Spiced Mead, with cassia, clove & orange peel! A perfect winter apéritif, and amazing when heated up in a mug!

Pours clear golden color. Sweet honey aroma with cinnamon stick. Light aromas of orange and cloves. Silky mouthfeel. Sweet honey start with hints of orange and clove and dry fresh ground cinnamon. Towards finish some tartness and cinnamon. Aftertaste is clove honey and some lingering sticky sweetness. Really nice.

Tried this at the meadery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Big cinnamon, soft orange, lots of clove. Cinnamon, soft honey, sweet clove. Lovely amount of spices here, lingering and warm.

375ml bottle picked up at the meadery. Pours a clear light gold colored body with no head. Aroma is really nice with sweet honey and a warming spice mix. Cinnamon sticks, orange peel, and a light clove note. The spices aren’t overpowering, but are well integrated with the honey. Flavor is similar with a bit more orange peel sticking out. Sweet honey up front with a touch of clove mixed in with the orange peels. Cinnamon comes out a bit more in the end as this finishes clean, lightly spiced, and pleasantly sweet with a bit of an orange peel bitterness and a slight alcohol warmth before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light-medium, smooth body with no carbonation. Overall, a really enjoyable mead. Sweet, but not cloying while the spices provide a nice warmth to accompany the higher ABV. Big fan of this one.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 16, 2012
(375 ml from Bootleggers) Served lightly chilled. Pours clear light gold. Still. Nose of spice, honey sweetness and a large dose of Band-Aid/synthetic something. Mouthfeel smooth, light, only slightly sticky. Flavor of spice and the Band-Aid, which eventually dissipates. Mulled cider-like. Lots of ABV presence. Honey sweetness but spice predominates. Better as it warms, but before reaching room temp.
