3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really good. Clear gold. The honey is really accentuated nicely. Somewhat hot. Drank with some rather hot curry I made....the curry was horrible, this mead made it better. Strong spice at the end.

Courtesy of Jan (fonefan), corked bottle
Blond color. Strong aroma of pipe tobacco, and nothing else; this can’t be interesting. It’s not even possible to get the sweetness: immediately there is a hot chili flavor (chili extract?), with a quite strong chili feeling, and some tobacco leaves.
No other flavor to talk about. Useless, worthless.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle from Randall’s. Pours a clear peach-gold color with no head or visible carbonation. The aroma is a clumsy mish-mash of chili and honey, without either coming through clearly; apple and grape fruits in there. The flavor is the same, but it works better because the honey and chili notes can be picked out and appreciated. Finishes with lingering chili. Medium-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel that starts cidery and finishes hot. Low carbonation. Weird mead.

Unpleasent mead with too much chili. Dark golden coloured and clear. No head. Aroma has some sweet notes, some chili too. Flavor is way too hot, hurts. Bad texture.
