Served chilled into a tulip.

Pours an extremely dark sable color almost to the point of being black, much darker than I was expecting. Half inch of light brown head that slowly recedes with moderate surface layer and lacing.

Aromas of a musty, fruity sweetness with a hint of smoke and alcohol.

Flavor is again that musty sweetness from the mead, hint of smoke and it took me a while to place the fruit flavor, but to me it had a strong flavor of honeydew melon.

Medium bodied with a sweet, somewhat cloying finish. Moderate carbonation and aftertaste.

Overall an interesting brew, but not something I would search out again.
