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.

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Clear bronze color Long tall legs on this as it is spun in the glass. Aromas of candied dates and raisin. The alcohol hits like that of kirsh off of a flambe'. Hints of honey attack the nose. Sweet smooth necture without the alcohol burn I truely expected. Flavors of maple syrup, honey, sorghum and a light oak linger.

Nocturne (1917) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2016
250ml bottle. Dark copper shade. No head. Fruity and floral aroma. Chewy taste, toffee, anise, red fruits, orange peel. Sweet and rich but still well balanced. Was very disappointed when this was all gone.

Korcz (1845) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 30, 2016
Bardzo dobry miód. Mega słodki, miodowo-owocowo, delikatnie kwaskowate owoce, całkiem gęste. Sporo karmelu, toffi, suszonych ciemnych owoców. Trochę przypomina Barley Wine z Baladina. Alkohol ukryty naprawdę przyzwoicie. No i szkło pięknie po nim płacze, jak po dobrej whisky. Świetne.

alteregoo (1149) - POLAND - NOV 16, 2016
Piany oczywiście brak. Barwa rubinowo ruda, klarowna. W aromacie głównie suszone owoce, dojrzałe, słodkie maliny, słodkie czerwone wino typu porto, a w drugim planie wyraźny miód, odrobina ziół. W smaku słodkie, likierowe, owocowo miodowe, lekkie kwaskowe nutki malin i dzikiej róży w posmakach. Mocne rozgrzewanie od alkoholu, ale bardzo szlachetne, miłe. Fajna oleista, gładka i lepka konsystencja.
Trunek do powolnego smakowania przy kominku w małych ilościach... Po wypiciu nieco większej ilości robi się przeraźliwie słodki i zbyt agresywnie alkoholowy.

rumore (185) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 16, 2016
From bottle, bought in Poland at the airport. Aroma had definitely honey, but also plum (reminds of Chinese plum wine). Body is thick, since its 16 degrees. Taste is strongly sweet and honey again. I really like this.

SlackerMads (3165) - DENMARK - OCT 10, 2016
Pours still deep amber. Rich and sweet. Starts with honey, then dark dried fruits, sherry, light candied fruit. Has a light acidic touch after the initial sweetness. Notes of tobacco, syrup and vanilla too. Warming alcohol. Good.

kermis (12037) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2016
Bottle shared at THT. Clear amber brown with no head. Aroma of big floral honey, treacle and brown sugar. Flavour is very heavy sugary sweet. Above medium bodied with flat carbonation. Way too sugary sweet. [26-08-2016]

Velquex (94) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 16, 2016
[Butelka] Wygląd: Miodowe, lekko zamglone. Aromat: Owoce, miód i alkohol. Smak: Słodkość, alkohol, lekko piecze w przełyk. Podsumowanie: To jest to, czego szukam w miodzie - słodycz, średnie ciało, przyjemny aromat.
