Pours a dark purplish color with light purple pinkish head. Blackberries, vanilla, honey, plum jam, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with a nice balance between sweetness and a little tart note here and there.

Deep purple. Smells like IHOP boysenberry syrup. Taste is sweet as youíd expect, but a nice earthy tartness as well that balances it out. Flavor of blackberry and some red plum with skin.

Bottle from DanGeo. Deep velvet royal purple pour. Strong and complex blackberry with lavender buckwheat honey that just keeps on going with a balanced sweetness with some tartness from the berries. Mild carbonation and full bodied, long finish with mild lavender, berries and some currants, warming booziness. Yummy.

375ml. Blackberry, very sweet. Lots of honey comes through which I usually donít get from schramms. Touch of wet cardboard, makes me think it may be corked. This is the first schramms Iíve had that tasted like a "normal" mead, by that I mean that itís still good but the others ive had are something intensely crazy that donít even taste like other meads Iíve had.

Bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours a lovely deep red with thick and sugary lacing. Aroma has sweet, ripe blackberries, vinous, red, ripe plums, slight cherry. Taste is sweet with black currant, some fruity acidity, maybe some leathery tannins. Oily but pretty fresh mouth feel due to the tartness. Good stuff!!
