This is a purely aesthetic and experiential taste, lacking the comfortable drinkabilty of an easier brew. I’m glad I was given the opportunity to taste this mead and learn about its historical significance. The experience of sampling this mead has been similar to the transcendant lucidity of an acid trip, whereby you are miraculously revealed to the vivid nature of the Earth’s substances.....Perhaps, I’ve lost you or... you are completely enthrawed. Regardless, this mead is full of honey, vanilla, and sweet refreshment. It is deliciously smooth, insidiously revealing its decor of tastefulness. I reccomend giving this mead a taste if afforded the

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.

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.
