From the bottle as part of a mead flight at Sunset Grill on 11/17/07
Deep golden with light chartreuse/crimson tints and no head (still). Clear, with strong, dense legs.
A smattering of cinnamon-like spices nip at the nose before a juicy, rich honey and maple aroma develops. Earthy, almost, dirty notes interrupt and are dashed away by a light vinousness and a vanilla finale. Really all over the place, though the alcohol is definitely felt and juicy red apples seem to pervade as well. Not sure what accounts for the dirty/earthy notes, but those are one of the few things attempting to balance the exceeding fruitiness/sugariness. Rather old and tired as well. Medium to medium-high strength of aroma. No flaws, but plenty of alcohol.
Red wine, elderberries and even some blood orange notes seep in to the richly sweet honey flavors, with more earthiness and almost something like tree bark. Vanilla is light on the finish, and is consumed by a bittersweet vinousness that is supplemented with alcohol warmth (dryness). Good, I guess....but it just seems like a Sam Smiths Impy stout. It seems wonderful at first, just like the jadwiga, but the more you drink, the more you come to appreciate the more natural, unpasteurized/unfiltered stuff. Seems pretty commercialized here.

Pour from a 750 ml bottle shared by STLWill - thanks again, Will! Pours a clear gold with no head. Good legs. Notes of honey, apple, plum, grape, wood - medium bodied, with low carbonatoin and a coating mouthfeel. Never even heard of chokeberry juice before, but it appears to be cutting it a bit. Sweet and smooth. Not as big as Jadwiga but decadent in its own right.

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2015
25 cl bottle from Stanpol, Warsaw. Ambrée, léger filament doré au verre. Arôme est agréablement bien mielleux, fleuri trčs organique sur des effluves caramel, de cire d’abeille. Palais, je ressens un mielleux plus subtil que la Copernicus essayée juste avant. La douceur se veut plus discrčte, retrouve une pointe d’astringence du miel sur un fini fleuri et râpeux en bouche.

Eine sehr feine Geschichte hier. Kaum vorzustellen, was man aus Honig und co. so alles gewinnen kann. Auf der einen Seite zwar brutal süß, aber dahinter liegt eine feine Würze. Mir passt dies alles ganz gut und gewisse fruchtige Momenten neben Pfeffer und Chili stellen sich fix ein. Klasse.

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2015
Sample from Robert - many thanks! The mead has got a clear deep golden colour with a smooth body. Aroma of honey and herbs. Taste of intense, yet mild honey, eukalyptus, flowers and mild herbs. Smooth to drink with not being too sweet. Tastes very natural. Enjoyed it a lot. Very warming and quaffable.
