ClarkVV (6090) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 17, 2008
From the bottle as part of a mead flight at Sunset Grill on 11/17/07
Deep golden with light chartreuse/crimson tints and no head (still). Clear, with strong, dense legs.
A smattering of cinnamon-like spices nip at the nose before a juicy, rich honey and maple aroma develops. Earthy, almost, dirty notes interrupt and are dashed away by a light vinousness and a vanilla finale. Really all over the place, though the alcohol is definitely felt and juicy red apples seem to pervade as well. Not sure what accounts for the dirty/earthy notes, but those are one of the few things attempting to balance the exceeding fruitiness/sugariness. Rather old and tired as well. Medium to medium-high strength of aroma. No flaws, but plenty of alcohol.
Red wine, elderberries and even some blood orange notes seep in to the richly sweet honey flavors, with more earthiness and almost something like tree bark. Vanilla is light on the finish, and is consumed by a bittersweet vinousness that is supplemented with alcohol warmth (dryness). Good, I guess....but it just seems like a Sam Smiths Impy stout. It seems wonderful at first, just like the jadwiga, but the more you drink, the more you come to appreciate the more natural, unpasteurized/unfiltered stuff. Seems pretty commercialized here.

Butelka, trójniak miód pitny, zdecydowanie czuć alkohol, jakby spirytus zmieszany z miodem. Czuć alkohol w przełyku.

Pours clear yellow, smell is honey, quite intense. Taste is intense honey, mild funk ( troguh the honey ) very silky MF. Very genlte, yet perhaps a bit unperfect in the subtility and silkyness.

phaleslu (9709) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Pour from a 750 ml bottle shared by STLWill - thanks again, Will! Pours a clear gold with no head. Good legs. Notes of honey, apple, plum, grape, wood - medium bodied, with low carbonatoin and a coating mouthfeel. Never even heard of chokeberry juice before, but it appears to be cutting it a bit. Sweet and smooth. Not as big as Jadwiga but decadent in its own right.

Butelka. Barwa jasna, słomkowa. Aromat miodowy, jabłkowy, słodki, z lekkim alkoholem. Smak bardzo słodki, miodowy, lekko wodnisty. Alkohol w smaku niewyczuwalny, ale wyraźnie rozgrzewający.
