In the early 1900s, the village of De Panne, close to the French border, was famous for two things -- the ‘Pannepots,’ or fishing boats, that could be seen along the coast, and the unique dark ale enjoyed by the local fishermen. Our Old Fisherman’s Ale is a tribute to these hardy sailors and their rich, flavorful brew. Unfiltered. Unpasteurized. Bottle-conditioned in 33cl and 75cl.

MGantzel (184) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2016
Denne belgian strong ale har et mørkt udseende med et meget svagt skum. Øllen har en sød aroma af lakrids og karamel og smager meget sødt af, lidt for sødt, og med noter af citron. Lav karbonering.

blackisle (1793) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Vintage 2015. Poured into a trappist glass. Pitch black, small foamy tan head, mostly diminishing, light lacing; strong licorice aroma, roasted malts, dried dark fruits, bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon; taste is heavy sweet and light bitter, roasted malts, licorice, sugary, alcohol, spicy notes, with long duration, sweetbitter finish, roasty notes, peaty, cloying; full-bodied, oily to sticky texture, soft carbonation; heavy stuff, well-balanced despite its sweetness and alcohol but at the moment it lacks subtlety.

uncben87 (68) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
2015 vintage. Dark brown pour with tan head that dissipates quickly. A lot of sediment (which may have been the result of a bad pour). Booze on the nose with caramel and dark malts. Taste is dried fruits, raisin, caramel, sweet but balanced and mild alcohol warmth. Low carbonation with medium to heavy mouthfeel bordering on stout like. Pretty delicious.

Superbe couleur noir, beaucoup d’arôme : chocolat, café un peu aussi de réglisse. Le sucre est la aussi pour faire passer l’alcool. Pas facile à boire tout les jours, mais vraiment agréable...

alteregoo (717) - POLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Sycząca, skromna piana, spory gaszing podczas otwierania (w porę zauważony - powolne odgazowywanie trwało ponad 30min). Barwa brązowo mahoniowa. Aromat intensywny, złożony, są nuty ciemnych owoców (jeżyny, jagody, ciemny winogron), suszonych owoców (figi, śliwki, gruszki), przypalanego karmelu, porto, rumu... W smaku podobnie, jest daktylowa słodycz, lekka kwaskowość wiśni w czekoladzie, lekka paloność, wyraźne nuty sherry, porto, dymu z ogniska, toffi i w posmaku tytoń zalany brandy. Goryczka niska, likierowo migdałowa. Alkohol wyraźnie rozgrzewa. Nagazowanie średnie do niskiego. Treściwe, kompleksowe, półpełne w odbiorze.
Reasumując piwo jest bardzo dobre, sporo się tu dzieje, tradycyjne aromaty i smaki ciemnych Delgian Strong Ale czy Dubbli przeplatają się z niespotykaną w tych stylach palonością, dymnością i czekoladą... Odbiór zakłóca jednak gaszing i nieco zbyt wysoki alkohol.
