COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sweet mead made with whole cinnamon sticks, vanilla beans and aged on American oak. We slice each vanilla bean open by hand before adding to the mead to ensure maximum flavor extraction. Serve slightly chilled.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pours almost clear, has a slight yellow tint, legs are ok. Aroma is strong on the honey and vanilla, the cinnamon is there but a bit muted. Taste is fantastic, great vanilla flavor and honey hints with a nice cinnamon finish. Good mouthfeel, kinda sticky. Love this stuff.

weihenweizen (1686) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Refrigerated bottle poured into a snifter. Pours crystal clear, no head, no lacing, medium/light body, light syrupy texture, and aroma is colgne and vanilla. Taste is cinnamon, some vanilla, some honey, some colgne, some warming alcohol, and finishes alcohol. Be sure to serve warmer, a little too much alcohol, pretty good.

Plovmand (6349) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2012
It pours clear pale yellow. The aroma is mostly sweet vanilla and cinnamon mixed with honey with some oak notes in the background. The flavour has notes of fresh oak, vanilla and honey. Light citrus. The cinnamon is more profound in the finish. Quite sweet but great for a dessert.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
2012-05-04. Very pale yellow, headless body is white wine like. Weird aroma of cinnamon and vanilla, with a weird floral perfume undertone. Smells like a candle. Flavour is quite sweet, mild vanilla and sweet muted cinnamon. Lingering floral and vanilla. Smooth average plus palate is uncarbonated. Flavour is a bit rough. Might work better as an aperitif or similar? Not bad per se but a bit of an acquired taste I think and I found it hard to drink much of it. Bottle from Cloverleaf, Michigan

"...and I’m a HUGE fan of whatserface!"

Tasted at Atlantic City Beer fest. The flavor and the aroma are the same, sweet, vanilla, cough syrup. The finish is vanilla, candle wax. Decent. A little to cloying.

Bottle. Poured clear pale color with a small bubbly head and good legs. Moderate to heavy honey and vanilla wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth rich texture. Medium to heavy cinnamon honey flavor with a rich rich sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Pleasing rich spice flavor.

ReggieDunlap (3049) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Pours an extremely pale yellow with little to no white bubble head...very clear. Slight white winey aroma with notable honey. Vanilla and cinnamon are certainly present. Flavor is honey cinnamon with vanilla coming late. Mouthfeel is super light and the finish is definitely vanilla and cinnamon...can’t tell that its that strong.

OmegaX (1249) - Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Poured a very clear light, light yellow. Nose is exquisite with strong notes of cinnamon and vanilla. A smooth oaked undertone creeps through to the senses but is a minor note. This one was very tasty and smooth with, again, loads of vanilla and cinnamon. It tastes exactly like it smells and is labeled as and I couldn’t be happier. The sweetness is not overpowering or cloying at all and meld nicely with the vanilla/cinnamon combo. Alcohol is present but not the dominating flavor. It reminded me the flavor of vanilla milk left over from a bowl of cinnamon toast crunch. Awesome.
