3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper in color with no head. Very, very sweet nose. Plenty of sugar, dark fruit, alcohol, and honey. A light floral note, some oak, and a fair amount of oxidation to it, almost like a port. Quite heavy on the palate with tons of sugary sweetness. Brown sugar, honey, and dark fruit are the big flavors. A bit of red fruit/berry, some oxidation, maple syrup, and vanilla. I don’t really get any herbal qualities, though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Outstanding taste of a honey mead in a 100ml bottle. Cork was more difficult that the first two! Nice pour, quite still, dark imbued dark brown gold. Obvious honey but some other spice; hot cinnamon. Touch of menthol or bright green organic material, some kind of harsh hangonable part of the massive sugar superstructure of this giganticly huge sweet candy beer. Wow.
