COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after one boisterous Scottish wench who successfully defended the Scottish Castle of Dunbar during a five-month siege by William Montague, the Earl of Salisbury. Grown in the British Isles for over five hundred years and used by herbalists since the middle ages, the black currants in this dessert mead pay tribute to Black Agnes, our kind of girl.

Bottle. It poured a dark purple color with no head. The aroma was of berries, honey, wine and some light florals. The taste was similar to the aroma with more berries, honey, wine, booze and florals. Just awesome.

TST/TWAT. Bottle shared at svartvitís. Massive thanks to kermis for the trade. Dense deep burgundy. No head. Huuuge black currant. Sweet dark honey. So much fruit, so rich. Light spices, rosemary. Massive sweet, light nutty bitter. Full body, no carbonation, silky supple. So densely fruity itís insane. Full fruity, whatever is not fruity is beautifully filled in by delicious sweet floral dark honey. Amazing.

pushkinwow (2769) - Ottawa, CANADA - FEB 22, 2017
Batch 3, opened up on my daughterís birthday (who just happened to be named Agnes). She enjoyed it very much. As did I. Dark amethyst pour. Sweet black currant, dark raspberry, blackberry, somewhat jammy with a hint of a musty undertone at first. Full bodied with a hint of tartness on the finish that cuts through the otherwise sweet but not overbearing mead, becomes a bit dry and just wow. This is damn good.

From bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares Aaron & DBH returns. Pours deep blood red with no head. Aroma of nice wild honey, black currants, sweet vinous notes, fruit concentrate and vanilla. The taste is sweet and elegant. Easy drinkable with lots of honey and black currants. Vanilla, red sweets, almost toffee like sweetness as well and a slight tart vinous end. impossible to dislike.
