Wonderful mead donated by Cuso and shared with McTapps. Thick one with loads of plums and some cherries in the back. Highly drinkable with a decent honey background. Sweet and bit strong. Definitely a classy one.

Bottle with many thanks from Imro! The mead pours out in a beautiful clear deep honey-amber colour with smooth body. Wonderful aroma of honey and herbs. Taste of intense honey, herbs, mild spices and spruce. Deep and complex taste with a wonderful smooth body. Enjoyed it a lot.

Bottle 18 cl at Gothenburg Beer Festival 2013 (Haket), Saturday, sampled on September 7, 2013.
Wrote down "Apimed Medovina Tmava" 18 cl 13,5% ABV, z lesného medy.
Clear deep golden color, no head, no legs. Sweet, solvents, apple, honey, alcohol scent. Sweet, honey, sugary taste. Honey aftertaste. Warming alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, low to no bitterness. Something just feels slightly off about it, especially in the taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep golden brown. Aroma of honey, mild booze, and subtle spice. Flavor is deep honey, earthy and sweet. Mild spice and hints of mint. Subtle dark fruit notes and a bit of chemical. A lot going on here. Not bad but my least favorite of all the Apimed meads I have tried.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Clear pinkish copper, with an odd aroma of spice and thrift store. Taste is funny and syrupy, with some weird stale honey, stale funny citrus rind, on a thick chewy body with some mulling spice notes. Not a fan at all.

At a tasting, lightish amber colour, aroma of honey, pears and dried apricots, intense honey flavour with some light dried fruits, apples and some spices, very sweet but with just a touch of sourness. Very good.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks tomer. Clear amber. Aroma of honey, caramel, some fruity notes and a floral spicy hint. Sweet flavor with honey, light acidic notes, a light floral note and a light alcohol burn in the finish. Pretty syrupy, but smooth. A good mead.
