2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear cola brown with a bit of a small fizzy head. Aroma also has a bit of a cola tone with some burnt toast and cherrywood. Earthy malty flavor with lots of earthy toffee syrup, cola, and brown malts with a kiss of oak. Kinda lame.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Rogue San Francisco, pours a cloudy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma is like a bee hive, bringing out waxy nectar and caramel. Flavour brings out honey, syrupy caramel notes, and some slight resinous hops. Well-balanced, but not the most refined or elegant mead. Solid - drinkable in smaller amounts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Issaquah Brewhouse. Pours a hazy brownish Amber color with a thin thin off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of honey, caramel, and oak. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is thin and slick with good carbonation. I really liked this. Basically a mead with some beer qualities. Liked the way the barrel used added flavor. Thinking about getting a bottle for aging.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from tap to glass. Nice, clear brown color with full aroma of honey, blackberry, esters, malt. Mouthfeel is really nice for this big of a brew. Not chewy, but not watery either. Huge honey up front followed by nice blackberry essence. Finishes with ethanol, but not too overpowering. Pretty well rounded at this time, but will probably be really nice in a few years.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Rogue, San Francisco. A brown, unclear drink with a thin, light beige head. The aroma has a touch of dark bread, caramel, dried fruits and some citrus peel notes. There’s a warming alcohol touch in the mouth, it’s full-bodied and soft, with flavors of dried fruits, caramel, bread and some chocolate. Hints of honey shows up after a while. Lasting sweet finish with all the goodiness found initially. A strong drink, but very nice. 130805
