Pours a still, rich gold. The aroma is full of honey, but the flavor comes across a bit hot. At first I thought this was from the alcohol, which is big, but it may be from the ginger after all. Thick with a lingering spicy burn from the ginger.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 Very interesting. Initially, the aroma brings to mind a silver tequila of all things. With a bit of snobbery and swirling, some flowers and spices, yes ginger, reveal themselves. Nice honey sweetness on the finish. A bit to alcoholic for my liking, but not bad overall.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours yellow / gold with no head. the aroma has honey, lots of alcohol warmth, ginger and lightly floral. Full body with a good bit of velvety sweetness. The taste starts with honey and a thickness that has a different feel from the barley malt beverages I’m used to, but it is very nice. The finish has slick sweetness and a clean ginger taste. The alcohol is present, but for 19% it is very well masked and this is a pleasant beverage to sip on. This is my first mean and it is a winner. I look forward to trying others.

Bottle, Københavnske Øldage 2006. Golden and clear. Really strong alcohol aroma. Sweet honey aromas. Spices are noticeable, but hard to detect/identify. Unfortunately it is way to high in alcohol content and aroma to be appreciated.

Bottle at Københavnske Øldage 2006. My first mead. Pours a clear dark yellow, no head. Very sweet and slightly fruity. Strong aromas of alcohol. Mildly portlike. Fruity and warming alc finish. Not really a festival thing... more for a quiet evening in front of the fire place after a day of raping and pillaging.
