Bottle shared by Ace at fire pit night. Poured a clear dark honey orange-brown. Aroma of sweet honey, herbs, medicinal and a slight hint of wood. Flavor is big time alcohol, sweet honey, herbs, slightly vinous. Body is a bit harsh with loads of heat. This mead makes no attempt to hide the fact that its 19%.

kevinator (1850) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2016
First taste of mead and it was an interesting experience. Aroma was off-setting and smelled like sweet rubbing alcohol. Looked and felt like flat ginger ale. Very syrupy. Extremely sweet with honey (of course), ginger and alcohol. Not sure about it.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6641) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Sampled on draft this mead poured a dark brown color with no head and no lacing. The aroma was sweet, woody, smoky and medicinal. The flavor was sweet with a strong medicinal presence, band aid, tobacco, smoke, honey and vague alcohol. Long finish. Full body. The alcohol burn grows and overwhelms.

jsporrer (628) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Sample on tap @ Vintage Estates. Pours a light caramel honey color with no head. Aroma is sweet honey with a strong alcohol presence. Flavor is mostly super sweet honey with a big alcohol base. The honey is so sweet it masks the alcohol burn. Kind of like cough syrup but way too sweet. The too primary ingredients of honey and alcohol drown out any other flavors. Recommend for sipping only. It was actually difficult to finish the last swallow due to its over powering sweetness.

Sarlacc83 (1893) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle shared by my friend during the Super Bowl. Thanks! A: Dark gold, very little head. N: Honey, hibiscus, leather, phenol, some heather, and rose petal. T: Very sweet with a lot of the leather and flowers here. M: Medium body, very light carbonation. O: Tasty mead. Theres lots of flavor here, and I could see myself drinking quite a bit of this.

i dont know if its just the hibiscus thats different here than in the GI Dansk Mjod (also hopped) - it seems cleaner too - and I enjoyed it markedly better. Very floral honey aroma and flavor, which go together nicely. Still a sweet sipper, but the florals cut through that a bit.

Dogbrick (11335) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Sample at Winking Lizard. This Mead is a slightly hazy straw color with a minimal head and decent legs. Floral aroma with sweet honey and a bit of fruit. Full-bodied and sweet with flavors of honey, hibiscus and slight fruit hops. The finish is sweet and floral with a hibiscus and fruit aftertaste. Above average overall.

Though there is debate on proper drinking of mead, I find that it is best served heated to steaming and poured into a horn to be enjoyed momentarily. Chilled is good, but the aroma does not come to life until it is heated. Appearance is ideal, being called viking blod, it has a dark red hue. Taste is full of honey and hibiscus, and at warm temperature, the hop taste is missing, which is ideal for me.

May have gotten a bad bottle. It tasted sour and vinegary. It looked fine and was thick, like I like mead, but the taste I experienced was irredeemable.
