Bottle from AFH. Some sediment. It’s a peach yellow color. Still nice legs. Smells fantastic. It has a load of delicate vanilla but heavily dominating. You can smell it across the room. I even smell the booze. Whoa. A load of delicious vanilla. In fact, there’s even some peach and apple here. Hmmm. Even traces of cinnamon.
Delicious but a load of booze. AirForceHops (7680) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 3, 2017
375 ml bottle. mostly clear gold with just a few light particles floating. Aroma is soft vanilla, subtle floral, easy honey. The flavor is a reflection of the aroma with the booze showing slightly. I consumed at room temperature and even with the booze, it has nice flavor. Cimbasso (975) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2017 Sampled in a wine glass. A clear pale yellow similar in appearance to a Riesling wine. Intensely sweet with very strong flavours of honey and vanilla. Cloying, oily mouthfeel. A pleasant after-dinner drink but very sweet and strong, so probably not one for most beer drinkers! daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Sparkling gold pour. Nice sweet floral honey intertwined with smooth vanilla notes. Sweet but not too syrupy. Has a slight dry finish. Enjoyable mead. annunz123 (963) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Honey and alcohol in the aroma. Flavor is heavy alcohol with a little vanilla and spice in the finish. More a liqueur than a mead (or beer), and a pretty harsh one at that.

Bottle from Beer Run. Pours a crystal clear bronze color, no head, strong legs. Aroma of honey, citrus, vanilla bean, earth, dust, dry must, heavy booze. The taste is intense honey and vanilla, citrus, lemongrass, booze, burnt sugar and an almost woody character in the finish. Medium-full bodied, very hot. Quite nice. 50th mead rating!
