This mead definitely has a bitter, medicinal, almost plastic like aroma. As long as you don't inhale when drinking it won't ruin the flavor...however there's not much flavor to ruin.
Definitely avoid using the mulling spices as they just add way too much clove for their own good.

Isn't that kinda the point though? (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/smile.gif)

I've only had it once -- at a renn faire (don't ask) -- and I have to agree with the haters. Bad stuff. Made me wonder how much money I could make if I got the mead concession to the faire. Then I realized I'd probably have to actually attend the thing to serve the mead. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/crazy.gif)

Just last night I found a new store that has a much wider variety of beer and wine than I'd known we could get locally. They had a few varieties from Red Stone, and Chaucer's. I knew from past experience that Chaucers was more sweet than I'd care for. If I'd not known that I'd have known, as a mead maker, by reading the label that something was "off." It advises that it be consumed as soon after purchase as possible so it wouldn't loose it's honey flavor.

Well made mead gets better and better over time. It isn't as prone as grape wines to loose drinkability. Any mead company that advises against aging, is highly suspect in my book.
