3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 2010 vintage. Poured dark brown with red hints in the depths. An initial head disappeared very quickly. Alcoholic whiff, plus fruit (christmas?) cake and molasses. Initially tasted quite sweet, a little boozy but also figs and prunes. Then some yeast, spice and a fairly decent hop finish, a little dry roasted malt, has a moreish finish. Quite a serious beer.

Pannepot parallel tasting.
Dark murky brown colour with no head.
Still a bit lighter colour than the Pannepots.
Vinegar, sourness, vinous notes and portwine in the aroma.
Vinegar, dark fruits, plums, soy sauce and red portwine in the flavour.
Rich. A bit too vinegary.

11.2 oz bottle is 2011 vintage, thanks Huhzubendah. Pours a translucent plum/dark cherry brown with lasting foamy beige edge head. A significant number of floaters that are dark brown in color. Aroma is candi sugar with dark fruits with plum, brown sugar and slight molasses complexity. Flavor is same with yeast spiciness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sweet brown sugar finish. Ages well, delicious.

Great beer. They used brett, I’m not a huge sour fan, but this goes very well in de struise pannepeut. Got 3, 2012 bottles. 2/3 maintained head and some retention. One of 3 were flat. Impressed. Largely good belgian dark leaning on too much sweet/fruit/sourness. But Givin that it had brett bottle conditioning 2+ years. Impressed. Longmont colorado

Dark brown color with a medium light beige head that quickly diminishes. Aroma has notes of ripe red fruits, candy sugar and toasted malts. Flavor is slightly sweet, toasty, caramel, some honey notes, dry fruits and ripe figs. Sweet final with nutty mouthfeel, creamy on palate with the alcohol very good integrated.

How have I not reviewed this before?! On draft in London.
Deep red/brown, zero head. Minimal carb (hooray!) and spiciness make this a standout among Belgian "quads" -- and I use that term here lightly. Hearty fruit base carries with it a uniquely caramelized, barleywine-esque presence. Awesomesauce.

’12 bottle in late ’14. Deep copper brown. Lightly oxidized nose, some light tobacco and black tea on nose, dark honey, light spice. Taste follows, with light spice, very smooth given alcohol.

Rich fruitiness, kinda like a christmas nutcake or whatever it is that you goy folk do. Pretty sweet but has nice drinkability for a beer in this category. Quite impressive.
