tdtm82 (1260) - Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2015
Bottle, many thanks to madmitch76, shared with Simon at Round Tower Brewery, 2nd July 2015. Simon wanted to try this style so fortunately I was able to keep and bring this one. Aroma is pure honey, sugar, barely and bread. Taste is honey, sweet malts, bread dough, rye, blackcurrants and barely. Great bitterness. Really perfect for style. No oxidation. Reminds me of Chimay Rouge meets Thomas O’Hardy and a beer Thornbridge made with Heather Honey.. Really good honey usage. It was extremely clean and not oxidised. I am surprised by the low rates.

mateuszk (1040) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown/amber, white small head. In aroma malt, caramel, some raisins and honey. In taste caramel, candi sugar. The beer is sweet with medium to low bitter finish. Medium to full body, meidum carbonation. Sweet, big bodied and unbalanced by low bitterness. Not bad but I expected more.

Stor flaske, smagt sammen med Borup, den er lidt mørk i smagen som en Schwartz Beer er.

Holmen1 (3641) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Kveldens nest siste på denne elegante RBHD-samlinga på Tau okt-14: vinkork, stålwire og champagnesmell! Vi nærmer oss slutten, og selskapet virker fornøyd og på det nærmeste ferdigratet, men vi har fortsatt alle konsonantene i behold. Kobberfarget øl med aroma av brunost/prim og honning. Honning hele veien - perfekt for meg som har et sterkt avhengighetsforhold til nettopp dette. En betimelig wake up call når vi nærmer oss kveldens aller siste rating.

Sigmund (5799) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Shared 750 ml corked and caged bottle at local tasting, from the museum shop at Koldinghus castle. Deep amber colour, white head. Nice aroma of honey, sweet malts and mild spices. Sweet flavour, loads of honey, malts and spices. This is, after all, a beer with mead added - not a mead with beer added.

abemorsten (3265) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
0,75 l bottle at RBHD-gathering, Tau, Oct-2014. Deep clear copper colored body with a small off-white head. Fusel and honey dominate the nose. Honey dominates the mouth, which is very sweet. Full bodied and smooth. Quite drinkable.

Holmen2 (1882) - NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Pale copper. Off-white head. Aroma of honey, with a hint of herbs. Also sweet caramel. Similarly sweet and fruity taste. Well-balanced.

Jow (2749) - New York, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle at home this is something you’d rather share than drink whole thing but alas I took on challenge. Pours caramel with sweet honey and ginger on nose. Tastes of honey, toffee, orange peel, spicy ginger, lime, and raisins. Slightly Cloying and odd palate. finishes like orange soda

ClubGonzo (4753) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle from duty free shop @ Billund Airport. Pours a deep hazy bronze-hued amber body with a medium off-white head. Nose is caramel, grains, raisins and hints of honey and Norwegian brown cheese. Taste is caramel, raisins, toffee, honey and hints of brown cheese and candi sugar. Full body, medium carbonation. A pleasant "dark strong Belgian meets mead"-kinda braggot, though it feels a bit too unbalanced in sweetness to make it to the top notches. Quite nice though.
