375 mL bottle. Deep red. Looks very dark in the glass. Smells of blackberry. Sweet blackberry. Honey. A little bit of that blackberry earthen aroma. Tastes of sweet honey and blackberry up front. Hint of tartness, but nothing like what blackberry often produces. Dry, tannic, and earthy finish. Medium body. Bone dry in the back end. Itís not my favorite fruit addition to these meads.

375 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the mead pours a very dark reddish/purple color with no head at all. Aroma is nice, it smells like blackberry jam, blackberries, honey and a bit of booziness. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with the blackberry jam flavor being stronger compared to the others. Thereís also a bit of earthiness, too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full and a bit syrupy, and itís also smooth and easy to drink with low carbonation. I think itís a pretty good mead, but with that being said Iíve liked everything Iíve tried from Schrammís so far. Definitely worth trying! $24.99 a bottle.

Very nice mead, the blackberry comes through amazingly, I donít understand the low rating on this one because itís a fantastically balanced semi sweet mead with amazing mouthfeel.
