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.

Pours dark black with a nice head. Aroma is sweet honey, chocolate and smoke. Ah ghost stories by the campfire. The flavor is a bit too smokey, think they went a bit heavy on the tea. Honey and chocolate are there along with marshmallow but they are hard to pick out over the smoke. Overall not bad.

probstblueribbon (3182) - 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.

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.
