Caramel, crystal, munich and chocolate malts form a rich foundation for this dark and complex ale. Brewed with an absurd amount of honey from Pennsylvania bees, this braggot has a profound honey character and a nice warming finish. It is the perfect beer to celebrate our sweet sixteen.

mcberko (14351) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma is fairly oxidized, with bready malt, fermented out honey, and light toast. Flavour brings out medium honey, bready malt and toasted notes. Light sweetness on the finish. Not overly complex but it works. Pretty good for five years old.

tom10101 (5271) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle (12 oz). From John, thanks!

Appearance: Deep amber-brown with a small bubbly beige head and no lacing.

Aroma: Honey, chocolate, caramel, light spiciness and a touch of dark fruits.

Taste: Very sweet, cloying. There’s honey sweetness, but also sugary notes. Chocolate, caramel, alcohol/boozy presence, dark fruits and light spiciness.

Palate: Medium body. Almost no carbonation. A bit oily. Chocolate-y and boozy finish.

Overall: Unbalanced. Too sweet. A bit burning. Despite a good amount of flavor, this one finds the way to be boring. Very hard to drink, even for a sipper.

Transfer from BA review on 7-24-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Pours a deep ruby color with a small thin tan head. The head fades very rapidly leaving a light amount of lacing. Smell – The smell is sweet and boozy. Aromas of dark fruits are mixed with brown sugar and honey as well as a spicy aroma. The sweet aromas are accompanied by a big boozy smell that creates a warming tingle in the nose. Taste – The taste begins strong and sweeter. Honey mixed with a nice bready malt flavor meet the tongue. Spice flavors and herbs start to then work their way into the flavor profile along with a good hint of alcohol booziness. As the taste goes on the booziness intensifies and begins drowning out the honey and herb. Toward the end, when the alcohol taste is strong, it is met with some darker fruit flavors of raisin and prune and a roasted malt flavor, which when mixed with the spice leave arum soaked raisin flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick with a carbonation level is slightly below average. For the sweet and boozy flavors the thick body accentuates the sweet and warming feel with the carbonation level being just right to complement the body. Overall – A good brew overall. While it may be a little too strong on the alcohol flavors it is well worth a try if you get a chance.

(bottle - 12 oz) Deep copper pour with a tan head. Medicinal and harsh aroma. Lots of alcohol and overly ripe dark fruits. Flavor is medicinal as well. Lots of sweetness with a super sweet finish. Maybe it’s the style or maybe it turned.
