Nose
Huge honeyed aroma, thick and floral, easily overwhelming chocolate.
Palate
Again, loaded with floral, perfumed honey, bringing a soft, silky texture. The firm bitterness behind, and the chalky chocolate note, are rather obscured, however.
Finish
Honey lingers powerfully until an aggressive bitterness eventually takes over.
Comment
St Peter's are imaginative brewers, but they've overplayed the honey in this one and it detracts from the flavours of the base beer, rather than complementing them. That said, surprisingly it's not too sweet.
