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 haven’t 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.

hotstuff (4353) - 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 winter’s night. Overall, it was nicely done for the style and one of the better Meads that I have rated.

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.

Ughsmash (7224) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2008
750mL bottle. Poured bright medium orange.. flat with long, lovely legs. The aroma picked up bright, sweeter honey with thick floral accents.. the alcohol presence singed the nose hairs a bit, but this was very well-balanced. Prickly, warm alcohol and hibiscus hit the tip of the tongue with thick honey and dry, almost stale herbal notes across the middle.. dry, spicy finish with lots of warmth. Thicker-bodied and spicy on the palate.. a bit too strong in a couple places.. a touch stale at times as well. Overall a very enjoyable mead.

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.
