COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Many years ago, a mysterious book was discovered by a group of friends in a Ferndale, MI basement. A translation of its contents revealed the recipe for an ancient beverage using mango juice, honey, and black pepper. What they didn’t realize was that creating the beverage had dire consequences. Stricken by fear after its compleation, the friends tried to contain the terrifying forces into this very bottle. Once opened, however, no one can say for sure if it can be conquered. Defend your soul or join us...

A cursory glance of my ratings will show that I am not the biggest fan or even rater of Mead, but this one is fantastic, with excellent hints of black pepper against a sweetness that is distinctly mango without being overbearing. I really love dried mango so this was perfectly up my alley and I wasn’t disappointed.

Fules (728) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 12, 2016
Hab nincs, gyönyörű mézszín. Illata mézes, gyümölcsös, borsos. Íze mézes, borsos, édeskés gyümölcs ízzel. A bors miatt kicsit hajaz a gyömbérre. Közepesen testes és szénsavas, picit érezni az alkoholt.

Rudzud (36) - Cherry Valley, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Picked up at Julio’s, shared with JLindros. Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear super pale. Aromas of huge mangoes, both fresh and gummy. Great peppercorns as well. Taste is similar to the nose, excellent mango flavour and light peppercorn, wish it was a bit more peppercorn forward. Loads upon loads of mango! Mouth is a bit thin.

gEUS (1713) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 13, 2016
bottle at home. Pours clear light golden, no head, but a champagne alike fine bubble carbonation. Pepper definitely present. Papaya and apricot, some mango as well. Light sweet body, like an Asti, with an imminent attack of the black pepper, which I wasn’t particularly found of... Taste is sweet white wine grapes, white pepper...
