Darker, golden orange color. Good ABV legs to this.
Nose is cinnamon, orange peel, peach, apple, apple butter, spice, and oak
Taste is orange blossom, peach, apple, apple butter, spices, cinnamon, oak, and honey.
Maybe a touch too sweet and spiced. Good mead for a cold night. nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle. Dark golden mead. Aroma of honey, apple, ripe peaches and cinnamon. Mmm the flavour is silky smooth honey, apple, cinnamon and spice mix. Warm and smooth finish. A nice find. luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2006
2 oz. sample in a snifter at the International Mead Fest in Boulder, CO. Mead poured a clear, dark amber color. The aroma was full of warmth and comfort-food evoking notes: cognac, honey, and warm apple butter dominated. The flavor was heavily sweet, trace acidic and lightly bitter with a great, warm heavily bittersweet finish full of cinnamon retros. The body was full, the texture was creamy and there wasn’t any carbonation with a moderate amount of alcohol warmth. I’d definitley seek this one out on the shelf.
