SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2014
A deep red pour. Looks like black cherry koolaid. A faint potpourri aroma. Blackberry definitely dominates the flavor. It has a slight almost peppery tingle that it leaves on the back of your tongue. I cant pinpoint the flavor but overall nice mouthfeel.

douglas88 (9003) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2017
Bottle thanks to Bryan I think. Pours a reddish orange color with a small bubble head. A big apple and berry nose. Spicy notes dominate, I guess this is clove, smooth sweet apples, light berries. Quite nice.

60minuteman (1657) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Bottle. Clear ruby color no head. Smells like a Djarum. Clove, honey, berry and pepper. Tastes like a clove, honey, heat and a little sour. Syrupy but pretty smooth.

luttonm (6052) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Bottle at Portland tasting. Dark clear red. A few soap bubbles. Deepest fruity honey. Huge honey nose. Fruity, dark (something, cant read my notes). Very nice.

NikkTwist (3102) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2017 Sample draft at Bru Craft. Mostly clear very dark red purple pour. No head. Blackberry aroma. Plums. Acacia berries. Caramel. Heavy and succulent. Flavors are balanced but reads too syrupy sweet.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Aroma - berry, honey, clove, cinnamon, orange zest, and a slight must. Appearance - the body is a clean garnet red. The head is small and quickly rings out. The head is white in color. Very attractive. Taste - has blackberry, clove, cinnamon, orange zest, and honey. There is slight must. Palate - body is medium, texture is viscous, carbonation is soft, finish is sweet and spiced.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7634) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this mead poured a dark red-plum color with a medium sized foamy pink head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was cinnamon,nutmeg and clove. The flavor was berries, honey, nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. Long nutmeg and clove finish. Moderately full bodied. Nice.

N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Throw this in a red wine barrel for a few months! This beer is super delicious, looks amazing. Looks like a deep cranberry juice, with purplish, white fluffy/sticky head. A low abv for a mead, but I could definitely see myself slamming a couple of these back with someone who prefers their wine.
