Had this at room temperature first. Pours honey golden. Smells floral, sweet. Honey, alcohol, spices, hint of hops. Tastes of honey and fruit. Honey, plum, spices, bit of hops, alcohol. Feels viscous in the mouth, finishes with bite of alcohol and spiced honey, again with touch of hops. Delicious.

Pretty good stuff. Sweet and strong. Aroma is honey, brandy, oak, tobacco. Flavor’s similar to nose, with sweet on top, followed by those other qualities. Even has a bit of burn in the finish, which I kind of like. Very clean. Maybe for sipping after dinner in hot weather, otherwise a dream come true for cold weather.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells of honey, leather, and alcohol, some faint floral notes. Taste is mainly honey, some dried fruit/raisins, a bit of boozy warmth at the back. Shame that it’s May, this would be amazing in the winter. Excellent either way.

70 cl bottle @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg.Aroma has chlorine, some honey tones and mild alcohol tones. Also bad homemade white wine. Flavour has rather sweet and strong honey notes, mild chlorine and hints of root beer. Hides the ABV well - alchol kicks in the finish though. Liquid honey.

Intensiver Honiggeschmack, leider ist so auch die Süße relativ stark. Wenig süffig, geschmacklich nicht besonders aber solide. 9/8/9/9/10/10

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 02-23-2013 at RBWG. This mead pours a small head and has a pale yellow body. The aroma is honey, apples and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma along with a dry finish. The mouthfeel is carbonated and this mead is medium bodied. A tasty mead that is easy drinking even at 19%ABV.
