UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 750ml bottle (?, Warsaw) (7:3:7:3:14=3.4)
Hazy honey colour, still. Sweet honey aroma, alcohol, some glue, some rubber, light herbs, apple. Sticky palate. Very sweet taste, quite a floral honey, some sour green apple juice. Quite pleasant, but just too sticky compared to other mjods. Finish is a touch mushroomy, but very sugary too. Pleasant, but doesn’t have the crispness that Apis poltorak has, for example. Side by side with a TIM trojniak, this failed to shine.
Rerate: 750ml glass bottle (Dionisus, Radom) (7:4:7:4:15=3.7)
Heavy dense honey aroma. Beautiful rich amber. Lighter palate than before - yes it’s very sweet and almost sticky, but there’s a sharpness that lightens it too. The taste is extremely sweet, this is literally drinkable honey, some propolis-like flavours too. Quite delicious. A perfect drink before bedtime. Adjusting the score up just a tad.

Measured Final Gravity: 1099
It pours a hazy hamber color. Sweet aroma, alcoholic, with honey and apple juice, Calvados; liquor-like. Very sweet flavor, syrupy, with a mix of honey and apricot marmalade. Even sweeter and marmalade-like to the end; the alcohol is beautifully hidden. Not complex, but powerful, balanced and extremely enjoyable (if you have a sweet tooth).

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Nice dark honey color with some reddish haze. Aroma is a wonderful sweet bouquet of wildflower honey, burnt sugar, and some mild alcohol. Flavor has some wildflower and sage honey that is very sweet mixed with some gentle berry and heavy sugar. Nice feel - Very, very good but this one doesn’t quite match the complexity of their Koronny Dwojniak nor Apis’ Poltorak. Heavy & sweet are prerequisites with a good Poltorak, but this one needs more complexity to be truly great. Still, its hard to be picky when a mead is this good.
