Rich red with noticeable viscosity. Aroma is blackberry, honey, wood, grape skins. Medium bodied, viscous mouthfeel, fruity on the palate with a lightly woody finish. Taste is blackberry, oak, honey. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle @ The Greenwald Residence. Blood red in color with a nice viscosity. Actually stained the bottle red. Very vinous and even tannic. Big woody character. Some booze, light fruit sweetness on the finish, but otherwise fairly dry, which is surprising. Has a slight butterscotch note to the finish. Maybe some watermelon rind. Definitely a bit of a let down.

Sample during the 10th Annual Day Before Labor Day Party on 09/06/2015. This Mead is a deep ruby-purple color with a minimal head and sticky legs on the glass. Aroma of honey and berries. Full-bodied with a vinous character flavors of blackberry and herbal honey. The finish is fruity with a lingering blackberry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Not my favorite from them but to be fair I don’t like dry meads or wines. Flavor is great and typical from them but the finish just isn’t my thing. Overall, very nice. alex021224 (17) - - AUG 15, 2015

2014 350ml bottle:

Taste: Blackberries (obviously), vanilla and not too sweet...very nice
Aroma: Dry red wine
Palate: Dry and medium body
Overall: I have heard that their is a bottle variation, this one was fantastic. lbnlaxer (28) - Canton, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Appears dark purple and hazy. Aroma is like an oaky red wine. If you love dry red wine, you will love this. Taste is incredibly dry and slightly fruity. fairly acidic. Leaves the mouth feeling dry and slightly oily. I really enjoy this mead. I think it would go perfectly with a heavy dinner - such as with a steak or pasta. Probably not something I would drink every day, but really lovely.
