olio (9216) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2012
3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
8 cl sample from a 75 cl bottle.
Pours clear mahogany color with no head. Very viscotic pour, lots of sugar to be expected... Aroma of sugar, caramel, honey, some tooth paste notes, vanilla notes and very ripe fruits. Flavour of honey, syrup, strong caramel, toffee, sugar, some ripe fruits and mint. Extremely sticky sweet palate, almost like drinking some alcohol-infused syrup. But the alcohol is again surprisingly well hidden. A proper mead.
