Beau's Abbey Style Cheese

I spotted a Tweet yesterday about beer-washed cheese for sale at Farm Boy — Beau's Abbey Style Cheese, to be more specific. I like cheese and I love Beau's beers, so how could I go wrong?

I txt'd my wife to see if she could pick some up on the way home, and she did.

I didn't expect it to be cheap cheese, but it was definitely a little more pricey than I expected.

A couple of hours after dinner, I decided to try some with naan crisps. The first thing I noticed was the aroma. A typical stinky cheese smell. This lead me to expect a slightly strong taste. I wasn't strong tasting at all. It definitely has a cheese taste, but it was actually quite mild.

I ate about half of it, and while I enjoyed it, I can't see us buying any more of it at the price point it sells at. I'm thinking of perhaps slicing some of what's left and putting it on a toasted ham sandwich. I wonder if that might bring out more flavour. :)
