mnoud (293) - Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2014
2014.05.20 - B Nektar Black Fang - on tap at Always Rons. Pours dark red but translucent, kind of like a raspberry juice color. Slight fizzy ring around the edge. Aroma is mostly the clove. Taste is more the raspberry, but it is excellently balanced by the clove. It comes off almost like a black cherry sort of thing, Clove is obvious but not overpowering, good balance. 7/3/8/3/15

olio (7426) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
50 cl bottle.
Pours gorgeous clear ruby red color with no head. Aroma is quite intense with raspberries and blackberries, distant cherries and also some crisp orange zest notes with faint sweet hints of honey. Flavor is also quite raspberry-dominant, blackcurrant, faint caramel, honey and citric fruit notes. Starts sweet but turns dry and somewhat tart quite quickly, lingering raspberry tartness on the aftertaste. Even though the abv is moderately low for a mead, this feels like a slow sipper, there’s just a lot to take in. An excellent dessert delicacy.

Bottle. Ruby red color with no head. Aroma has lots of clove, orange and berry blended nicely. The flavor is mostly tart blackberry rounded out with clove and some of the orange in the background. I like clove so I dug this. If you hate clove you probably wont like it
