3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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).

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with the team at work. Release beer. Really think oily black / dark caramel pour with a thin fleeting tan head. Aroma is booze / ethanol first off then unrefined / burnt sugars, honey and earthy notes. Palate is sweet and sticky, but really nice and full and slightly creamy. Warming alcohol on the tongue after you swallow. Flavour is sweet / cakey, with smooth caramel malts. Alcohol bite in the finish. some appley fruits and weird earthy woody flavour are slightly off putting.
