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.

anstei (2510) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Sampler. Pours darkest red. Aroma is red fruit, berry, blackberry, some earth. Body is sweet and heavy and sticky, super fruity, blackberry, also honey and flowers, sour. Incredibly intense and balanced and drinkable. Long sweet berry palate. Amazing how such a thick viscous fluid can be so drinkable. Great!

Sampled at Best Western Woerden, courtesy of SinH4, thanks a lot Stefan! Clear, very dark red. Sweetish, quite fruity aroma of honey, raspberry and redcurrant. Intensely sweet, rather fruity taste of honey, redcurrant and raspberry, followed by a long, intensely sweet and slightly warming finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, flat. Great stuff, very intense and delicious!

SinH4 (6113) - Garching b. M?nchen, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2017
Bottle sample, many many thanks Benzai! Dark purple color with no head. Aroma is intense csssis, blackcurrant, just a bit of honey, a touch herbal, cinnamon, syrupy, very concentrated. Taste is blackcurrant at first, then the honey character takes over, with all the forest flavours, flowery, apples, tannic warming finish, some spicy earthy flavours as well. Thick viscous mouthfeel with no carbonation. Long aftertaste of blackcurrant. Awesomesauce!

Bottle from trade, sample shared @ Borefts Hotelroom with SinH4. Cheers Stefan! Insane deep dark red to purple color, no head. Aroma reminds me of dark syrupy concentrated blueberry or blackberry juice. Tastes a bit like that as well. Mixed with honey, notes of apple, forest fruit. Nice!
