It's made by the same folk at Two Brothers Brewing who made that Domaine DuPage I had last fall. It doesn't show on their website but, then again, this page was last updated on 14 April 2009. It pours a swell aged pine with a rim of white. On the nose pale malty sweetness meets loam. Not dirt. Loam. In the mouth pear juice, a bit of white pepper and twiggy pine herbs like rosemary. The label says "we brew it from pilsner malt, candy sugar and some very non-traditional hop choices." It's almost like cross between Findu Monde by Unibroue and a biere de garde like 3 Monts. A beer for a rib-eye steak.
There is some yeast sediment in the neck. I have no idea what that means as it's been upright in the stash for months. Hefty at 8.5%. Value priced at 5.99 a bomber in South Bend, Indiana. BAers show respect but not the love. I like it plenty.
