Black Is Beautiful

Black Is Beautiful: This Dark Mead is inspired by the Black Is Beautiful Initiative. Marcus Baskerville, head brewer/founder of Weathered Souls Brewery, San Antonio Texas originated the concept. http://weatheredsouls.beer/the-crew
Enjoy the dark honey aroma and flavor of this mead which is reminiscent of an aged Russian Imperial Stout with a heavy dark fruit note but light on roast. First we added a small portion of buckwheat honey. Next we added dark Belgian candy syrup at various stages. When a RIS ages it often gains more fruit notes, a thinner body and becomes more vinous. The candy syrup helped enhance these characteristics without using grains. Think of an aged Russian Imperial Stout crossed with a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. This mead is actually dry but finishes smooth and warm at 14% ABV
