Flip-top bottle - growler @ cgarvieuk [ Lets do a chrisO Tasting ], Edinburgh, Scotland.

[ As New Day Imperial Breakfast Magpie ].
Clear dark red - purple color with a small, fizzy, virtually none lacing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy coffee - dusty coffee, moderate to light heavy raspberry and honeys. Flavour is light heavy sweet and light to moderate acidic with a long duration, raspberry, honey, sweet, tart raspberry, vanilla notes. Body is medium to full, texture is syrupy, carbonation is flat, finish feel is light alcoholic. [20140315]

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.

Bacterial (1555) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
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.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2014
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.

allmyvinyl (3371) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2014
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.

Bottle courtesy of Craig at Craigs doing a Chris O tasting, Edingburgh (ta for the beer Craig) Saturday 15th March Lovely rich red colour, big coffee on nose, quite bizarre but works very well, tangy fruity and not too sweet. I like it a lot. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6
