bottle @ Belmont Party Supply --- Aroma of malt and honey. Opaque brown-black color, deep tan head that drops to a full cover, sheets of lace. Taste is toasted malt with honey, medium fizz and bitter chocolate in a long finish. Hardly big enough for 7% abv, but easy enough to enjoy.

12 ounce bottle. Thin beige head. Chocolate and molasses flavor with bourbon undertones. Smooth with little carbonation. Enjoyable beverage for the cooler weather witch its getting to be around here!

Ahuth (495) - Illinois, USA - OCT 11, 2016
Bottled. Pours black. The palate is sticky and light. The taste is big malty taste. Light coco and sweet honey. If more bold flavor this beer would be excellent. But lacking on flavor

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee with a slight hint of alcohol. Flavor is heavy and chewy up front with the roasted malts and coffee. Finish is slightly sweeter with the chocolate. Slight alcohol warming on the finish.

Pours a very dark brown to black with a thin tan ring. Nice aroma of sweet roasted malts and a hint of dark chocolate. Light carbonation with some lacing. Thin to medium body. Taste is roasted malts and semi sweet dark chocolate. Fairly smooth finish with some lingering flavors. Not as good as I expected but not bad.

A bittersweet, big, bold, black stout beer. Lots of chocolate and dark malt flavors. Thick succulent mouthfeel. Label says, honey, and while the sweetness is very mellow like honey, I could not detect any honey myself. The cocoa nibs are right there in the front though. Some earthy spices show in the otherwise chocolaty finish.

HourGlass13 (785) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Pours up a dark brown, nearly black with a nice brown head. Aroma is nearly all chocolate. Taste is chocolate with an earthy, bready malt, a touch of dark fruit, and some black molasses. There is a light spicy note on the finish, but nothing you can put a finger on. Full bodied. Smooth, sweet, silky. Good stuff.

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2016
12 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina. Appearance: Slips out a black body crowned with two inches of tan-hued suds. Smell: A leading sniff of soy sauce, as well as roasted malts, clearance chocolate, burnt sugars and spiced honey candy. Taste: Its sweet, moderately so. Hinting of honey sweet, even. Sweetness is blunted by roastiness with some low-grade chocolate. Very mild spice element for a little, low pepper note. A bit of umami. Sweetish, honey-roast finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel. Overall: At best its so-so.

Bittersweet but mostly pretty bitter - not hop bitter but the taste of dark chocolate. Unable to find much other honey flavors. Cocoa finish is best part.
