Med hænderne dybt begravet i lommerne, men med sanserne åbne. Sådan kan man møde Søbogaards vinkyper, på vandretur langs Vesterhavet, mens havgusen driver mod kysten. Dufte, smag, lyde, synet - alt oplevet smukt. Indtrykket med omhu sat på denne flaske.

MiP (15272) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle, 21%. Spicy aroma, sweet, woody and farty. Slightly hazy dark brown colour. The flavour is quite sweet, woody and minty with strong spices. Very complex and not what I expected from a mead, but I like it.

200ml bottle. Clear mahogany body with no head. Aroma is strong, sweet, herbal and alcohol. Flavor is sweet, quite alcoholic with honey and fruit/raisin. Thick and sweet body. As Yngwie mention there is some elements from beer here, thinking of strong beer like Samuel Adams Triple book. Interesting, but a 200ml bottle is plenty. 200ml bottle. Cloudy orange body with no head. Moderate sweet, alcoholic and honey aroma. Flavor is sweet honey and floral, not bad at all. This mead gives a warming alcoholic feeling and is not to dominated by honey. Maybe wrong for a mead to have this little honey flavor, but I prefer it this way. Thanx to Yngwie.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle. (trade w/papsoe) A dark brown mead, clear, with no head or bubbles at all. The aroma is quite sweetish and heathery, with herbs and spices as well. Alcohol is also very evident. It is not as oily as the Vesterhavs Eliksir, but still rather thick. It is quite sweet and herb-tasting, especially heather, and the alcohol sure leaves it’s traces. There’s something beery-like in the finish that I don’t like, else it is quite nice. It is a cold day here in Norway now, and the sun is shining from a sky without clouds, but it is too late in the year for it to warm much, so the warming mead did good. (071018)

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2007
Brown color. The aroma is sweet, with some honey, but medicinal too, with some alcohol and caramel. Thick body, not oversweet, good flavor, well balanced by some herbal bitterness and by the alcohol warmth. Good.
