Bottle from Sam’s, Chicago. Poured clear dark copper color with good legs. Heavy woody fruity honey and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a thick smooth texture. Medium to heavy dark fruit honey flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet finish of moderate duration. Pleasing smooth alcohol burn. Standout mead. Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 13, 2008
(bottle thanks OSLO) Pours dark amber. Aroma is strong with caramel, raisin, brown sugar, and honey. Strong alcohol is also present, and dominating as the mead warms. The taste is very nice, and alternates between honey. caramel, and raisin. On the finish is where there is just a slight hint of that blackcurrant juice. The mouthfeel is full, with the lingering finish of blackcurrant (which kind of tastes like Grape Dimetapp). This is really good.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2012 [Bottle] Pours still golden-brown. Aroma is portlike with a lot of raisin, but also the obvious honey. The taste is very sweet, and very hot on the alcohol, with really nice honey mixing with the raisin character and just a hint of fresh fruit in the finish. Thick mouthfeel with a long finish. A very enjoyable mead--my only complaint would be that the alcohol is a little too dominant at times. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - APR 9, 2008
