Clear straw yellow color, no head. Vanilla, kladdkaka scent, some alcohol. Kladdkaka, dry, alcohol taste. Custard aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, no bitterness.
A bit like some sort of dessert.

Bottle, pours clear golden. Aroma is sweet caramel honey. Flavor is sweet vinous boozy dry yet a bit sweet vanilla and astringent at the finish. HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Sweet honey, loads of vanilla bean, bourbon, boozy, mouthfeel is typical of a mead (which is to say I’m not a fan but won’t give it below a 3 because it’s just a style thing). I think the flavors are pretty good but it’s hard to drink a lot of this one for me. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Rating from 2012 backlog. Pours yellow with no head. The nose is bourbon, honey, oaky vanilla. The taste is pretty much the same as the nose with some honeycomb in the finish. Oily bodied. Nice mead. 4.0 Drake (13739) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Recent vintage shared by jackl. Thanks! Pours a clear golden color, moderate legs. Aroma of intense vanilla, honey, bourbon, booze, floral notes, mild earth and fruity notes. The taste is vanilla, honey, earth, melon, stone fruits, citrus, whiskey. Medium bodied, very, very hot. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle, cheers to JohnnieNepal! The pour’s medium gold. No head. Looks like concentrated white grape juice. The nose is strong vanilla toffee candy. Strong bourbon barrel. Hot woody vanilla extract. The taste is really hot. Strong honey and vanilla, little room for subtlety. The heat on the finish borders on the astringent. Full body, oily. No carbonation. Overall, solid, but this could definitely do with some cooling down.
