COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This was 16 ABV. Nice yellow colour, not fantastic aroma but very nice. Powerfull sweet flavour og honey. Nice mouthfeeling. But mead is not my strong side.

Not much aroma, but wonderful taste of fruits and honey. Is this a sherry or is the a mead. Great taste.

I tried this on the advice of a freind of mine. To say I liked it is a vast understatement. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous. Lusicous taste of honey, hint of raspberry and rose. Amazing smell. When you swirl it in the glass, it has amazingly thick legs. I’ll be buying more of this for sure!

haukur (1531) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 15, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2014 quite the unusual and pleasant experience! Never tasted a mead before so I wasnt sure what I was expecting, I bought this with a pair of glasses which could be heated with a candle. Nothing much when tasted on room temperature, sugary, honey, a bit thich. When I heated this up it was very different, I felt carbonation on my tongue, a bit syrupy but not in a bad way. Some honey, some bitterness, other floral notes, candy sugar, very very nice but hard to take, I suggest this as a nightcap, and not too much of it.

Sampled on 11/23/2003: Pours an uncarbonated clear copper orange. Sweet complex dark honey, plum and alcohol aroma. Body has an oily thickness which coats the tongue. Imagine adding raisins to maple syrup, sprinkling brown sugar on top, adding pure alcohol and blending it together. More of a sipping after dinner drink. The thick sweet body hides the alcohol from the palate with a sticky finish. You’ll really like this if you’re into different liqueurs. It may take some time for me to really appreciate meads more, but even three ounces was a task to finish.

Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2005
Thanks to mark for this one: One of the best meads i’ve had to date. Very smooth start and finish with just the right amount of honey/oak and maple finishes, better aged although extremely sweet, a perfect desert drink. Excellent

DYCSoccer17 (3545) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 20, 2005
My 2nd f’ing rating because something froze.. Aroma is identical to the Kaztelanski. Sweet, musty, tofee-ish. COlor is copper and transparent with no head like the previous mead. Cough cough cough...holy asthma inflicting...Sweet to start with lot of fruitiness and a slightly burning alcoholic sensation. Tasty and meant for small small amounts. Better than the previous mead. Thanks for Beeradvocating me!

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2005
clear copper pour. Butterscotch, maple syrup and honey are the dominant aromas. Quite complex aroma. Smooth, vineous, alcoholic start, some earthiness, mellowing to ultra sweetness from honey, maple syrup. Finish is so sweet, this would make a great dessert drink.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Deep crimson brown with no movement or activity. Fiery, honey and maple oak vat sweetness pervades the nose with elements of lavender, saffron, caramel and pine combs gliding along. Sweet honey suckle rose flavor, along with nectar taken straight from the source. So smooth, fresh and delectable. Wondrous balance and finish. Thanks for your generosity, JPDIPSO!

Thanks to John for sharing a sample. The aroma is very hot. I get some fingernail polish. Thank god the flavor makes up for the strong aroma. It pours to a dark bronze body with no head. It sticks to the glass (legs). The flavor is sweet honey. Very nice. The palate is smooth. If it weren’t for this smelling like raunchy fingernail polish, this would definitely rate higher...
