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

Beerconnaiseur (92) - 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.

mR_fr0g (3130) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
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.

@ Ölprovning på Havregatan. Flaska (330ml) från Systembolaget (91:-). Lite spritig i både doften och smaken, väldigt hög sötma, honung, sött kaffe, choklad, medelfyllig och oljig i konsistensen. Alldeles för söt.

Douberd (2290) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2014
Bottle 330 ml, waxed, sent from PMgem, thanks Stefan! Into a Borefts taster. ABV 17.5% Pours a totally black beer, absorbing all light. Small dark brown head, thick enough, with good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass and a thin line of foam around it. Aroma of roasted malts, vanilla, alcohol, sweet, lots of chocolate, a bit of mocha too. Great taste, sweet with lots of honey, roasted malts to balance it, a very intense warming feeling from the alcohol but other than that very well hidden alcohol, liquorice, mocha, chocolate, perfume, very light bitterness on the aftertaste. Full thick body with low carbonation, sticky palate. Overall a fantastic imperial stout, really liked it

Habanero (2617) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a creamy and tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee notes. Sweet flavor that ends up slightly more dry and with an alcohol bite. Medium to full bodied, syrupy texture and flat carb. A tasty impy.

Theydon_Bois (8668) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2014
Bottle at Bruce’s keller, thanks to Kenny, minister for the interior of Danish beer bottles, 08/04/14. Murky light black with moderate faded tan spottage effect that thins further. Nose is sweet, boozey overcoat and trilby, nail polish, honeycomb, sugars, dark malts, bit of a one trick pony. Taste comprises sweet tones, honey, sugars, spice, boozey twang, light cocoa. Full bodid, fine carbonation, sweet boozey close. Ok - little hot and sweet, choclified mead, I couldn’t drink a lot of this.
