Garagiste Meadery by Cilice

Late check-in (12/9). Might be their best one since Mead X; lots of winners to choose from, tho. Super fruity & deceptively strong. 4.5+.

B. Nektar Meadery by Apple Pi With Crust (2017)

Mike Z. is drinking an Apple Pi With Crust (2017) by B. Nektar Meadery at The Thirsty Topher

Thanks, Ron! I like the aroma & flavor, but it seemed a little thin & nondescript. The menu says it's on nitro; seems an odd nitro choice.

Good, but I enjoyed the Open Outcry coconut stout (from earlier tonight) more than this one & I never heard of that place until an hour ago.

Really solid. Very noticeable Oreo traits, aroma & flavor. I really like this. Not quite as otherworldly as some of their others, but great!

Literally had the last few drops in the bottle, but they were enough to make an impression. Tastes a lot like a brownie. Super smooth.

TY for letting me try this, Shawn - hoping to retry more later. Seemed to be pretty good, but was tough to analyze after Christmas Bomb!.
