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

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!).

served from the bottle at plan b, copenhagen. orange colour, much drier than their other meads, big whiff of peach schnapps, very warming

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2007
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.

750 ml bottle 10/11/07. Pours a bourbon color with no head and a nose over powered by honey with slight scent of pecan. No head at all considering style. Drank cold but probably be better if drank on the warmer end. Strong taste of church dessert wine. Alcohol not hidden very well, certainly present in every sip. My first mead but certainly not my last. Good overall beer

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 30, 2007
[sampled @ Sunset Grill] Big honey character, dark and sweet. Some slight spice character with some definite hop bitterness. Slightly acidic/astringent, Im not too sure. Very mild alcohol presence, Im surprised this is 19%. Really interesting stuff.

This is a still mead with a deep golden color and a big honey nose. This is a dark sugar confection with dark toffee, vanilla, honey, syrup, and some oak. You can feel the alcohol more than taste it. It leaves sticky thick streams against the side of the glass when swirled. Nice big mead. Thanks to patrick767 for the sample.
