375ml bottle from jcwatts, cheers John. Poured a deep purple thick body with no carbonation and no head, it is a mead afterall. Aroma/flavor of honey, cherry, berries, the nose is sweeter than the flavor. Sticky and syrupy body with light heat on the end and a lingering sweetness.

Dark ruby color slightly muddy purple as well. Smell is dark cherry, blueberry, cheesey, sulfite, honey. Taste is moderately sweet fruity with a lot of cherry, blueberry and currant. Fairly boozy but the sweetness controls it. Very much a dessert in a bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
