Overwhelming smell of honey. Almost like mead. Great dark appearance. Lovely honey and chocolate tasting with a subtle bitter aftertaste. Yummy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djoeye (1508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2013
Green bottle b@eurospar. Beige head, leaving laceworks. Body’s dark red-brown. Strong scents of honey, just like opening a honey can. Taste of honey, caramel, mint, butter, a little citric far behind. Fat to palate. Finishes with more of the roasted honey malt stuff. Overall very sweet porter, but there is a little roasted bitterness underneath it all.

ERB92 (304) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2013
Honey(!), licorice and hints of chocolate, choco and coffee. Dark Brown with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweetness with a medium bitterness. Medium to full body with a soft carbonation. Overall not bad, but not for my taste. The licorice is is actually the main problem for me with this beer.

Erzengel (2609) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2013
Schon beim Einschenken entfaltet dieses Bier sein schönes Honigaroma - es riecht wie malzige Honigbonbons, schön süß. Der Geschmack hingegen erschreckt etwas - der Antrunk ist ziemlich herb. Im Hauptteil entfaltet sich eine schöne malzige Note, hinzu kommt das tolle Honigaroma, das sich auch noch lange im Abgang hält. Negativ allerdings fällt mir die Herbe auf, die fast das ganze Bier dominiert, vor allem den Antrunk und den Nachgeschmack. Sie ist für meinen Geschmack viel zu herb und dominant ausgefallen, so dass der Honig fast untergeht. Insgesamt doch ein Bißchen enttäuschend... (liegt vielleicht auch an meinen zu hohen Erwartungen...). Aber doch noch ganz trinkbar!

Graphirus (48) - - OCT 6, 2013
Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer, with a tiny beige head. Small lacing. Honey aroma is very prominent with some notes of malt, chocolate and toffee. Honey taste is overpowering after the first sip almost completely hiding the porter qualities. There is some sweetness. Next sips let appreciate malt and chocolate notes and of course more honey. Finish is a little bit bitter. Overall a strange brew, not bad by any means, but I doubt whether honey is a flavor I want in my porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beese (1802) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle from the St Peters Brewery. Poured a dark ruby with a thin beige head. Aroma of lavender, dark honey and sweaty socks. Initial dark malt flavour which is quickly replaced by an overpowering mouthful of honeycomb, which is totally unbalanced. That then fades to a pleasant enough mild sweetness, coffee and grain. It’s nicer after it’s been drunk, but each sip is quite gruelling...
