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.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Clear reddish-brown pour, still. Aroma is a mix of ashy, burnt coffee and earthy honey. Tastes really bad. Old burnt coffee and very sweet honey doesnít make a good combo. I know this bottle is at least a couple years old now so maybe itís aged poorly. Itís barely drinkable right now.

375 ml bottle courtesy of brad. Pours a translucent brown. Nose of coffe and fruit. Taste follows with a honey finish. Coffee has held up fairly well over time, but some of the acidity has faded.
