COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after one boisterous Scottish wench who successfully defended the Scottish Castle of Dunbar during a five-month siege by William Montague, the Earl of Salisbury. Grown in the British Isles for over five hundred years and used by herbalists since the middle ages, the black currants in this dessert mead pay tribute to Black Agnes, our kind of girl.

juiceisloose (2106) - Windermere, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2019 375ml bottle. Pours a very dark ruby red color and topped by a thin ring of bubbles. The aroma shows notes of rich dark fruit, black currants, toasted honey, and vinous jammy currant notes it has a touch of tartness and acidity. Very rich and fruit forward with loads of black currants. The flavor follows suit with rich and slightly tart black currants right up front and backed up by the sweetness from the honey with some nice vinous currant and jammy fruit notes with some balancing acidity. Full bodied and smooth with no carbonation that leads to a sweet honey and tart black currant finish with some nice acidity as well. Unbelievable fruit flavor in this mead and supremely well executed. Just awesome stuff.

JorisPPattyn (10815) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - JUL 22, 2018
Phenomenal colour of ruby, mauve and black. Intensely fruity (though I would have guessed blackberry rather than blackcurrant), very intense and superb. Sweet-sourish, dark berries, superb fruitflavours, not a trace from the blackcurrantleaf, so often in beers. Lipsmacking sourness, restrained stickyness. The berryflavours in this mead are absolutely a delight.

3.3
Koelschtrinker (26418) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 14, 2018
Intensiver Beginn von Johannisbeeren, süßlich, etwas Honig, Saft. Dabei weniger süß als erwartet, die Frucht bringt eine milde Säure ins Met. Der Safteindruck verstärkt sich noch, dabei bleibt vom Met nicht viel übrig. Intensiv, nie alkoholisch, trockener Hintergrund von Johannisbeeren. Unsüffig. 10/11/8/10/12/10

2.7
simont1 (689) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2018
Aroma of concentrated blackcurrant cordial. Sweet and sticky, like drinking saft (cordial). Taste just like blackcurrant juice concentrate with sugar. It's not very drinkable, or complex.
