Bottle…RBSG 2010This mead rocks!… Clear golden mead with fantastic, centipede-like legs. I cannot put into words how good this smells, but it’s one of the best smelling things ever. I would like to have a Yankee Candle that smells like this. Well, I guess I’ll give it a shot: I’m 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 - doesn’t taste like it’s over 7% ABV. The flavor is nearly as pleasurable as the aroma – 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!

This is the best mead ever created. Taste, smell, and mouthfeel are top notch. Bananas, French toast, syrup, vanilla, honey. Absolutely stunning in every way. This mead is top notch. Top notch. Smooth bourbon flavor too. Wish it was seasonal or year round instead of randomly produced. Thanks Adam.

Holy schnikeys. A massive thanks to Mark for bringing this. Aroma = just what it says on the bottle. Tons of bourbon and, yes, french toast. I don’t know how they did this but it is out of this world. Vanilla, bourbon, light banana aroma with that french toast follow up. Pour is yellow with some bubbles. You know, it’s a mead. Flavor is spot on. Bourbon, vanilla, banana, cinnamon, some french toast, and not boozey for that 16%. This is incredible.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 Bottle shared by Alan with Bill, Frank and Alan. Pours a clearish gold with no lacing. Aroma is egg badder french toast, cinnamon, banana, maple syrup, earthy honey. Flavor is cinnamon toast crunch, buttery wood, lemons, banana bread, grapefruit rind, honey and brown sugar. So awesome as it warmed. Wow.

Smell is intense french toast. No carbonation with very light bit of alcohol warmth and taste that lingers. Taste is french toast, almonds and other assorted nuts, and a slight bit of banana.

375 ml bottle at home. Pours clear light golden, no head, no carbo. The nose is an utter and unique bouquet making one think of some sturdy European sweet dishes: apfelstrudel, speculoos and ’een goei snee kramiek me een dikke plak goeie boereboter deroep’ aka raisin bread with the thickest of butters. Two aromas lead the dance: cinnamon and thick honey, supported by a buttery flowery scent, a tad of alccohol in the nose, the wine touch makes one think of glühwein as well (the reference is interesting, but glühwein is crap), etc. One of the most beautiful bouquets ever found in a mead (although I haven’t tasted a lot of m yet). Medium body, high sweetness, high on the ethanol side as well makes one think of a warm winter warmer. Taste is pear, white wine, apricots and cinnamon let it be in smaller doses than in the nose. Magnificent!

From a bottle. To call this anything short of mindblowing would be a sin. I’ve never smelled anything so rich and perfectly crafted. Perhaps it seems an easy out as both a brewer and a drinker to make and drink dessert stuff like this, but the execution here is so dead on that proper respect must be paid. I’d heard this was good, but it was impossible to be prepared for the utter richness that you will find in the aroma of this mead. A full on blast of maple, macadamia nut, amaretto, and tons of marzipan and maraschino are pure delight, like burying your nose in the richest, most lovely sweet breakfast. The flavor is more subtle, refined, actually possessing solid mead notes to go along with the sweetness and marzipan. Cinnamon and sugar galore. This is a masterpiece.

Huge thanks to daknole!! Bottle pours gold. Aroma is sweet with banana bread, honey, caramel, and roasted pecans. This is one of THE most unique things I have ever smelled. Flavor doesn’t quite live up to the smell but they definately named this one appropriately. Im glad I had the opportunity to taste this.
