COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Many years ago, a mysterious book was discovered by a group of friends in a Ferndale, MI basement. A translation of its contents revealed the recipe for an ancient beverage using mango juice, honey, and black pepper. What they didnt realize was that creating the beverage had dire consequences. Stricken by fear after its compleation, the friends tried to contain the terrifying forces into this very bottle. Once opened, however, no one can say for sure if it can be conquered. Defend your soul or join us...

Holmen1 (5099) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2016
Fra flaske p Mi2 Cardinal nov-16: luter og smaker honning, never, bjrkeskudd og har i tillegg et snev av pepper. Klar lys, nesten fargels og s og si uten skum. Svrt delte meninger rundt bordet om denne.

muzzlehatch (4876) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2016
500 ml bottle from Valli Produce in Rockford, IL, served out of the fridge in a White Winter Winery stem glass. Fizzes a bit, produces no head atop the big-bubbled pale straw body....nose is full of black pepper and intense farmy character - really could not tell its a mead, or any other particular kind of alcoholic beverage, from this nose; it reminds me actually of an intense peppery vegan mushroom dish I used to get years ago at a Korean restaurant in Chicago; I quite like it, but its an odd aroma coming out of a honey-wine....body is thankfully somewhat less peppery, though the spice is still present; I can taste a bit of the sweet mango and honey of course, though it is difficult to get past the spicy aroma, and by the back end the pepper has come back full force, giving an almost corrosive character to the finish and going down...lightly syrupy body, faint carbonation. This is a fascinating beverage, Im glad to have it and can honestly say that I "like" it overall - but I will likely never buy it again. Really cool idea, but I dont want a mead burning my throat very often.
