2012 Colorado Mead Tasting at Armin’s house. Pours a clear, dark purple appearance with no head. Somewhat syrupy, jammy berry, somewhat thick aroma. Thick, somewhat boozy, light vanilla, big jammy blackberry, somewhat herbal flavor. A bit too rich for me but not bad.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2015 Light purple grape juice pour. Nose of faint berries and honey. Taste follows the nose. Berries are there with the honey a little bit back. Drier than I was expecting but still good.

Thin body. Very sweet taste. Wasn’t ready for that at first. Once I got used to the sweetness though, I really enjoyed it. Lots of honey flavor with plentiful cherry grape taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Tasted some time near the summer of 2012 from a corked bottle. Pours clear light ruby with no head. The nose is sweet and dominated by jammy vinous fruit, honey, and some alcoholic heat. The flavor is primarily sweet and jammy red wine with a nice hit of honey and heat. The body is full with some wine-like tannins and a long fruity berry finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Color is nice, very vivid red to purple blueberry hues. Nose is astringent, slightly boozy and a tough of grape and floral notes. Sweet taste, has a touch of cough syrup, I obviously am rated it without "adding soda water" which is how I drink mead. but it is a very concentrated fruit punch taste. not a fan.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Grape jelly nose, not terribly vinous, more like jelly. Clear maroon. Singular grape flavor. Alcohol evident, harsh mouthfeel. Ugh, I can’t believe I’m about to give B. Nektar a bad rating, but this a sweet, hot mess. Reminds me of MD 20/20. I’m so distraught.
