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.

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).

Still mahogany / crimson body. Aromas of honey - raspberry character is a bit overshadowed by sweet honey character. The berry character does reveal itself more in the flavor. However, this is definitely a honey forward beverage. Sweet and viscous. A delightful drink to sip and savor.

Bottle. Dark brown in colour. Lots of burned sugar, molasses and honey notes. In taste honey, butterscotch, apples and burned sugar. Texture is oily, syrupy, alcohol is there but is pleasant. Very good.

Koelschtrinker (14557) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 22, 2015
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.

750ML Corked bottle, ceramic bottle. Thanks Brian for sharing.

A - This mead is very dark black, orange, burnt color

S - The aroma is straight up honey, a lot of burnt aroma but with some tree fruit, baked apples and oranges.

T - Taste is apple, brandy, baked apples, a ton of fruit in this one. This is really really awesome

M - Dense, thick, oily and sweet. Lingering burnt brown sugar

O - This is insanely good!

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.
