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.

Bottle pours a clear golden yellow with no head or lacing. Amazing sweet and fumey honey and lightly flowery aroma. Flavor is extremely sweet but the rich honey and slight floral and raspberries are just the right combination. Obvious high ABV but the over the top sweet flavor makes you not care. Extremely soft and smooth with a slight sediment or waxy palate at the end. I will never have a mead like this again Im sure. Thanks a ton Buck Dich

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2006 [Bottle] Dark amber colour. Prickly aroma, with alcohol notes. Rubber. Licorice. Honey. Nice, but the cutting aroma is a bit disturbing. The honey flavour is powerful and delicious, backed up by sherry and cherry, and a rubbery undertone. Pretty soft mouthfeel, but not overwhelming. Long finish. I was more impressed by Vikingernes Mjöd.

RBSG 06. Clear amber body, still. The aroma is caramel, apple cider, golden raisins and slightly floral. The flavor is honey, very sweet honey and more honey. The mouthfeel is rich, creamy, very soft, slightly warm.

Sampled a few times at State College BrewExpo. You either like mead or you don’t. I happen to like it, and this stuff is wonderful. Nice tart honey nose, with floral undertones and notes of wax. Golden amber clear with no head (obviously). Thick and sweet, with alcohol warming after a nice coating of gooey sweetness trickles down your throat. Honey, flowers, wax, and just a bit of brown sugar in this. Finish is clean and sweet, and there’s a little tang in the after. Gotta get me a bottle of this stuff.

Sampled at RBSG 2006- Grand Tasting. Sweet Jesus! This has the appearance of scotch whiskey. It smells absolutely flammable, yet is incredibly smooth. This is about the thickest mead I’ve ever tasted. It is almost a honey syrup. My guess is that this would not pour if refrigerated. Fantastic. Just fantastic.

I,ve been sitting on this for over a year now. My friend dropped by the other day and we consumed it in honor of a five gallon batch of mead he just lost by lightly bumping a bottle of rum into. The carboy just blew out and the whole five gallons hit the floor, shame. Anyways,,,, Poured thickly into our wine glasses a lovely amber copper hue, lightly glowing with an ever so slight haze. Nose of fruit, berrys, honey and a hint of alcohol. Body is medium palate is coating, oily, caressing. Yes it,s sweet but i imagine it,s supposed to be. Something along the lines of a Sauterne(sp?) German super sweet wine. I definately enjoy this sweetness in a wine. Lotsa sweet honey flavors, spices,fruity, light nuttiness, light woody notes with a hint of oxydation also. Alcohol makes itself known too. Finish is sweet not cloyingly so though, with that loving alcohol heat coming to rest. A real treat for myself and Mr. Jeff. In honor of his first batch of Mead that was lost in such a horrid fashion.

Pours a golden yellow. Very strong. Scents and flavors almost like a fine cognac. Sweet and tons of what else,honey! The only mead I’ve ever had and it will be hard to live up to this one. Again, Thanx Jimmack.

Finally getting my chance to try this mead. Beautiful glowing gold. Strong melon and spicy alcohol. Scuppernongs. Richly sweet. Needs to be sipped as two big of a swallow burns, but a small sip is a very beautiful thing. Tons of honey. Most meads don’t smell this much like unfermented honey. Drinking this reminds of picking sunwarmed scuppernongs with their honeylike sweetness off the vine in my parents’ backyard as a kid.
