4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle… This mead rocks!… Clear, light copper mead with great, centipede-like legwork. The bouquet is a decadent, candy-like marriage of caramel, coconut and vanilla. Full-bodied and oily with no carbonation. The flavor supplies loads of sweet banana, caramel, coconut and clean honey. Sugary, rich, coconut and raw honey finish. Awesome!

Nip sized bottle. Label labeled batch 021208. Poured a clear golden color with no head. Aromas of lots of coconut, some vanilla, and some caramel - but lots of coconut. Tastes of caramel (more than in the aromas), coconut, vanilla, and honey sweetness. Again, not a mead or coconut fan, but this one is pretty damn good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Poured a clear creamy caramel brown with no head whatsoever. Aroma was full of coconut with a bit of caramel and some alcohol. Kind of reminded me of sunscreen. Flavor was extremely sweet with caramel, coconut and honey. Way too sweet, even for a mead.

Bottle shared by Steve, thanks man. Pours a clear tan tinted body with nice legs. Reminds me right away of malibu, coconut rum. Sweet a bit of suntan lotion, coconut sweetness, vanilla sweetness, and a hint of honey. A nice mead.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2011 Small bottle shared by Kan. Thanks a ton!! Pours a ridiculous glowing amber pour, darker edged with touches of brown. A huge glow with touches of glow. No real head. Aromas are a ridiculously rich coconut essence, touches of sweet cream, with vanilla, coconut oil, and sweet honey mead. Sweet, huge coconut presence. Initial sweeter edged, huge coconut presence paired with a touch lighter honey, vanilla, wet oak. Touches of vanilla, but honey and coconut come back into play hard. Middle shows a touch of tartness, then strictly is big coconut. Cream, huge coconut fat, and the honey aids it. Kuhnhenn’s strength is pumping huge flavor into highly flavorful beveraged. Great beverage, highly flavorful. Albeit, I’m not a huge coconut fan. This is interesting, but falls a bit south for me. Still, I liked it much more than I thought I would.

Bottle purchased at Kuhnhenn. Clear amber with no head and no legs. Aroma of coconut, caramel and honey. Coconunt and honey flavor before a semi-sweet caramel finish. Not bad, but I expected it to be sweeter and more flavorful.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Small ass 6oz botle via trade. Poured a nice looking syrupy brownish amber with no head. Aroma is great, loads of toasted coconut over top caramel topped green apples along with some syrup notes. Body is probably about as good as a mead can be, medium and syrupy with a faint hint of carbonation even though there is none, slight heat from the 16%. Flavor is like the aroma with the caramel coming in first followed by rasoted coconut and toast along with some lime and tropical fruits. Really interesting and great stuff.
