TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle at Jerusalem Tavern in Farringdon (London), darkish with ruby tints, no head. A strong woody honey aroma. Bitter honey and clover flavours that cling to the mouth.

harrisoni (13828) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2006
500ml bottle at Jerusalem Tavern, London. Ruby/black with bubbly tan head. Very honeyed aroma. Lots of honey flavour. Wow, reminds me with the honey of sweet meads like Lurgashall, but not with the sweetness. Not much in way of a porter, bit of charcoal, bit of choc maybe, but the honey dominates throughout. Nice, if you like honey. Bit unbalanced, but interesting.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
Waxy, medicinal, honey and lemon Lockets nose. At last a honey beer that tastes honeyish. But far too much of a good thing. Some creaminess and bitter roast way back in the mix. But sticky, waxy, cough sweet, block-of-beeswax honey overwhelmes and ruins this beer.

Stefano (1880) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2006
Very dark, blood-red color, with a very small head. Lots of honey in the aroma. Very sweet and somewhat candied. Flavor is bitter, artificial honey and candy notes. Very odd, like medicine.

StueyD (1175) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2006
A dark reddish brown coloured beer with a thickish beige head. The nose is strong honey sweet, toffee and slightly alcoholic. The taste is again sweet, honey, caramel and toffee fudge, with a hint of vanilla spice, and just a hint of malt. The finish is sweet and smooth. I didn’t think it was as bad as the other rates suggest! (Bottle - purchased from the brewery’s stall @ the 2005 Sandringham Christmas Food Fair).

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2006 (Bottle at Haket, Göteborg) Pours dark red/brown with allmost no head. Smells honey! Some notes of chocolate. Sugar. Very unbalanced. Taste: honey! Flowers. Not so complex.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2006
[bottled in Hacket] Lots of honey, slightly heathery note. medium body, very sweet honeyish finish. A deeply unpleasant experience.

RobertGBG (109) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2006
A lot of honey, and a lot of sweetness, some bitterness hiding in the back, hard too see it as an porter, but I guess thats what they wanna call it.

larsniclas (5635) - Billdal, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2006
