This bottled brew from Patrick767 at a rating party poured a head of clear colored bubbles that were quickly disappearing and left behind a uncarbonated golden brown colored body. The aroma was sweet and nasaly tingly. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting vinous aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of crisp dark honey and was dry. Delicious and one I would certainly have again.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber tinted towards rose with no head. This is a still mead. Hibiscus is the strongest component to the aroma along with honey, ginger and some spice. The flavor is very sweet honey with hibiscus as the two dominant characteristics with ginger and some spice also present. Finishes with some significant heat. I know there is no ginger in this mead, but the heat tastes more like it comes from ginger than from alcohol. Definitely a slow sipper.

A metheglin mead, brewed with hibiscus and hops. Pours a very surprising dark amber color. No head, still mead. Aroma is extremely floral, from both the hibiscus and the honey. Apart from the floral character, honey is also very big in the aroma. Alcohol is masked in the aroma. Taste is again very floral, but this time the alcohol comes through pretty strong, yet pleasant. Honey and hibiscus are very apparent, hops serve only as a balancing character. After taste is well balanced between malt, alcohol and floral characters. Warming all the way down. Very nice!

Thanks to gnoff for the sample! Clear amber without head. Strong honey aroma with notes of cheap perfume. Medium bodied and smooth. Too sweet.

BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Bottle post PP SAF: Deep golden hue with ruby glow, oily legs. The aroma has notes of honey, bread, current, hibiscus, herbal hops, juniper, anise, phenolic and vinous. The flavor profile displays a HUGE SWEETNESS, honey forward with a strong spicy undertone laced with herbs and fruit. The mouth feel is very warming as one would guess, very aggressive alcohol against the sticky character. Honestly this is just TOO MUCH of everything, sip it very slowly.

Aaagh! My bottle fell over and developed a hairline fracture, causing it to slowly seep all over my fridge insides. No good! Before this sweet nectar of life drained away, I did get some serious quaffing in, and I can joyfully report that it is truly a mead to be reckoned with. A worthy competitor to Apis (the King of Meads!).

Slightly hazy, burnt orange amber color with rose highlights. Still body with a nice sheen. Looks a little thin for a mead. Despite the light body, sticky legs still coat the glass well. The aroma is unique, showing a myriad of floral and herbal notes, including strong rose, hibiscus, and some mild juniper. Honey also plays a huge role on the nose, and theres actually a light smokiness in there as well. The flavor has great contrasts, encompassing both sweet honey and floral flavors with hot spices and alcohol. Every bit f the 19% ABV is detectable. Short, hot finish. Medium syrupy body that is light for a mead. Unique and definitely worth a try, but not outstanding.
