3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Didn’t expect to like this but I did. A simple London porter with a dallop of honey in the finish after a five second wait. Aroma is honey and very grainy (pixellated) porter. This is not a robust porter, it’s a simple, soft London porter with honey, and for what it advertises it does well. Honey beers get too much hate, they really do work occasionally. If this were on draft here I’d order it from time to time.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 0,50L. Dark brown color, much deep and impenetrable with a nice and elegant resistant head duration. Sweet and candy aroma, decided notes of honey and cake, not bitter or roasty nose perception. Sweet taste at strat with a modest bitter and alcoholic final. Notes of roast caramel, dark honey, little woody and long sweetish final. Interesting and unusual porter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dobry i ciekawy porter. Intrygujący smak. Miód wyczuwalny w zapachu, kwiatowe aromaty także w tle. W smaku Porterowo gożki. Finisz trochę rozgrzewający i gozki. W chwilę po przełknięciu wyczuwa się już tylko miód. Ale jakby ten gryczany, bez natrętnej słodkości. Ciekawa interpretacja Portera

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
50 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20090426.
Pours copper color with a small head. Aroma is almost repulsive with the honey essence, some mild fruits and malts also. Flavor is as bad as the aroma, very sweet honey essence, sweet fruits and malts. Probably the one beer that got me hating honey brews.

500 ml bottle. The bottle is a replica of an original bottle from the early 1800s. Pours clear very dark brown, almost black, with a tiny head. Sweet honey aroma. Roasty malt taste with strong honey notes. Slightly bitter honey palate.

No head at all. Clear dark red-brown colour. Pleasant, intense, but not too sweet vanilla-honey aroma. Wonderful honey taste. The vanilla aroma reappears in the astounding palate, this time lightly roasty. The perfect example of a scented beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Baran, Bergen. Seems clear with a black colour, and has a small light beige head. There’s a lot of honey in the aroma along with roasted almonds and some lactose. A really one of a kind aroma, and feels almost medicinal. More roast and honey in the flavour, and some camphor. The mouthfeel is slick, and has a light bitterness. A strange beer, and is a bit indeterminate.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark ruby with unstable off-white head. Excessively sweet, multiflower honey aroma. Fortunately, it tastes more of good, smoked, bitter porter rather than the aggressive honey. Very much unbalenced, but not a displeasure at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Jerusalem Tavern. Amber brown pour with nearly zero carbonation. Body is thinnish, nose a bit indistinct. Modest and unassuming flavors for the most part, with mild chocolate, some molasses that’s well complemented by the gentle honey, and the faintest roast. Not especially complex, and the honey could be amplified to give the beer more personality.
