yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 Bottled. Deep copper-colored beer with an aroma of only honey, then heather, sweetness and forgetmenot. Honey and some coffee-roasted notes in the flavor. Thin body and not my cup of tea. There is way too much honey in it. Rating: 5-3-5-2-10-2.5. (061124)

Bottle, courtesy of tarjei. It pours a quite pretty amber to brown body, topped by a decent, beige head. The aroma has a slight whiff of smoke up front, but is soon overpowered by honey and heather, which completely dominates the aroma. The sweet flavor has almost only honey and heather, and even though its sort of well-tasting, it gets too much. Theres some notes of coffee and chocolate in the finish. Medium body. Way to honeyish, but still theres some qualities. A bottle you share. (081108)

Fin (9784) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2006
Bottle, Majestic, Bicester, 23-12-06 in a St Peters mixed pack of four different dark beers.Pours a reddy brown colour with the most incredible honey aroma, far more honey than in any other honey style beer that Ive ever encountered if there are any faults in this Dept I suppose it is that the aroma is just a tad overpowering, but I liked it. flavour once again is a full frontal honey assault, or is that that nose still tricking the tastebuds? Regardless I rather liked this beer despite the one dimensional aspect.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 23, 2006
Bottle at Jerusalem Tavern in Farringdon (London), darkish with ruby tints, no head. A strong woody honey aroma. Bitter honey and clover flavours that cling to the mouth.

harrisoni (17457) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2006
500ml bottle at Jerusalem Tavern, London. Ruby/black with bubbly tan head. Very honeyed aroma. Lots of honey flavour. Wow, reminds me with the honey of sweet meads like Lurgashall, but not with the sweetness. Not much in way of a porter, bit of charcoal, bit of choc maybe, but the honey dominates throughout. Nice, if you like honey. Bit unbalanced, but interesting.

DruncanVeasey (8056) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
Waxy, medicinal, honey and lemon Lockets nose. At last a honey beer that tastes honeyish. But far too much of a good thing. Some creaminess and bitter roast way back in the mix. But sticky, waxy, cough sweet, block-of-beeswax honey overwhelmes and ruins this beer.

Stefano (1979) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2006
Very dark, blood-red color, with a very small head. Lots of honey in the aroma. Very sweet and somewhat candied. Flavor is bitter, artificial honey and candy notes. Very odd, like medicine.

StueyD (1577) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2006
A dark reddish brown coloured beer with a thickish beige head. The nose is strong honey sweet, toffee and slightly alcoholic. The taste is again sweet, honey, caramel and toffee fudge, with a hint of vanilla spice, and just a hint of malt. The finish is sweet and smooth. I didnt think it was as bad as the other rates suggest! (Bottle - purchased from the brewerys stall @ the 2005 Sandringham Christmas Food Fair).

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2006 (Bottle at Haket, Gteborg) Pours dark red/brown with allmost no head. Smells honey! Some notes of chocolate. Sugar. Very unbalanced. Taste: honey! Flowers. Not so complex.

[bottled in Hacket] Lots of honey, slightly heathery note. medium body, very sweet honeyish finish. A deeply unpleasant experience.
