Weyerbacher broke this one out at their tasting center in honor of beer week. Very good; dark and rich. The honey taste is subtle.

12 oz bottle poured into a stange. Bottles 4-11-11

A - Pours a deep mahogany with a 2 finger tan head. Retention is wonderful. It dwindles down to a 1/4 finger then just stays right there. Sticky lacing. Looks wonderful!

S - Roasted malts, chocolate, hint of vanilla, dried fruit/raisins, honey. Lots going on there but its a moderate nose in strength, not overpowering at all.

T - Oh wow! This is incredible. Starts off with the dried fruit characteristics, then moves into the candy/chocolate, roasty-warm malts, slight warming alcohol. Then after the finish a twinge of what I would call a honey licorice suddenly appears. Just a wonderful mix of fun and flavors that somehow all comes together.

M - Full-bodied, rich, somewhat creamy. Very smooth. The booze is well hidden but present nonetheless. Very drinkable but its to be savored. The finish is what really blows me away. Its dry and so unique.

O - Really dug this effort from a brewery I've had nothing but good luck with. I don't know this style well I must admit but boy what a fun little beer this one is. Going to stock up tomorrow!

Now this is an awesome beer/mead combo!!

A-Deep dark black with little lacing and not much of a head due to the abv of this one.

S-Wow!! it is like smelling a mead with some molassas and chocolate malt smells. I can just smell this one without drinking it and would be happy. Happier once I taste though.

T-What an honor to have this. Same flavors as I smelled, honey, molassas and choclate malt with little hop presence(which is needed for this). I never had any other Braggots to compare this too but I am comparing to Stout's and it kicks all their butts. The back of this is a lot of honey and sweetness. In a good way!!

M-medium bottle, not syrupy but just awesome and very drinkable.

All in all, one of my top 10 beers of all time!!

The TWElve oz. poured into a snifta. Dark deep brown with some red hues w/ compliments of a nice sexy cream tan head. Long ass legs present, but expected from that skyscraping abv. Smells so sweet, honey, sweet caramel malts, milk chocolate scents as well. Uhghghghhh so goood!

Taste follows the nose, the 10.5% abv hides really well behind the curtain of sweet malts & honey. Really fucking smooth with toasted tones to it, could literally drink this big beer all day, or until my nervous system allows.

Thicker mouthfeel meshes well with the moderate carbonation & toasty malts. This is an awesome intro to braggot ales! Will be seeking more of this style out.

Wow. What an interesting brew. It reminds me of Midas Touch from Dogfish Head, but I like this better. It is dark but not smokey. Sweet and bitter. Boozy, but well disguised.

Mead by itself can be a bit much, but this has the blend going on and it really works, not just as a novelty. I would buy this again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle (4 pack) into a snifter.

First time with this style, as I haven't really seen any before.

A: Pours a very dark brown with ruby edges and a one finger tan head, leaving moderate lacing along the edges.
S: Lots of sweet honey, molasses, and perhaps some caramel malts.
T: Again, lots of sugary sweetness on the front end, some roastiness in the middle, and definite honey on the finish. No alcohol bite, surprisingly considering the abv of this one.
M: A bit sticky, yet still smooth with decent carbonation and again, no trace of an alcoholic burn.
O: My first braggot, and I'd say it passes the test. I could drink this all day if the abv weren't so high. It's on the sweet side, which I prefer from time to time to take a break from all the high abv, hop forward IIPA's, Barleywines, and RIS's.
