4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This one pours a dark red color hinted in the light. A candy cherry aroma. Almost sugary. A bright tart cherry flavor hits right upfront on the sip. A very soft smooth mouthfeel. Big leather note mixed in. An alcohol presence in the back end. A soft honey touch that brings a nice sweetness. Rich smooth soft stuff here.

Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. The Mead pours a maroon color with a minimal head and sticky legs on the glass. The aroma consists of cherries, honey and oak. Full-bodied with a tart black cherries, oak and sweet honey. The finish is fruity with a lingering tart cherry aftertaste. Really good Mead all around.

Bottle... This mead rocks!Ö Pours clear, dark and crimson with millipede-like legs Ė theyíre absolutely everywhere. The aroma offers big-time black cherries with an undercurrent of methanol. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel. The flavor boasts off-the-charts cherry sweetness flanked by acute sour-cherry acidity. Finishes tart and fruity and then dries out a touch. Big-time thanks to biggsbowler for sharing this treasure!
