phaleslu (6410) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle shared by Chris - thanks again, Chris! Pours a clear black cherry color with no carbonation or head. The aroma has a surprising underlying cinnamon heat (like Goldschlager), with cherry, honey, and some sweet nuttiness. Flavor of rich cherries, honey - great balance between the two - with mellow spice, sweet nuts, and red wine. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a fruity mouthfeel. Very nice mead.
