COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This earthy, brightly acidic mead balances the berries’ slightly smoky, plummy notes, a medium sweetness and the lingering tartness of this delicious bramble.

Dark blood red. Nose is incredibly sweet. Slight mulch note. Tons of raw blackberry like eating a tree of blackberries. Interesting. I’d certainly drink a lot.

mcberko (6486) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
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.

Bottle shared with a bunch of heads at Ryans. Poured deep purple with light top that faded away. Notes are juicy purple plum, blackberry, port wine, rich honey, and jam. This thing was smooth, and blackberry jellied out. Nice honey drank.
