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.

My first mead experience. Deep amber color, clear. Complex aroma very similar to port, with butterscotch, flowers, berries. The taste is primarily honey, extremely sweet with hint of metallic in the finish. Even before I read the description I picked out the rose flavor. Alcohol is almost imperceptible. I think by its nature it would be difficult to drink more than a few ounces at a time, and it produced massive cravings for water. With that, and having tried no other meads to date, I would say that it’s hard to imagine much better than this from a mead. (Bottle purchased at Julio’s).

From bottle, bought in Poland at the airport. Aroma had definitely honey, but also plum (reminds of Chinese plum wine). Body is thick, since its 16 degrees. Taste is strongly sweet and honey again. I really like this.

Pours still deep amber. Rich and sweet. Starts with honey, then dark dried fruits, sherry, light candied fruit. Has a light acidic touch after the initial sweetness. Notes of tobacco, syrup and vanilla too. Warming alcohol. Good.

Clear ruby color without foam. Sugar and honey in the nose with some alcohol. The taste is best described as thick, honey, thick, sweet, thick, quite alcoholic, thick and viscous. The aftertaste is sweet alcoholic sugary and the whole beverage is a bit too much.

anstei (1230) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle. Put forest honey. Throughout. Aroma, taste, palate. Honey, honey, honey. Boozy and sweet and heavy and intense, but who cares, because: This shit? It works. Period. (Forest and pine needle and resin aroma too, but it doesn’t really matter, believe me.)

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2016 Bottle. Slightly cloudy dark reddish color with no head. Aroma is intense flowery honey, sweet fruit liqueur, booze. Taste is sweet honey, flowery, one of the most sweet drinks I?ve ever had, but it?s so luscious. No carbonation, very viscous mouthfeel. A beauty.
