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.

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!

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.

Piękna bursztynowa barwa. Wyraźny aromat miodu, kwiatów, malin. Konsystencja bardzo lepka. W smaku słodycz miodu, maliny, rodzynki. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty, fajnie rozgrzewa przełyk.

This an absolutely beautiful reddish brown color. And it only gets better from there. A wonderful honey flavor but without being sweet really at all. Smooth and delicious, a friend’s mother brought this from Poland. Had with her home-cooked Polish dinner. Fantastic. I’m really debating giving this a perfect score.

Big thanks to Leighton for this. Dark reddy brown, slightly hazy, no head at all, legs on the glass. Aroma is very sweet and musty, lots of pungent honey, slightly sour. Body is medium to full, smooth, rich, no carbonation. Taste is sweet honey, tangy, a little salty seaweed, card, maybe clove? Nice.
