375mL bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a tiny head. Aroma of dark berries, quite dry with light honey. Flavour is very complex, with loads of elegant pure blackberries, light-to-medium sweetness for a mead, and alcohol. It’s like drinking a blackberry pie filling. Quite dry, and almost with a lightly tart berry note. Really well-made stuff. Excellent stuff.
