COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Akin to a barley wine, we suggest this ale as an after dinner drink. It has a truly unique & sophisticated flavor due to the use of wildflower honey as the catalyst for the production of alcohol. We simply use pale malt and a very small amount of Target hops in this Belgian style ale. The bulk of the body, color and sweetness come from the 2,000 lbs. of honey we add to the boil. The Brother is cellared for up to a year before it is bottled, which helps to marry the flavors and create the complex palate in this Bragget.

An interesting yet intense honey beer. Pours a beautiful deep amber with a super thick white head. Huge honey smell. Taste is very very malty, with a bit of spiciness in the beginning. More sweetness in the finish, with a bit of booze as well. Had on tap at the brewery.

bomber shared poured a medium yellow color with no head. the initial aroma was sweet malt and plenty of honey. a must sipper because the alcohol Is well hidden in the aroma and flavor. the flavor itself was very good lots of sweet honey. overall very good

Smells mostly of honey and syrup. Deep, complex flavors of honey, dark fruit, molasses, syrup, caramel, toffee and some other sweet stuff. A bit warming but the alcohol is barely present. If I could find one knock on this beer it would be that the body is just a bit thin. Overall, however, an excellent beer.

Bottle sampled at Proletariat with Linh, courtesy of Cory - thanks man! Pours a deep, murky mahogany body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is rich honey, molasses, maple syrup, light oak and super dusty basement. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with notes of sweet honey, maple, molasses, toffee, caramel, light oak and dark fruit. Nice.

Color of honey, 1 finger white head. Aroma is pure honey. Opens a bit thin, with some cloying honey in the finish. Really interesting.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a red/brown/copper colored body that leaves a small off-white almost light tan film of a head with lumpy valleys, some ever so small bubbles trickle up making a clear ring around the top. The smell was sweet, its mainly the honey that comes out very strong. Some yeasty wheat tones come out as well. The alcohol comes out in the smell. The taste was sweet through the honey once again trying desperately to block the alcohol, but I definitely notice the alcohol in the taste. On the palate, it was smooth and wet, a good medium carbonation feel yet a slight harshness on the tongue Overall, though I can feel the alcohol burn going down, this is almost hard to believe this is a beer. This is definitely a dessert beer for two reasons: 1) the sweetness 2) the abv will help you sleep. I would definitely get this again.

If looks tasted and smells like a mead. Aroma is straight honey mead, sweet and somewhat raw. Flavor brings honey mead as the backbone which games the resiny sweetness of the malts so well.

Pours a hazy amber color with little head. There’s a bunch of sediment floating around. Aroma is of malts, raisins, honey, and a little clove. Flavor is the same. A little more bitter than I was expecting. Leaves a bittersweet honey and malt finish.

BrettTaylor (474) - Radford, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2013
A 2011 bottle consumed in 2013. This was delicious and makes me wish that I’d brought more back from the brewery. Aroma - lemon, honey, toffee, cherry jolly rancher, butterscotch, becomes more raisiny as time passes after opening; taste - sour, tart, warming with bread baking, honey. This has aged amazingly well. If you have some, let it age and see how well this ages.

merc7186 (2035) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2013
A: Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Minimal Lacing S: Honey, Raisins, Mild Sweet Malts T: Honey, Sweet Bread, Mild Raisins M: Average Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Semi Sweet Overall, a nice easy drinking Braggot that wasn’t too sweet or sugary. Honey flavor seemed pretty genuine.
