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.

Unglaublich weicher Antrunk von nicht zu süßem Honig. Hintergründige aber klar erkennbar himbeereige Noten, Vollmundig nach Honig, überhaupt nicht alkoholisch. Langer warmer und süßlicher Nachhall. 5/13/13/15/9/14

Bottle share by Willrunforbeer. Thank on this one. Darker brown color. Aroma has a brown sugar, molasses and oak nuances. Not sure why I smell oak because this wasn’ t placed in a barrel.

The flavor is really smooth and decadent. Layers of honey, butterscotch, brown sugar and apples. The booze is totally hidden with a syrupy, slick smooth texture. Light warming sensation after the sip. Very rich.

Pours an amber brown. Minuscule white head. Smells like honey. Flavor is wow. Taste is so sweet. Pure honey really. That’s amazing. This is the more pleasantly super sweet drink I’ve ever consumed.

Minderbinder (2793) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2015
Sample. Pours very deep copper/light brown. Nice legs. Aroma is of alcohol, honey, flowers, sweet bread, sugar, porto. Taste is of alcohol, sugar, molasses, caramel, fruits, honey, porto. Palate: Burning alcohol, very full bodied. No carbonation. Overall: Very heavy on alcohol and sugar. Cloying to say the least. Complex for sure, yet this one is too much for me. Still more than decent.

JulienHuxley (4635) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
4 oz sample. Deep brown pour, almost Clear. Aroma is really sugary tons of brown sugar, vanilla, rhum, port like winey notes, light cinnamon. Taste is very sweet, decadent boozy sweet port like flavors. Palate is strangely light bodied for the intensity of the sweetness, slightly watery finish. Good, but not as good as I expected.
