melush (267) - SPAIN - APR 18, 2014
Botella de 33 cl, adquirida en Cerveceria Internacional. Color marron oscuro, casi negro. Sabor a malta, con ligerisimo regusto a miel. Bastante carbonatada.

jjsint (498) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle @ Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Served in hazy glass so the blackness and the beige head can only be approximated. Smell of fresh vanilla, burnt caramel, bitter chocolate and oak chips. The alcohol is obvious from the aroma. A glorious full molasses and Clive sweetness greets the lips on the first sip. Full, syrupy palette, with the tickle of the carbonation like forepIay before the final carnal swallow. Ivdon’t get so much honey from this, but I love it all the same.

VincentKabel (106) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2014
Dark brown beer with a off-white head. High carbonation. Besides an malty taste nothing that makes this beer stand out. This beer is made with honey and that is the only thing that makes this something of a special beer. Not to much but just enough to give this beer a nice twist.

Cerveza negra de un aroma dulzón, que refleja el uso de la miel en su elaboración. Amargor agrable.

Délicieuse encore meilleur en brune que en blonde, miel dosé à la perfection.

bohort60 (14) - St-Nazaire De Dorchester, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Mousse fugasse...ne laissant aucune trace sur mon verre...mais bon belles arômes de bière belge...l’orange domine (presque grand marnier) ainsi que le caramel. en bouche l’alcool nous réchauffe...le goût coule au palet...et est très persistant. J’aime!

mathieuc (995) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours a dark brown with an ample offwhite (chamois even) head that leaves really good lacing. Nose is mostly of honey but there is also a definite fruity character to it. Taste is of raisins, plums and honey. It isn’t really sweet per se, though, just really malty. Honey isn’t big and bold here, it’s more of a background thing. Body is medium, carbonation medium-high. Alcohol is well hidden. A fair BSDA.

RaduLuchian (9) - München, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014 does not count
A dark-red coloured bock with subtle honey, fruity aromas and caramel taste. Thick body with brownish head and a slightly bitter-sweet aftertaste. I would definitely recommend this this beer to bock enthusiasts.

På flaska från Belgien. Kaffefärgad med en hög beige skumkrona. Luktar kalt kaffe. Först har den an svag smak av kaffe som följs av en syrlig citrussmak.

330ml bottle shared with jeevan. Pours dark brown, thick, but short-lived, beige head. Aromas mostly dark sugars and light herbs. Taste dominated by the candi sugar though. Sweet finish as well. OK, but I prefer beers to be less sweet.
