3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A black beer with a very big and beautiful coloured, brown head. At first, a nose is strongly honey, sweet, roastiness, liquirice and some fruits. After the first mouthfull, the honey is not so dominating anymore, and the aroma is more balanced. The taste is powerfull and strongly roasted, lots of salt liquirice, honey. Also tar and smoke with herbal hops in the end. Full bodied that is lighten with a strong, but smooth carbonation. The unique IS with a lots of honey.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a very thick pitch black whit lovely dark tan head. Looks insane. Nose is smoky oak, sweetness from the heather honey, a little bit of coffee and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is incredibly full, such a rich beer. Taste is upfront with espresso like coffee, powdered chocolate, heather honey and maybe some dark fruit. What a great beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 50 cl, BBE 11.12.2017. Pours black in color with a thick creamy tan head. First there’s some old leather, bit of stable, hmm, guessing that’s the heather honey, but then some burnt and roasted notes with some dark chocolate appears in aroma. Raisins and dark chocolate in taste. Oily texture. There’s also some additional sweeter notes, but they they get overpowered with the bitterness from the chocolatey notes. Quite smooth overall and yet another good one from Thornbridge.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a dirty tan head leaving superb lacing. Looks mighty fine. Nose shows sweet and thick honey, leather, molasses, chocolate. Taste is meaty stuff. Sweetness from the honey never takes over. Heavy dark fruits and chocolate, with a focus on raisins. Quite tarty from some berries with some sticky sweet honey. Drinks superbly for 10%. Great beer
