2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strong honey and licorice aroma. Dark ruby color, small light brown head, good lace. Light sweet, strong honey, strong longlasting metallic bitterness, hint of licorice, rather thin. Paid way too much for this. It would have been cheaper to buy a pound of honeylicorice and it tastes the same.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Jerusalem in London. Dark brown body with rubt edges. Small brown head. Strong honey laden aroma. Some dark malt notes as well. Taste is creamy with honey, mild cocoa, sweetened malts, and hints of dark chocolate. Body is full with light carbonation feel and pleasant rosty notes. Finish with roasted malt, and more honey. Some light sugary notes as well. Great beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep brown a nearly opaque with small tan head nad okay lace. The aroma has notes of honey, carmalized and toffee malts, hazelnut, blackberry, and floral hops. The taste starts sweet and malty, heavy tasting but not heavy on the palate. Some traces of hops and nuts midsection with a fruity background. The honey seems to leave a sweet aftertaste and is close to becoming cloy. A good beer that for some reason I seemed to enjoy the whole more than parts in the end. I would not pass up another chance to drink one again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, almost black colour. No head, almost no honey flavour traceable, in the nose or first impression. Just in the aftertaste some sweet traces, maybe. I would prefer it a little more sweet, and bitter too.
This beer is lacking deepness.
