3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has an impressive amount of coffee hanging around for such an old mead. Creates a weird juxtaposition between the honey sweetness and the sort of earthy coffee tones, not bad but not great.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle with a sticker stamped: 1220511.
Appearance: The body is an amber to copper with a velvety haze.
Aroma: The aroma is huge and distinct of coffee while my glass is near a foot away. Up close the aroma reminds me of mild vanilla with huge earthy iced coffee aromas. Gosh the aroma is so incredible with so much coffee.
Taste: The intro is of mild honey but develops into a slightly bitter/sour cold black coffee flavor with a chewy underlying sugar flavor. The intro is really bland, but once this kicks in it’s like a black iced coffee with too much sugar. The finish lingers slightly sour like old coffee.
Palate: Near thick with no carbonation.
Overall: Maybe this is too old, I’m guessing it’s from 2011, as the coffee has become a bit stale and sour, but this is probably amazing fresh. The coffee aroma is surreal.
