3.86/5 rDev -0.8%
Perhaps not unsurprising, I am not clear exactly how the style should play out, but...
A: nice clear copper-brown color, with a head that took an effort to produce, but sustained nicely after poured,
S: obvious honey, but some toffee as well. I also get what reminds me a little of instant lemon tea, but I can almost guarantee that's just me.
T/M: the honey backs a light toasty flavor, taking over the taste pretty quickly. From there, there isn't much of an obvious change, to me. The honey taste fades, and I get a little apple and a hint of pine at the end. That pine taste also brings about a burnt sugar taste. None of these are strong as the carbonation hat plays on the tongue to provide more of a distraction from the mead flavors than the other flavors I get.
O: my first sip of this overpowered me with sweetness. On my second sip, with perhaps my buds adjusted, it was obviously not something I was going to drain-pour as syrup. That said, it was still an interesting beer that reminds me a lot of a hopped-up hard cider in its opening sweetness and an overly sweet barley wine in its dark sugar ending.

Poured chilled in flared ale glass; this review shared with buzzlitebeer
A: very good carbonation but little head; dark amber color, a bit of orange and dark honey in appearance; lacing ok
S: honey, fruit
T: honey, malt; not complex; some spicing (unidentified); clean finish; quite sweet; very little bitterness--probably not much in the way of hops
An amazing dessert beer
