Thanks iowaherkeye for the opportunity to try this rare gem. Cola brown pour with a thick brown head. Aroma was very malty with some metal. Flavor was brown sugar, malty sweetness, metal, clove, vanilla, popcorn, butter, and alcohol. Finishes awkwardly sweet but with a mineral blood thing going on.

Thanks to olso2116 for sharing this treat! I had been rating for about a month when I had this beer, so my notes were a bit skeletal. The beer was hazy dark brown with an ample amount of tan head. The aroma was complex, with some spices, mild sweet fruit, and alcohol. The flavor was similar, but I also picked up on some mild oaky sourness, along with something that I couldn’t quite put my finger on... It might have been cardamom. Definitely would like to try again.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2008 2006 dark brown with creamy beige head Aroma complex, vanila, slight fruitiness, The flavor also has a lot going on. Sweetness of a caramal, slight woodiness and fruitiness. Very flavorful beer. One to sit and savour. Alcohol provides a warming sensation but doesn’t disruspt the taste. Very nice

750mL bottle, thanks to my cousin (ggaughan). Poured deep chestnut colored, with a huge, frothy tan head and active carbonation. Earthy, herbal aroma with anise, oak, ginger, yeast, and dark fruit. Flavor of dried fruit, herbs, spice, oak, nuts, and cocoa. Warming alcohol in the finish. Really nice beer, I can’t wait to try it again alongside the other Pannepots (and hopefully the Grand Reserva as well).
