ERB92 (250) - 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 (2531) - 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 (1625) - 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...

Vighals (1083) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2013
Rødbrun i fargen med beige skum. Skikkelig honninglukt. Smaker honning også, ikke for søtt. Lite kullsyre

Cantabrian (805) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 This has very little of any resemblance with a Porter. If not for the low alcohol volume, I’d make it more of a Baltic Porter, those that look like watery Pepsi, the very sweet ones, sweet, but not cloying. This is pure honey, the strong type, Waldbeeren Honig, in shape of a beer. I get little else but honey, on the nose and flavour, not much of roasted malts, but perhaps just a little of vanilla. This was better and a bit more robust than the Fuller’s Honey Ale. I love it.
