When did you add the honey? This was my first time brewing with honey, but I have read that it's flavor easily breaks down in the boil.
Ive also read that raw honey needs to be added to the kettle at some point as you could get an infection from it.
I've no idea which is true or even if they are mutually exclusive but I chose to add as late in the boil as I was comfortable with. For me this was flameout. We'll see if it worked.
My buddy brewed this with some rather generic honey from the grocery and he did the same thing I did for the honey addition. He said at bottling time it smelled of alcohol and honey.
