Beer & Book #5

Yesterday’s beer: Ommegang Abbey Ale (Dubbel Ale)
Yesterday’s book: A Drifting Life by Yoshihiro Tatsumi

Notes: Big beer, big book, happy cat. I’m roaring through Tatsumi’s oeuvre but I hadn’t braved the big one. A note from Jennifer Nelson encouraged me to tackle it–good luck, girl! But, hey, seriously, it might not be the place to start with him. If you’re worried about the sheer seediness of his comics, go to Fallen Words (funny & ambiguous parables, drawn in a wispy but assured style, somewhat sweet by his standards). Anyway, I’m on page 80 (of 820), so I’ll be with this one for a while. Oh, the beer: Slightly honeyed but otherwise unremarkable, except for the rich amber coloration and the two, sometimes three tones (like layers) in the froth.
