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.

2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the magic tree, nice place. Good dark looking thing. Has a cherry soda mild perfume aroma about itself. Just a scummy head. Quite boozy at first but nothing like the 10% would indicate, much more civilized than the domestic wannah BZ. Alky and peat thing I think. Some almost cloying sweetness but just not. Must say, it is quite reserved for a big beer. Civility exists.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Promising sour taste. Blackish color with little foam. The taste is balanced and sour and with something i can?t put my finger on. Most certainly a beautiful beer, but it doesn?t work for me.

Taste is caramel, toffee, slight liquorice, slight hints of mint, cloves and various spices. Pours a deep brown with a tan head which soon disappears. Full bodied with a silky mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Vintage 2009 Pannepeut
Dark brown with dark amber tinge. Very small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts (coffee, chocolate), dark caramel(dark dried fruits), toffee, dark sugar, rum, oakiness. Taste follows at the same complexity and depth, licorice, sweet malts, dark roasted malts, dark bread crust, some wood, not much alcohol. Very light carbonation, sweet and roasted(bitter/smooth astringent) and light refreshing/herbal(had huge amount of dry hops?) aftertaste.
Same as 2009. Aroma is similar, a bit more intense towards roasted malts. Taste is similar complexity but a bit drier, maybe more dark fruits, prominent sweetness too. Not a hint of alcohol too. The mouthfeel feels light it’s been dryhopped the hell out of it. An amazing brew again...

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark-brown/amber color with small head. Spicy aroma, with berries and some sort of souress. Taste Spicy and full-bodied, a bit tart. Flanders-style I’d say. Very well-balanced and gentle, but still powerfull. The ABV are not noticeable at all. Superb!
