jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2007
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.

Dorwart (2419) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2007
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!

chmurarz (518) - Legnica POLAND, POLAND - JAN 3, 2007
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

My first Mead. Dark amber color with no head and no carbonataion. Aroma frightened me at first with a vineger like smell. Was worried unitl i took a sip. Very sweet. Very sweet, and very Sweet. Definitley a sipper. Took a while to get used to, but when I decided I liked it, I went back for more. Very tasty, just can’t drink too much at once.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2006
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.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2010 I like drinking mead. It makes me feel like a Viking--in this case, a Polish Viking. And this is very fine mead indeed. It pours a fiery amber and it’s viscosity is made apparent by how it clings to the side of the glass. The aroma, fierce as it is beautiful, is loaded w/ floral, spice and honey overtones w/ an undertone of brandy or port wine. Like most Polish meads, this is quite sweet but it’s sweetness is done delicately and at no point does it cloy. There’s a bit of acidity and along w/ the sweetness and holiday spice, it compliments the silken mouthfeel perfectly. Some citric and dark plummy flavors pop out in the finish. This is consistently one of the most enjoyable beverages I come across.

kp’s Fest of 26. Clear, ruby- tinged amber. Still. Easily send thick legs down the glass. Vanilla, oak and alcohol play heavily on the nose. Smooth and sweet with a cinnamon tough in the flavor. Another nice one from Spóldzielnia Pszczelarska Apis.
