As Struise Pannepeut. Sample from tap, CBF 2014. Deep brown colour with a dense, tanned head. Sweet aroma with overripe fruits, rich caramel malts, spices, yeast, liquorice, sherry, somewhat alcohol dense. Taste is sweet. Full body, oily texture. Long lasting fruity finish with rich malts and a warmth from alcohol. Usual stellar Struise quality, would love to try an aged one.

Slightly reddish brown with a quickly disappearing foam top. Medium carbonation. Taste is caramel, salt liquorice, alcohol, some sweetness and bitterness. Full body and finish is long. I can appreciate the complexity but had higher expectations

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark brown color with a larger semi-dense beige head. The aroma is pretty subdued but with plumjuice, malt and slight licorice coming through. The mouthfeel is pretty light with a soft carbonation. This 2010 version has a somewhat oxidiced quality if you can call it that.. The otherwise rather sweet malty profile has changed to a more bitter and metalic one. On the palate I find some tart dark fruit flavours, yeasty flavors, lots of dark caramel which get a little too bitter in th aftertaste in my oppinion. Will try this H2H with Pannepot in th future with a possible rerate in mind.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap@ZBF 2014-ZO (first sampled bottled 2012). Gorgeously balanced crema of Sirop de Liège-style prunes, figs and date essence, save their sticky sweetness. Basically a gently aged fruit sirup tartinette elevated into the realm of an post-prandial dessert essence instead of a stomache-filling breakfast. Dry caramel mouthfeel, made even more pleasant by the subtlest of oak notes. Usually a reserved fan of big cannons like this, but the brewing expertise (no abv whatsoever), smooth creamy texture and depth of range is a thing to admire in this modern classic.
