4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Wow !! What an amazing combination of flavors. Cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, bananas, and just the right amount of bourbon presence. Good mouthfeel. Sweet as to be expected, but not cloying in any way. Really does taste like you had some great banana French toast with a touch of bourbon-infused maple syrup. Incredible mead !

Auction! Absolutely amazing.
It is so complex yet blended to perfection. I definetly smell and taste, honey, vanilla, nutmeg bananas, candy, bread and caramel. An there is so much more going on. I tip my hat to the brewers.

This one poured a still golden yellow with just very slight bubbles from the poured. Aroma was boom in your face of honey, booze, maple and bananas. Flavor was sticky sweet but not over the top, light vanilla cake batter, honey, dough, bananas, maple, and butter but not in a diacetyl way. Definitely my favorite mead, but a bit disappointing given some of the descriptions i’ve read before.
