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.

mecafilo (159) - Perugia, ITALY - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark reddish-brownish colour, small off-white head. Aroma is what you would expect from mixing honey with a porter: some notes of coffee and chocolatr, bu a distinct note of honey as well; not very elegant, and somehow not so inviting. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter; frankly, I’ve drunk lots of better beers than this one. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, unpleasant bitter finish. I love porters and I love honey, but for God’s sake - don’t mix them, trust me.

impuritylaw (24) - Freibierg, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2015
The aroma is all about honey, sweet and herbal. Taste is also dominated by honey and a more herbal note with a medium body. Over all the beer is much to sweet, watery and a bit to artificial in flavour. Like a package of dissolved honey herb bonbons from the pharmacy.

hohops (607) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Appearance is dark, caramel brown, with a large rocky light brown head. Aroma- lots and lots of honey. Chocolatey malt hints, caramel, chocolate biscuit, slight nuttiness, but all about the honey. Taste- honey sweetness dominates. Toffee, caramel, glazed fruitcake, dark chocolate malts, slick and smooth mouthfeel. The honey dominates this one.

Bawelt (188) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 21, 2015
Nez : assez choquant, a priori pas convaincant. Le miel se sent mais un miel fort de seconde main... Forte odeur de chocolat au lait tres alléchante en revanche. La bouche est très déséquilibrée : le chocolat lait se retrouve avec un cacao amer ce qui rend la chose écoeurante... Le miel se sent très en arrière et loin d’adoucir, cela ajoute à l’amertume. Fin un peu chocolat. Globalement ratée même si il y avait de l’idée.

fid600 (75) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 20, 2015
50 cl bottle from City Center One, served in a snifter. Dark brown with ruby red hue, no head. Aroma is honey, caramel, very slight grassy. Aroma of honey seems quite agressive, artificial, almost chemical. Medium body, very soft carbonization. Taste is low on sweetness, with medium bitterness, texture is oily.

Milter (518) - Nyborg, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2015 Kraftig honningsmag, specielt eftersmag. Meget let porter. Ikke en øl man bliver afhængig af.

FireGlider (292) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 23, 2015
Red and brownish color without head. Strong honey aroma with strong herbal notes and not soo strong aftertaste. Medium sweet taste. Big and oily body. It feels like drinking cough syrup.

einherjar (219) - Rijeka, CROATIA - AUG 12, 2015
0,5l bottle. Brown color, very small beige head. Very strong aroma of honey. Taste itter with honey, light to medium body, more honey in aftertaste. Too much honey for me.
