3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle at Sarmacja, Krakow. Huge pour for 8zl wow, served summer room temp. Beyond the strength, and the sweetness that is the initial impression, is tree bark. Remains super sweet. A hint of basil adds a little nuance but its by no means balanced. Sugary at first but as the palate attenuated (end of large glass) some complexity shows, apple and pears. Enjoyable, and a good starting point for what became a superlative session of Polish mead.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl, corked. A dark, copper colored beer, clear and flat. A bit heavy on heather and alcohol, but pleasant anyway. Raisins and of course honey too. It’s warming and full-bodied, slightly more heathery than I prefer, but far from bad. Caramel and dried fruits, both initially and in the end. Lasting warming finish. A bit too intense, but really tasteful anyway. 110820
