COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after one boisterous Scottish wench who successfully defended the Scottish Castle of Dunbar during a five-month siege by William Montague, the Earl of Salisbury. Grown in the British Isles for over five hundred years and used by herbalists since the middle ages, the black currants in this dessert mead pay tribute to Black Agnes, our kind of girl.

375ml. Incredible ruby color. Incredible dark berry aroma and flavor. Doesnít have the overly boozy sweet honey flavor that every other mead has. This is just intense fruit with the perfect sweetness. Flat oily body. Like nothing Iíve had before. Need to find more Schrammís now.

TURDFERGUSON (4017) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Numerous bottles over the last 6 months. This stuff is so delicious I could easily down a pint of this every night before bed, but that may be a bit much. Rich currant and cherry flavors dominate the nose and flavor. Pours reddish purple with nice legs, no head obviously. Just a fantastic drink that I wish I could have at my disposal to drink anytime. If I hadnít had B. Nektar/Schrammís Heart of Darkness this would without a doubt be my go-to #1 mead.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a clear purple with no head. The aroma is strong black currant and wine. Thick mouth, jammy, blackberry, vinous, grape, very impressive.

A: Black currant sure hits the nose hardcore! Very pleasant! Some honey as well. T: Sweet with an excellent black currant flavour! O: I love this! Just like picking the berries straight from the bush and just mash them with some honey.

omhper (20915) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2015
Bottled, thanks hackobock! Deep burgundy colour. Aroma of concentrated black currant lemonade. Very sweet with sticky mouthfeel and full body. Syrupy black currant juice concentrate. Alcohol fight with sugar in the finish. Superficial and sticky.
