Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Clear orange body, no head. Nose is caramel, vanilla, coconut, honey and hints of nuts and toffee. Taste is toffee, cream, coconut and hints of caramel, vanilla and honey. Sweet, yet balanced and very nice. The extensive aging on this bottle (7+ years) has done it well. Inbreak (6522) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2016
07.10.2016, 6 oz bottle (2008 vintage) @ BBGTC vintage mead tasting:GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 6, 2016
Tiny bubbly shortlasting head, slightly golden caramely color. Aroma is slightly sweet and fresh, sour-ish coconut, honey, minerals, pineapple, caramel, oak, sour cream. Taste is slightly sweet mineraly, honey, minerals, hay, coconut, grass, paper, caramel, pineapple. Slightly watery and mineraly mouthfeel. Nice.
Bottle shared at Woodshop 10 thanks to richiesd. Clear amber pour, good legs upon swirl. Big coconut cake nose, super rich. Flavor is more mild, some sweet coconut cake, low caramel, flan, not too sticky. Quite nice and really not over the top and certainly not too sweet or boozy. tchaos (441) - New York, USA - DEC 18, 2015
6oz bottle courtesy of meadme. Pours a still, clear, deep copper. Aroma of toffee, caramel, vanilla, and toffee. Taste is a slightly-oxidized (hey, it’s 5+ years old), well balanced blend of caramel, coconut, vanilla, and spice. Medium body with mild alcohol finish.

Bottle 12 fl oz at Sweet & Sour, Sätila, 2014-08-30. Thanks to _angst_! Marked 12% ABV, but feels a whole lot more like the RB stated 16%!tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
The name makes it sound absolutetly disgusting, but tried to sample and rate it with an open mind still.
Clear deep golden color, no head. Sweet, alcohol, citrus, coconut flakes scent, toasted coconut and bread crust. Sweet, alcohol, honey, coconut taste. Alcohol aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, no bitterness. A bit like the drinking version of the chocolate bar Bounty. Way better than I expected it to be by the name, still way too boozy and goes more to candy bar than drinking mead for me.
Bottle, pours clear orange amber. Aroma is caramel sweet coconut. Flavor is as aroma, maybe too sweet and too much coconut... kind of drinking sun tan lotion. _angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle received in trade. Thank you lionsandbeer! US rating 1000! Pours deep golden with no head and subtle legs. Smell is sweet with honey, coconut milk, caramel, alcohol, milk chocolate, coconut liqueur, hay and toasted coconut. Taste is sweet with honey, caramel, county bar, alcohol, hay, milk chocolate, pineapple and amaretto. Mouthfeel is round, slightly sticky sweet, tiny watery, boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet with honey, caramel, coconut milk, hay, bounty bar, alcohol and hints of toast coconut and charred wood. Really really sweet which works with the components. Bit too boozy and a tad bit too light in the body perhaps. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
