Can taste a very little of the sweetness of the honey, otherwise not much different from the Holiday Porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Close to black with a off white head. Smells of course like honey, and also liqurice and sweetness. Body is full of honey and burned sugar, and with lots of liqurice in the finish completed with some nice hops. Totally i think this beer is good but the sweetness of the honey maybe outchallenge the rest of the tastes

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Thanks to fata2683 for the trade! Pours medium-opaque brown/black, thick pale tan head, spotty lacing. Nose is honey sourness, malted milk balls, licorice, some dark fruits/berries. Smells lightly creamy as well. Flavours are quite fruit-driven in the mouth, notes of berry, fig, light fudgy notes, as well as some red and black licorice, finish is tight and lightly cherry-sour. Pretty alright and better than I expected.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear dark with red tints, soapy beige head that leaves lacings. Aroma is...honey. What a surprise. Lots of dark honey with some faint malt in the background. Taste is first A bit sweet, then quite sour in a weedy vegetable way, then comes some watery roasted malts with a wiff of honey. Watery body. Not very pleasant at all.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske 355 ml. Mørkebrun hælde med et stænk af rubinrødt. Lille off white hovnede. Det første der møder en , er en ristet aroma afløst af en sødme fra malt og honning. Smager meget humlet , efterfulgt af honningens sødme, og ristede malt smag. En tør gane som afløses af en velafbalanceret lang, lidt bitter finish. Et spændende samspil mellem Porterens lidt rustikke ristet smag og honningens sødme.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark red brown to black color, nice beige head. Think it’s a nice idea, though the honey isn’t as dominating as one could expect. Roasty malt, chocolate and coffee. Also a good bitter finish. I find it a bit too carbonated for a good score, but it’s absolutely a good porter
