Have you considered making a braggot (mead made with malt and hops)?

I had great results with this recipe. I used 2 lbs of Orange Blossom Honey.

i started at 2 weeks after bottling, but found at 3 and 4 weeks it was better. Which is the case every time I brew.

Second the Braggot Wow that was fantastic

My favorite thing to add to beer is honey. You need to be a little bit careful though, like someone else said. For most beers, especially med to low gravity, you should use honey as 20% or lower of your total fermentables. If you get into the 1.060's or 1.070's I would say you could go up to 30%. In my experience anything above that give too dry of a taste and takes longer to age out. You have to play with it to see what you like, but that is my advice. Good Luck!

I have a honey porter going in the fermenter and it's filled the house with a great honey aroma. Hopefully some aroma is left in the beer.
