We had the pleasure of tasting a few new meads from B. Nektar Meadery out of Michigan. B. Nektar makes a variety of meads, and we hope to get some of their still meads in soon. Right now, all that was available to us were the three you see pictured above: Black Fang, Necromangocon, and Zombie Killer. These are lightly carbonated meads, 6%abv, and come in 500ml bottles priced at $7.49.
Black Fang is a honey wine made with blackberry, clove, and orange zest added. I liked how lively this one was on the palate, and I’d consider this the ‘crowd pleaser’ of the bunch. The carbonation is there just enough to make it sparkle on the palate, and the blackberry adds a nice fruitiness without making it too sweet.
Necromangocon is made with mango and black pepper. The mango really shines, and the black pepper is subtle enough that it never gets out of hand and really brings the sweetness of the mango into balance.
Zombie Killer was my favorite. (In all fairness, being called Zombie Killer put it at the top of my list before I even tasted it, but its flavor really put it on the top podium.) It’s also unique from the other two in that it is an apple cider/honey wine. Crisp carbonation and a tart, jaw-clenching cherry note make this one a bit drier that the other two. Zombie Killer started as a one-time brew, but its popularity exploded and they decided to anchor it firmly in their year round offerings. I’m glad they did.
I highly recommend giving these a taste. For more info on what B. Nektar does, check out their website at BNektar.com.

“Raise your shot glasses for Kahlua Midnight – a 70 proof blend of rum and delicious black coffee liqueur. Shoot with friends, chase with orange and discover a new rum and coffee liqueur ritual. The night can begin when you want, but it all starts with Midnight… and it’s midnight somewhere. Let’s drink to that.”

We got two more Oktobefest beers today, and one seasonal from Great Lakes.
Left Hand Brewing’s Oktoberfest is very tasty, sweet up front but finishes dry. Atom Smasher by Two Brothers is a unique take on Oktoberfest because it is aged in oak giving it a fuller feel than many Oktoberfests. I think this was my top pick last year for best fall beers. Finally, Nosferatu by Great Lakes is a beer to bring to your Halloween party. They describe it as an imperial red ale with a bite, hence the Nosferatu vampire reference. These beers won’t be here long, I’ve already seen winter beers hitting the market. So get them while they’re in season!
We got in three new flavored whiskies today.
Jim Beam Maple, Jim Beam Red Stag Hardcore Cider, and Wild Turkey Spiced.
Jim Beam Maple: “…A perfect balance of warm aromas, a hint of charred oak, complete with a subtle and smooth caramel finish.” – JimBeam.com/Maple
Jim Beam Red Stag Hardcore Cider: “Fresh pressed apple cider balanced with subtle cinnamon and complemented with a mix of sweet caramel and vanilla.” – JimBeam.com/red-stag
And Wild Turkey Spiced is so new, it’s not even on Wild Turkey’s website yet. We’ll crack a bottle open and update this post later with a tasting note.
Too many to go into detail about:
Uinta Detour Double IPA, Cahoots Double Rye IPA, Tilted Smile Imperial Pilsner, and Labrynth Barrel Aged Quadruple Black Ale.
Uinta Wyld Extra Pale Ale, Trader Session IPA, HooDoo Kolsch, and Anniversary Barley Wine.
Crabbie’s Ginger Beer
