Bottle thanks to eric. Thick deep golden body and strong legs. Aroma is minty with hibiscus, eucalyptus, alcohol and various german schnapps. Taste is alcohol, earthy, herbal, hibiscus and tobacco. Big. Despite liking this, I think I had a bit of an allergic reaction to it as some of my fellow tasters noticed my face go from normal colored to a bright red with in 30 seconds of the first sip. Maybe I have a problem with hibiscus.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Good lord, this is beautiful- a golden organge reddish blood color. The arom is also great- lots of honey, of course, but also tropical flowers. The flavor is great- really fills your mouth but is still smooth. Not as heavy as the Royal Empire Mead, and much easier to drink. I really loved this. Bottle from Knightly Spirits, Orlando.

dwyerpg (6014) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Absolutely wonderful mead. Sweet and strong, its dominated by the honey. The only knock really is that perhaps it seems just a tad bit too alcoholic, but mostly this is great stuff. A bit expensive as well.

Shared by bhensonb. Pours clear honey with no head and a honey and alcohol aroma. This is all about honey, with a warm alcohol trail. The hibiscus adds a floral feeling. Its delicious.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Bottle from the Beer Engine. My first mead so maybe my numbers are a little skewed. I love the label, the bottle, the unpackaging of this, my first mead. The color is a beautiful golden amber, unctuous against the glass like a thinner cognac. The aroma is so complex: honey, grass, a little musty like the inside of a hive or a dried up comb. The flavor is sweet, boozy with a silky mouth feel. Warmed, the flavors are even silkier. Talk about a winter warmer, the warmth down the throat relaxes the body and makes you want to snuggle down in blankets by a fire.
