4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle 0.33 L @ home; pours dark brovn with creamy beige head. Aroma isn’t such dominant like at Pannepot, but still quite strong. It is complex with strong malty and caramel notes, ripe cherryes, raisins and some yeast. Taste is fruity, caramely, lots of dried fruit, cane sugar and some hops. Large body, soft carbonation. This Strong Ale is a bit lighter in the taste and aroma, then the older brother Pannepot, but still very rich and complex.

Part of a wonderful day in Bruges sampling Pannepeut, Pannepot, Reserva and Grand Reserva. The Reserva is clearly the best, especially in terms of balance of flavours. All must be tried. The wife thought Pannepeut was second best and really should be sought out more.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Definitely what a quad should be but missing a tiny bit of the spice/heavy hitting I like. It so smooth I could get in trouble. Sweetness is light and the malt is very balanced.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Colore marrone scuro, cappello di schiuma color beige ma molto eterogenea, non troppo consistente e persistente. All’olfatto si presenta pungente, dall’alto dei suoi 10° di alcol, e mostra immediatamente tutta la sua complessità; nonostante ciò è morbidissima, lunga al palato, piacevolissima, corposa al punto giusto. In bocca è un’esplosione di elementi: spezie, frutta secca, leggero caffè, tostature. Il leggero amaro che lascia al palato richiede un altro sorso. Equilibratissima.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite intense maltiness, light caramel, light yeast, dried fruits, light toasty character. Feels bit sharp. Moderate to intense sweetness, light bitterness
Definitely big beer, but quite a standard with nothing surprising. Thou highly enjoyable

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle at home. Dark brown with a medium off-white head with low retention. Full body with low carbonation. Quite sweet with some bitter tones. Herbs, malts, caramel, brown sugar, spices, dark chocolate and caramel. A nice full flavoured brew from De Struise, but not as special as the regular Pannepot.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 330ml bottle pobres in a chatice.
A: Pours a Dark amber to brown colour with a huge beige head which dissipates quickly leaving many nicel lacings. However never disappears totally leaving a thin bubbled payed on the top
S: Smell is very sweet and fruity. Mainly raisins and dates. Reminds a red wine. Absolutely delicious mix of sugar candy and Belgian yeasts. Some honey, some spices and also some hops
T: Delicious taste. Very candy and fruity. Raisins and date fruits. Sweet upfront followed by a mild bitter aftertaste. Reminds a red flemish ale, but stronger. Once again, delicious
M: Heavy creamy molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Sweet upfront and mild bitter aftertaste
O: Absolutely drinkable beer. Struise quality. By the way, the one that I’ve drunk had Pannepeut written in the label, and not PannepÃ¸t like the one in the photo...
