Bottle thanks to my Mom for Christmas! Pours a deep copper with a hint of gold and no head whatsoever. Aroma has a nice note of smooth honey, but has a good amount of backing booze as well. Flavor starts with a nice sweet honey note with a hint of light fruit but the finish is quite boozy and harsh.

Ceramic bottle, bottled 2009-01-22.
Measured Final Gravity 1027

These guys at Maciej Jaros surely have very attractive bottles (also expensive...).
It pours a beautiful gold-copper color, bright, but with some haze. The aroma is deep, with honey, mild fruits (even some strawberries), iberic fortified wines (from Sherry to white Porto). The flavor is sweeter than the 1027 F.G. would suggest, with honey, some soft caramel, and a fair degree of fruitiness; the alcohol is moderate and works as pleasant complement. The final gets just a bit drier. Fresh and highly drinkable.
Very good. As a Trojniak, one of the best.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Miod Pitny Trojniak Trybunalski, 13.5% on the label. Wow, dark (brown, amber, ruby). Very slight carbonation when first poured (100cl bottle). Spices and alcohol on the aroma, really really sweet and alcoholic burn, spiced hot caramel, burnt honey. It is sweet but I am finding it surprisingly easy to drink (small sample of course). Extremely long finish, lasting and lasting spicy sweet warm almost numbing waves stay in your mouth. Really good for my first real mead experience. I could see this as a quince replacement; mead must go well with a lot of cheeses I love; aged Piedmont gorgonzola, aged Gouda, some cheddars, some sheeps hard Spanish cheeses whose names I forget, triple cremes, Cypress whatever with the ash line, which I love. I wish I had that here right now to go with this awesome mead.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2011
750ml Bottle (at 14%ABV per the Bottle): Sweet, complex aroma of honey, maple syrup, dates, figs, and slight toasting. Poured amber in color with no head. Cloudy. Not sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is heavily sweet. Tastes of honey, sugar, slight nuts, slight alcohol, maple syrup, slight pancake batter, and sugar. Medium body. Slick, slightly viscous texture. No carbonation. Heavily sweet, honey, sugar, and maple syrup finish is slightly dry. 14%ABV is slightly present in the flavor, but by no mean overbearing or hot.
