Bottle from Cervezorama 2.0, Madrid
Measured Final Gravity: 1014

Hazy dark blond color. The aroma of cinnamon is delicate and inviting, there is a light touch of apples, wax/candles, soap, lemon and sage; multifaceted. Good liquor mouthfeel, fairly sweet, not syrupy, with pungent alcohol and spicy kick (chili pepper? Fresh ginger juice?); the spicy flavor is evident, but the mix is quite well blended together; the soapy character doesn’t help though; the final is moderately hot, and with drier impression.
Undoubtedly a good spice exercise, but the mead merely becomes a vessel with no name, and therefore such a metheglin is no longer mead.

Kristophe (29) - SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle at Mikkeller & Friends. Clear golden, no head. Huge amounts of cinnamon on the nose, some honey and vanilla are also there but mostly cinnamon. Smells like a freshly baked apple cake. Mouthfeel is oily and taste is sweet with loads of cinnamon. A little flowery, almost tart-ish, and some honey but mostly cinnamon here as well. Kinda one dimensional but very enjoyable.

MeadMe (1323) - Riverview, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Pours nice and golden. Aromas are a perfect blend of sweet and spicy. Like those expensive candles that my wife likes to burn. Flavor is a mixed bag of sweet and spicy as well. Wonderful honey like candy sweetness up front then the spice powers through. Waves of cinnamon and clove. Light mint with some almost floral notes. There is a lot going on here when it. Comes to tastes. Body is medium and its smooth. A bit under the weather today but let me say this is what they doctor ordered. Gonna warm the second half of the bottle.

deyholla (6862) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with no head whatsoever. Aroma has a lot of strong spice and honey notes that are mainly sweet with a touch of dryness. Flavor starts full of spice that lasts throughout and a honey note that begins sweet and finishes slightly dry.

PhillyCraft (3395) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle shared with some friends at a tasting. Pours a pale gold with watery loose bubbles and barely any head, Notes were tons of amazing spice, wood, cinnamon stick, apple, crust, honey, and cloves. So velvety in texture and not boozy at all for 15 percent. Really a great mead that took me by surprise having so many spices in it. Cheers.
