3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
as with pannepot, a hefty amount of residual sugar here in comparison to other belgians. big and muddy and malty, slightly boozy in finish. Head doesn’t last. Not that complex actually, the malt flavours take centre stage, with a small amount of subtle leafy hops, not much yeast character. Not cloyingly sweet, but not appealingly fruity and spicy either. Solid and tasty but short of spectacular.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red/brown - disapearing white head. A lot sweeter than pannepot. No licorice, not as powerfull and fullbodied. more obvious alcohol. Hoppy. But still a very good beer. Pannepot is better though.

Hazy reddish brown with minimal white head. Brown sugar, lots of tart red fruits, light funk, vanilla, some toast, chocolate and green apple. Starts sweet with than sourness going into a long tart finish. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Very complex and interesting stuff, but no Pannepot.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown body with a small head that disappears quickly. Aroma is some liquorice and the alcohol is noticable through the dark fruity aromas.
Taste is great, dark bready malts, dark sugar, dark fruits (raisins very present), boozy sweetness, caramel. Then some bitterness comes in which combines very well with the sweet, dark, fruity flavors that remain.
Not that carbonated and a bit oily but with a dry finish. Great beer!

330ml bottle, 2013, from Vanuxeem. Extremely rich liquorice nose, with a smooth blend of spicy fruits, dark caramel and soft liquorice. Not usually into this kind of beer but this is ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy dark brown with no head. Bread and raisins and some toffee/caramel for aroma. Ripe fruits and black licorice for taste. Burnt sugar/caramel also. Medium body with low carbonation. Very nice brew but I definitly had better. Now i’m even more anxious to get the pannepot.

Mooie donkere warmbruine kleur, ietwat troebel. Fijne lichtbruine schuimkraag. In de neus drop, donker fruit, gebrande mout. Vol bier, vrij zoet (caramel, bruine suiker), gebrande mout. Beetje weinig koolzuur. Mooi bier, maar tis geen pannepot.
