4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
At the 2007 Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines festival in Vail. Another fantastic mead. The black currant flavors were huge and outstanding. Orange gold in color, still with no head. Fearless aroma of the wooded fruit flowers. Super thick sugary sweetness is mellowed by the intense black currant flavor. Love it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Dorwart. Clear orange/amber color with obviously no head. Sweet honey aroma(duh!), with notes of wildflowers, sherry and light wood. Flavor is very sweet, with a bright honey flavor that is accented by a nice floral undertone. I did not detect any black currant in the aroma, but there was a slight fruity taste in the finish. Somewhat port like in it’s aftertaste. I did not like this as much as the Poltorak, but it was still excellent and definitely the second best mead I have ever had.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
No head no carbonation. Friggin awesome aroma. Rich sweet and alcoholic. Fills the head with the fragrance of wildflowers, butter and sweet, fruity honey. Nice legs up the sides of the glass. Color is a crystal clear dark orange. Flavor is slick and oily with loads of flavor. Sweet and succulent. Very warming. More dark fruit and flowers. Maybe a little lavendar. Floral notes become more prominent late swallow. Finish is oily and very long and warming. I think that this is a little less sweet than jagwida and just as good. Another damn fine mead. You just need to take it slow with this one and savor the flavor. MMMM MMMM good!

no head in meads, pinkish orange colour, aroma of alcohol, strong honey, cognac, flavour of strong honey, as for 16% the alcohol is hid very well, warming, balanced, the cathegories of rating palate are to be completly different because I can not find any way of drinking it as a beer so the palate is balanced and oily

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a clear amber color with oily legs upon swirling. Thick sweet aroma and flavor as expected. Since I am not a huge honey fan meads can be hit or miss with me. The honey had good balance in this. Just enough for me. Some light spiced appeared when the sweetness faded. Of course a fair amount of alcohol but balanced enough by the sweetness. Extra point for 16% drinkability.
