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.

2013 vintage, 33cl bottle @ home. Pours very dark ruby brown with a large beige head. Aroma is caramel, plums, raisins, yeast and generally dark fruits. The falvour is sweet with yeasty notes and heavy on the dark fruits. The carbonation is soft, finish is balanced. To be enjoyed sipping.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle pobres in a chatice.
A: Pours a Dark amber to brown colour with a huge beige head which dissipates quickly leaving many nicel lacings. However never disappears totally leaving a thin bubbled payed on the top
S: Smell is very sweet and fruity. Mainly raisins and dates. Reminds a red wine. Absolutely delicious mix of sugar candy and Belgian yeasts. Some honey, some spices and also some hops
T: Delicious taste. Very candy and fruity. Raisins and date fruits. Sweet upfront followed by a mild bitter aftertaste. Reminds a red flemish ale, but stronger. Once again, delicious
M: Heavy creamy molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Sweet upfront and mild bitter aftertaste
O: Absolutely drinkable beer. Struise quality. By the way, the one that I’ve drunk had Pannepeut written in the label, and not PannepÃ¸t like the one in the photo...

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle, vintage 2008, enjoyed six years after bottling. Pours brown with a small reddish hue, and a finger thick creamy mocha head. Aroma is tremendously nice and malty with chocolate and nuts, as well as kandi, coffee and muscovado. Full creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is just incredible! Enormously complex, yet simply balanced to perfection. The roasted malts have chocolate, oak and leather notes, as well as nice dark fruits giving way to oaky wood and coffee in the finish.

love all the versions of Pannepot, but honestly have a hard time scoring them different. Even had a head to head a couple times and they’re all just so nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
10%ABV. Belgian Strong Ale.
Nose is full of nutmeg, stewed prunes, sweet dates and candied fruit. There is also a hint of what is described as gula melaka which is a thick brown sugary syrup made from coconut flowers. Very pleasingly sweet with a unctuous fragrance. charming without being cloying.
First mouthful is lightly carbonated so you don’t get too much tongue on the first kiss. This is a surprisingly balanced strong ale with just enough alcoholic heft and a strong malty back for the heavy lifting. There are constant reminders that this is a strong ale. Sipping this is like having a 250lb, heavily-muscled, slightly dusty carpenter smelling of tobacco and old leather edging you out of your spot at the bar, daring you to say something.
Nice short and polite finish of bitter hops leaving the palate clean for another go around.

Dark straw color on pour a bit cloudy aroma is a malt/aged fruit. Taste is full and bold but not hot in relation to ABV. Candied malt and some dried coriander linger on the palate in a nice crisp finish.
