4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Enormous, dense head that sticks around a long time, leaving decent rings of lacing. Deep aroma of cocoa, red and purple fruits (cherries, cranberries, grapes, plums, raisins), yeast, breads, and a hint of ... Dr. Pepper? How neat. Flavor - this is the smoothest 10% ABV beer I have ever drunk. Holy moly - it is too easy to drink this! Best-hidden alcohol ever. Be careful, because it’s really tasty, too. VERY well-balanced on the acid front, which is typically my foremost complaint among some otherwise great Belgian Strongs. 5 on the palate for sure. I’d like a little more aftertaste, but what is there is really scrumptious - all the aforementioned fruits, especially the red ones, lots of creamy maltiness, and a finish of bread and fruit. Nom! My special orders for December have gone so well. I’m such a happy beer geek! UPDATE: I am now tasting some spices in addition to all that other stuff. This just gets more and more interesting.

Bottle 0,33l. Deep brown color, even black. Medium beige head. In aroma there ale lot of spicy notes, some dried fruits, caramel. Taste is even better! There is caramel, biscuits, fruits, light coffee, spices, a light hoppy finish... it’s very complex! Highly carbonated. Excellent one.

And the God created beer and called it Pannepot! The Aroma is not very strong but the taste is amazing. Regular Pannepot rocks comparing to Vintage one.

33cl @ bottle. Praticamente perfetta, a partire dall’odore e dal gusto. Ha poco da invidiare a birre più famose e osannate. Banana, cioccolato e spezie varie. Splendida.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottiglia del 2013, colore marrone scuro tendente al nero con una schiuma color cappuccino fine e poco persistente, all’aroma si sente malto, cioccolato e frutta sotto spirito, in bocca è fantastica, piena e rotonda con un bel sapore di liquirizia nel finale. Una birra fantastica che va sicuramente bevuta almeno una volta

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330mL vintage 2013
Dark brooding, near black ale. Dark tan head is dense and persistent.
Nose offers an evolving painting of aromas; dark chocolate, nutmeg, date, clove, sultana, roast nuts, nut brown butter, earthy spice, molasses.
Creamy, syrupy, chewy body. Rich, decadent, without being cloying. Smooth carbonation.
There’s so much to enjoy going on here; chocolate liqueur, liquorice, charred barrel notes, stewed vinous fruits, raisins, clove & nutmeg & black pepper, cooked citrus, treacle & dark candy sugar, a subtle earthiness, moderate bitterness. Smoooooth finish, lingers so nicely. Where’d that 10% go!?
Sensational beer - one of the best Belgians, truly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Finally got to try this Pours a clear dark brown with a big yellowish head. Date-, prune- and alcohol aroma. Big and stable off-white head. Tastes quite sweet of molasses and sirup spiced with dates, figs and prunes. Hint of burnt caramel. A strong effect in the back of the mouth - nice. Medium to high carbonation. Very full beer with a sweet finish
