Bottle; thanks, P! Pours a clear but very dark, slightly rubied amber. No trace of head or lace. Huge sweet nose, lots of vanilla and a bit of pancake syrup, floral honey, some light tangy fruity notes. Sticky thick gooey body. Intensely, overbearingly sweet attack, mid-palate, and finish. Amplified apple and vanilla and pancake syrup on the mid palate. This tastes like a concentrated syrup you’d use to make something else, rather than a coherent finished drink. Very well done, just incredibly sweet, even by the standards of showy meads.

Bottle @ Redstone. Hazed golden pour. Rich apple aroma. Lots of caramel, vanilla, and brown sugar. Some maple syrup to it as well. Very sweet, but quite nice. Flavor is sweet apple, caramel, and maple syrup. Vanilla, brown sugar, and a subtle fruit tartness. Excellent.

Brouwerij (914) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Pour at Redstone. Pours an orange brown, no head or lacing. Aroma is strong alcohol, honey, oaky, apple. Flavor is very sweet, with a juicy, apple, honey finish. Smells strongly of alcohol but it is well masked in the taste. No carbonation, med body and smooth texture. Really enjoyed this, even more so than the Reserve Traditional. A very tasty mead.

Pours golden. Aromas of caramel apples. Flavor is rich sweet apples, honey with hints of tartness peeking through. It’s rich, full bodied and downright good.

Bottle @ Bill’s house. Thanks Bill. Pours a clear dark golden appearance with no head. Spicy apple cinnamon, pear, honey, white grape aroma. A bit goopy, spicy hot cider, chewy honey, herbal, candy flavor. Maybe my favorite cyser I’ve ever had.

Hazy amber color, no head. Sweet, alcohol scent. Sweet, honey, apple taste. Smooth mouthfeel, no bitterness. Sweet finish. Lovely stuff, though not cheap.

Actually labeled as cyser reserve from 2004, pour into snifter out of bottle was deep orange, thick and syrupy. Aroma brought big notes of sweet golden apples, slightly tart green apples, some big floral, and sweet honey with vanilla, slight oaky notes as well. Taste is a really nice honey and caramel apple, with sweet and tart apples mixing with sweet and floral dry honey, finishing very sweet. Wow, very, very tasty.

Clear gold with an orange tint. Aroma has some boozy notes of apple, caramel, along with a mild touch of wood. Taste was incredible, smooth, and coating. Got some caramel apple, honey sweetness, and a warm boozy sweet finish. Pure delight.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2008
Dark gold with a rich honeyed apple nose. Flavor is a full on assault of semi sweet honey and rich apple tart. Medium bodied and slick throughout. The blend here is expertly crafted. Special thanks to David M for this tasty treat...
