3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
You really can smell the honey, even with a below-average nose like mine. On first taste, it comes across as a beer that has high gravity for the sake of high gravity, but once you let it slide down your throat, you get that nice, warm feeling that makes you feel relaxed and easy-going.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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 itís the style or maybe it turned.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 Iím very familiar with, so itís 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.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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 donít 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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!
