[2492-20090926] Bottle. Spicy honey treacle aroma is a little spruce. Clear, light orange brown body with no bubbles. Sweet spruce wine flavour has a candy-like aftertaste. Thick medium body. Wow, that’s a kick to the teeth.

2009-09-26. Crisp golden body, headless. Syrupy legs on the glass. 3+ Alcoholic aroma, light florals, touch of leafy veg that I may be imagining after the server told me it has hops in it. 6+ Flavour is sweet, honey and florals, interesting something else, warming alcohol in the finish, sweet honey lingers. 7+ Smooth full bodied palate is lightly syrupy. Enjoyable in small quantities, but a five ounce pour was lots for two people to share, let only on your own! Interesting but just okay. Bottle at Three Floyd’s, Munster.

Very syrupy amber pour...clinging long on the sides of my snifter, as well as my sample glass! Very, very, very alcoholic nose, but some herbal, floral notes underneath that. Intensely sweet honey flavor, big (HUGE) alcohol, and lots of floral flavors. Massively sweet and alcoholic, with some moderate floral highlights. Good!
