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.

Bottle 50 CL. Pours black with small brownish head. Notes of honey, chocolate, caramel, coffee. Heavy of caramel and honey in this. Way too sweet and thin bodied to be good. But still drinkable.

At a private tasting in Serbia with markoijelena and luttonm. "Pour it" black with chestnut skin reflexes and a thin off white head. Nose: sweet, honey a bit disturbing. Mouth: watery, candy for kids and a residual bitterness. Watery. Crazy experiment but no I don't like it.

The aroma is strongly honey but excessively so. The taste is a bit more mild, thankfully, but this isnít the best flavoured porter that Iíve ever had.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Have had a bottle or two before, but never rated. Gravity cask at Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon. Dark brown, still, small white head. Aroma is very pungent honey. Body is medium to light, low carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is very sweet, lots of the advertised honey, warming and rounded flavour...but this is way too sweet for my taste and I found it hard going.
