2011 bottle. Absolutely loved the dark cherry/ cognac feel. Great brew as always, smooth, delicious and dangerous.

Bottle at Kulminator, same disclaimer as Tom10101. Deep brown pour with off white head. Aroma of berries, light plums, really fruity, oak, winey notes. Taste is sweet, really fruity as well, mild toasted malt, lots of oak, nice rich winey notes. Palate is full bodied, a bit lighter carbed than regular pannepot. Nice, but I prefer the regular.

Bottle (330 ml) @ Kulminator. [Note: We were told this was Pannepot Special Reserve even if it had the Pannepot Grand Reserva label so feel free to delete this rating if it’s not legit] Dark amber/brown with a small beige head and little lacing. Aroma is somewhat muted, but there’s still plenty of barrel notes (wine), fruitiness, spices, Belgian yeast, Madeira and malt/caramel. Taste is slightly sweet and spicy with Madeira, wine, dark fruits, spices, yeast and caramel. Medium to full body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly winey mouthfeel. Woodsy and warming finish. Pretty complex, but it’s probably going downhill now. Tasty and enjoyable. More winey than any other Pannepot version I had so far.

On draft at Kulminator. Looks like it poured on nitro. Looks great, black with a silky off white head. The nose has big dark malts and dark fruit. It’s a smoother version of the regular pannepot with a bit of burnt toast thrown in.

Ok, this is exactly what I am all about. Dark black color with a reddish tint, thin tan head that settles quickly. Bubbles rising from the etching of the glass. Aroma is of dark dried fruits (cherry, dates), candy sugar, alcohol, and a bit of "baked-goods spices". This beer is HEAVY on the sweet and tasty flavors. Mostly in line with the aroma, but with a load of that amazing Belgian candy thing. More intricate flavors came about after the initial gulp: coffee, roasted nuts, raisins, licorice, and alcohol. Really subtle alcohol flavor for such a big beer. Took me awhile to crack this one because it is so rare and epic and whatnot, but I encourage you to "drink em if you got em"! Though it would be cool to see what they’re like in a few years, they’re good now FOR SURE! Wow. One of the best ever.

On tap at Kulminator. Very dark brown with a beige head. Sweet sugary nose, followed by fruity caramel with a bitter tang. Nice.

On tap at CBC 2012. Beer in the glass dark brown, almost black, nice head. Mild-malty aroma, light fruity touch. Starts mild-malty with fruity hints, a bit alcoholic. Finish more and more fruity like berries, spicy-malty. Aftertaste with hints of raisins. Great beer!

Bottle. Poured dark reddish/brown color with an average light brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex dark fruit, wood, caramel and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex dark fruit sweet flavor with medium to heavy fruity sweet finish and a bite of alcohol. Standout brew.
