Slightly hazy dark copper with a sweet dark nose of brown sugar, boozy cherry, and a dark honey tone. Flavor is dark and super sweet, a bit of cherry syrup, a kiss of maple, some wood, dark beeswax, and a boozy sweet brown sugar heat.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Tap sample at Neons. I thought about grabbing this for a few years whenever I saw it on the shelf at Wine and Cheese Place, but when I saw it available for a $4 small pour, I couldnt resist any longer. Pours a clear gold color with no head. Notes of honey, apple caramel, and a slate of herbs and spice - herbs, ginger, pepper, and cinnamon. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, chewy, spicy mouthfeel that finishes dry. Good mead. Hit the spot.

Beerman6686 (4348) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
This one poured a thick syrupy pinkish orange with no had. Aroma was of honey and red fruits and booze. Flavor was similar, very sweet, lots of alchohol and honey and dark fruit flavors. Ok.
