COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our collaboration with B. Nektar Meadery. Ghost Stories is a Braggot (fermented from both barley and from honey) that was brewed with lager yeast, making it a truly unique experience. The honey used for the mead portion is Meadowfoam, which is most notable for its huge marshmallow flavors. We also added some chocolate, coconut, Chinese black smoked tea, and a touch of white oak as well.

This one is all over the place but very well centered. Roasted black pecan pour with thin head. Aromas of roasted marshmallow homey and ginger. Flavor of cocoa, honey smoke, with cocoa and oak finish. Medium palate with sugary coating left on the lips after sipping.

Bomber - dark brown pour with thin off white head. Herbal nose with cinnamon and chocolate. Taste has layers with most of them a little off putting. Lots of chocolate but honey and marshmallow is not noticeable. Meh.

Bottle shared at the Foothills Sexual Chocolate pre-release party. Pours a dark chocolate brown. Nice slick body. Some coconut milk sweetness balances with silky dark chocolate. Slight char flavor at the end. All in all really enjoyable.

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
750 mL bottle shared by Paul T, served cool in a tulip glass. Deep brown black with a small light mocha head. Very deep dark, tangy, vinous, black pepper, a little chocolate and vanilla, aggressive, strong oak, quite a bit of alcohol. Medium+ body with relaxed effervescence. Huge and dark, peppery, lots of oak and alcohol, a little touch of chocolate and vanilla, very big and dark; off-dry with surprisingly gentle bitterness and a fairly long, dark, alcoholic finish.

Kristophe (29) - SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle at tasting, thanks Balder. Pours murky very dark brown, with a small head. Aroma has a lot of herbal notes along with chocolate and honey. Taste is pretty much the same. Medium carbonation. A bit disappointed.
