3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mead tasting Taphouse. Ceramic bottle. No head. This mead was clear but a bit darker than the other mead we tasted. The combination of the honey and the herbs from the Riga Balsam is distinct both in aroma and flavor. It is however, still very sweet with heavy alcohol notes. Long finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from duty free shop @ Billund Airport. Dark copper-hued amber body. Aroma is intense alcohol and schnaps tones, herbs and hints of licorice, grass and burnt sugar. Taste is licorice, herbal schnaps notes, burning alcohol and hints of caramel and burnt sugar. Medium body, warming alcohol. A bit too boozy for me, but the herbal touch works well. Not too bad, but somehow the intensity of the alcohol doesn’t match the flavor profile in a mead-kinda way; instead, the whole thing becomes like an Unterberger light or something. Still, not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Hazy caramel-colored mead with centipede-like legwork. The aromatic standouts are honey, flowers and a trace of smoke. Medium to full-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel. The flavor is strictly of sweet honey and ethanol. Finishes much the same – sweet and boozy. Big-time thanks to Plovmand for providing this Danish rarity!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
clear dark amber, no head, but a few bubbles. Dark for a mead. Alcohol domnates the aroma, which also have some honey, and something that resembles wood. alc. is stinging in the nose. Too much alcohol has been added to this one.
Flavor is burning alcohol, honey, "ceramic bottle", flowers. Beneath the burning alc. there is some good stuff going on, but the alc. really distracts a lot.
