Bottle (650 ml). From Thomas, thanks! Dark brown with a small beige head and no lacing. Aroma is of honey, sweetness notes ,caramel, alcohol and figs. Taste is quite sweet with honey, caramel, alcohol, figs and light soy sauce. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Sticky sweet finish. A bit harsh and not much complexity. Nothing off though and somewhat tasty.

I love the bees wax dipped neck.. Smells great. Nice apple and cantaloupe aroma. Big sweet aroma, some bourbon barrel, wooden and watercress. Alcohol is well hidden. Smooth, waxy and honey finish. Tasty.

Visual: Lightly sealed with wax, adding a nice touch of exquisiteness despite its very affordable price. Its also labeled by according the year it was brewed and barrel-aged for good measure. Pours medium-dark brown with barely any head, thin ringed micro CO2 retention, visible steady streams. Nose: aromatic honeyed caramel malts, very inviting. (9/10)-aromatic strength. Attack: malty-honey-(9/10)-sweetness, silky-fizzy mouthfeel, Mid-palate: (4/10)-mellow alcohol detection (MAIN) caramel malts, honey, brown sugar (MILD) fig, soy sauce Finish: fading alcohol, malts, Summary: Similar to Innis & Gunn sweet but with more depth, alcohol, and bit of Belgium brune mixed in. Its a bit thinnish in the texture department due to the lack of CO2 but overall the taste profile is very nice.

650 ml bottle. 10.2% 8.5 IBU. (It aint bitter.) Pours a dark brown/mahogany with very little head. Aromas of caramel, burnt honey, moderate oak, and beeswax. (OK, maybe the later is from the wax seal - which smells very pleasant on its own. ) Rich flavors of thick honey, maple syrup, vanilla/oak and roasted malts. Sweet. Very nice. Worth cellaring for a short time. Lil Red is forgiven.

Cask at Central City Winter Cask Fest 13, pours a hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet dark fruits, wood and some honey. Flavour of sweet dark fruits, a bit of honey and some metallic notes. Bizarre certainly not akin to any meads Ive had. Perhaps this could use some age as it doesnt taste particularly refined. Decent stuff, but lets see where this is at in a year.
