The stuff is actually good now. One year of aging did the trick and now I will mail it out to who ever pm's me their address. Check out the scrumpy thread for my lastest review.

jesus, can coffee save me?

I think it already has on numerous occasions, and I think God sends me headaches if I go without it too long

I'd take one but isn't overseas shipping bloody expensive? I'd feel I'd have to send you lots of stuff in return.

yeah me too, I'd love one but feel really bad for the cost! Maybe you could send it by boat, by which time it'd be vintage.

Hey Scabby, does Sweden allow private (personal) import of alcohol?

Same for me, I'd definitely love some but it might get rather expensive. If that's not a problem, yes please! :beer:

Er...

I guess not.

Just pack it up in packets of white powder and I'm sure the customs people won't notice.

I'll have to see what deals FedEx, UPS, and the postal service all offer.

I'll have one. I can send you a bottle of something good in return.

I plan to try mine tonight. I might run it through a coffee filter first though.

All right. Ran the first bit through a coffee filter to remove some of the larger floating bits. Still extremely cloudy. Yellow with a hint of green in colour.

The aroma is all apples (very strong) with the alcohol lurking in the background. The taste, however, reminds me most of a very dry champagne or other white wine. No sweetness at all, which is what I'd come to expect from the (probably crappy) mass-produced ciders I'd had before. My wife can apparently detect a hint of what she describes as "bacon", but I'm convinced it's psychosomatic. The next bit I'll have will not go through a filter, to prove my masculinity to Laz.

I think that the scrumpy is probably best around cellar temperature (mid 50s F)

Colder and you start to lose some of what makes this different.

It's definitely quite enjoyable. :beer:

Yeah, definitely cool not cold.
