4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
17 July 3014, bottle. Ruby, clear, no bubbles. Nose is amazing! Meaty, sweet, bourbon, raisins, alcohol. Med body, faintly fizzy, syrupy. It's like raisin syrup or raisin candy. Wow! Alcohol is fairly noticeable bit not harsh or overpowering. Really sweet and sugary. Wow!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle shared. Pours a clear dark caramel color with zero head. The aroma and flavor have honey, alcohol, some of the doppelbock character, cherry, vanilla, slight woody quality. I like their more traditional meads bettter but this was decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-11-18. Lovely crisp dark brown body, headless. 3+ Sweet aroma, honey, modest alcohol, muted sweet malt/caramel like notes but that is not quite it. Flavour is quite sweet, notes of syrupy honey, light sweet grainy touches in the aroma and flavour but pleasantly so. Muted tea like tannins in the finish. Alcohol is shockingly mild considering the strength. Enjoyable, sweet and fairly simple. Smooth not quite syrupy average plus to medium bodied palate. Bottle, note on cap says 12/2011 via trade with flandersned

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle via trade with punkrkr27! Dark mahogany pour with a few bubbles an zero head. Similar dark fruit, prune and raisin as the lager but with the added sweetness of honey. Abviously, not a lot of carbonation. Nothing distinct or anything to ignite the palate. Needs a bit to make this exciting. Not there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle generously shared by biggsbowler. Cinnamon nose. Clear light brown pour with no head. Lots of cinnamon, perhaps Bride of Cinnamonster is the base mead, with muted honey notes. I didn’t get much in the way of anything other than the mead characteristics.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear brown reddish looking. Tobacco, honey on the nose and sweet alcohol. Taste is a tobacco, honey flavor with a lingering bitterness. Overall the mead makes a terrible beer mediocre.
