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.

shadey (2166) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 1000th rating. 27+ year old bottle. I received this bottle in a trade over 2 years ago and it was 25 years old when I traded for it.

The pour is darker than I expected. There is no carbonation, no head. Extensive legs on the glass. The pour is dark reddish brown but clear. The aroma is sweet and but mostly alcoholic. This is a sipping drink to be sure. The flavor is sweet and full of spice. Caramel, candy, flowers, honey. Quite delicious. The body is viscous, smooth, silky and well blended. The alcohol is there, but well blended with everything else. There is almost a flavor of cream and fruit.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
(Bottle) Beautiful warm, reddish amber with no head whatsoever. Sweet, alcoholic nose of caramel and alcohol. Extremely full-bodied and extremely complex flavour pattern with loads of honey and fruit acents. But this is EXTREMELY sweet - actually I don’t believe I’ve ever had anything this sweet in my life. I love its complexity but am having trouble with its sugary sweetness. 260806
