Ok I wanted to give everyone an update. It is just shy of 4 months and I couldn't help to crack one 11oz bottle. One of the things I was hoping was that since I used a lot of yea. There would be enough tannins to offset the sweetnes of the drink. I must say when you drink this the first thing is NOT how sweet it is. The taste is unique. A very smooth and slightly herbal with a hint of fruity background. Not really like caramel or burnt marshmallow but just a "creamy" "candyish" taste. It is really hard to describe. The one thing I wish there was less of was the alcohol hot. That was really presant but that was to be expected with a young mead. I am very pleased with this. I hate sweet drinks but this one is very drinkable.
