It has very rich specific fragrance due to the addition of raspberries and wild rose to nectar honey.

1 litre of Półtorak style mead contains 720 g of natural honey. By comparison, the Dwojniak style of mead contains 610g/L of honey; the Trojniak contains 420g/L and the Czworniak contains 320g/L.

Półtorak mead matures for several years to achieve full clarity. In time its rich aroma hides a high content of alcohol (16%) and acidity forming the finest liquor there is.

Bottle @ Craft Clerko. Thanks to Mr Smith for supplying this longtime want! Amber pour with a small ring of bubbles. Nose is very strong and sweet. Straight concentrated honey. Nutmeg and cinnamon spices. General boozy heat. The flavor is very, very sweet and not as nuanced as I had hoped. Loads of honey, caramel. Little else. A touch of earthy wax. Cloying. Decent stuff, but I was a bit let down by this considering its lofty reputation.

750ml bottle. Pours a clear brown-red color. Aroma is hot, vinous, port honey. Flavor is honey forward, raisins, lacking any distinct raspberry tartness or flavor. Very smooth, extremely sweet, slightly oxidized. Overall good mead, not very balanced, but the sweetness is pleasant. Opens up nicely.

umich03jm (3427) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is so intense and rich. Musty, earthy honey, flowers, light raspberry, maple, and oak. Tastes intensely sweet but also a bit of booze. All the aromas are there with some syrupy butterscotch too. Full body, syrupy mouthfeel. Very good but also hard to drink more than a few ounces.

Na, das war doch mal was interessantes. Angenehm in der Säure mit einer wunderbaren Fruchtigkeit, hier angelehnt an Kirsche und Zitrone. Dahinter ein feiner Schuss Honig. So süffig und vollmundig - Klasse.
