HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle. Clear, pale, golden pour. I didn’t get much cinnamon in the nose but definitely honey, vanilla, and alcohol. Medium to full body with a smooth, slippery mouth feel. Rich, mellow honey flavor with a good dose of vanilla, cinnamon is much more present in the flavor but still light overall. Finishes sweet.

Tap. Golden with minimal head. Sweet honey aroma. Boozy, light sweetness. Vanilla and cinnamon are fairly subtle. A little hot for my tastes, but otherwise very good.

Sample at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2016. Pale yellow shade with zero head. Smells like honey or candlewax to me, with some vanilla lurking. Not as much cinnamon to be found. Decent enough mead.

tchaos (428) - New York, USA - MAR 20, 2015
750 bottle. Pours light, clear gold. Aroma of heavy cinnamon and honey. Taste is very sweet honey, with vanilla and spice. Best as a dessert mead paired with food -- it’s sweet enough to carry many desserts.

Smells of dirty jock strap and cinnamon. Tastes like way too much cinnamon mixed with sugar and syrup.
