Taste NotesMalt syrup and dark honey aromas predominate, followed by a combination of walnut and pine tar aromas. Flavor is also faintly sweet initially but finishes dry with a crisp hop bitterness. Color is medium brown with tan head. Head and lacing is fleeting
NotesThe inspiration for this beer was a recent study showing that buckwheat honey had more anti-oxidants than other honies. Since anti-oxidants have been promoted by the brewing industry, why not try and make a pleasing beer with more anti-oxidants?
Buckwheat honey was added at last 15 min of boil.
