COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has very rich specific fragrance due to the addition of raspberries and wild rose to nectar honey.

1 litre of Półtorak style mead contains 720 g of natural honey. By comparison, the Dwojniak style of mead contains 610g/L of honey; the Trojniak contains 420g/L and the Czworniak contains 320g/L.

Półtorak mead matures for several years to achieve full clarity. In time its rich aroma hides a high content of alcohol (16%) and acidity forming the finest liquor there is.

Yeah, you damn right this is sickeningly sweet, but at the same time somehow manages to have a fairly complex flavor, apples, candy, herbs... A good syrupy thing in smaller quantities :)

Bottle @Craigs (The Budget week tasting, rating backlog). Pours redish brown, no head. Nose is big and boozy, raisins and sultanas, wood, raspberries, some oxidisation but i don’t think it hurts. Taste is a sweet attack on the senses, its uber sweet. There is a slight sherry note.

Like pigwowa in beer form. Quite sweet and with a thick bod, as expected, with bitter berries and cherries against a honey background. Delicious cough syrup, essentially. Though meads aren’t usually my thing, I can appreciate it’s good for what it is - absolutely no artificial taste as you can risk with fruitier drinks.

JtanK (556) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Deep, sweet aroma of honey, liqueur, raspberry. Very intense, sweet flavor of honey mixed with some tart/acidic fruity touches, beyond that very mild wood, spice and alcohol. Super full, thick and sticky body. God damn is it tasty.

DonGregorio (440) - POLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Sample from bottle. Clear amber colour, no head. Strong aroma of honey, raisins, berries, plums, some red fruits, light alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet, honey, raisins, dried fruits, plums, light toffee, ripe apples. Full body, syrupy, thick, sticky texture, flat carbonation. Warming and sweet fruity finish. Excellent mead, very complex and viscous.
