A traditional English porter made with honey for a truly unique aroma and taste. A delicous mellifluous beer

Tranquillity (1510) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2008
Bottled. Dark brown, thick beige head. Strong honey-malt aroma, some roasted dark bread as well. Taste a bit drity bitter, with a honey finish that’s a bit artificial (dunno why though). Excellent palate.

liinis (1728) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 25, 2008
Dark red brown colour, small off-white head. Looks like a quality beer, but disappoints you . strong honey in both aroma and flavor but somehow mildly repulsive and artificial.

berkshirejohn (5291) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2008
500ml bottle at 4.5% ABV. Wow! Raspberry red when held to the light, otherwise a dark reddish chestnut; beige head leaving good lacing; strong honey aroma, with perhaps a touch of vanilla; lots of honey flavour as well, with a oily, honeycomb waxiness; and an unusual dry smoky finish. You’d have to like honey to like this. I think it’s great.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
What a %^&* weird beer. Pours a deep ruby red with a spitty-looking head with some spitty lace. Aroma is of hand-cleaner, floral but industrial. Flavour is, to sum, "wha?" Very odd dark caramel, some astringent hops, sort of soapy - that hand cleaner taste again - floral remnants of the fermented honey. Body is nearly flat, a bit of thickness to it. I could try and find some sort of redeeming qualities here (nice bitterness, notes of alcohol, nice finish) but really it tastes like they were aiming for something else and this is what happened. What a bizarre beer.

Carlus12 (361) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2008
Bottle @ The Rake. Pours ruby colour with small off-white head. Aroma is dominated by honey, some caramel, malts. Taste is much the same. A little too much honey for my liking although there are worse beers out there.

TaxiDriver (1567) - Stadland, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle. Strong sweet smell of honey. Small fizzy-creamy brown head, fast and fully diminishing; dark red body. Average duration, very bitter, the taste of honey is very present (too much for my taste). Light to medium body, dry texture, flat carbonation. Not really my taste

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2008 Bottled 50cl. It pours a ruby brown beer with a small tanned head. The nose is extremely interesting with notes of berries, honey, mocha, smoke, home made caramel, tobacco and candy accompanied by a lot of vanilla. Surprisingly bitter taste. Wonderfully smoky, woody with candy, caramel, honey and vanilla showing up. Decent lacing. Slightly milky and leafy. Very smooth. Leafy finish with hints of coffee and licorice. Initial rating: 9/4/8/3/16. Rerate: Lots of candy, vanilla, honey and caramel in the nose. Wonderfully balanced, nicely bitter touch. Some wild strawberries, candy and vanilla showing up in the taste. Smoky. Very nice mouthfeel. Outstanding finish. 9/4/9/4/17 - 4.3

Bottle- Dark brown in colour, the aroma is predominantly of honey and it is rather appealing but also seems slightly too perfumed to be natural. The flavour is also of honey with some slight roasted notes. It is a shame because I think that the honey dominates this beer too much. Maybe they could do it with less or more natural honey and stop the aroma and taste of the honey from dominating quite so much as it detracts from what may have been quite a good porter!

Christian (11893) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2007
Red brown beer with a small head. Taste and smell like artificial honey - like honey flavoured cheap candy.

Bottle.50cl. This is at best, a very bad beer. it taste like you have grinded a hole bee hive, in to a bottle.
