Bamsen78 (5304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear copper brown with thick oily laces. Clear aroma of honey with roasty and herbal notes. Tastes of honey and flowers, sweet going sourish. Warming alcohol in the finish. Lingering sweet and roasty aftertaste. Good, though way past the BBD.

heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 27, 2011
0.75 l bottle courtesy of Marko, huge thanks for sharing this one. It poured darker brown body with nice thick legs. Strong aromatic caramel, raisins and honey aroma. Sweet. Flavor was pretty much different, strangely sour beyong that honey and oak domination, seeming cheesy and artificial, though I admit it’s not. Finishes shortly and sharply with acidic note left while slowly warming. Not bad, but I wasn’t that impressed at all.

Courtesy of Marko; handbottle
The color is dark brown, possibly the darkest Mead I ever had. The aroma is mellow, mature, with raisins; and mild wood.
The body is bold; the flavor has a lot of raisins, very close to a Porto wine; it’s very sweet but not syrupy; there is a good degree of acidity and a nice fruity presence (berry juice); the final has a very light astringency, perceived on the teeth; the alcohol comes through, clearly, warming, but well blended.
Excellent. It crosses styles with Pedro Ximénez wines (the raisin character) and Porto wines.

Marko (5553) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 16, 2011
Bottle from the Weyn’s in Leuven.
Poured a dark amber-brown body. Complex nose, prošek, raisins, dried figs, sweet and lovely. Prošek in the taste again, carob, vinuous acidic notes, near the finish. Full body. Cherries dipped lightly in alcohol (not much of it but is still warming near the end). Ok, this owns. More complex than I thought it would be and well worth the price (13 Euros? not sure)

yespr (44223) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2008
75 cL bottle, thanks to MiP, came as Weyn’s mede hydromel. Pours dark brown with bobbly off-white head. Thick chocolate, alcohol, dark honey accent and spiced aroma. Sweet fruity and honey flavoured, slight woody and cane sugarish turn into a sweet and lingering finish. Ends with a light fruity and canesugarish finish. Lovely!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2007
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of MiP. Pours a clear, dark, chestnut brown. Fat aroma of honey, dried fruit and port. Medium body, very complex aromas rum, port, dried- and overripe fruit - all the way with an underlying but never too dominating sweetness. Excellent. 230807

rauchbier (3872) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle, from a shop in Antwerpen. Jet Black, no head or condition. Big sweet honeyed nose with obvious alcohol and herbal liquorice that becomes slightly tarry, honey sweet and fruity but quite soft in the mouth with a tart edge and quite apparent alcohol, long sticky sweet honeyed finish with some smokey burnt notes and retronasal alcohol

Bottled. Big thanks to mip who brought this to Göteborg. Chestnut colour. There are notes of tar, alcohol and cherry-wine. Old-ish mouthfeel with notes of(sour-sweet) cherries. Alcohol is not at all sensed in flavour. Body was thin to medium.
