4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, july 25th 2015. Dark red body, no head. Aroma of red grapes, blackcurrant, spices and honey. Taste is sweet, really sweet, dominated by blackcurrant and honey, thick bodied, more or less a blackcurrant juice. I haven’t the faintest idea if this is true to style or not but couldn’t care less, this is just so extremely good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
December 30, 2015. Sample courtesy of linusb, thanks!
Deep purple, no head. Aroma is sweet floral honey, dark grape juice, some black currants, toffee and leather. Taste is very sweet, light tart fruity and hints of alcohol. Finish is sweet honey and light toffee and light dry grape skin astringency, tart black currants and some earthy leather notes and warming alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily light sticky, no carbonation.
Once it breaths the buttery notes fades away and the sweet honey and grape character takes over.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fad: På Mikkeller & Friends. Dybrød med et let mudret billede uden skumhoved. Sødlig duft af bær og en smule tannin. Sødmen kan anes. Smagen er sødlig med en masse taninsyre hvilket giver en fin balance. Rigtig interessant men ikke en øl. Får ekstra point for at være høj kvalitet.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle bought @ Mikkeller & Friends. Batch 0609. Pours deep ruby red leaving some pretty legs on the glass. Smell is fruity and floral with high quality complex honey, dark rustic grape must, caramel, toffee, pollen, bees wax, moist hay, leather, moist wood and nose-tingling alcohol. Taste is sweet, tiny sour, heavy fruity and slightly floral. Mouthfeel is fat, round, viscous, oily, boozy, slightly fruit skin astringent and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and tiny sour with dark honey, dark grape must, bilberries, black cherries, leather, dried pine needles, moist wood, minerals and alcohol. Delicious Pyment where one plus one really becomes one. Delicious mead base with subtle multi-berry complexity added from the grapes. Very pricey at almost 600 DKK (iirc) but it’s a high quality product I would be willing to pay for. Cheers and happy mead day!
