UPDATED: APR 19, 2012 Huge thanks to Vigo and Jale for picking these up for me and bringing them to DLD. A: Pours a nice light honey yellow, very thick, almost syrup like. S: Aromas of honey laden bananas foster. Strong almond notes with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. T: Wonderful and sweet. Dessert in a bottle. Banana and cinnamon lead the way. Notes of almond and honey sweetness. Vanilla is there, a bit doughy, very much true to its name. M: Medium, still, sweet awesome. I love this thing. I am a bit sad that I just popped my last bottle.

Bottle labeled Bourbon Barrel BFTM. Pours a thick golden straw. Nose has honey, tropical fruits and faint notes of bourbon and oak. Delicious stuff. Lots of flowery honey, sweet fruits, maple, caramel, earthy spices and again just a hint of whiskey and wood. Thick, creamy body has a lasting finish of dry honey wine, bourbon and oak. Quite refreshing and easy to drink considering complexity. Should age quite well. Thanks Steve!

Bottle - Thanks Dave for this wonderful mead. Seriously it smells like banana french toast covered in a bourbon maple syrup and powder sugar. It tastes like it smells but even better with a little more bourbon. This is an amazing mead. Kuhnhenn, this is another awesome mead. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Extended cheers to Greg, Tpd975 for sharing this bottle. Just the though of this mead is phenomenal. thick honey coating all over the glass. huge cinnamon nose, vanilla and barrel along with banana, floral honey blossom. The rest is hugely enhanced by the experience of drinking this mead that is phenomenal. You could literally sit here for hours marveling at the nose of this beverage. Palate is sticky with nice honey presence, banana along with some caramel; honey sugar. Itís sweet, boozy, loaded with barrel greatness, definitely get a lot of honey, lots of cinnamon and vanilla. Not sure what they use, either extract or not but I could spend hours sipping on a glass.

Simply amazing. Had this at kuhnhenn during st pattys day. I read the reviews before I had it and I didnít understand why people were saying this mead smelled like a stripper but now I understand. The smell is just plain amazing, the palate is thick like ten fidy. The name says it all, Iíd rather drink this than eat banana French toast, its as if someone poured bourbon flavored syrup on your French toast. Best mead ever.

BottleÖRBSG 2010Ö This mead rocks!Ö Clear golden mead with fantastic, centipede-like legs. I cannot put into words how good this smells, but itís one of the best smelling things ever. I would like to have a Yankee Candle that smells like this. Well, I guess Iíll give it a shot: Iím picking up a medley of Amaretto, deep fried banana/cinnamon bread, vanilla, pralines and all other things rich, decadent and sweet. Full-bodied and oily with no carbonation. The alcohol is nearly transparent - doesnít taste like itís over 7% ABV. The flavor is nearly as pleasurable as the aroma Ė buttery fried toast, vanilla and a wealth of hearty, dark, tropical blossoms honey. The finish is simply a continuation and then slow fade of the plush, luxuriant flavor. World class mead!
