Pale yellow pour with no head. The aroma is immense vanilla, cinnamon, french toast, ripe banana and floral clover honey. The flavor follows through from the aroma but is slightly less sweet than the aroma with pronounced clover, wildflowers and fresh banana. The body is sticky and smooth with a solid alcohol warming on the finish.
Earlier Rating: 3/27/2010 Total Score: 4.4
Clear, yellow-gold color, no head, and some legs after swirling. Intense, ripe banana aroma with hints of cinnamon, honey, pecans, toasty caramel, vanilla extract, and a hint of bourbon on the finish. Then flavor is bourbon, fusel alcohol, and vanilla upfront with a wave of banana, toasted pecans, and cinnamon in the middle and finishing wit some clover honey and light fruit. Sticky viscous body with an alcohol kick.

Thanks to IBrew2or3 for this one. Cheers, Dave!! Pours a clear yellow-gold with no head- it’s a mead. Nose is bourbon, powdered sugar, huge vanilla, mild booze, and some light earthy honey. Flavor is a tremendous blend of sugar, some cinnamon, some light sugar, and some bourbon and vanilla. Light in body, mildly boozy, and really cool.

Damico (2744) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2013
Pours clear deep golden with no head. The aroma is perfect, big sweet hazelnuts that smell like maraschino cherries and French Toast with maples syrup, just as intended and ridiculous! The flavor starts out sweet with honey at first, but then gets huge with influence of the bourbon, not spicy or vanilla, but smooth sweet liqueur. The bananas are lightly in the background, but overall the flavors are blended so well.

Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day, big fucking thanks to Travis for sharing this with Armin, Stephen, and I. Pour a golden appearance with a bit of a bubbly white head. Aroma is out of this fucking world- bananas, nuts, toffee, honey, and caramel. Fairly nutty, somewhat herbal, moderate bourbon, toffee/caramel flavor with a nice banana presence. Man, I really would love to try this again. Fucken a bro.

Bottle shared by my good bud Ed Roberts, thanks bud! Never really been a mead type of guy but this was incredible. Nice spicy cinnamon aroma with no real heat to speak of. Definitely taste very similar to french toast. I’ll be on the look out for more of these for sure

Tasted on 8/31/13 from a capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to JR for bringing this one. Pours clear pale yellow with no head, much like a white wine. The nose is absolutely fantastic. It smells just like fresh-off-the-griddle french toast with plenty of cinnamon and all of the beautiful caramel and maple bourbon in the background. There is a bit of heat on the nose and just a touch of hazelnut coming through. On the palate, it is almost the same with just the right amount of sweetness, a ton of french toast and the bourbon nuttiness on the back of the palate. The body is full with no carbonation and a long finish featuring the bourbon and hazelnut.
