A deep red pour. Looks like black cherry koolaid. A faint potpourri aroma. Blackberry definitely dominates the flavor. It has a slight almost peppery tingle that it leaves on the back of your tongue. I can’t pinpoint the flavor but overall nice mouthfeel.

Pours a dark ruby red with no head. Aroma is sweet berries, honey. Taste is sweet berries, honey, has a nice blood orange kind of zest with some clove notes, some mild tart flavor. Palate is a medium body, sweet on the palate without being overbearing. Finish is sweet berries and honey, some mild tart flavor, a nice blood orange zest, with a lingering honey clove ending. Overall a very tasty and enjoyable mead.

Lukasmh (610) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2015
Tap. Pours ruby red with small light pink head. Aroma is yam and christmas. Clove, mead and honey. Taste has an abundance of christmas spices and fruity blackberries. Really fizzy. Reminiscent of glögg. Tart berries in finish.

thedm (5160) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 25, 2015
This bottled Mead from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of frothy off-white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated semi-transparent purple hued colored body and a poor lacing. The weak aroma was sweet and honey. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering sweet aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of blackberry red currant jelly cloves orange sweet and honey. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Meilby (9728) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle 500ml @ Geokkjer
Pours dark reddish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of honey, blackberries and cloves. Taste is medium sweet with a long blackberry, clove and orange finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. A bit heavy on the clove and reminds a bit of cold mulled wine, but still very nice.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle. An unclear, dark ruby colored mead with a small, pinkish head. There’s lots of berries in the aroma, cloves as well, and a touch of honey in the back. Some citrus notes in the flavor, with honey notes, dark berries and a good dash of cloves. A bit too much cloves I think, it’s sort of like drinking an unheated gløgg. Nice though. Medium body, smooth on the palate. Long finish with orange zest, cloves and dark berries. Quite decent this one, but a tad heavy on the cloves. 150808

northropfrye (2807) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
Darker body than most meads. Sweet, but not overly so. Honey, of course, with an added subtle element of berries and spices. A decent mead.
