I've been told that unless the Braggot base beer is of the "light" nature, such as a wheat, that it's just a waste of good honey because the honey won't be evident in something like a Porter.
Not true. I brewed a Baltic Porter braggot last year with orange blossom honey that placed first or second best of show for mead/cider in three or four competitions this year. I had brewed a big batch of Baltic Porter, cooled most of it and pitched a lager yeast, then added honey to the remaining wort, cooled and pitched more lager yeast onto that. I forced carbonated it for competitions. It had a nice balance of orange blossom honey and roastiness from the malts.
