Mead, 13.8% ABV.
It pours a clear deep golden colour, without any head.
The honey aroma is strong, and has a quite dark quality without crossing the border to burnt sugar or dark caramel.
It has a strong flavour of dark honey, this is very far from light heather honey. It feels quite nutty, but I’m not sure if that’s because it says so on the label… There is also a faint nail-polish remover background that I don’t like that much.
It’s a very sweet mead, without any additions to round the sweetness off, so it’s not exactly a session mead. It doesn’t have many flaws (except the hints of nail-polish remover), but still it’s no winner in my book.
Conclusion: a straightforward mead made from a special honey (with an off-taste)
