3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Older bottle from the basement, I believe from 2010.
Reddish amber color with a smattering of bubbles on the top.
Rich sweet honey and dark fruit notes on the nose with a hint of caramel, alcohol, and light sherry notes. The flavor is fruity honey with a hint of apple and again light sherry. I think its better fresh, I’m a big fan of this mead, but its interesting how the flavors have evolved over the last few years.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. Deep dark red pour with no head. Aroma is like blueberry and black currant juice. Tastes the same. Sugary sweet and very fruity. Thin to medium body. Solid mead but the rich honey doesn’t come through at all. The abv is incredibly well hidden though. This stuff could be very dangerous.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy honey, cherries...and I suppose blueberries if you tell me they are there. It pours a very dark red with a a few stray pink bubbles for a head. It doesn’t stick to the glass all that much. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy sweet cherries. Again, I guess there’s blueberries too if you tell me they are there. The finish has moderate honey and light apple. It’s medium-full bodied with minimal carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel.
