4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a clear light ruby with no head. Almost like a Shirley Temple. Aroma is mostly apple and cherry with a hint of marshmallow fluff. Taste is also dominated by apple and cherry. Rye barrel comes out towards the end with some spice. Alcohol is well-masked. Smooth rich palate with a little carb. The rye barrel cuts the sweetness just enough. This is great.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a flight from notes. Deep red with no head. Strong, dark cherry aromas with some tannins. I didn’t get much barrel but it was smoother than Zombie Killer.
