Thanks to Ashton & Chris for sharing after the Great Taste. Dark purple sanguine appearance. Dark cherry and currants in the aroma, rich and not super sweet. Taste has a nice depth to it, black cherry skin tannin plus it back from being overly sweet. Rich and decadent though balanced, with little to no trace of the abv.

Perfection in a bottle.
Cherry aroma is amazing.
Nice blackberry and raspberry notes as well. A fair amount of alcohol in the nose but drinks amazing smooth.
A perfect balance between tartness and the sweetness of the mead. ctipping (2180) - Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2016
375 mL bottle. Batch 3. Pours a deep red. Smells of currants primarily. Honey. Some cherry jamminess. Taste has tart raspberry, deep sour currants, and a sweet cherry flavor. Honey sweetness is well balanced with the acidic fruits. Heavy and sweet. Awesome. BrandNewBrew (51) - - OCT 31, 2016
Thanks Ryan! Epic Halloween share! Wow, so amazingly delicious. Aroma is strongly blackcurrant and cherry, with sweet honey. Flavor is beyond anything i’ve had before, incredible full-on fruit flavor. Big, bold, and absolutely delicious. Honey flavor shows on the back end and is equally as incredible as the fruit. Extremely well balanced, acid and sweetness is spot on. May be a tad sweet, but to me it’s perfect. Crazy good. alex021224 (17) - - OCT 27, 2016
