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.

mice (816) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
2010: PE 24.9.2016. Vaahtoaa hieman ja jättää aavistuksen beigeä vaahtoa oluen pinnalle pitkäksi aikaa. Syvän tummanruskea olut, ei jätä pitsiä. Tuoksu karamellisen maltainen, tumman hedelmäinen ja luumuinen, vaniljainen, suklainen, todella viettelevän houkutteleva. Maku on yhtä lailla balanssissa huikean tuoksun kanssa. Makean maltainen, tumman hedelmäinen, suklainen, aavistuksen salmiakkinen ja mausteinen. Täyteläinen ja makea suutuntuma, paahteinen jälkipuolisko. Aavistuksen karkeampi varsinkin jälkimaun puolelta kuin Reserva 2009. Loistava! Keskenään vertailtuna (2009 Reserva & 2010 normaali) jälkimmäiselle piste enemmän ulkonäöstä vaahdon takia, Reservalle taas piste enemmän pehmeytensä ansiosta.

josanguapo (1149) - SPAIN - JUL 10, 2016
From lacasadelacerveza. In Teku glass. Playing Tomb Raider 2015. Big dissapointment. Weak body and an unpleasant sourness that makes me wonder if it was in good state... To repeat to be sure of its state
