3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle shared by jckp64- thanks again, John! Pours a brownish-amber, mostly clear, with no head. Notes of raspberry, honey, cocoa nibs, earth, and wood. Some florals, too. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, coating mouthfeel. Interesting mead. I liked this.

I don’t really like meads all that much, but what Greg said about this one is certainly on point. Smells like raspberry truffles. Tastes a lot like raspberry truffles, although the chocolate isn’t anywhere near as beautiful or smooth as I would’ve hoped. Doesn’t rise to the greatness of KRE, but then what does?

Pours cola brown with ruby tones. Aromas of chocolate coated raspberries. Flavor is berry forward up front. Fresh sweet raspberries. A rush of chocolate then takes over. Milky sweet with hints of earth toward the finish. A wonderful wonderful beverage. The subtle carbonation makes drink ability very high.
