Bottle, poured into Duvel glass. Absolutely no head. Aroma is thick honey, floral hops, and alcohol. Taste is sweet, but not cloying, with slight notes of hibiscus and hops, and a heavy alcohol burn. As for mouth feel, it is a little thick for y liking, but overall still a very excellent mead.

Skinnyviking (7765) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2015
Mead tasting at Taphouse. Ceramic bottle. Mild sweet herbal honey aroma. Flavor a bit more spicy than herbal because of the hibiscus. The sweetness of they honey and the high alcohol percentage is however still present. Long finish.

HulkingMarine (1) - Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2015 does not count
This is delicious; unlike anything I have tasted. Kicks you in the face with floral sweetness and a full bodied texture, and has an after taste of honey. Drank the bottle in about 15 minutes and did have a nice buzz.

Smells like carpet cleaner. Taste is not much better. Heavy floral and spice taste with a bit of honey. Has a nasty alcohol bite. Nasty as hell.

Thick syrupy floral sweetness. Almost like port wine. Viking vampires give it two horns up.

If blood would taste like that Id easily be addicted I guess. This one is so special, so lambic-style and fruity - I wondered it was a mead. A touch of honey, but the rest is fresh fruits, some fermentation and a deep body with a bit of grain in the back. Wonderful.

McTapps (5716) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2014
Sample by courtesy of Meilby - thank you, Kenni! The mead has got a hazy light brown colour with a smooth body. Aroma of honey and herbs. Taste of herbal and characterful honey, sage, green hops and flowers. Herbal finish with an intense honey aftertaste. Smooth to drink, enjoyed it.
