Bottle. Dark brown with a large white head. Slightly smokey and sweet. Fruits? Chocolate. Medium body. Carbonated which makes it a bit harder to pour but not that bad otherwise. Not bad at all :-)

Pours a dark amber with a thick off white head. Aroma of honey and dark fruits. Flavor was similar, with plenty of licorice and caramel. Too carbonated, kind of ruined it. Meh.

12 oz bottle. Dark reddish brown color with thick peige head. Strong sweet, flowery and fruity honey aroma with notes of chocolate, licorice and hazelnuts. Dryer yet very honeyish flavor. Chocolate, coffee and nuts gradually come through behind honey. Tasty!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle thanks to Dickinsonbeer. Pours a deep dark brown with a thin light beige head. Musty aroma of coccoa, licorice and slight alcohol. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Flavor of chocolate malt and a slight sweetness probably from the honey despite it not being apparent in the nose. Average beer that is decent enough for a cold night.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Dark brown colour, almost black, with huge beige head. Spicy, roasted, slightly fruity nose with honey, liquorice, espresso, caramel and dried fruit. A whiff of smoke maybe. Roasted, slightly smokey taste with dried fruit, liquorice, smoke, dark bitter chocolate and a decent dose of coffeeish bitterness in the finish. Starts sweet with honey notes, turns drier towards the finish. Very tasty and rather spicy. Nice beer.
