4.5% ABV on the front label.
Poured into pint.
Pours clear dark brown with 1-finger beige head, reduction to some foam on a surface.
Smell - honey, milk chocolate, oomph... honey, vanilla.
Taste - honey, roasted malts, floral notes (don't know which exactly, but truly excellent).
Light body and soft carbonation.
To some extent weird, but still superb special porter (floral interpretation).

Good presentation so the expectation was high. It was once the bottle was opened that our expectations went downhill. The reason for joining this site was to warn you all how bloody awful this stuff tasted. Oh i have just been told it was supposed to be a beer. I am off to check the dictionary to see the definition of a beer. This was truly dreadful. 2 bottles was purchased. We thought that perhaps the 1st was off. No such luck!! 2nd bottle was exactly the same so if you want consistency this is for you. After our expectations went downhill, both bottles were sent down the drain. Never known a beer to have an aroma of cats wee before.

This is a nice porter with honey notes. Not bad at all, not great either. Pours deep brown almost black, honey is not present in aroma, and it´s very mild and subtle in taste.

- pure honeycomb smells
- honey, clover flowers, and a slight bitterness in the finish

Poured cold from 500ml bottle into straight pint glass.

A) Pours very dark ruby-black. No head and little lacing.

S) Despite serving cold, the honey smell is huge. Also hints of good vanilla ice cream. Very appetising.

M) Moderate to low carbonation. I drink stouts and porters cold, so it's quite refreshing.

T) First is strong taste of nice honey. Then a bit of floral gums (English sweets). Finally there's some beer! Fairly good chocolate stout type flavour. Only let down is a fairly distinct and long-lasting metallic / astringent aftertaste.

O) Far better than I was expecting after reading some of the reviews on BA. The first beer from this brewery that I have liked. Really looking forward to their Cream Stout now. Recommended to any flavoured stout fan.

4.5 ABV, Best before date 30 April 15
Deep mahogany brown, very lightly carbonated with thin tan head and minimal lacing.
Strong aroma of clover honey, sweet and floral
Taste of burnt toast and clover honey slightly medicinal surprisingly not sweet. The body is thin and dry.
This porter is not for me, I can see where they are trying to go, but for me the thin dry body and burnt flavor of roast barley is at odds with the heavy floral clover-honey aroma. It unbalances this beer and makes it hard to enjoy.
