RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Very syrupy amber pour...clinging long on the sides of my snifter, as well as my sample glass! Very, very, very alcoholic nose, but some herbal, floral notes underneath that. Intensely sweet honey flavor, big (HUGE) alcohol, and lots of floral flavors. Massively sweet and alcoholic, with some moderate floral highlights. Good!

Bottle at 50F from Belmont Party. Poured clear dark copper color with good legs. Heavy dark honey and floral aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth rich texture. Medium to heavy dark honey flavor with a rich sweet alcohol finish of moderate to long duration. Pleasing rich flavor with a nice alcohol burn.

cheap (5153) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Poured at Vintag Estates, nice place. What can I say, this is wine. Darker pale yellow. Aroma is sweet. First taste is quite strong and winelike. Sweet mouthcoating wine, viscous to an extent. No carbonation, just flat wine. Of course honey prominent. A little meaty. Better than many beers. Finish is typical and the same as many sweet wines.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Lemonade aroma. Flavors of jasmine, lavender, sweet. Not what I expected, but tasty.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2009
My first mead ever so I dont know how it compares. Pours clear amber, sweet honey spice aroma and the taste is much the same. Enjoyable but not something I will go out of my way to try.
