2012 Vintage
Tasted on 8/31/13 from a capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to JR for bringing this one. Pours clear pale yellow with no head, much like a white wine. The nose is absolutely fantastic. It smells just like fresh-off-the-griddle french toast with plenty of cinnamon and all of the beautiful caramel and maple bourbon in the background. There is a bit of heat on the nose and just a touch of hazelnut coming through. On the palate, it is almost the same with just the right amount of sweetness, a ton of french toast and the bourbon nuttiness on the back of the palate. The body is full with no carbonation and a long finish featuring the bourbon and hazelnut.

Bottle from a trade from a while ago. Definitely not still as label indicates. Moderate carbonation. Light cinnamon spicing and modest bourbon barrel character. No banana or maple character. Good. It past its prime.

This smells like one of the best sweet breakfasts youve ever had. The taste is a little prickly. I wanted it more syrupy to go on with the syrup aroma. Flavor is light compared to smell it best I can remember having from Kuhnhenn yet.

07.10.2016, 6 oz bottle (2012 vintage) @ BBGTC vintage mead tasting:
No head, light golden color. Aroma is almond pudding, almond essence, medicine, burnt caramel, toast. Taste is slightly dry and harsh mineraly, almond essence, almond pudding, minerals, toast, burnt caramel, honey, medicine. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh medical mouthfeel. Probably faded a lot. Not all bad, there are something nice in it as well.

(12oz bottle) clear very light yellow, excellent lacing. Nose of wildflower, honey, banana, spices, French toast, light bourbon. Taste is equally complex, banana, touch of bourbon, medium sweet, no heat at all despite the 16%, winter spices, quick palate finish but delicious and complex.

kermis (11629) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle shared, 2012 vintage. Pours clear golden with a few bubbles that disappear quickly. Aroma of spice upfront, Christmas spices, cinnamon, hazelnut coming out, honey, floral notes, light perfume, banana, oak, toffee and vanilla. Flavour is light heavy sweet. Warming in the palate and the finish, you can tell the alcohol is there but its not in a nasty way. It comes across slightly watery in the start but quickly develops into a heavy spice and long sweet middle/finish with some raisin and overripe dark fruit aspects coming out. On of the most complex meads Ive tried.
