Draught. Pours dark brown reddish, virtually no head. Sweetish ripe plums mostly in aroma. Taste has ripe plums, dark fruits and vinous notes in it. Feels a bit flat on the whole. Has a vinous aftertaste. Gets a bit smoother towards the finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz bottle from 2010. Pours very dark brown with a small foamy head that fades normally but never completely goes away. Aroma is surprisingly faint but still good. Dark fruit, raisins, cinnamon, Belgian yeast, brown sugar, apples, and musty wet wood. Taste starts off moderately sweet with rich plums, apples, and cherries. The finish has a red wine feel to it and it mixes well with the Belgian yeast aftertaste. Medium to thick body, slightly chewy and sticky mouthfeel. Another good one from Struise.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 A dark brown to black beer, with a small light brown head. In the nose there is are light roasted malts, caramel malts. overripe fruits and cherries. It is a full bodied beer, with a average carbonation, close to flat. In the taste there are light roasted coffee malts, caramel malts, fruits, banana, light sour, cherries and alcohol. The aftertaste is soft, light alcohol, and creamy. A very nice beer, a better version of the wonderful pannepot

Candied malt and thick quad-like taste all around. Wish I’d had this before the Ypres, which stunned my palate for a bit, but it’s warming up nicely. Booze hardly detectable. A flavour of plums and apple just before ripeness. Dark whiskey coloured without much head or lacing. Tap at Ebenezer Kezars.

Bottle bought @ bieresgourmet.be. 2009 vintage. Pours tiny hazy reddish wooden brown (late pours pour incredibly murky) with a rather small frothy and fizzy reddish beige head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet, malty and tiny dusty with sweet dark bread, biscuits, oatmeal cookies, raisins, figs, alcohol, vanilla fudge, caramel, St Johns wort, caraway, walnuts, roasted hazelnuts and subtle hints of bourbon. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, tiny sour and malty with sweet dark bread, caramel, biscuits, oatmeal cookies, caraway, St Johns wort, lemon zest, tamarind, assorted roasted nuts, alcohol, vanilla fudge, charred wood, hay, pepper corns, raisins, dates and figs. Mouthfeel is soft, round, slightly boozy, tiny spicy astringent, tiny tart and medium to full bodied. Finish is slightly bitter and malty with toasted malts, oatmeal cookies, biscuits, vanilla fudge, tamarind, dates, raisins, figs and bread spices. Tasty but want to try a fresher bottle...

2010 vintage. Pours dark brown with a medium brown head that falls quickly. Scents of molasses, cinnamon, raisin, vanilla oak. Tastes of molasses, mint, spice and a hint of smoke. Finishes dry with some heat from the alcohol. Nice.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice dark brown color, fizzy out of the bottle but it disappears quickly. Rich, fruity aroma, almost sugary, but indistinct. I get some dried fruit and some coffee, molasses. Flavor is drier than normal pannepot, more bitter. Coffee and alcohol notes in the front, a bit of ash, almond. Very nice and refined, an elegant beer.
