Bright light amber color. Umami aromas and flavors of soy marinated mushrooms, suede, clay and crayon, and fig paste with a round, soft, dryish medium body and a warming, complex, long fleur de sel, reduced nectarines, peppery spices, and roasted almonds finish. A rich, warming barrel-aged mead that drinks like a Palo Cortado Sherry.

Serve in a Goblet
The term "sack" is rarely used today. Often these meads will simply be labeled as fortified. This cateogry of mead typcailly ranges in alcohol from 14% to as much as 18%. Fortified meads require a greater concentration of fermentable sugar, which commonly results in a mead with a greater honey character, body, and of course, alcohol.
