Bottle at Clockwork’s lots of mead ticking this evening. Pours ruby gold with nose of honey and cocoa. Tastes of cocoa powder, honey, floral, and light berries. Sweet but overall kinda dull

Thanks to Rayboy and the rest of the League for sharing this mead that I have wanted to try ever since I saw it added to the site. Viscous pale yellow color with no head. Aroma is sweet alc and honey with a little floral nose. Sweet honey flavor with a little too much alc, I really wish that the chocolate was more apparent. Medium viscous body. I am a big fan of this meadery and the guys are absoliutely great that run it, but this one may have missed the mark a little bit. Thanks!

Thanks to the LoSBD for not only putting on DLD (thanks for the clusterf*ck guys), but providing a table to showcase the local meads. This one pours a clear water yellow color. That nose. umm ... I hate to sound ungrateful .. but it is seriously horrible. Nothing but plastic tubing. Rubbing alcohol, rubber. Just terrible. I could only hope that flavors are better, and they are but not by too much. I think only a little of that plastic tubing seeped into the flavor but there was enough sweet honey to back it up. The chocolate is barely noticeable. Only a dry dusting of bakers chocolate just before the finish.
