This is an interesting one. It’s a little funky, but not sour in any way. There’s a lot of dried fruits, dates especially. There’s a bit of toasted nuts and a heavy sweetness. It’s a little sticky.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy, dark brown body with a small, light beige head.
Smell: Sweet-smelling, candied fruit aroma of cherries and figs. Strong notes of treacle. A jigger full of spiced rum.
Taste: Sweet, bready toffee maltiness laced with sugary treacle. The fruits carry over from the scent and join the sweet mixture in a taste like melted lollipops. Soft cinnamon spiciness. Subdued yeast character. Very sweet, candyish finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: I enjoyed it. As for you, well, I hope you like your beers sweet.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 Pours brown in color with little to no head that is gone after a few moments.
Smell is very rich, dark fruits and some alcohol as well. There are some raisins making there presence known as well.
Wow, this is a good beer. Incredibly complex and smooth. There’s a bit of sweetness in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium, but it basically dances in your mouth then runs down your throat. Perfect amount of carbonation, almost perfect on the mouthfeel. This is a pure enjoyment to drink.

Bottle thanks to kleyland; poured a ruddy brownish-red color and not much head. Aroma of spice, caramel, brown sugar/chocolate, alcohol and dark fruit. Flavor was really good and complex. Much of the same flavors as found in the aroma. The spice presence was done perfectly; not overly spiced at all. Slightly sweet as well. Nice, smooth palate. Very enjoyable.

Bottle, courtesy of Moejuck. Strong aroma of licorice and yeast. Muddy brown pour with a medium beige head. Flavor of spices, licorice and yeast. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and gentle carbonation. Very good, but the yeast is a lot more present than in the regular version where the spices and licorice had more room to express themselves.

2006 bottle. Pours a rusty amber color with a medium beige head. Aroma of figs, banana, plums, prunes and nutmeg. Taste is slightly spicy with hints of nutmeg, figs, prunes, plums, candied malts and yeast. A lighter less sweeter and less spicier version than the original Pannepot. Excellent !!

2006 Bottle. Gusher!!!
Deep brown body with a nice head. Aroma is of plums, figs, dried fruit, oat bread, salami. Taste is really subtle and smooth with all the taste of the other Pannepot just with out all the spice. The plum, dried fruit really add a very gentle like flavor and a smooth creamy mouthfeel make this so incredibly easy to drink.I honestly can not taste any alcohol, that’s how smooth it is. I can see how others may feel a little let down compared to the other version, but this one is well crafted!

courtesy of fiulijn - pours a hazy ruby-brown colour under an elusive beige foam; malty, woody and spicy (nutmeg) aroma with notes of dried fruits; full-bodied, very sweet and slightly sticky, a decent bitterness but not enough to balance the high sweetness; long sweetish and malty finish with more dried fruits notes lingering
