First off, I will start by saing I am not a big fan of this style. Anyways, poured a lighter brown with a small off white head. Aroma was mainly honey, with light belgain spices. Flavor was similar, overly sweet, and just a weird mix of mead and beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from January 2011, pours dark purple, almost brown. No head or lacing really, just a thin ring of some clearish looking bubbles. Aroma is the same as when you open up a jam of grape jelly yo. Other notes of dark plum, honey, raisin and more grapes. Taste is heavy grape jam, assorted berry, honey, and juice. No heat present at all. Little kids would enjoy getting shitty on this liquid. Cheers.

12 oz. bottle shared at the Beer Download table at DLD 2013- thanks! Pours a cloudy amber-brown color. Heavy caramel, brown sugar, banana, and honey, but there’s a plastic note in the flavor that throws it off. Medium-bodied, with a sticky, chewy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Decent mead.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from trade with umich03jm. First mead ever, so this is a new one for me. Pours a medium brown, minimal head. Interesting, sweet aroma, almost get some grape and candy notes. The flavor is sweet but not really overdone, with some underlying flavor notes of ripe fruit that lingers into the finish. Interesting and enjoyable. Nice to break some new ground. Thanks, Jason!
