Poured a dark purple almost black color with aromas of sweet honey and black berries. Flavors are a mixture of aromas lots of black berries and some sweetness. Loads of flavor can see why his stuff is highly rated enjoyed this but couldnít drink a ton of these in a sitting but a glass will do tonight.

SpongeRuiner (803) - Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours into a great looking dark jam on my toast color. Slightly heavier on the bubbles than normal. Good looking stuff. A very solid aroma full of mixed berries, plums, and grapes. Honey background smooths everything out. A tart fresh fruit flavor. Sweet in the front and dries in the end. Just a peak of alcohol strength makes a presence in the back end. If anything gives balance. A woody oak spiced flavor. Sweet honey flavors all around. Leaves a great berry jammy flavor on the lips. Good stuff as always.

Dogbrick (8813) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. This Mead pours a reddish-violet color with a minimal head and decent legs on the sides of the glass. Aroma of berries and honey. Full-bodied with flavors of tart blackberries and other dark fruits, with sweet honey in the background. The finish is fruity with a lingering blackberry aftertaste. Tasty Mead all around.

Willrunforbeerís grand mead tasting. Deep purple color with a huge black berry juice, raspberry and mild honey.

The flavor is the same with the addition of some red wine hints. Tannic. Full body, dry texture. Sample this at a huge mead tasting and got to say itís lower end of the Schramms for me personally.

Lukaduke (2399) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a deep violet color. Aromas of sweet honey with lots of ripe berry. Palate starts out silky and bright with sweet honey and blossoms with layers of tart blackberry skins, sweet juicy berry and a nice lingering vinous acidity that helps clean up the sweetness on the finish.

JBPortland (972) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 15, 2014
375ml bottle pours dark almost opaque ruby red violet with no head. Nose is ripe berry, vinous dark fruits, dates. Taste is creamy soft mouthfeel, rich semi sweet blackberry and mixed dark berries meet dry vinous dates and dark fruit. Finish is complex dark berry and earthy soil fruit. Very nice.

Tasting at Mattís
Measured Final Gravity: 1042

Dark blood color. Deep blackberry aroma; it has a mild acidity, and humid shrubs. Sweet, but with nice astringency and acidity, rich.
Not really a mead, but I like berry wines and this a very good one.
