Thought this beer was a little too unbalanced. Too sweet and not enough hop for my tastes. I like a good porter but the honey just didn’t do it for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml. bottle from the supermarket. Pours very dark red-brown, with a nice thick head that stays around for a while. Leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. Aroma is full of a lot of honey and roasted malt, with some bread. Nice mouthfeel, creamy enough. Taste is a let down, nowhere near as good as the smell. Light hint of hops in the finish, the finish is dominated by the honey. This beer is somewhat one-dimensional: There is only focus on the honey, and not munch else. However this beer is cheap, anything else at this price is pretty poor, which makes this beer OK.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear dark red brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet and a little roasted malt but primarily honey. Flavor is rather sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. A bit light bodied. This porter lacks roasted malt, and the sweet stickyness from the honey is overdone. 120210

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.
