Used to get on draft believe it or not. Never rated for some reason. But it always poured a reddish gold with no head. Big honey aroma with some mild citrus and the hibiscus. The body was thick and oily but finishes dry in flavor due to the hops. Not very boozy but well done overall.

The first thing that I noticed about this was the container it is in; a nice ceramic bottle which just goes to show that appearances are important and the producers know it. Opening the bottle, I was greeted with a wonderful scent of honey first off, with lighter hibiscus and hop tones in the back. Finally, was the ever-present scent of alcohol, and since this is a 19% Alc/Vol beverage, it is no wonder why it is strong. Moving on to taste, the first thing I noticed was the sharp alcohol taste that usually dissuades me from most drinks with that noticeable burn. However, it hooked me in with the sweet after taste. Honey sits well on the tongue, circling on the palette with the hops and hibiscus playing the wonderful accompaniment. I can only imagine that this would be a perfect aperitif or a fantastic dessert wine, if used in the upper-class sense of dining.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 18, 2015
This mead pours a slightly hazy straw color with a slight pinkish hue, and there is no head. There is a lot of booze (and I mean a lot of hot, solventy alcohol) in the nose, but there are slight notes of honey sweetness, floral hops, and hibiscus flowers. The taste is quite boozy, quite sweet, and a touch sour with an finish that is hot with some residual sweetness, and the palate fuses an oily texture, medium-light body, and a flat carbonation.
