I opened a bottle last night...
It needs to age a bit longer. With that said, it has a slight cola taste to it. There are a few things that I will do differently with my next batch.
1. I will caramelize the honey longer.
2. I will back-sweeten it more. (It is too dry for me. It fermented to .998, then I back-sweetened to 1.007)
3. I will back-sweeten with honey, not dextrose. (I didn't want raw honey to interfere with the caramelized honey flavor)
I'll let you all know if it gets better with time.
