750 ml. bottle,thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours an old gold to amber clear. Aroma is honey, spice, coffee. The taste is honey mead with coffee, I do taste the coffee, interesting. As far as meads go this is good, never had a coffee one before, and it was decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml corked bottle. Pours still copper. Aroma is vinegar, coffee and that’s about it. Taste is a little rotten; tastes a little like black coffee spiked with fermented honey; raisins come out as it warms. Mouthfeel is syrupy like any mead should be. I’ve had a lot better, that is for certain.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Notes from 6/12. 5oz sampler glass from Sunset Grill.
Clear, golden amber color. Slightly dull though.
Scent of smokey coffee, tobacco, & earthy honey sweetness. The honey was a bit overshadowed, now that I think about it.
Taste is mild citric honey & brown sugar. Maybe something nutty. Coffee flavor is second runnings, bland coffee. Not bitter or burnt thankfully, but boring, & the honey isn’t bold enough to try & make up for it. Slightly sappy texture initially, turning very thin. No crazy off flavors & mellow alcohol keep it tolerable.
Coffee meads do seem to work, but not this one.

Golden color. Some aroma of coffee and honey, indeed weird; it smells like an ashtray. Very weird flavor too, honey and coffee, ashy.

Not good. Brown coloured and clear. Has no head. Has a sharp aroma, bad. Sweet flavor, perhaps some notes of coffee. Some dry notes too. Odd sweetness. Astringent too.
