rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2006
[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!

rlgk (15805) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2006
Dark amber, offwhite head. Honey aroma, malty, sweet with some vanilla. Way too much and too sweet honry in flavor. Sugary and very boring.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 30, 2006
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.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2006
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.

sysadm (25) - Århus N, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2006
Clear dark brown colour, almost black. Almost no foam, just some big bubbles floating. Aroma of honey and licorice, heavy roasted malts.

thewolf (11728) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
Pours dark red with good brown head. Aroma is powerful with a lot of honey - seems perfumed. The beer is low carbonated, tastes of honey first, then ends on a long highnote of burnt caramel.

Sully (1380) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - APR 11, 2006
It sounds really stupid but I really want to like these beers because of the packaging. Really impressive bottle that reminds me of the style those snake oil salesmen used in westerns. Also odd is the comment I make about the nose. While the appearance is perfectly acceptable the odour is ’funny’. Not a technical term of course but there is something hard to define about this beer. There is a peppery mustiness that initially presents followed by the undertone of honey. The taste feels unbalanced and lacking in body. all up this is not a beer that provides any real satisfaction.

Lubiere (11932) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2006
Clear drak brown with mahogany hues, and a thin lacing off white head. Rather vinous flowery honey aroma, like clove honey from the jar. In mouth, a rather sweet porter with light chocolate, roasted coffee beans, woody notes and definite honey coming lourd and clear. A bit thinner but very nice. I quite liked this one. BB 19 april 2006. From a trade with JM in BC.

FrankJohansen (3614) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2006
Brownish with a light brown head. Aroma and taste of honey, chocolate and coffee. A wanna-be-porter. lacks power.
