Pours still, perfectly clear, with a beautiful reddish brown color. The mead coats the glass when swirled and leaves beautiful legs on the glass.

The mead is rich smelling and pungent, certainly some dark fruit, lots of honey, lots of wildflower floral notes, a little tequila, and some spice.

The flavor is very rich, fairly boozy in kind of a warming and spicy way. The honey flavor is very distinct, rich and sweet but this is well complimented by the light acidity from the blackcurrant. The only thing I’ve ever had that compares to something like this is Tokaij which is similar in it’s richness and sweetness, but this is something else entirely.

lusikka (5338) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2013 750 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber copper colour without a head. Aroma is really complex with wood, strong honey, caramel and licorice root. Flavour is sweet with loads of honey, wood, caramel, licorice root, green apples and some syrupy notes. Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel and a warming, fruity, sweet finish. Not as good as their Jadwiga, but much better than Korzenny. A well balanced Mead.

750 ml bottle. Same bottle as before after 6 months.
Pours a dark mahogany colour without a head. Aroma of sweet honey, wood and some citrusy notes. Flavour of smooth sweet honey, caramel, berries, hay and some juiciness. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a fruity, sweet, caramel finish. Enjoyable still. Same points. This is still in perfect condition after 6 months. Just remember to store it as required.

olio (5272) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2012
75 cl bottle.
Pours clear dark copper color with a minimal head. Aroma of berries, honey, some white wine elements, toffee, wood, rose hip, grass and mild vanilla notes. Flavor of honey, grain, some malts, caramel, toffee and a mild alcohol burn at the end. Like overly sweet strawberry jam. The sweet honey takes over as soon as it hits your tongue. The alcohol tries to fight through but in vain. A very nice mead, and very deceptive.

75 cl bottle @ home. No #22272.
Quite dark appearance for a mead. Alcoholic aroma fills our table immediately when pouring. A closer smell reveals these aromas: alcohol, honey, some root beer notes and distant woody notes. When I take my nose out of the glass and smell again, the root beer notes get stronger. Flavour is sweet; it starts with alcohol and root beer notes. Finishes with honey and woody notes. The honey gets stronger towards the end of the glass. Good, although the alcohol disturbs. Not as good as Jadwiga.

Rest of the bottle @ lusikka
Bottle has been closed with its own cork, plastic wrap and tape, kept in room temp and re-opened after half an year. Still as good, no signs of ageing or contamination whatsoever.

This was horrible. Taste and aroma was honey and alcohol. I’ve liked high % and sweet beers like dark & sweet horizon, so i though i’d like this one also but nope. Didn’t want to drink anymore after the first few sips.

Bottle shared by Captain Cougar. Thanks! Pours a clear dark amber color. Dark aroma with notes of honey, sherry and wood. The taste is intensely sweet honey, raisin, sherry, citrus and a slight medicinal note. Full bodied.

750mL thanks to CaptainCougar. Clear amber. Small to weak legs. Nose is starchy, sweet, red fruits. Taste is mega sweet with lemon and grape drank. A little too sweet for me. Thinner, flat soda palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
