2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of honey, roasted malt and grains with a hint of chocolate. Sweet on the palate with a slightly bitter dry finish. Not a fan of the honey action.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
RATED 5/14/2009 ON BEERPAL: I’m just a fan of porters, so naturally I like this beer. I disagree with the reviewer above who didn’t notice the honey. I actually fully taste the honey in the flavor, along with some other sweets from the malts. Aroma has hints of honey as well. The apperance is dark brown with a medium body. Not too heavy, a good dinner beer. I would buy it again, especially if on sale again for $6.99 a six.

"similar in body to the SA Holiday Porter, subtract spices, add honey, this is what you get. I like it just a touch better than the holiday. If you like dark beer and honey, this one’s for you."

Pours a nice darker color with white head. Honey on the nose, sweetness, malt, and some roasted character; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a honey sweetness.

Beautiful rocky head with plentiful lace on the glass.
Wow, the honey smell is quite strong. I was expecting it to be far more subtle. Needless to say, it is sweet. There is nearly none of the typical porter smells.
The taste is completely different from the smell--lots of cocoa, little honey or sweetness. Enough hop to create a bitter finish with chocolate in the background. Very complex. Good body and carbonation.
I like this beer although I find the smell to be a bit deceiving from what you ultimately drink.

A little too sweet for a porter for my liking..should be drier,but the honey aroma and taste were different.

Not a very good porter. The honey gives the beer a strange mouthfeel and an overly sweet character.
