A type of German Bärenfang (literally ‘bear trap’) honey liqueur, Bärenjäger (‘bear hunter’) is a delicious vodka-based liqueur that can be enjoyed straight over ice, added to tea or a hot toddy, or even poured straight on vanilla ice cream.
Aroma: Smells like fortified honey - basically it is.
Taste: Thick and syrupy but spirity rather than overly sweet. Thick set honey, a touch of vanilla, nutmeg, cocoa powder, clove and honey cake.
Aftertaste: Lingering honey and nutmeg spice. A fabulous liqueur for a winter's night. Great in cocktails.

This is one tasty liquer that slides down easily. The smell of honey is distinct and overpowering but the taste is remarkable. I would recommend this to anybody - best drunk in the evening by a roaring fire watching a good movie!
