1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(33 cl bottle; BBD: May 2011 - bought it three days before rating at the supermarket "SuperBrugsen Nørrevold") This seemed like the perfect beer to taste on the eve of the DNC acceptance speech. Little did I know. Pours dark brown with little off-white head that fades quickly and leaves some lace. Big chunky floatie in my glass and the honey seems to have separated to form little oily beads at the Gulf of Mexico in the bottom of my glass. Initial aroma a pleasant burst of honey and roasted malt. The harmonic blend doesn’t seem to have staying power though and after the initial honeymoon cardboard and rotten fruit come to the front. Watery texture, soft carbonation, lingering roasted bitter finish with a metallic note. Taste is initally metallic followed by a watery roastedness. Frankly I’m disgusted that SuperBrugsen would sell me beer that old. Girlfriend says: "Tastes a bit like tea. A very herbal taste that stays on the tongue."

(Bottle). Sweet aroma of roasted malt with a distinct element of chocolate. Taste of roasted malt and chocolate. A bit dry and rough in the finish. Rich in flavor and tasty!

A full-bodied English-style Porter, this brew has a substantial roasted malt character. Brewed with traditional English Ale hops and sweetened with Scottish heather honey

Pours very black with a small head. Malty aroma with some cent of honey/tofee. Taste is rather sweet with some noticable roasty bitterness with a finish that doesnt pick up until after a few tastes. Medium bodied beer but light palate, runs down easily. overall a fine porter.

Bottle, pours dark reddish with medium tan head. Aroma is honey and some roasted malts. Taste is honey, some hops, roasted malts. Light mouthfeel for being a porter. Too much honey and some weird flavor I cant put a name on. Just became worse the more i drank it. Fy fan

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted bottle from Brewmaster’s Collection mix-pack into nucleated pint glass. Poured a clear dark brown with firm beige head which quickly dissipated, little lace. Fairly mediocre porter aromas and flavor. Some honey in the nose, very little honey taste, but I’d prefer this to overdoing it with cloying sweetness. Pretty tasty, I’m glad I tried it, but I doubt I will purchase it separately.

Pours a dark red brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and some mild honey. Medium bodied with roasted malts, chocolate, honey and some dark fruits. Finishes a little bitter. Not bad.
