Bottle - This is boozy one. Pours opaque pinkish/yellow. Nose is sweet, honey, slight cherry, oaky, rye, apples. Taste is sweet honey, apples, and light cherry finish. A good amount of alcohol here. It would be hard to drink a lot of this one at 12% abv, because it tastes like a 20%.

500 ml bottle. Can’t remember where I bought it. Been meaning to open this one for a while. Pours a clear golden rose color with some legs on the sides and a tiny off-white ring around the edge. The aroma has a nice cherry wine thing going on, with lighter honey, plenty of florals, and some whiskey heat that adds warmth to the nostrils late. Flavor of cherries, honey, sweet white wine, vanilla, oak, and tannins. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, vinous mouthfeel. Man, this one grew on me. I kept bumping up my score.

10oz draft @ The Stein & Vine, Brandon. At 20$ a glass I had high hopes for this one, well, the zombies kidna took me by surprise. Couleur orangée, léger huileux au verre. Arôme offre une version plus fruitée que la Zombie Killer. La cerise y est bien dominante avec un effet whisky restant assez en retrait. Palais est doux, mielleux, douceur de cerise accompagne le tout. Le palais reste cependant légèrement actif au niveau effervescence. On retrouve également un profil modérément âcre de la cerise et cette impression de jus de de cerise qui s’accentue en fin de bouche. On retrouve, grâce aux 12%, un palais plus épais et profitant plus du miel. Reste correcte, mais j’attendais nettement mieux de ce traitement en barrique surtout par rapport au prix demandé.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a clear orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong apple juice, wine, honey. Thin mouth, jammy apple, honey, light booze, very good.

8/13 bottle from FlandersNed-thanks, Steve. ~2 years old now. Nice rose color, light carbonation. Fruity nose of apple, cherry, perfumy honey. Some rustic cherry flesh, sweet apple and honey, boozy. Good but found it disjointed with some off character at some points. Prefered the regular.

500 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled sometime in 2014, bottle date code of 274 07 14. Clear golden orange. Aromas of whiskey, apples, cinnamon and spices, some booze. Tastes of apples, light cherries, whiskey, honey, vanilla, spices. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Semi-syrupy mouthfeel. Pretty delicious.

Powerful stuff. Like zombie killer kicked up a notch. If you taste hard you can get a small hint of rye on the finish...... It’s pretty great.

Very good but strong mead. Great aroma and it tastes like the original zombie killer but with a bit more whiskey tinge to it.

tchaos (336) - Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours Reddish orange with mild carbonation. Aroma is heavy cherry and rye. Taste lives us to the "imperial" status...more cherry, more honey, more heat. Insanely drinkable.
