This was part of the Samuel Adams Fancy beer box; every brewery produces them. Sadly the Canadian ones only contain 12 beers, while the US one contain 24.
Samuel Adams Honey Porter
Ratebeer 3.16 58th percentile
Beer Advocate B+
This brew pours a dark brown/ruby with a huge fluffy head that never goes away. The nose is usual porter style; roasted malt, cocoa but this one adds a hint of raw honey. Your first taste is unexpectedly shocking from a big box beer mix. Straight off you are flooded with a blast of roasted, bittersweet malt with just a slight hop bitterness at the end. Hints if cocoa are also present. The bitterness fades off to release a flowery honey ending.
Very pleasantly, a full mouth coating of honey/malt slides all the way down your throat and fades away slowly. This is followed closely with a roast/hop bitterness.

It comes in a box, so I was not expecting much.
I would get this one again, if available.

No zombies here. This was purchased at some nameless, cookie cutter big box grocery store in Palm Springs. It was the best choice among the boxed beer variety pack.
This was above average American big brew; which is not saying much.
