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.

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.
