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.

Bottle for Bruisin’ Ales. Pours light and golden. Notes of cinnamon on the nose. The vanilla becomes more prominent as it warms. Lots of sugar on the tongue. Finishes with a bit of tartness. Solid.

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

Pours clear and yellow, no carbonation, like most meads. Aroma is nice cinnamon, hint of vanilla, sweet honey back. Taste follows, slightly medicinal, good burn. Meh.

On tap at the GTMW 2011. Pours a yellowish tinted clear color with no head presence. Aroma is nice with vanilla, cinnamon, honey and booze. Taste is very sweet with honey, vanilla, cinnamon, fruit and alcohol. Very tasty and a nice change of pace on a day filled with massive IBUs and barrel aged goodies.

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 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.

750 ml bottle shared with my wife. Pours a clear straw gold with no head. This is a still mead. Pleasant aroma of mild honey, cinnamon, and vanilla. The flavor begins with very sweet but mild honey. The cinnamon and vanilla then both join in, with the vanilla a stronger attribute than the cinnamon. There is some milk chocolate in the aftertaste along with some mild heat which I think is more from the cinnamon than from the alcohol . Fairly smooth and silky mouthfeel, especially for a 14% abv. As an aside, my wife, who loves cinnamon, thoroughly enjoyed this mead and I am sure would have rated this considerably higher. I should have bought another bottle! ;)

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.

From the bottle at Plainfield MWBF. Pours a slightly yellowed pale color. Still. Nose is subtly cinnamon & vanilla and wildflower floral notes. Moderate sweetness. On taste, it is very well balanced, oily mouthfeel. Some soft woody cinnamon that accentuates quite well. Some pleasant vanilla comes through as well and surprising is not over the top given the semi-sweet nature of the mead overall. Quite a nice metheglin.
