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.

My first Mead-Rating, so I have no comparison. LCRBM: Deep orange color, nice sticky laces on the glasse. Alcohol and and slightly kumquat honey taste. The alcohol is suprisingly hidden though and it is smooth and lingers down quite nicely! I have to get more experience and hopefully I can rerate this some time.

Brilliant thick orange beer (color of Mandarine Napoléon Liquor). No head but an overwhelming aroma of oranges, honey, Cognac, cane sugar with brown Rhum, mandarines, sharp mirabelles and bergamots. The moutfeel is oily and thick. It leaves sticky tears on the glas (glycerol?) At first it is very sweet and decadent honey like. then the sourish, refreshing citrus fruit accents are comming up. The alcohol gives it an extra warming dimention, but it is extreemly well integrated in this most original Mead style beer. I dont know who brought this to the LCRBM but thanks anyway.

Smell of sherry, taste exactly like sherry, but too sweet. If you like mead I guess it’s okay...

No#27. I was sitting next to the fellow who brought this and he’s a seriously funny fellow, if you see this beer mail me. This just outstanding, soem might say this isnt beer, and well you might be right but that doesnt stop it tasting outstandingly good. Aroma is complexly fruity, with a nice full sweetness. Taste is just oustanding, the honey swirls round your mouth with the fruit and oh i could go on for days about this fellow, but id prefer to just drink more. Yum yumm.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Still, honey-brown color. Rich and decadent aroma of honey, lemon and subtle mint. Honey and lemons, fruity apple juice flavors, so much is going on. Very sweet, but not over the top. Alcohol is hidden incredibly well. Many thanks to Steve (wohlfs) for smuggling this bottle into the Concordia Ale House in Portland.

JorisPPattyn (9766) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 16, 2005
Orange, brandy-like appearance. Absolutely overwhelming fruity, honey and woods (as "in-forest") taste, a winter reserve from the Squirrel King. Extremely sweet, nearly chewy, with a taste liked heated fresh honey, the lemon already added. Nearly not liquid. I’m not for sweet, let alone sweet˛, but this is OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD. Genius, whomever brought it.

This was 16 ABV. Nice yellow colour, not fantastic aroma but very nice. Powerfull sweet flavour og honey. Nice mouthfeeling. But mead is not my strong side.

Not much aroma, but wonderful taste of fruits and honey. Is this a sherry or is the a mead. Great taste.

I tried this on the advice of a freind of mine. To say I liked it is a vast understatement. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous. Lusicous taste of honey, hint of raspberry and rose. Amazing smell. When you swirl it in the glass, it has amazingly thick legs. I’ll be buying more of this for sure!
