3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle at Big Beers. Really kinda odd. Aroma reminded me of wool a little. Flavor was spicy with a hint of vanilla. Not my fave.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours clear pale golden with no head worth mentioning. Smell is sweet and surprisingly enough slightly smoky with honey, vanilla, cinnamon, salami, alcohol, sweet rye bread, dried flovers and hints of aspartame. Taste is sweet with crackers, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, alcohol, charred wood and floral perfume. Mouthfeel is sticky sweet, clogging, boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and very tiny bitter with honey, vanilla, cinnamon, charred wood, butterscotch hard candy and sweet bread. very much over the top. Almost crippling sweet with a strange combination of salami and very sweet vanilla candies.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very pale yellow color with no carbonation. Aromas of home, cinnamon, vanilla and a hint of wood. Very sweet honey, vanilla and cinnamon flavors. A little oak comes through. I can’t believe the is 14% abv, I can hardly taste the alcohol. Good stuff.

a true winner, the aroma of both vanilla and cinnamon is immaculate. the flavor go all the way with the flavor of alcohol and honey. look and feel is a tad thin but it a minor point for this otherwise incredible mead

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at GTMW 2010 - I can’t say I’m a mead expert, but this was absolutely fantastic. Poured a straw yellow color with no head. Sweet vanilla and light cinnamon dominate the nose, with lots of honey. Not picking up the oak, but it is waaaay smooth. Taste is roughly the same, sweet with the same nicely balanced vanilla and cinnamon decadence. Smooth and slick in the mouth, I would much rather sip this than a cocktail. Phenomenal.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle generously shared by Sparky. Light straw colored pourwith light aromas of cinnamon sticks, vanilla bean, white grape juice,, and honey. The aroma fills the nostrils more as it warms. Flavor is light and balanced. Notes of cinnamon spice and vanilla sweetness are present but not at all aggressive. On the lighter side of syrupy...pretty refreshing, actually...given the style.
