The Northman happily drank, practically inhaled, the sweet honey coloured and flavoured liquid. He'd visited the cold, dark cellar almost daily since he'd set the barrel to age just before the cold snap covered the Court in a blanket of white powder and he'd had to pry himself away from the room on every single occasion. Finally, the temptation had been too strong and he'd dipped a crudely carved cup into the cask and brought up a generous cupful of mead.
