MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2009
Here I was thinking that St peters could make a decent beer after trying their wintertime seasonal beer and the decent cream stout but I find myself being seriously bitch slapped back to reality with this one. Floral honey scent hits you like a two by four at first, making you feel like you are about to be molested by Winnie the Poohs deranged redneck cousin. Some liquorice underneath, maybe some caramel, too traumatized to remember. Much like Al Pacinos career now, just when you think it couldnt get any worse, it does, the taste hits you. Cheap perfume mixed with cough syrup? Num num! I finished the bottle like a good boy but I would have been fine with just a spoonful of this concoction. On top of this all, doesnt even get you shitfaced since I cant imagine how chugging this would feel even in my wildest nightmares.

McWorta (1560) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 22, 2009
Caramel malts like sirup, smells of honey and vanilla hints. Traces of chocolate. Rubin-red with a small head. Light sweet , medium bitter, slick texture, medium body with a lousy finish - it is just missing something. Smells great but other than that just a good porter but nothing outstanding

beeR (61) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2009
50 cl bottle. Dark ruby and clear. Short light brown head. Strong and overwhelming homey and beeswax aroma. Too strong and remembering a bweeswax made soap. Still honey and sweet in the mouth but with a bitter component. medium-light body, good carbonation. Just a hint of porter malts. The firs delusion by St Peters.

SHIG (4930) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Bottle: Poured a dark brown with no head. Aroma is like that old honey bear honey, you know the one you squeeze the bear and honey pours out. Taste is heavy honey and bitter, also some leafy spice.

Rune (11642) - Troms, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2008
500ml bottle, 4.5% ABV, from Centra Colosseum. Light brown, bubbly head. Deep, dark brown with shining clarity. Prominent and inviting smell of dark honey. Honey sweetness in the taste, with roasted malts behind. Short tail. Perfumed impression and rather one-dimensional in flavour [hotel room in Oslo, 16.12.2008].

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2008
50 cl bottle at my 40 y party, shared with yngwie. Bougth at Vaaland, Bryne. Dark brown color, moderate off-white head. There is a lot of honey in the aroma. Flavor is honey, very sweet, coffee, Kongen av Danmark. Strange and interesting, but not extremely good beer.

MoritzF (9564) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2008
[bottle] Dark ruby colour with a beige and short foamy head. Sweet, slightly malty nose with a distinctive note of honey, that covers almost everything else but a flowery touch in the background. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation. Light roasty malt character with notes of honey and something that reminds me of bubblegum. Sweet and moderately malty finish with flowery as well as spicy notes, plus a touch of coffee/mocha in the aftertaste. Not a must [13.XII.08].

Sigmund (6952) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2008
500 ml bottle, bought at Vaaland Spesialbutikken, Bryne. ABV is 4.5%. Very dark reddish brown colour, moderate creamy beige head. VERY strong aroma of honey, also notes of caramel and syrup. Creamy mouthfeel. The honey dominates the flavour too, but it is not quite as sweet as I feared. Notes of coffee and cough syrup, with a moderate hoppy bitterness in the finish. St. Peter’s Brewery has better beers than this one!

darkseduction (726) - Zweibrcken, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2008
Bottle 50cl. Pours dark brown clear brew. Strong wild honey smell, dark roasted malts. Nice composition and balanced impression. A liitle bit sharp in the finish. Good and interesting, beautiful bottle.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2008
500 ml bottle. Dark brown colour with a ruby red hue. Small white head. Strong sweet honey aroma. Some notes of raisins and roasted malt also. Flavourful honey. Minty flavours with a sharp hop bitterness. This is much unlike any other honey beer I’ve tried. This one definitely tastes of honey and a lot of it too. Lots of mint there as well, but less so in the aroma. Perfumey. Floral. A very interesting and special beer indeed, but not really something I would want to drink much of. Finishing this half liter bottle is going to be a little challenging.
