Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
250ml bottle. Copper shade. No head. Aroma is grassy, sweet honey, berry fruits. Very sweet and syrupy taste with some light fruity action. Tasty stuff but I preferred the Piastowski to this. Theydon_Bois (21466) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle shared at Cotts Convention ii, thanks to Daniel, 05/03/16.
Rich golden orange with a decent off white cap - a handsome mead.
Nose is sweet tunes, honey dollop, caramel, a little 1D.
Taste comprises mellow fruit, caramel, honey, Golden Grahams, melted syrup.
Full boided, oily massaging mouthfeel with a boozy tickle.
Decent mead ... really kicks into life once it trickles down the gullet. The_Osprey (9673) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle share at Cotteridge II as Apis Dwójniak Kurpiowski, 16%. Picked up at a Polski Sklep in West London. Dark amber orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is a bit boozy, honey, spice, varnish. Body is smooth, low carbonation, oily. Taste is very sweet, honey, papery, twiggy, wafer, tawny port, touch of solvent. Personally this is too sweet for me, and a touch harsh. This can be a style I struggle with, so no particular criticism of this one.

Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention - 2016 edition. Massive thanks to Daniel for this one! Pours clear, rich ruby-orange - lovely. The nose holds berries, ripe apples, background honey. Heavy sweet flavour, sugary and oily, with present alcohol, decadent honey, light floral notes, honeysuckle, impressions of berries. Full bodied, oily and lightly chewy. Warming on the finish, slick, with further hearty and gooey honey, flowers. Awesome stuff. The richness of the honey character is just outstanding, and the blackcurrant gives it a nice edge of complexity. Stunning. Camons (13497) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle @ Home. Pours amber, no head, lacings. Sweet aroma of honey, light wood, spice, berries, alcohol. Flavor is sweet, but not as sweet as feared from aroma, honey, bee wax, wood, spice, berries, blackcurrant, some alcohol. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, flat carbonation, sweet finish with warming alcohol. Lovely. 080316

Bottle big thanks to Dan at the 2016 Cotteridge Convention. It is rich deep oily amber in colour. The aroma is rich, oily, honeycomb, orange blossom, vanilla, toffee and honey cake. The taste is rich, oily, bitter – sweet, fruity, honey on toasted bread, floral, crunchie, wood and vanilla with a slick finish. Medium – full bodied with and oily mouth-feel. Well – rounded and rather drinkable. A tasty mead indeed. SarkyNorthener (5012) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
