COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the Honey Badger. Watch it pour in slow motion. It’s pretty badass… Tight black body with a small brown head. Oh the bubbles fall to the bottom of the glass? Honey Badger really doesn’t give a shit. Brewed with and insane amounts of honey this beer is a bold as they get. The Honey Badger has no regard for any other beer whatsoever – What you like fizzy yellow lager, and big black beers make you want to cry? - that’s nasty… Honey Badger don’t care – it’s gonna smack you up. Honey Badger doesn’t give a shit. Changed from 16 to 17.5 % when moved to own brewery in 2013

Fredd_an (245) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - APR 30, 2015
Kolsvart med lätt krona som snabbt försvinner. Kryddig, alkohol stark & söt honungsdoft. Värmande alkohol som tar över lite för mycket. Mycket sötma, mycket stark, mycket honuuung!! Inte så väl balanserad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackafholmes (994) - - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from brewdog bar, Sheffield. Pours like black silk out of the bottle, no head. Aroma is honey surprisingly, but also syrupy alcohol hiding behind the sweetness. Taste is rich sweetness, strong alcohol warmth afterwards. Oily and thick, slightly over carbonated for me. Couldn’t drink 2, but lovely beer for a one off (quite pricy).

So sweet it´s like they just added honey untill it started filling up on the bottom. One of the worst beers I´ve ever had.

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2014
33cl bottle from a friend, batch from 2013. Fizzy foamhead that vanishes swiftly. Aroma is not over-sweet - what one would expect of honey impys- and complex : well hidden alcohol, wood, old bread, honey (mild), licorice, slight hint of vanilla and smoke. Very mild and full body taste where the alcohol (17.5) gently emerges and lingers on long after the sip. Alcohol rush in the finish : mmm. This beer offers a full tasting experience where the honey isn’t dominant nor overrules it’s other taste elements. The sweetness is beautifully balanced by the roasted malts. To be honest, this is by far the best honey stout I tasted. Very promising for aging it a couple of years! If you can wait all that long ;-) Unfortunately this is one of the last beers the brewer is producing, but he surely made his point! Looking forward to the Coffee & Cognac badgers.
