4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours clear light yellow with very little fizzy white head, completely diminishing with no lacing. Aroma is lightly baked sugar cookies, sweet flowers, and light earth notes with honey, vanilla, and cinnamon added. Full bodied, alcoholic texture, flat carbonation, and an astringent finish. Average duration, heavy sweetness, light acidity and bitterness. An elegantly crafted mead with a nice balance; not too sweet.

Light oily mouthfeel. Warm, but not overbearing alcohol. Almost dries out in the end. Thanks to richlikebeer for pointing out the end of the bottle. All the good stuff must sink!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2007 Bottle via a trade with carythedude. Shared with the Dallas crew. Pours with strong sticky legs left as remnants of the clear golden body. Aroma is fusel alcohol at first followed by butterscotch, herbal honey and a bit of earthiness. Taste is strong honey that is both sweet and herbal. It is in no way cloying and somewhat dry (lowish FG for a mead) finish. Medium duration finishing with lots of tannins. Mouthfeel is viscous, but not sticky. Excellent!
