Bottle bought at Schiphol. Dark brown body with slight head. Nose of honey, toffee and roasted malt. Sweet tasting, with honey and caramel evident A bit waxy and soapy. Interesting beer but a one-off..

sound67 (784) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2009 50cl oval green bottle. Dark brown color, almost as dark as "Schwarzbier". Very small light brown head. Aroma of honey, caramel and malt. Tastes at first like burnt malt with honey, then, like perfumed soap. Sweet, however, it is not - this is a true "bitter", with honey thrown in for good, or bad, measure. "Truly unique" it says on the back label, and it certainly is. If you want to try it, do it like me, keep it cold! Otherwise, it might be a tad too unique. ;=) It gets better as you keep drinking and the initial shock has worn off (Well, it DOES say "Honey Porter", doesn’t it?). For VERY special occasions, and, I guess, mostly designed to suit old people.

Bottle. Thanks to Barry. Poussin pale, clear cola brown, no head, very gentle carb. Nose is... Unusual. Straight up lavender, tootsie roll, caramilk bar. No hops, no malt, no booze, just fruit and candy. Palate is piercingly floral, like the lavender candies my granother tried so desperately to get me to like. Some candy, watery palate. This could have been genius, but instead it sucks.

mcdav2154 (448) - GERMANY - JUL 21, 2009
Pours dark brown and reddish with a small light brown head. Smell is slightly unpleasant for a beer. Kind of smells like a burnt tea bag with a honey accent. Taste is too much burnt tea, some honey, and malt. Not a huge fan of this one.

I think I could drink a LOT of this stuff! It poured a dark dark dark amber, almost brown, colour along with a modest, foamy tan head which produced some very nice lacing. Aroma-wise, the delightful scent of honey hits you right away. As for the taste, again with the honey and it really makes this a pleasure to drink. Some coffee appears in the after taste as an added bonus. Finally, it comes in the pretty St Peter’s unique bottle.

garza (574) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - JUN 21, 2009
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 (9888) - 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

2.4
ogivlado (8316) - 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.

3.3
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.
