Really pretty with a very burnt reddish orange color. This mead just smells insane. cinnamon cookies, apple, a little cherry pie. Insane. Cinnamon for days and days. Baked apple, sugar, brown sugar, maple, this is like the best dessert ever in a glass. the sticky oily nature of this lasts for days. Amazing. possibly the best cider ever made.

Bottle shared by AdamChandler. Thanks Adam! Pours golden brown, no head. Tart apple aroma. Flavor is amazing. Tart apple, maybe a hint of raisin. Hard to describe, but really tasty. Chalumeaux (1555) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Poured from bottle thanks AdamChandler medium deep amber. Aroma is awesome apple flavor. Taste is apple caramel and vanilla. This is quite drinkable. Heather_B (256) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 28, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015 Dark orange pour. Strong sweet aroma. Tons of apples in smell and taste. Flavor is apples with some extra earthiness. Delicious. popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 27, 2015
The cider is a medium to deep amber. Good clarity. Flat. The aroma has a full apple flavor. Caramel and juicy fruitiness. A bit woody. Vanilla. A little bit of spice, like a mild cinnamon. Big, full, complex sweetness in the taste. Caramel, brown sugar. Deep, rich sweetness. Very interesting. Full mouthfeel. Mild bitterness. Some woodsy edge to it. It’s sorta sticky but the flavors work with it well.

Flavor is very sweet with a ton of apple character. Some medium spiced apple notes. Nice caramelization with light red apple skin character. Light green apple notes. A bit overripe.
Mouthfeel is full bodied with no carbonation. Low astringency and moderate alcohol warmth.
Overall, a very nice cider. Great complexity with some spice, green and red apple meat and tannins from the skin. A light caramelization and overripe fruit note. fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
Corked bottle, tasting at Matt’s, vintage 2005, L060807Ferris (15272) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2015
Dark amber color. Infinite fruitiness permeates the aroma. Very sweet, yet agile, sour to the right level, astringent in the final.
No matter what, La Face Cachée de la Pomme always has the best.
Bottle - Dark rich caramel, almost light charred barrel and over ripe apple. Clear copper. Caramel apple and hints of toasted wood. Very little if any acidity or tartness, just a warm wonderful sweet viscous liquid. Very enjoyable. mcberko (17829) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2015
375mL bottle, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a few white bubbles as head. Aroma is complex as hell, with loads of caramelized apples and medium sweetness. Flavour is complex, with loads of rich caramelized apples, toffee, and medium sweetness. Elegant, sweet and complex – an ice cider of the usual luxuriousness of Le Face Cachee de la Pomme. Amazing.
