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.

GTMW 2010. This was quite a delicious mead. Pours to a thin yellow plastic colored body. Super balanced cinnamon and vanilla with subtle honey. Sweet vanilla, oak, and cinnamon. Medium bodied but not boozy. A delightful concoction.

Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors.
It pours a still, light gold color with no head. It does show nice legs. The nose is rich with loads of vanilla and cinnamon, reminding me of cinnamon graham crackers in some ways. The taste leans to the sweet side with lots of the aforementioned spices. A touch of the oak comes through as well. Light to medium body on the tongue with a touch of warming alcohol. This one is a touch sweet for my taste but makes a nice after dinner aperitif.

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.

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.

Bottle. Clear pale golden mead with no head. Smoked sausage aroma. Spicy, cinnamon flavour, really a strange flavour.

madvike (3072) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2010
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.

Palidor19 (3051) - Brandon, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2010
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

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 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.
