4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle pours muddly dark brown color with off white head. Aroma is awesome. Ripe dark fruit, butterscotch, toffee, caramel, and a stickly sweetness that seems to linger. This stuff smells so good I couldn’t stop smelling it. Just awesome. Prickly carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors follow the nose. Upfront has the caramel and toffee sweetness. Its not cloying. The middle has dark fruit notes, and it finishes with a alcoholic hot bite. This was a great beer from start to finish. Outstanding.

2009 33cl bottle. Pours dark brown with two fingers of beautiful creamy beige head. Smells of caramel, molasses, dark (plums, raisins, dates) and dried fruits with some alcohol chocolate cake aroma. Taste adds toasted note with coffee, burnt sugar, light spices and some alcoholic and liquor-like flavors. Excellent.

Vibrant light Cola brown, ringed eggshell head. Creamy hardware clove and cherry. Initial taste of clean tinny bitterness, furry tart toward the middle. Clean and complex. Drenched sweetness and easy on the barrell finish.

In bottle (vintage 2010): pours a dark brown. Aroma of malt and fruit, with some cocoa. Taste is similar with coffee notes added .. very good coffee though I am finding all the Pannepots are tasting the same .. good thing they are good beers

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The first Calvados barrel aged version of Pannepot, of limited production. It boasts the same incredible complexity, finesse, tempting bouquet and greatness as the regular Pannepot and more, with the emphatic oak tannins and vanilla adding a considerable amount of additional complexity. Dried fruits, sweet tobacco, sherry, bourbon, walnuts, calvados, balsamic vinegar are all there - and very intelligently blended. I must do a side by side tasting of this and the Grand Reserva but from memory, both were equal in absolute divinity.
