4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Saveur Bière (2010). Big, creamy, beige head. Dark brown body. Smells of sugar, yeast, apricot, vanilla, nuts, spices. Tastes vanilla, roasted coffee beans, apricot, yeast, chocolate, nuts, spices and oak. The oak aging is clearly in the taste, which I’m not sure if it’s good or bad. I think compared to the normal Pannepot, it actually takes over some of the taste even though it’s still making it a bit more complex and full in its taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A black body offers mahogany trim when illuminated, sporting a fading half inch of khaki head which settles to a solid ring
Eloquent, coating and cohesive... oak barrel, brown and dark fruit, molasses and honey coalesce to create a smooth, rich, very well nuanced experience with depth of complexity, exceptionally smooth and flowing transitions with solid intensity... coffee, blueberry juice, almond, macadamia nut, cream, brown sugar, maple syrup and pancakes, butterscotch, cola, a touch of raspberry... all on a creamy, silky smooth medium body with a touch of rounded, tingling carbonation to reignite all the complexities as the lasting residual forms and speaks... this is excellent
