Chocolatey brown colour and lovely foam make this an enticing looking beer and the enticing aroma makes me want to take an everlasting dive into my duvel glass. Roasty, sweet aroma with raisins and a vinous quality really got me all teary eyed, i had to restrict myself because i was in the company of men. The taste, oh the taste, there is everything in here that I want. The palate is perfectly soft, the rich malty taste, fruits, chocolate, so many notes here that i stop counting and just enjoy the hell out of the experience. So to make a long ramble tolerably short, I am gay for Pannepot.

Dark colored brew. Fruity, sweet aroma. Flavor is very nice. Good balanced brew. Smooth, creamy, fruity, sweet and some very nice bitterness to blend it all together. I’m lucky to have some of those for specials days,

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Tasted multiple times over the time it hit the USA in late 2006 until now, same vintage. What can I say that hasn’t been said. It’s a complete utter gem!! I thought right around 1.75 years it tasted it’s best, besides being fresh.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Vinous nose with notes of raisin, red-grape, and significant malt with a fun musty character behind it. Very grape-like nose in fact. Brown beer by the way, with a frothy head. Flavors were very fig-like and had lots of raisin notes as well. Some solid bitterness was behind it all too. Again, the fig and raisin flavors dominate but there’s also nice red wine character riding along. Overall, its a nice, clean, full bodied malty ale, but I will certainly need to spend some more time with it if im going to be giving it the high scores that others have.

Bottle and wow what a beer!! Holy crap! Pours a dark, dark brown with a tan color head that coats the glass with each sip. Aromas are brown sugar, syrup, dried dark fruit, spice. Thick and creamy the sweetness is just so beautiful. Dried fruits on the tongue, honey, molasses, mmmmmm hell yeah.

33cl bottle. Deep brown pour with beige head. Good god, this is good. Had it a year or so ago and forgot how good. Fig and raisin heavy on the nose, along with brown sugar and lots of spices which are so well-blended that I can’t quite pick out any single one... coriander? cinnamon? Similar on the tongue, with some cocoa and some smoky notes coming out. A little soy and licorice as well. Perfect palate: fizzy and light despite the sweetness and high alcohol.

Interesting to say the least. Nice color, spices definitely play a key role in this one, small, uniform carbonation, overall quite a treat, however, based on the hype I thought this would be more enjoyable. 2006 Vintage.

I didn’t like this beer, poured quite a bit down the drain. Sticky mouth feel. Disgustingly sweet and sugary. Too much alcohol warmth and not enough hops to create balance. Not drinkable or enjoyable - this just isn’t my cup of tea.
