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

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle, 50cl. The beer pours a dark brown color with a light head. The aroma is strong and unnatural honey. No honey i know smells like this beer. The flavor is very parfumed also with this honey flavor, that does not taste natural. The sweet taste of the honeylike flavor sticks in the mouth. Overall not a beer i want to taste again.

Luzern, 06. I didnít like this one much. Has a huge honey nose, very dominating. The taste was overly sweet, with more honey and unpleasant bitterness. There are much better St. Peters beers to enjoy.

thebeertourist (5003) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2007
Bottle. Dark bronze with a decent yellowish head. Aroma is almost all sweet honey, with a dash of chocolate. Sweet, chocolate and honey, slightly drier finish. Light-bodied. Honey overkill.

FatPhil (9905) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 3, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 500ml bottle. (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Pretty dark, dark creamy head. Sickly sweet aroma, like koffee-kreme(tm) filled chocolates, and a bit perfumed. Taste is similar, very sweet and even more perfumed. Not a serious drink. This used to be pretty good a few years back, but it seems like theyíve (relatively) ruined it. Too many additives, not enough beer.
Rerate: 2009/07 (Kaisla, Helsinki). Pretty much the same, but my tolerance to sweet additives must be lower - docking 0:0:1:1:1. No more charity for these guys - if itís dull itís a 5.

AndrewC (337) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2007
500ml bottle bought from the brewery shop. Purple brown in colour. Smells of rich honey with a hint of vanilla. Initial flavour is of rich, slightly sweet honey but quickly followed by cough-candy. The finish is of sweet, rich honey with a short lived roasted malt and brief hop bite. Overall itís quite drinkable but it does resemble the centre of a locket cough sweet a bit.

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2007
Bottle. Very sweet aroma of honey, strawberry ester, overripe fruit and a hint of dry malty chocolate. Bit weird frankly. Pours a clear dark red-brown, with a tiny off-white head. Sweet, very unique flavor of milk chocolate, honey and strawberry ester. Bitterish hops in aftertaste. Dryish mouthfeel, medium body. Bit too weird to be excellent, but interesting enough not to be bad. Certainly not very porterlike. More like a chocolate-flavored ale.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Bottle in Estonia of all places. Lots of memories tied into this beer for me. Has a brown character with golden tones. Characterisitics of the aroma are mostly sweet - honey and wild flowers. Much the same with the taste but also added in are roasted cofee qualities and a decent bitter finish. Most memorable was the great velvety feel to this beer.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 6, 2007
I have been looking for this one for a long time, and suddenly I found one. The color is black/brown and the head is moderate, but it leaves a nice lace. The aroma has a weird perfumed honey note, and so does the flavour, where I also get weak notes of coffee and a light bitterness in the finish. IMO it has too much honey and itís way to perfumed, and the body is thin and the overall impression is a disappointment.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2007
Dark reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma of sugary iced coffee made with cheap coffee essence. Taste is coffee-flavoured milkshake with vanilla ice cream. I s there some ginger too? Somewhere in the background is a hint of fruit and bitterness. This beer is indeed ítruly uniqueí as the commercial description claims. The trouble is that itís really not very nice.

pivnizub (9159) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2007
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, small lacing foamy layer; first comes an aroma of honey, giving later way for cacao-powder and chocolate; demi-sec bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, soft MF; again honey, caco, milk and a bit of coffe in the mainly dry bitter finish. Yes, a pleasant porter, especially for apiarists.........
