hawthorne00 (2826) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2010
2009 bottle. Almost opaque amber with a lovely honeyed cream head that disappears completely after a time. Intense pepper and cloves yield to complex fruity malts - peaches, dried apricots, autumnal apples - and woody hops (dulled resin, citrus). Noticeably astringent although the mouthfeel is oily. Underneath there’s mild dried peach/ cider sweetness with drying spicy bitterness. Alcohol seems well integrated until it catches in the throat at the end. Interestingly even goat’s cheese in olive oil didn’t dull the astringency or the spirituous burn all that much. Another Dupont beer where some of the charm is rustic.

wyzzywyz22 (2102) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2010
75cl bottle from Rainhall Drinks Co, Rainhall. A hazy amber pour, with a decent sized and lingering white head. The nose was funky with plenty of belgian yeast and hints of spices and citrus fruit. Pretty lively mouthfeel. Characterful flavour that offered some nice sweetish fruit , more yeast, booze, then hit some sourish notes. This ’beautiful eye’ didn’t immediately grab me but as I got deeper into the bottle I found plenty to like here.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2010
750 ml bottle at the Cleveland summer tasting of 2008. Pours a nice deep coppery amber with an ok head and nice lace. Aroma is light sweet toasted biscuity malts, crackery and a floral phenolic DuPont yeastiness with some sea foam and earth, spicy peppers and leather. Flavor is good malt backbone, moderately sweet- toffee, toast, bready, earth, DuPont yeast- peppery spic, light fruitiness, fairly clean straightforward maltiness, moderate sweet- some leather and olive brine- but fairly clean overall. Very nice!

At l’Autre oeil with Sammy. Dark brown with a thick head. Good retention. Aroma is spicy malt, belgian yeast and hops. Flavor is very similar. A good belgian, very drinkable, above average mouthfeel.
