3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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).

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Bottle, RBESG 2006]
Dark amber colour. Loads of honey pastilles in aroma with a lurking chocolate feel. Flavour is less of honey and chocolate, but the berries are detectable. Light body. Boring!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark amber, offwhite head. Honey aroma, malty, sweet with some vanilla. Way too much and too sweet honry in flavor. Sugary and very boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark ruby, thin bubbly offwhite head. Very strong honey smell, not much underneath, some malts. Very strong honey in the taste, some light carbonation, malty, some dark chocolates. Malty bitterness in the finish. A bit sweet.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a opaque ruby brown with a light head.
Aroma starts off almost mead like upon pouring then the strong chocolate assertives itself completely as the brew warms
Body was thin but the flavour was enjoyable. Passing honey sweetness and bakers chocolate bitterness balanced well.
