What is the best way to reduce the perceived sweetness level of a mead, preferably with minimal affect on the taste? I was shooting for a sweet, high ABV (~19%), hibiscus mead (similar to Viking Blod). The SG was 1.157 and it has been stuck at 1.052 for a month or two despite efforts to get it started again. I think it has good flavor with a slight alcohol burn to it, but it is very sweet. It's not cloyingly sweet, but still sweet (if that makes any sense). At this point, I would just like to maybe add something that will make it taste a little less sweet than it really is so that I can stabilize it and let it age for a while.
