Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, 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 sheep’s 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 (4960) - 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.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2011
750 ml porcelain jug from Wine and Cheese Place. 2008 vintage. Pours a clear, deep golden-orange color with no visible carbonation or head. Aroma of honey, grassy herbs, dusty books, caramel, dry wheaty grains, and sugary syrup. Flavor of honey, straw, caramel, wheat, and a lot of herbs. Medium-full bodied, with no carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel that coats the palate with lingering honey and herbs. This was a big hit at a NYE party. Really nice mead, if not quite at the level of a few others from this apiary.

cheap (4003) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Got this at the Vintage estates in a meade sampler, cool. These ’brews’ are halarious! Color is caramel brown, like whiskey. Weird alky aroma, undescribable by my beer standards. Sweet plastic honey wine and comes across almost artificial but in a good way. Flat and rather winey. of course. Simply complex honey wine.
