4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 250 ml bottle. Lovely colors, orange-amber, separating into cleaner the edge, oily. Huge honey aroma, with wood and a bit of oxidation, sherry, aged Sauternes, alcohol, and a bit of sweet orange and berry. Mostly honey though. Well acidic flavor, though sweet honey through and through as well. Citrus:sweet orange and lemon. Sweet finish with some tart tang. Excellent stuff. Probably too sweet to drink a lot, though.

Bottle at Fermentation. Deep golden pour. Sweet brown sugar, toasty, berries and honey aroma. Mouth coating palate with flavors similar to the aroma, deep toasty and darkened fruit with brown sugar. Pretty good stuff.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2013 dobry ale stanowczo za slodki jak dla mnie, zbyt jest mocno wyczuwalny miod, dosc spora lepkosc i cukrow. Kolor ladny ciemno zloty, zapach typowy dla miodow, naturalny, ale jak dla mnie wciaz za slodki. Ulepkowy i landrynkowy na ustach. Uwaga bo zgaga gotowa gdy się przesadzi z ilościa.

Bottle share courtesy of sebletitje. This makes my 50th mead rating! The bottle pours coppery bronze and leaving behind classic thick legs on the inside of the glass. The aroma is musty earthy sweet honey and a bit of a paper sensation at the end of the draw. The taste is rich yummy smooth sweet honey with a light caramelized sugar sort of sensation. Behind those notes is a faint sweet earthiness adding to the depth of the experience. Terrific mead.

750 ml bottle. Clear coppery colour, no head. Overpowering, sweet aroma of honey, berries, fermented fruits, spices and alcohol. The flavour is sweet, liqueur-like, dominated by honey with spices and berries in the background. Full-bodied and sticky, no carbonation. Delicious.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks a ton Caleb. Murky brownish black pour with no head, aroma brought big notes of sour fruits, currants, blackberry, some honey, oak, and vanilla come through as well, big and rich. Taste is excellent, has the sweetness from the berry, currants, sour cherry like flavors, mixing with sweet honey, going into nice tannic, slightly tart notes, finishing with a mix of sweet and sour and dry. Tasty, and I almost prefer it in a different way than the Jadwiga.
