Dark red purple pour no head. Lots of port wine aroma hint of fruit cherry. Nice rich wine throughout with nice fruit notes coming through. Sweet at first sip but simmers down the more you drink. Light body and light carbonation. So easy to drink. Hint of alcohol burn.

6oz nip bottle. Thanks to mike I believe... Pours a black cherry, dark plum hued consistency, leggy and still. Port-like while leaving a touc of transparency... Aroma of sweetened black cherry with an accomodating sweet pure honey factor involved. A deeper and dark berriness also plays into the equation. Solid and inviting... Smooth with accentuations focused on the black cherry and smooth honey notes. Cherry skins peak through for a shirt duration becomes red grapey for an instant before the smooth semi-boozy nature of the mead concludes the experience. Medium bodied overall, perhaps just shy of with penetrating deep flavors from the port and mead blend. Enjoyed this one quite a bit.
