Thanks Brian for sharing this one. This bottle needs like some sort of nipple apparatus. its teeny tiny like a pacifier. Drink your medicine.

A - Reddish brown and completely still (duh).

S - Smells insanely good. a lot of wine tannins, oak, raspberries, cherry, clove.

T - Sweet, juicy, tastes really old like a decade. faded fruits, musty mold, oak barrel and liqueur .

M - Very thin mouthfeel, cloyingly sweet. lingering tobacco finish

O - Interesting but there are other meads Id rank much higher. Sorry guys.

Bottle from the 2009 winter solstice release from notes. Pours a reddish copper color with no head. The aroma and flavor have red wine, honey, caramel, wood, interesting combination and worth trying if you get the chance.

Rated on 7-27-2013. This bottled Mead pours a small head, has a transparent body and a reddish hue. The Aromas are sweet, honey, berries, and alcohol. This Meads taste is sweet, honey up front, dry, cherries, and the ABV comes through as well. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied Mead. Overall, this Mead is very quaffable, definitely worthy of a try and I not only would partake in another glass of this Mead, but highly recommend it if one likes Meads. Nice Mead, Kuhnhenn!!

This pours a violet hued maroon mead and is still. Very nice sweet berry nose. This is a nice dry mead with lots of berry flavors over a honey sweetness and some oak and chalk. Great berry mead.

This bottled brew from a rating party poured a head of no head bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a uncarbonated transparent brown colored body and a oily lacing. The nice aroma was malty and sweet. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a burning sweet aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of sweet and honey. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Red pour, no head. Flavors of red wine, grapes and honey. A real treat that I enjoyed more than some of the other Kuhn meads I have tried. I like the use of the wine.

Pour from a tiny bottle that kind of makes me feel like a giant. Ruby port red in color. Nose is mostly wine, red grapes with a hint of honey. Beautiful balance of red wine and honey sweetness. Would like to have this with some nice cheese and would like to have this in a 750 ml bomber!
