RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2007
Bottled. Red/brown, small quickly diminishing white head. Overpowering sweet, honey aroma. Tastes strongly of honey, with some roasted malts in the background. The balance isnít good, with too much honey. I had this as part of a 12-pack of St Peters winter beers, so have had three bottles of this. At first I didnít really like it, in fact wasnít sure I would finish the bottle. Subsequently the beer has grown on me a little, I was ready for the massive honey hit.

This is one of my favorites. It says honey on it and, guess what, it tastes of honey. I donít think this is a bad thing, but if youíre not looking for honey, then this isnít your glass of beer. Assuming you do, it has a nice feel on the palate, with a richness that compliments the honey flavor nicely. Had this one at the Jerusalem Tavern in Farringdon whose bartender suggested that I try it slightly cooler for a greater emphasis on the porter-ness. Now that Iím back in the states, I havenít been able to taste it at a warmer temperature, which she claimed would accentuate the honey more. Oh well. Still, a great beer and one that I would love to find in the states.

Classic bottle. A decent beer when its fresh and I must stress the fresh part. We got this beer about a week ago at work and it was great the day we got it with some creamyness to the plate and well balanced malt. This beer lets you search for the hops but as it gets older the hops will be harder to find.

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - JAN 11, 2007
Nice bottle. Colour is quite red in the glass. Aroma has a lot of honey and also a hint of metal. Taste is nicely bitterish softened with honey. Roasted and malty aftertaste. Not a bad beer at all.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Bottled. Deep copper-colored beer with an aroma of only honey, then heather, sweetness and forgetmenot. Honey and some coffee-roasted notes in the flavor. Thin body and not my cup of tea. There is way too much honey in it. Rating: 5-3-5-2-10-2.5. (061124)

Bottle, courtesy of tarjei. It pours a quite pretty amber to brown body, topped by a decent, beige head. The aroma has a slight whiff of smoke up front, but is soon overpowered by honey and heather, which completely dominates the aroma. The sweet flavor has almost only honey and heather, and even though itís sort of well-tasting, it gets too much. Thereís some notes of coffee and chocolate in the finish. Medium body. Way to honeyish, but still thereís some qualities. A bottle you share. (081108)

Fin (7704) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle, Majestic, Bicester, 23-12-06 in a St Peters mixed pack of four different dark beers.Pours a reddy brown colour with the most incredible honey aroma, far more honey than in any other honey style beer that Iíve ever encountered if there are any faults in this Deptí I suppose it is that the aroma is just a tad overpowering, but I liked it. flavour once again is a full frontal honey assault, or is that that nose still tricking the tastebuds? Regardless I rather liked this beer despite the one dimensional aspect.

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 (14141) - 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.
