Nectar source. Buckwheat for example is very dark and aromatic. I like it, but it may be an acquired taste. Rachel

Maybe break a cap and try some, see if you like it.
Buckwheat is one I've had. It's closer to molasses in flavor than honey. Great for bread and such, but yeah, it's different tasting! It should still have the consistency of honey, just might taste different.
One Jersey queen: Briar Rose, plus a few cats and chickens. That's our farm these days!
differint flowers make dark honey ,the bees love when the locust trees bloom and will work them for the short time they are there so those frames will be dark , them when they work the thissel blooms the honey is nearly clear .

The antioxidants and other properties including flavonoids , quercetin etc are way higher in the darkest honeys. Dark honey is actually much healthier for you and tremendously appealing to buyers and sells quickly to people who came it's healing and medicinal called. We dance the darkest honey for us in the winter for when we may get colds etc
I kind if wing it. Berries a little water to get the juices started, fresh ginger root, cinnamon stick and whole clove simmer low and reduce by about half. Amounts of spice depend on the amount of berries. The honey is about half whatever the amount of berry juice.

Some of the Australian eucalypt trees produce dark honey- it's yum:) Pattersons curse honey is really light in colour- there's acres and acres of that in some places around here. A friend of mine is a full time bee keeper. It amuses him that a lot of city people like their honey almost colourless- not "honey coloured" .
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
