COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at the Brick Store Sweet Sixteen Party. Dark pour, with next to no head. The aroma is sour cherries, molasses, black bread, and strong honeysuckle. The flavor is very sweet, with a little sour note in the finish. The body is medium, silky, and very acidic. Overall, this is a strange, sour, but tasty beer.

Bottle, thanks to Jstax. Dark chestnut in color with a thin ring of creamy beige head. Nose is unassuming, malty, and sweet. Light honey is evident. Good balance of malt to sweet, light roast, and honey. Lingering sticky finish. Not a style (braggot) that I’m very familiar with, so it’s hard to tell, but good for what it is, I think.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The look is clear, thin tan head, and brown in color. The smell is caramel, sweet, fruits, and honey. The taste is sweet, alcohol, honey, and eh.

Thanks Clint. Dark brown with a solid sheet of peanut foam. Smells like honey (as the label says), and profoundly so; there are some nougat and raisin notes in the nose as well. There are some nice things going on with the malt here, some graham (again, in the nose). Tastes sweet and...makes my face twitch. Whew, way too sweet with nasty acetone and alcohol flavors. The raisins in the nose come thru here with a fury, and with brown sugar and granola. I really don’t dig this profile. Thin with heavy carb. Semi dry finish. This beer is substantially more disappointing than I had expected. I really am hit and miss with Weyerbacher, but this is not appropriate for my mouth. Serving type: bottle 12-31-2011

12 oz. bottle. Pours deep dark brown almost black with a sudsy frothy khaki head that dissipates to a thin soapy film and lingering lacing. Aroma is rich roasted malt some licorice coming through and underlying coffee/cocoa scents. Not really any noticeable honey scents. Taste has more anise/licorice flavors with honey roasted malt slight smokiness and hidden coffee peanut brittle some chocolate/toffee. Palate is full slightly sticky good carbonation and a warming dry finish. As this warms the honey really shows well along with some spice and alcohol. Pretty tasty!

Not sure I realized this was mead until I went to rate this. I assumed it was American Strong Ale. Pours deep dark brown with a light tan head. Scent is molasses and booze. Medium heavy body with more carbonation than I expected. Flavors starts out sweet and stays sweet. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA
