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.

Awesome mead right here. Tropical fruits and a bit of spice and not too much booze.

You can definitely get a kick from the pepper and the mango is a good balance. Not overly fruity for a mead.

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Süßlicher Antrunk, milde Honignoten, in dem hintergründig leichte Pfeffernoten erkennbar sind. Stärker ist aber die konstante Süße, süffig, Noten vom Apfel. Gut! 7/11/9/10/11/9

2014.08.08 - B. Nektar Necromangocon - from bottle. Not going to do a breakdown review but does what it says on the bottle. It’s mango-y and pepper-y. It’s an interesting flavor combo and works pretty well. A tad too heavy on the pepper for my palate but not bad.

NeoHippie2 (996) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Pale golden pour. Aromas of mango, honey. And a touch of white pepper. Flavor is mango and honey all the way. Finish is sweet with just a pinch of white pepper. Slight pepper spice lingers on the palate after you take a sip. Very interesting. Another solid mead from B. Nektar.
