1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma is seriously overpowering floural honey far too sweet. Taste is similarly bad, just another bad beer from a bad brewery.

[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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark brown colour, almost black. Almost no foam, just some big bubbles floating. Aroma of honey and licorice, heavy roasted malts.

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

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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