2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl bottle. Dark ruby and clear. Short light brown head. Strong and overwhelming homey and beeswax aroma. Too strong and remembering a bweeswax made soap. Still honey and sweet in the mouth but with a bitter component. medium-light body, good carbonation. Just a hint of porter malts. The firs delusion by St Peter’s.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a dark brown with no head. Aroma is like that old honey bear honey, you know the one you squeeze the bear and honey pours out. Taste is heavy honey and bitter, also some leafy spice.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, 4.5% ABV, from Centra Colosseum. Light brown, bubbly head. Deep, dark brown with shining clarity. Prominent and inviting smell of dark honey. Honey sweetness in the taste, with roasted malts behind. Short tail. Perfumed impression and rather one-dimensional in flavour [hotel room in Oslo, 16.12.2008].

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[bottle] Dark ruby colour with a beige and short foamy head. Sweet, slightly malty nose with a distinctive note of honey, that covers almost everything else but a flowery touch in the background. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation. Light roasty malt character with notes of honey and something that reminds me of bubblegum. Sweet and moderately malty finish with flowery as well as spicy notes, plus a touch of coffee/mocha in the aftertaste. Not a must [13.XII.08].

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle, bought at Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. ABV is 4.5%. Very dark reddish brown colour, moderate creamy beige head. VERY strong aroma of honey, also notes of caramel and syrup. Creamy mouthfeel. The honey dominates the flavour too, but it is not quite as sweet as I feared. Notes of coffee and cough syrup, with a moderate hoppy bitterness in the finish. St. Peter’s Brewery has better beers than this one!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown colour with a ruby red hue. Small white head. Strong sweet honey aroma. Some notes of raisins and roasted malt also. Flavourful honey. Minty flavours with a sharp hop bitterness. This is much unlike any other honey beer I’ve tried. This one definitely tastes of honey and a lot of it too. Lots of mint there as well, but less so in the aroma. Perfumey. Floral. A very interesting and special beer indeed, but not really something I would want to drink much of. Finishing this half liter bottle is going to be a little challenging.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Airy tan head with big bubbles. Clear brown colored body. Honey dominates both aroma and flavor, sweet and alluring to the nose, sourish and stale in the flavor. The herbal heather notes does not stand out. Healthy body. Sourish ending. Honey don’t! ...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Centra, Oslo.
Strong pleasant honey aroma.
Not only sweet, but complex. Heather and flowers.
Smooth porter, but the honey dominates too much to make it a balanced brew.
