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

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black. Some sweet hints of honey. Roasted, some hints of chocolate and some taste of red wine. I can’t get a solid grip of this, having trouble to define its position in regards of taste and appearance, although it being a great beer. Could imagine drinking this instead of a wine to a good meal.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle, pours black with a medium brown head. Aroma is full of tobacco, wood and burnt roasted malt - don’t get any honey on the nose. Flavour brings out loads of highly roasted malt, some raisins, then the honey kicks in full out, ending on notes of burnt roasted malt. Quite full-bodied with the honey adding an usual element that takes a while to get used to, but is very complementary. Great stuff.

Hand bottle from PBF, thanks veliempojot
Pours pitch black with a tiny head. Aroma of bready and roasty malts, root beer, some licorice and honey. Taste is sweetish, spicy, roasty and bready with notes of root beer, licorice and honey. Finish is sticky, spicy and roasty with some root beer notes. A bit untypical and strange.

50 cl bottle @ wPBF’13, BBE 11.12.2017
Aroma has root beer, some roasted notes and honey. Flavour has root beer, honey, some roasted notes and herbs. Quite good for a honey beer. I wonder how Thornbridge gets this root beer aroma in their beers?
