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.

Many thanks to SoLan for the bottle. Pours clear with a pinkish amber color. Sweet floral honey with pears, raisins, and alcohol also in the nose. Flavors of rum soaked raisins, floral honey, pears, ripe apples, and booze. Very much like a dessert wine. Thick huge viscous mouthfeel. Awesome stuff. I will be savoring this bottle over quite a few nights.

Jultsu (599) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - APR 15, 2016
750ml peruspullo, joskin myös maisteltu punottu erikoispullo ja 250ml minipullo. Jumalaisen hyvää tavaraa aina. Hapoton, hyvin rikkaan tummanpunaisen ruskea väri. Tuoksussa rusinaa, kukkaa. Suutuntuma ensin alkoholisen hyökkäävä, mutta heti pehmenee suussasulavaksi makeudeksi, jopa lievää vetisyyttä hetkittäin yläpäässä. Lämmin jälkipolte ja koko suun valtaava pyöreä makeus. Makeuden lisäksi ei juuri muita ominaisuuksia havaittavissa, jonka vuoksi pisteetkin noin alhaiset.

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.

mateuszk (1584) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 26, 2015
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 (16417) - 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.
