Bottle. Thanks to Sk8viking. Dark red color with a white none head. Aroma is heavy honey, fruit, berries, raisins, spices and alcohol (like a sherry or port). Taste is heavy sweet with a long duration. Body is full, texture is syrupy, carbonation is flat, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. Lovely nice and complex.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 Sample from 50 cL bottle. Pours deep orange. Aroma is honey, spicy, no real alcohol feel. Alcohol comes up once a sip is taken, it has a strong alcohol odour which goes into the eyes. Flavour is sweet honey, raisins with a strong spice note, goes into a apple sourness and ends sugary sweet.

Bottled. A deep red-brown mead. The aroma has strong notes of honey and pollen. The flavor is very sweet - though not cloying with strong notes of honey, spices, and alcohol, leading to a sweet, but dry and spicy finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Beautiful warm, reddish amber with no head whatsoever. Sweet, alcoholic nose of caramel and alcohol. Extremely full-bodied and extremely complex flavour pattern with loads of honey and fruit acents. But this is EXTREMELY sweet - actually I don’t believe I’ve ever had anything this sweet in my life. I love its complexity but am having trouble with its sugary sweetness. 260806

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Bottle @ yespr tasting. No head. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich honey, raspberries, caramel notes, warming alcohol. Nice and vinous. Lovely.
Original rating 11/8/2005 back when I disliked mead: 4/3/7/4/15 Smell of sherry, taste exactly like sherry, but too sweet. If you like mead I guess it’s okay...
