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.

Wow wow wow. Just wow. I wasn’t expecting to like this one. It has an intense honey aroma, hiding behind a very dark, malty brew. Very sweet, but much less sweet than the aroma suggests. One of the few beers that is this sweet that I actually enjoyed. Honestly, not very beer-like, but quite delightful. Aroma is mostly floral and fruity, dominated by the honey tones, but with a background of dark malt. Noticeably alcoholic but exceptionally smooth for its high alcohol content. Very well-executed. Expect something very different though if you try this one.

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.

jake65 (2725) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2014
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.
