Wow! Thanks, Blair! This was where the evening took a pretty dramatic downhill turn. Sweet, delicious but not too sweet. Not too dry. One of the better meads I’ve tried. This shit got me all kinds of fucked up. There. I said it. Lovely stuff.

Notes of alcohol and spice, but this has a lot more sweetness and even a floral touch that comes and goes. Hints of vanilla that leads into a full on honey experience. Very solid flavors, enjoyable.

Bottle. #2600 [Courtesy of yespr, thanks buddy] Lovely golden / honey colour. Oily lacework. Aroma of spice, honey, medicine, fruit, alcohol. Full bodied with a flat carbonation and thick alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavour. Lingering medicine and honey like finish.

Bottled. Thx gnoff. Amber. No head. Sweet and flowery aroma with elder-honey. Soft and smooth with some alco-feel.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAR 30, 2008
I could barely finish 2 ounces of this stuff. Lots of alcohol in the nose and the warmth on the way down is definitely noticeable. The way it goes down is much more like a cocktail than a beer. Flavour was unique as well. As I havent had all that many meads, I am just kind of blindly filling in numbers because I have to. I definitely need to understand the style better before I make a real call.

rlgk (11332) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2008 Sample from bottle, huge thanks to gnoff. Clear golden, no head at all. Strong honey aroma, alcohol, some floral notes. Sweet honey flavor, floral notes, oily palte. Alcohol is very well hidden, but you can still feel the strength.

hotstuff (4219) - Indiana, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle at patrick767 gathering. Transparent and a gold hue. Nose was honey, sweet, alcohol, and hoppy. Ditto for the flavor. Slightly tingly mouthfeel. Medium body. Pricey and worthy of a try. However, this is not a Mead that I could or would want to drink a lot of at any given time given the ABV. Definitely a sipper for sure and a "warm me up" on a cold, snowy winters night. Overall, it was nicely done for the style and one of the better Meads that I have rated.
