Pours an amber brown. Minuscule white head. Smells like honey. Flavor is wow. Taste is so sweet. Pure honey really. That’s amazing. This is the more pleasantly super sweet drink I’ve ever consumed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very deep copper/light brown. Nice legs. Aroma is of alcohol, honey, flowers, sweet bread, sugar, porto. Taste is of alcohol, sugar, molasses, caramel, fruits, honey, porto. Palate: Burning alcohol, very full bodied. No carbonation. Overall: Very heavy on alcohol and sugar. Cloying to say the least. Complex for sure, yet this one is too much for me. Still more than decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
4 oz sample. Deep brown pour, almost Clear. Aroma is really sugary tons of brown sugar, vanilla, rhum, port like winey notes, light cinnamon. Taste is very sweet, decadent boozy sweet port like flavors. Palate is strangely light bodied for the intensity of the sweetness, slightly watery finish. Good, but not as good as I expected.

(bottle, many thanks to the mead-mule for this one!) clear amber-ruby colour with no head. aroma of dark wild honey and lots of honeycomb wax, with a very faint touch of raspberries and earth. flavour is more honey and beeswax, appropriately sweet though never cloying, with a heavy earthiness, lots of moist wood, some bread dough and a slightly minerally warming finish. full-bodied and viscous with no carbonation.

Bottle. Pours an amazing clear amber, sticky and crazy lacing. Aroma is sweet, honey, heather, nutty, somme booze and light fruitiness. Taste has more spice and is kind of flowery. Slight grapefruit zest. Really nutty, walnut, prunes, toffee and liquor port-like booze. Slight slight tartness. Warming light dry finish, sticky and sugary, caramel.
