Jerusalem Tavern in London...

A: Dark red with a thin off white head

S: Some maltiness but mostly dark fruits which are overpowering

T: Again, much like the aroma, the daark fruits are overpowering... slightly syruppy

M: Kind of thin

O: Not impressive... but was worth a shot

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A - Pours a dark red/light brown colour with a centimetre of beige head that falls to a thin whisp quite quickly. Quite big rings of lacing.
S - Dark fruits with a fairly strong cherry presence. A touch of roasted malts.
T - The taste reminds me of a cough syrup I used to have when I was younger - strong, sticky & artficially sweet cherry. Once the sticky, sweetness goes away there is some roasty notes and quite a strong bitterness felt.
M - Quite light bodied for the style, medium carbonation.
D - No idea what honey they used but I struggled to find it. Honey Porters continue to let me down.
The best before date on this bottle was April 08.

Dark red color, with ruby reflexes. Some foam, beige in color, not lasting, ma lefting a veil.
At the firts sniff: honey, with sometimes some chocolat. The two notes are not well amalgamated, you can feel one at the time.
Quite difficult to drink, the honey cover the taste, that it's peculiar. There is some bitterness and some roasted, but the honey is too strong and overbearing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Poured very dark and thick from the bottle. The green bottles are cool, but can be misleading about the beer's actual color. Little to no head on it when poured.

S: Strong aromas. Hints of coffee or even chocolate, although the honey came right through.

T: Strong, bitter flavor. Almost overwhelming. Bitter from beginning to finish, although the honey flavors helped sweeten it.

M: Rich. Medium creaminess. Barely any carbonation.

D: Tough to drink quickly because of the bitterness. Perhaps some carbonation would lighten the heaviness caused by the bitter flavors.

St Peter's Honey Porter.

A = Poured dark brown with little head. What was there dissapated quickly to nothing.

S = Smelt of rich dark honey. Also an underlying coffee bitterness to the smell. Smells great.

T = The taste was initially a smooth honey taste which was penetrated by a dark chocolate taste and a smokey bitter finish. The smokey finish left a bad aftertaste which effected the next sip, and so forth. Yuck.

M = Low carbonation mixed with smokey muck.

D = The smokey characteristic of this beer made it undrinkable for me.

AMERICAN? Porter?

From the bottle:
A traditional English porter finished with honey for a truly unique aroma. This is a famous old ale which has been handed down through generations. Brewed with skill and patience in Britain's finest small brewery.

4.5% ABV, Best Before 19APR06.

A: Dark ruby-brown, off-white/slightly-tan head (not much, but it leaves some wicked looking lace).

S: REALLY smells like honey (how do they do it?). Some fruityness from the British yeast, with a little roasted/nutty malt. Exceptional.

T: Bittersweet flavour. Dark fruit-bread, a little licorous & espresso. A bit of a let down.

M: Light to moderate body and carbonation. Slightly puckering & dry in the finish.

D: Alright.

500ml Bottle bought from the Vineyard, Belfast..

Poured a dark brown / black colour... Slightly off white head poured quite big but disappeared very quickly...

Aroma - Very noticable sweet honey, coffee, malts, spicy, peppery...

Taste – Aniseed, honey, chocolate, roasted malts...

Feel - Quite creamy, not as full bodied as i would have expected...

Overall - A pretty good honey porter. Not something i would want to drink a lot, but definitely worth a try...

Nice ruby-black colour with thin head. Smell is odd: typical porter, with hints of honey and a malty flatness.

Taste is quite similar, with more emphasis on the honey with a trace of hops. A little thin and really not enough carbonation but still a good pint!

This beer looks and tastes like a classic English Porter with one
addition; honey. I tasted this brew with a creme brulee which picked up the subtle sweetness from the honey. The backbone was
dark roasted malts and coffee flavours but the overall effect was
a easy drinking porter that was very dessert friendly. Nothing mindblowing but a nice beer in all aspects.

Comes in St. Peter's trademark oval-shaped brown half-liter bottle with the very plain label. Honey is listed as an ingredient - duh! Best before Valentine's Day 2004, I couldn't wait that long. Mine popped open on 10/25/03.

Poured a dark brown hue with burgundy hints, rather like a cola. I was disturbed by the extreme lack of head. Despite dumping the last third of the bottle vertically into my glass, this brew could only just barely muster enough foam to cover the top of the glass. I must admit, though, that head retention was not bad, in the sense that the same film that formed at the pour was still around near the bottom of the glass. And there were spots of lace. Go figure.

The smell was very nice - strong caramel and sweet. The mouth was fairly flat and heavy. The taste was that of a strong porter, bordering on a stout. Roasted nuts and bitter chocolate featured in the opening, chased by a big hoppy bitterness in the finish. Can't say that I noticed much influence from the honey here. There was a bit of smokiness to the experience, and the taste was uncannily like a stout. Still, it was quite enjoyable, despite it's rather odd appearance.
