larsga (7102) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 No head. Amber body. Intense alcoholic apple, honey, and raisins aroma with apricot notes. Intense sweet honey and apple taste with considerable alcohol taste and heat. Raisins. Some vanilla and wood as well. Soft, clean palate. Great! (0.75l bottle from a honey shop in Krakow. For best results, pour into a small glass, and leave the mead to rest for 10-15 minutes before smelling and testing. This dissipates the alcohol, leaving a very nice mead inded.)

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
750mL bottle, courtesy of sprinkle. Thanks, Mike! Pours a clear, bright orangish-amber color; nice legs; almost identical in appearance to Jadwiga (consumed side-by-side). Tons of honey and floral notes and toasty vanilla: more blatant alcohol presence than the Jadwiga; just a bit less refined. Full mouthfeel: incredibly dense honey and floral and candy sugar presence; actually a bit less alcohol presence upfront than Jadwiga, but more one-dimensional; doesn’t quite have the same density and smoothness; still, an exceptionally tasty, bold, and generous mead. Lengthy, honey and dense floral / sugar finish. Excellent.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Bottle from Grapes of Mirth. Wonderful deep golden color. The aroma is divine--floral honey and some oak notes? The taste is thick and juicy with a syrupy honey flavor and a definite alcohol presence. Very enjoyable.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2007
A mice Dwojniak. Almost as sweet as Jadwiga with a nicer aroma. A touch thinner of course, but it’s more of a mead you can drink every day, and it’s still much thicker than Lurgashall.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Bottle: Dark bourbon color, thick legs. Nose of bright varnished wood and thick sundried honey. Caramelized and light soy notes. Some more sweet floral notes and an overwhelming amount of umami and honey. The flavor is sweet and chewy, strong and very oxidized and sherryish. Finishes long and drawn out. Interesting mead, complex but not incredibly balanced. Hot and sweet. Yum.
