Cherry, chocolate, and chipolte. A fantastic combination that just had to be made into a mead. We took a small amount of the cherry chipolte Melomel and added raw cacao nibs. The result is a melody of spice from the peppers followed by the tartness of the cherry. It finishes out with a creamy kiss of chocolate. We didnít make much, donít let this one get away. This mead begs to be paired with chocolate dessert.

Bottle at a tasting at Jamesí place, thanks to Steve. Pours a deep crimson and ruby. Smoky chipotles, like a freshly opened can of them in adobo sauce. Medium bodied, cherry comes in quickly, a hint of cocoa, lots of warmth, more cherry comes back. Really nice, complicated but approachable. Long cherry pie, touches of smoky chipotle. Delicious.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2012 Bottle shared by Steve. Pours dark cherry. Nose/taste of the perfect blend of black cherries with pits, cocoa, chili pepper, earthy vanilla and honey. Finishes with light chili pepper tingling the back of the palate. Fuller mouth feel than most meads. Slight dryness in trailing chili pepper finish after initial cherry/cocoa sweetness.

Thank you goes out to Brad for this one. Pours a very rich hue of red. Wonderful aromas of sweet honey, tart cherry juice, and earthy dried peppers. The flavor is the name. They nailed this one. It starts sweet and fruity. Hints of tart berries creeps in along with notes of earthy chocolate. As you swallow a slight warming hits the mouth and throat. This one tastes even better than I hoped it would. Cheers to Brad and the guys. They nailed this one.
