still, sweet, standard strength. clear faint reddish pink body. rose hip perfume, cocoa powder, flower-scented oil and generic berry fruit esters; low alcohol in the nose and mostly goes unnoticed in the flavor, which helps. its a bit opaque, blurred and dull together. the cocoa is soft and complimentary but the honey expression more dull.

It may be because I was freezing my tuckus off at DLD when I picked this up from the The LoSBD table first thing in thew morning, but this went down great. A chocolate mead? I imagined it was going to be sickeningly sweet, but I liked it. It had a very pale golden body and seemed just a bit thin. The aroma had a light honey sweetness, a soft dried floral scent, and just a touch of chocolate. The chocolate seemed more prominent in the flavor, but it melded well with the dry honey sweetness and lingered into the finish. Interesting.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Bottle donated by Wild Blossom at HOPS Oktoberfest. Pours a deep gold, minimal brown hints. Noes is quite floral, nice honey notes, light tart note. Some faint soft chocolate notes as well. On taste, softly sweet, some balancing acidity. Nice floral honey profile as well. Not super deep, but well balanced.

Sampled at the Blarney Stones Solstice Beer Fest, Oak Forest, IL. Wow! A sweet chocolate mead! Do I need to say more, well, all right. Color is a little pinkish. Good milk chocolate smell, but my nose is acting up, so I may not have gotten the best impression. And so, too, it is full of chocolate flavor. An impression of milk, maybe from the honey sweetness. Quite possibly the best alcoholic beverage with chocolate that Ive found.

Thanks to the LoSBD for not only putting on DLD (thanks for the clusterf*ck guys), but providing a table to showcase the local meads. This one pours a clear water yellow color. That nose. umm ... I hate to sound ungrateful .. but it is seriously horrible. Nothing but plastic tubing. Rubbing alcohol, rubber. Just terrible. I could only hope that flavors are better, and they are but not by too much. I think only a little of that plastic tubing seeped into the flavor but there was enough sweet honey to back it up. The chocolate is barely noticeable. Only a dry dusting of bakers chocolate just before the finish.
