2012 nip bottle received in trade. Clear caramel golden brown pour leaving plenty of legs on the glass with a swirl. Big complex sherry nose with plenty of maple, caramel, leather & minerals. Sweet, fruity & nutty taste. Plenty of raisins & pecans. Soft, round & oily mouthfeel. Incredibly complex between the nutty maple, fruity sherry & leathery oxidation. Delicious masterpiece! hackobock (4053) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 1, 2017

Poured a golden color from the bottle with aromas of vanilla, almonds, tons of maple syrup and sherry notes. Flavors matched the aromas a lot of sweet maple syrup with a light sherry finish, I wasn’t too sure about how this would work but god damn was this a great mead.

Maple creme chew is what this is, those candies. Lightly carbonated somewhat weird body but real tasty. Clear reddish brown pour no head. So much maple creamy aroma and taste. Hint of sherry. Sweet though. BiiruBierBeer (1056) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Honey, maple, and alcohol smell. Tasted like delicous pure maple syrup covered pancakes followed by a medium alcohol taste and mild alcohol warmth. Finishes with heavy toasted pecan notes that quickly replaces the alcohol taste, which was very nice. Feels like you’re drinking a really nice pancake breakfast. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 19, 2014
