Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2013
Flasche (0,75 l) von Moine Austère, Tournai. - Schönes Orangerot. Schon in der Nase die unverkennbare Dupont-Hefe mit ihrer einzigartigen, komplexen Mischung aus Süße und erdiger Schwere. Im Antrunk schwer, karamelmalzig und fruchtig-würzig, mit Noten von Orangeat, grünen Trauben, Aprikosen, Gras, Erde und Leder. Später kommt Hopfenbittere dazu, für feinere Hopfenaromen ist kein Raum. Sahnig im Mund. Trockener, bitterer Abgang. - Großartiges, schweres und sehr würziges Bier, unverkennbar Dupont.

750 ml bottle courtesy of Frydaddy - Pours a hazy amber color with a large off white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is esters, bread, light spice, and yeast. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt, esters, yeast, and a touch of phenols. the esters really linger in the finish. Medium body. A decent beer. Thanks Michael.

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 29, 2013
750 ml bottle @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse in March 2013. After removing the cork the cork was engraved with 2011 on it. OK, I guess it’s ready to drink! Cloudy amber with ample carbonation keeping consistent head. Nose is pale malts, honey and must, dusty basement. Flavor is malt, caramel, weak fruit, yeast and dusty malts. I guess this wasn’t good to hold this long, of course when I bought the bottle I wasn’t expecting it to be from 2011. It would be best consumed on the fresh side. I may only start drinking draft beer, I’m getting tired of buying old bottles that have sat on a shelf far too long. That being said this still was very drinkable after all the sitting.

75cl bottle. APPEARANCE: clear darker blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: grains, wood, little alcohol, some hops. TASTE: alcohol, heavy, grains, hops, lots of carbonation. Not bad, but nothing special.

2011 bottle. Pours hazy amber with a tight foamy soapy head that dissipates to a thin film and collar. Aroma is dry funk caramel malt yeast subtle lemon and biscuit. Taste is sweet bitter caramel malt some funk and yeast with mild citrus fruit bread and spice with a mellow warming finish. Palate is medium chalky and drying. Very enjoyable!
