pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2012
6oz nip bottle. big thanks to steve for sending me such a great variety of kuhnhenn meads.... pours a perfectly still deep black cherry hued consistency, leggy as always with a little substance to its body... aroma has the forwardness of a dessert mead upfront with sweet velvety honey accents which take frontstage while the blackberry and raspberries follow suit soon thereafterwards. rich and sweet with enough fruitiness to keep the mixture inviting... flavors follow suit there nicely with a fairly nice balance between the sacharine nature of the honey and the sweet fruit blackberry forwardness of the port. prolongingly sweet, that much lasts well into the finish. hints of its strength is noticeable but not distracting. a peppery bite apparent at first but sees to fade late. warm re-surfaces late again.

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2012
Bottle... Clear, deep crimson mead with oodles of legwork. The bouquet is a simple offering of raspberry tartness and methanol. Full-bodied and silky. The flavor consists mostly of sweet honey, but there’s a nice dose of blackberry tanginess as well. Finishes sweet, tangy and tannic. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

jredmond (5341) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle sampled at Capone’s from a random bro. Pours a deep red/black wine color with no head. Aroma is berry, wine, jam, and some earth notes. Mouthfeel is like a thick wine that doesnt burn of alcohol - notes of blackberry, strawberry, blueberry jam, grapes, wine, honey, and a touch of vanilla. Thanks man, next one’s on me.

Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Thanks to blutt59 and thirdeye11 for going in with me on 16 Kuhnhenn meads. This was part of an epic 20 mead tasting. Pours a reddish-purple color. The aroma is full of blackberries and grapes. The flavor is more of the same. I get blackberries, honey, grapes and a little bit of oak. Medium mouthfeel. I wish I got more port character, but it is still enjoyable.

Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle courtesy the great mead trade of 2011. (thirdeye11, blutt59, mora2000.) Pours a dark cherry red color. Aroma is light and subtle. Some fruit and berries. Otherwise light. Flavor is dry and sweet honey. Some light fruit but not much.

Ibrew2or3 (6910) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Courtesy of dcschiller, thanks Dave. Pours clear plum juice with some nice legginess along the inside edge of the glass. The aroma is nice and sweet with sugary honey, hints of sweet and faintly of tart berry fruitiness. The taste is similar with smooth sweet honey and mild fruit notes. It seems to get a bit dry to midway but maintains the same honey berry notes right into the finish. I didn’t get much of the “port” presence though.
