Smells like old lady perfume, taste like perfume. If you hold the beer for a while in the mouth is like literally tasting soap. Some hints of burnt honey. No good. daniele (9063) - ITALY - MAY 5, 2009
scura buona schiuma media peristenza note nette di miele floreale un poc chimico medicinale in bocca ritorna il miel un po di medicinale quasi speziata molto particolare ma un po stucchevole forse ogivlado (7810) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottled(500ml). -Reddish/brown coloured, small pale brown head, strong and quite unpleasant honey nose. Roasted malt, light chocolate and coffee and a way too pronounced honey taste. Also some notes of wax. Interesting and truly unique taste but not so enjoyable nor pleasant. MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2009
Bottle (500ml). Poured cola coloured with a small frothy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of leatherwood honey with strong notes of vanilla pods, molasses, bark and some odd notes of toasted marshmallows. Flavor was of sarsaparilla with chocolate, vanilla, toasted malts, roasted nuts, touch of liquorice, an odd herbal/spice note (star aniseed & ginger maybe?) and a superbly dry finish. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation, a creamy mouthfeel, watery texture and a great dry finish. Muggus69 (2491) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 9, 2009

Served lightly chilled in glass.
Deep dark burnt amber body, red highlights in the corners of my glass. Small ring of white lace.
Wow! The smell is amazing! It says honey, but i get more of a burnt vanilla character. Caramalised sugar and subtle pot pouri perfume leading to a hint of honey. Beer base is somewhat hidden, but I don’t mind.
Low carbonation, medium-to-low weight, oily texture, roasted grain astrigency is apparent, with a lactic acidity about it drying throughout.
Flavour on the body is not as smooth as the nose alludes too. Solid malt body guided by mild roasted malts. Burnt honey, vanilla, cocoa and pot pouri come through towards the finish, ending with a big drying bitterness.
Such a unique beer, from the nose you could hardly guess that it was a bitter, dry porter underneath. Probably benefit being a bit bigger and sweet. Would also love to know what kind of honey they use!?

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 Pooh’s deranged redneck cousin. Some liquorice underneath, maybe some caramel, too traumatized to remember. Much like Al Pacino’s career now, just when you think it couldn’t 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, doesn’t even get you shitfaced since I can’t imagine how chugging this would feel even in my wildest nightmares. McWorta (1627) - 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 Peter’s.

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 (12730) - Tromsø, 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].
