This ruby elixir is a blend of several red wines and honey. It was fermented and aged in a used oak barrel. The flavor and aromas are a balance of red fruit, honey and oak.

This bottled brew from a rating party poured a head of no head bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a uncarbonated transparent brown colored body and a oily lacing. The nice aroma was malty and sweet. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a burning sweet aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of sweet and honey. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Red pour, no head. Flavors of red wine, grapes and honey. A real treat that I enjoyed more than some of the other Kuhn meads I have tried. I like the use of the wine.

Pour from a tiny bottle that kind of makes me feel like a giant. Ruby port red in color. Nose is mostly wine, red grapes with a hint of honey. Beautiful balance of red wine and honey sweetness. Would like to have this with some nice cheese and would like to have this in a 750 ml bomber!

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle… Pours clear and burnt orange with several, long, meaty, Monica Brant-like legs. The aromatic highlights are honey and Cabernet grapes and skins. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and zero carbonation. The flavor provides honey up front, then drying, warm methanol. Suggestions of cherry and blackberry fruitiness are noted as well. Sweet, vanilla, lightly acidic, and then dry finish. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

Bottle big thanks to Matt for the bottle! Pour is dark red, aroma brings notes of grape, sweet floral honey, some booze and vanilla, touch of sourness from the grapes. Taste is red grapes, hints of oak, nice sweet honey with some vanilla notes, goes into a dry slightly sweet finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear red-orange. Aroma of honey, alcohol, wood, and wine, sweet and rich. Taste is less rich than the nose, of honey, wood and ends with a lot of wine. Hides the alcohol really well. Lingering honey-wine notes. Great nose, nice taste.
