From the bottle as part of a mead flight at Sunset Grill on 11/17/07
Deep bronze-yellow color with a flash of white bubbles on top. Medium-low leg density, still and clear.
I get medicinal, almost smokey phenols in the nose that arrive in stride with a brandy-like tartness. Smells like someone through a little grape juice in here, though it comes through rather harshly and aided by the medicinal phenols, it’s rather overpowering and brash. Dry wood and rather dry caramel notes top off the sweet honey, with a dull plastic note on the very end. Medium strength of aroma, fair amount of alcohol, some obvious fermentation flaws.
It starts out with a fairly respectable honey-meets-brandy flavor but grows alcoholic quickly, on the end. Slightly waxy/plasticy and with enough chewy honey texture, though the sweetness is sapped by the phenols and dry alcohol heat. Nothing particular fresh, elegant, rich or complex here.
750ml bottle 7/25/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-42° in Snifter-Pours golden with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of honey, floral, and slight wax. Taste of honey and spices. This light bodied mead is darn tasty. Probably the best one from Blue Dog. tchaos (428) - New York, USA - MAR 25, 2015

Starts off sweet and finishes dry. It’s interesting, most of the sweetness has been fermented out but still strong honey flavor. Isn’t one of the better meads I’ve had. Thanks mom. Tmoney99 (14850) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2013
