Bottle courtesy of Vinny. Thanks for this one. Pours a deep, hazy red body with thin bubbles, no head or lacing. Aroma is sweet, tart cherry pie. Fantastic. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of cherry pie, cinnamon, crust, light oak, bourbon, and light apples. This is one of the best meads Iíve had the pleasure of drinking.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
6.3 oz. bottle, pours a clear ruby red - no head. Aroma of lush treacly honey, light bourbon, moderate cherry presence and mild booze. Flavour brings out thick treacly honey, moderate presence of the bourbon barrels, and well-worked in booze. The cherries arenít really detectable, perhaps because of thick syrupy honey presence and bourbon barrels. Excellent stuff - one of the best meads Iíve had.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Little bottle pours clear rosy copper with some legginess along the inside of the glass. The aroma offers up smooth sweetness, some boozy heat, berry fruitiness and then a mild level of chili pepper meat. The taste is similar with sweet honey goodness followed by rich berry notes and then a touch of chili pepper meat. This is good stuff as it is smooth and yummy and rolling from honey sweetness to berry richness to a bit of chili pepper. Great ride.

Bottles shared by ibrew2or3 at nbutler11ís bachelor party. Color remiscent of the meat of a plum, light pink/purple at its core. Aroma of Michigan tart cherries and Marascino syrup accompanied by vanilla, sweet honey, bourbon and oak. Also get a bite of cinnamon in the flavor. Really delicious but had it next to other outstanding examples in the same category. Yum!
