RBWG’10 another cheers to Cheeseman for opening this one.
pours almost burgundy, no head.
Aroma of nice sweet herbal and honey goodness.
Flavors, lots of herbal goodness adding a lingering fresh honey mesh of herbs and sweetness with a touch of wood barrel.
Golden delicious, thick, coating sweetness, enjoyable oak finish. Incredible how they incorporated the herbs in this one.
Have yet to be disappointed by anything Pasieka has made. This is some solid mead.

Bottle as shown ($36.99), but has red wax. Marked as bottled 07-11-2008. Pours with a clear, but deep brown body. My god, amazingly strong legs That appear to be glued on! Aroma is pungent across the room. Oak, maple, sarsaparilla, honey (duh), oak, brown sugar, light smoke, fennel, vanilla. Smells like an alcoholic and well crafted rootbeer. Wow, that’s rich. Oaky and extremely complex. Spice, molasses, brown sugar, fennel, eucalyptus, sarsaparilla, tannic. Syrupy and pleasingly thick with just a hint of alcoholic burn to remind you to not chug the rest of the bottle. Nice botanicals! A bit sticky, but lovely!

750, ceramic, corked and taped. probably half of it had evaporated, not sure the age. pours a crystal clear golden dark brown with no head or lace and ridiculous legs. smells very boozy, very vinous. between the legs, the smell, and the evap, this has to be overconcentrated. opens up to caramel, toffee, honey, wildflowers, potpourri, cinnamon, and creme brulee. sticky thick body. all the aromatics come back for the mid palate. long sticky caramel creme brulee finish.
