Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Bottle Share. Great acidic apple nose. Dark gold, oily and thick. Very sweet apple flavor, lots of the skin, syrupy and a bit too sweet but pretty good balance.

375 ml bottle to taster (thanks JulienHuxley). Looks good; a still, fairly transparent brownish orange. Smells good too; a nice balance of concentrated apple and soft hazelnut. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart full-bodied mouthfeel. Lightly warming, but pleasantly so. Tasty stuff.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. An amazing cinnamon apple aroma with moderate honey. Lightly nutty. Taste is very sweet with a bit of heat. Warming in the chest. A bit high boost. Hurts my chest.

Bottle shared by AdamC on 11/28/15.
Clear amber, looks "thick", though that’s tough to define.
Raspberries, apples, cherries and all sorts of boisterous fruitiness in the nose is complemented by rich vanilla, light toffee, a touch of pepper. It’s rich and beautiful, with a poignant acidity that you can sense from the nose. No alcohol.
The flavor shows intense red apple character, with allspice, cinnamon and white pepper. Lots of red fruit, sweet, rich toffee and vanilla. A bit of a premature ending, with some light oxidation, though it’s not the oxidation you’re familiar with from beer. More a dry, bready, slight thinning character. A bit of wateriness and minerality on the end with lots of acidity and apple skin. Nonetheless, it’s nitpicking one of the best ice cider producers around and this is fine, unbelievably drinkable cider, especially given its size.

375 ml bottle shared by AdamChandler, much thanks. Almost a brown Amber color. Aroma is awesome fresh pressed apples, oak and just a touch of caramel like nuance.

The flavor shows a mild oak character with beautiful pressed apples. Traces of brown sugar or caramel Maybe the alcohol is nearly completely hidden. Just a touch of sweetness to almost balance the sweet Apple. Wow! Crazy good.

Really pretty with a very burnt reddish orange color. This mead just smells insane. cinnamon cookies, apple, a little cherry pie. Insane. Cinnamon for days and days. Baked apple, sugar, brown sugar, maple, this is like the best dessert ever in a glass. the sticky oily nature of this lasts for days. Amazing. possibly the best cider ever made.

Bottle shared by AdamChandler. Thanks Adam! Pours golden brown, no head. Tart apple aroma. Flavor is amazing. Tart apple, maybe a hint of raisin. Hard to describe, but really tasty.
