Pours darkest amber. Minimal tan head.
Aroma is mostly honey, as expected. Aloe and caramel as well.
Light and thin. Long bitter finish with clear notes of honey and coffee. The ending is the best part.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 0,5l from Interspar Zagreb. Dark brown clear body, beige small head. Aroma of sour mead or homemade honey wine, fermented honey. Taste is dry, little sour, moderately bitter. Dark malts, grains, honey, yoghurt, coffee, citrusy hop – strange combination, but very rich flavor. Full body, low carbonation.
Fine, but aroma is unpleasant for me.

Flaske delt med Willy på brygga: "A delicious mellifluous beer" sier de selv. Mellifuous: sweet or musical, honeyed, mellow, soft, soothing, rich, smooth, harmonious. Sterk honninglukt. Smaken er fullstendig ute av balanse, "denne henge ikkje sammen" sier Willy, og jeg er helt enig. Hverken soft, mellow, soothing, smooth eller harmonious.

2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, dark ruby/amber colour with small, frothy, light brown head and nice lacing. Very strong floral honey aroma with some chocolate and espresso in the background. Taste is light sweet with honey and not so pleasant soapy mouthfeel, while finish is light bitter. This honey taste goes way on the soapy side and after drinking half of a beer, it’s became annoying and unpleasant. Aroma and appearance promises a lot, but flavour and watery palate takes away my good opinion about this beer. Don’t waste your time with it.

Really do not like the porter. Too much honey and raisin notes. But in general, is not so bad

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml bottle from a supermarket in st. Petersburg, dark brown colour, small mostly lasting frothy beige head, lacing. Aroma is mostly floral honey with moderate nutty and grainy malts and some minor hops that are barely distinguishable from beneath all the honey aroma. Taste is initially moderately sweet with light acidity, turning into mildly bittersweet finish with a roasty feel. Medium body, dry mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Way too thin for a porter and the honey was way too dominant and felt a bit artificial.
