Unbelievably delicious. Thick mouthfeel. Just coats everything. Murky blood red color. The Balaton really shines. Unreal cherry flavor with heavy sweetness. This is stuff is fantastic.

Great solid fruity nose, very nice. Taste is a mix of dry and fruit blending very well. I’ll take another.

I love this mead. Flawless. Looks awesome - dark and rich red (kinda like blood). Smells like a tart cherry. Tastes even better - like a delicious tart cherry. SOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOD

Very strong cherry flavor and aroma, one of my longtime favorites (as longtime as can be...) Now I am craving a ribeye and some garlic mashed potatoes

Cherry bomb in the nose and on the tongue. Great purple color. Sweet and tart in the right balance.

Bottle thanks to mbrown44. Pours a dark ruby hue, some legs. A huge nose of honey and cherries, very sweet. Huge sugary sweet cherries, that sort of spicy woody cherry pit flavor that the best cherry brews have, some big sugary notes. Loads of sweet honey. Lovely. Hot. Certainly a dessert.

Bottle sample @ Troy’s Bday tasting @ Stein & Vine. Thanks Tchaos. Couleur pourpre, acajou sombre, filament doré et huileux au verre. Arôme offre un impressionnant bouquet fruité, notamment de cerise aux propriétés offrant un bouquet finement acidulé mais contrebalancé par un somptueux mielleux cloying. Petite note fleurie en rétro-nasal. Palais est doux, mielleux avec un fruité tout simplement unique, plein de cerise au côté noir, finement acidulé et juste la bonne dose de miel pour rendre le tout plutôt complexe au palais et un subtil mélange acidulé-doux sur la langue. L’alcool perce bien sans être de trop, avec un léger fleuri.

Skinny ass 375ml. Blood red. Cherries, sugar, very strong honey mead booze which I didn’t get from black Agnes. Finish is cherry syrup.

I don’t like meads but this was still pretty good. My opinion on meads should be pretty much disregarded though.

Bottle thanks to Brian. Pours a dark purple with no head. The aroma is strong black cherry, wine, honey. Thin mouth, jammy, nice cherry and light honey, nice booze, very impressive.
