2 oz sample from Tommy, thanks man! Apperance is a deep thick purple. Aroma is grapes, black berries, honey, and light vinious undertones. Taste is sweet blackberries, and honey,slighty dry finish, with a berry aftertaste. Very good mead, but not as much depth and complexity compared to the others Iíve tried from these guys. Still very good though.

tom10101 (3577) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
2 oz from bottle (375 ml)

Appearance: Deep purple, no head and little legs.

Aroma: Lots of juicy berries along floral-honey, red wine notes and light mineral presence.

Taste: Not very sweet. Burst of berries again with mild honeyed presence, red wine, earthy-mineral notes and cranberry juice.

Palate: Medium body. No bubbles, but it still tickles the tongue a bit. Surprisingly dry.

Overall: Not as much honey depth as most other Schrammís mead but still a really flavorful and tasty mead. Blackberry juice forward.

radarsock (1101) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 20, 2015
500 mL bottle supplied by AdamJackson at WillRunForBeerís January mead tasting.
Aromas of dried blackberries, unripe blueberries, a touch of dry kindling, and gym socks (in the most complimentary way possible!).
Tastes the same with the addition of pumpernickel, table sugar, acacia honey, and blackberry gushers.
Very sweet. Not to the point of legitimately being cloying, but probably my least favorite Schrammís thus far. Dry texture at mid-palate, but by swallow it was accurately drier than bones dust.
Honey was present, but just barely.

Bottle at Jamesí for a tasting with Ferris and Kraddel. Pours a deep crimson with no head. Slightly chemical berry notes over dry honey. Lightly effervescent with deep blackberries and a bit of tangy acid over long honey. Absolutely gorgeous.
