Growler. Fresh coffee grounds, black raspberry, light oak, and alcohol aroma. Deep rich plum, good legs. Fresh coffee, sweet black raspberry, and a light subtle oak flavor. Full body, soft carbonation. This is really fantastic, but I do like the regular version a little better.

Growler sent to me by David - thanks! Pours a beautiful deep purple with a slight purple head. Nose is coffee, dark berry and oaky. Taste is wonderfully complex, sweet, lots of black raspberry character, fades into coffee and then into some nice bourbon heat. Flavors are getting deeper and more complex as my growler warms. An exceptional example of a great mead.

Bottle @ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours black/red, nose is a bit weird but the taste is wonderful, coffee, cherry and blackberry to the fore with the honey coming through at the back end, wonderful.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours rich purple-red, no head. Roasted coffee dominates the nose, berries behind. Taste is blackberry and vanilla, some heat. Doesn’t smell like it looks, doesn’t taste like it smells. Strange but good. Another surprise from the world of mead.
