Ungstrup (29372) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2004
A red brown beer with no head. The aroma is dominated by honey. The flavor dominated by honey but also contains notes of hops - which gives it a dry end. But the body is thin. For me this contains too much honey - or a too simple taste of honey.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2004
Dark brown coloured. Extremely sweet and cloying. Too much honey in the aroma and in the flavour. I would never be able to finish a whole bottle of this.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Almost black colored, hints of red. Little beige head. Strong sweet honey and vanilla aroma with mild chocolate. Thin to medium bodied. Sweet start in flavor, honey and vanilla are strong. Ends with dry tones, vanilla lasts in aftertaste with some perfume.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2004
Yet another fine beer from St Peters. Dark but not exactly jet black this is a very drinkable porter. Traces of liquorice and a gentle background of honey. The flavours roll around your mouth with the only complaint being a little thiness.But overall a very desirable drink.

JoeMcPhee (8497) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2004
This beer started out alright. Dark brown colour with a ruby tint and a light brown head. Nice lacing. Very fruity aroma, cherry and chocolate, cookie dough, and flowers. Taste is god-awful though, cough syrup (even the bottle looked like a bottle of cough syrup) and perfumey like baby powder. A bit too sweet. Finish is long but it tastes like somebody dumped perfume into a beer and then put it into a bottle. This has to be the strangest beer I've had to date. Although interesting, I just couldn't get past the medicinal quality and I had to dump it. Ten minutes later and I still can't get the damn taste out of my mouth.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2004
(Bottled, 4.5% ABV, BBE 06/2005) Very dark, blood-red color, with a very small head. An interesting aroma with dry, chalky stoutiness combined with sweet honey. Roasted-malty dryness hits you at first, followed by very dry, ashtray-like chalkiness, and finally some bitterness with ashes still clearly dominant. Honey doesn't really taste at all - I can only (barely) smell it. The style, in its dryness, is much more like a stout than a porter. Yes, it's a truly original experience. Good or bad - that's your choice!

TBone (12567) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 1, 2004
Bottled (alc. 4.5%)
Very dark brown, smallish coffee head and lace. Aroma is interesting strong honey mixed with hops. Taste is dark chocolate, roasted malts, some honey. Hops give bitter finish. Mixing porter with honey makes mixed feelings too, but basic of this porter is excellent.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Amazingly emphatic aroma of clover honey and balck currants...huge! Slight ammonia/urine retronasal. Looks normal enough, flavor is a blend of scalded sugar, burnt grain and the afore mentioned cassis, with a hint of babypowder...downright bizarre but still interesting ale.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - FEB 23, 2004
Smells like Hi-C fruit punch - very sweet. Dark clear brown color. Odd fruity body with a dry finihs. Like cleaning fluid at times - a chemical end. Like a bad experiment overall.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2004
Bottled at Jerusalem Tavern, London.
Pours a foamy beige head on a deep amber/red body. Lots of honey in the aroma. Very sweet and somewhat candied. Flavor is bitter, artificial honey and candy notes. Very odd, like medicine.
