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.

The last few ounces of a bottle thanks to CanIHave4Beers. Super smooth. The alcohol is very well hidden, and what is there just adds character to the raspberry. Very nectar-y.

Aroma is honey, cherry, raisins, and alcohol. Taste is sweet and mild, with honey, maple, raisins, and some spice (but surprisingly, no raspberries). A little spice, bitterness, and some drying alcohol in the finish. Probably not for everybody, but I thought this was just great.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 Sample at ÖÖWF. Sweet smell with some brandy. Very sweet taste, fruity with lots of honey. This was like drinking liquid honey or syrup. Very special, I definitely want to drink it again, but a small sample is enough for me. Re-rated at home. It has a boozy smell but the taste is amazing. Sweet with dried fruit and honey.

25 cl. fles gedeeld met Belgbeergeek & Sebletitje @ Belgian Ratebeer Winter Gathering of Ultimate Evil. Bedankt Seb. dat jij mij verteld hebt waar jij dit kunt kopen. Lichtjes donker, koperen vloeistop. Aroma is boordevol met honing, helder, zacht maar lekker dik, dikke karamel, lichte eik, alchol domineert lichtjes maar dit is niet al te storen en valt best te verwachten. Zachte, dikke, lichtjes olieachtige honing, dik, rijk aan suiker, heerlijk zoet met een prachtig blijvende honingzoetheid in de mond, fruit is minder uitgesproken dan verwacht maar geeft wel een mooi fruit likeur toets aan het geheel, frambozen zijn subtiel, getemd, heerlijk, lichte zoete kruiden en eiken toetsen. Vol, slik, lichtjes olie achtig, de meed blijft echt aan de binnenkant van het glas plakken … absoluut heerlijk – prachtige honingwijn. Pure klasse.

Bottle at the Colorado Mead Tasting ’12, courtesy of Armin. Thanks Man! Pour is deep copper with no head and good legs. Raisins, spiced rum, honey, figs, a touch of raspberry, and maple syrup in the aroma. Taste is sweet banana, raisins, bourbon, a touch of acid, maple syrup, wood, and light cocoa. Syrupy mouthfeel with no carbonation. Great mead!

Colorado mead tasting 2012 - cloudy dark copper - nose of brown sugar, date, maple, raisin, fig - slick, smooth mouthfeel - a little boozy, but that is really the only drawback - flavors of raisin, fig, overripe banana, rum, molasses - finish of spiced rum - really tasty stuff.
