Thanks Brian for sharing the 2015 version of this.

A - Very faint light yellow. a little bit of carbonation on the head…super faint.

S - Bourbon and cinnamon dominate the aroma. You smell booze.

T - The taste is incredibly complex. I didn’t think all of that flavor could be in one bottle. Maple, cinnamon sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, doughy malt and vanilla, bourbon, whiskey…there’s just so much in here.

M - Not too thick, the sweetness comes in the middle and lingers for a very long time.

O - This is a very interesting mead. Sweet but not cloying, could drink an entire bottle of this stuff!

Brian’s Grand Mead tasting. thanks for this Willrunforbeer! Clear pale yellow. Aroma is off the damn chain. Banana foster, cinnamon, bread and a dough like character. I never thought they could really get a "French Toast". I’m surprised!

Flavor is just like the aroma any I am besides myself with the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is fuller with the bready/ dough body giving a fuller mouthfeel. Maple syrupy like feelings. The cinnamon and banana is crazy. I am a pretty hard person to impress at this point in my Mead/beer/ cider tasting. This is insanely good and have so much flavor I don’t even taste any honey. Really something different, well done!

375mL from trade. So excited to finally try this! Pours pale white gold, just a few tiny white bubbles, no legs. Aroma is banana, maple, bourbon. Flavor is banana, maple, cinnamon, bourbon. Does taste like a banana French toast with bourbon barrel aged maple syrup. There’s a little bit of carbonation that I’m not sure is intended. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Neat.

Bottle, 2014 with thanks to fishmich! Pours clear pale golden, no head, no lacing. Aroma is honey, bourbon, apple, maple. Flavor is fairly sweet, lots of apple for some reason, honey, bourbon, some maple, but not a lot. I can see bananas, but only ’cause the description tells me they are there. Lots of apple. Why apple? Medium body, smooth, ABV (14% for this vintage) is very well hidden. Tasty.

chucklemation (741) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours a very clear whitish-yellow. Aroma is honey and lots of spices, such as cinnamon and maybe nutmeg. that is reminiscent of good french toast, along with a touch of bourbon. Flavor is sweet honey, nut, and spices. This is just incredible. The blend of spices and sweetness is spot-on. There is no hint of booze, and the mead goes down nice and smooth. It’s too bad this is so rare and pricey.

375 ml bottle at home. Pours clear light golden, no head, no carbo. The nose is an utter and unique bouquet making one think of some sturdy European sweet dishes: apfelstrudel, speculoos and ’een goei snee kramiek me een dikke plak goeie boereboter deroep’ aka raisin bread with the thickest of butters. Two aromas lead the dance: cinnamon and thick honey, supported by a buttery flowery scent, a tad of alccohol in the nose, the wine touch makes one think of glühwein as well (the reference is interesting, but glühwein is crap), etc. One of the most beautiful bouquets ever found in a mead (although I haven’t tasted a lot of m yet). Medium body, high sweetness, high on the ethanol side as well makes one think of a warm winter warmer. Taste is pear, white wine, apricots and cinnamon let it be in smaller doses than in the nose. Magnificent!

Pours a still golden; aroma is a phenomenal blend of banana, maple, and bourbon. Taste is true to the aroma, but better. Thrilled I got even a small sample to taste.
