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.

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.

Countbeer (5043) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle: Thanks Geophagus: Served in a Chouffe glass: Clear yellow golden with no head. Aroma is a mix of honey, cinnamon, spices, wood, apples, some soft sweet tones... Flavour is honey with wood, chalk, apples, bitters, alcohol, some soft other fruit tones, toast, sweets... Aftertaste is fruity, honey, apples, light sweet, somewhat crispy... No carbo, thick watery mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied.

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 (5182) - Ruhrcity, 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.

emerge077 (45) - RIP Johnnies, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Found this for under $10 wasting away on a dingy shelf. It’s Jadwiga’s little cousin, rich and sturdy with clover honey traces. Jewel toned amber, and a fruity chokeberry aroma, though a little bit of trace alcohol bleeds through. At 13% this is a sipper, but easy to drink a bottle over the course of a night.

Clear golden color. Aroma of honey, spices (a bit like gingerbread), berries. Sweet, but not cloying. Nicely warming. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Good mead.

Trade from Geophagus, thanks man. Clear golden body with no head. Aroma is honey, caramel, light alcohol, ripe fruit. Flavour is sweet honey, caramel, sweet ripe fruit, light boozy. Waterish mouthfeel. I have a tiny burning feeling on my lips. I like it, and I like mead more and more.
