Poured a brownish red color with aromas of booze, vanilla, light earth with coffee and chocolate and a touch of sweetness. Flavors are coffee, booze, vanilla, light earth and some light honey. This is one hell of a barrel aged mead liked the concept and it did not disappoint.

500 ml bottle shared by TheAlum or some other goofball up in my room at RBSG. Pours a clear reddish color with no head. Big bourbon throughout this one, with cherry, oak, toast, brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, and honey. Very warming and boozy. Medium-full bodied, with low carbonation and a coating mouthfeel. Decadent. My kind of thing.

808s n FartRates review #10, courtesy of course of the Alum
Pours still with a dark purple color.
The aroma is very coffee and vanilla forward with lots of sweet berries and bourbon.
The flavor is strikingly akin to Bourbon County Stout, but of course with some of those fun fruity mead-y notes of blackberry & honey. The roastiness of the coffee is fantastic here though and the coffee is very well presented.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, Adam. Light brown pour. No carbonation. Intense coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Some maple and brown sugar to it as well. Tastes a lot like a White Russian, or at the very least Kaluha. Tons of creamed coffee, chocolate, and sweet brown sugar. Slight booze on the finish. I can dig it.

I am not sure just what in the hell people like about B Nektar but I am very much not into their novelty garbage myself. This is a coffee mead and that is very obviously stupid. It pours an amber color and tastes pretty much like cold coffee with a touch of honey and is overall just thick and heavy and hard to drink. It seems to me someone should have stepped in at B Nektar early on in the planning process and shef this nonsense. That did not happen and I ended up drinking it. Shame on them and shame on me.

Taste from a bottle at RBSG. Dark red brown color. Minimal head. Awesome coffee, vanilla barrel influence in the aroma. Bigger, kind of slick body. Very light if any carbonation. Good long chocolate coffee aftertaste. Moderate to bigger sweet taste. Pretty sweet. But awesome coffee chocolate honey aroma. Very nice smelling stuff to try.

Bottle @ the peteing zoo. Pours a deep brown appearance with no head. Burnt roasty bourbon aroma with some apple notes. Goopy sweet, thick caramel apple, a bit smoky, sweet honey flavor. Kind of boozy. Interesting.
