Sample at the tasting room. This Mead is a clear pale yellow-gold color with a minimal head and slippery legs. Aroma of licorice and honey. Medium to full body with flavors of anise, honey and herbs. The finish is sweet with a black licorice aftertaste. Not as good as Kuhnhenn’s Black Jelly Bean but still enjoyable.

Sample and glass at Brothers Drake on 10/8/12. Clear yellow pour with some legs. Aroma of black licorice, honey and booze. Honey flavor quickly moving to black licorice with an herbal finish. Probably the best one I tried this day.

Had freshly served at the source. It pours a metallic light yellow with some mild fizz. Smells and tastes of licorice (very prominent), cinnamon, candle wax, caramel and marshmallow. Honestly, this is very similar in regards to its flavors as a Tom’s of Maine toothpaste: herbaceous and undeniably spicy. And also for the mouthwash portion of this tooth-care reference, it creates that all-too-familiar brief numbing sensation from alcohol preservatives in oral hygiene products, like, you know, mouthwash. Nice mead.

Golden color and still. Nose of honey, must, and anise with alcohol heat. Honey sweetness with alcohol heat and some subtle licorice. Nice balance of sweetness and spice that reminds me of my grandma’s anise cookies.

Pour at Brothers Drake in a tulip. Pours a clear pale gold with no head or carbonation. Aroma of anise, pepper, poppy, fennel, herbs, and honey. Flavor of honey, anise, pepper- very sweet and smooth black licorice. Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Nice mead. So different and unique.
