4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Tom, thanks again! Pours a dark red and completely still with no head but some nice legs. Nose is of alcohol, cherries and light burnt honey. Taste is of currants jam and pretty sweet but it is saved by a light lactic acidity. Mouthfeel is coating and dense. A fine after supper drink!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle (375 ml). Huge thanks to Chris for this one! Deep burgundy with nice legs. Aroma is of deep fruits (black currants, black cherries), honey, almost vinous notes, tobacco notes and some sweetness... quite complex! Taste is sweet but not cloying with intense fruitiness (black currants, black cherries), honey, vinous notes and light tobacco. Medium body. Liquorous/vinous mouthfeel. Lingering fruity finish. A bit tannic too. Incredibly tasty beverage with a nice depth. Itís hard to showcase the fruits more than that. Even if itís quite sweet and high abv, itís easy too drink and way too easy to enjoy! Loved it!

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep, deep purple that coats the glass. Aroma has currant and stone fruit....oy, the aroma. Between seeing it tear and the aroma, you know this will be good. Taste is everything one expects from a schramm fruit mead, and that is an onslaught of currant (in a good way) with exceptional balance. May be my favorite "shelf" mead from them.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A glass on tap from the meadery. It pours a very dark red color with a hint of lighted red. A dark fruit aroma. A perfect tart feel and taste upfront. A really nice dark fruit feel and flavor all throughout. Very drinkable. Honestly probably the best mead Iíve ever had. Very good stuff. The perfect balance of tart and fruit feel.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From bottle at Schrammís. Pour is deep purple with red tint. Smells of black currants, port wine and sweet honey. Nicest finish Iíve ever had in a mead,. The sweetness completely masks the alcohol.
