molasses is obtained from
    the drainings of raw sugar
    during the refining process
    and treacle is made from
    the syrup obtained from
    the sugar.
