COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Oakes (13536) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Original rating: Muddy brown colour like chocolate fudge. Large, dense head. Voluptuous aroma - figs, milk chocolate, sherry, alcohol, fruitcake, demerara, double devonshire cream...dessert in a glass. Silky sweet palate - this beer glides effortlessly like Lijiang Yinjiu. A sensual combination of the softest Belgian chocolate, the sweetest dates, whisky nectar - the lush maltiness of Ardbeg without the phenols. Pannepot is evocative - the guilty euphoria of a childhood bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough. This is an artist’s finest hour - a masterpiece.

2006 bottle, consumed in 2012. Dark brown, there was some head early, and it’s opaque I think with yeast. The aroma is sweet, sugary malts with light, date and fig dark sugars. Silky sweet, very smooth. There are some soy sauce notes from oxidation, but a very refined beer with a lot of luscious sweet sugars. This is very good, although I don’t like it as much as a fresh Pannepot. 3-8-9-4-17 = 4.1

brokensail (13201) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 14, 2010
A: The pour is a dark red-brown color with a solid, creamy tan head on top. S: A really rich fruity, chocolatey aroma. There are a lot of dark fruits and berries, particularly blueberries and cherries. A really strong malt and bread component as well. T: The fruity and malty sweetness comes out of the gates strong. There is a bit of chocolate, caramel, and toffee. In terms of fruits, blueberries, red grapes, and cherries. A hint of alcohol as the beer warms. M: A fairly full bodied beer with a really full and creamy carbonation. D: You can never go wrong with this one, and I’m happy to see how well it holds up to aging. A really fantastic beer and I wish I had bought more.

Theydon_Bois (12682) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle at home - 24/07/12. Pours a murky dark brown colour with a very thin tan head that doesn’t hang around. Rich dark fruits assault the nose allied to dark sugars, molasses and caramel. Taste as nose, cherry and plum in the fore then some dried fruits such as figs and prunes at the rear. A little spice. Full bodied and thick verging on chewy but in a good way. Warming alcohol finish.

Koelschtrinker (12631) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 11, 2012
Von Beginn an bietet das Bier grasige und eine Vielzahl von Kräuteraromen, die sich um das karamellige Malzaroma versammeln. Die Komplexität ist enorm, dabei ist zu keiner Zeit auch nur annähernd der Alkoholgehalt erahnbar. Im Mittelteil wird das Malz noch vollmundiger, Schokoladennoten, ein Touch von Whiskey. Geringe Bitterkeit im Abgang, Kaffeenoten, erstmals ist ein Alkoholhauch erkennbar. Geringe Süße, das Malz im Nachgeschmack ist zunehmend schokoladiger. Super! 12/14/13/14/12/14

bhensonb (12440) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 19, 2008
33 cl bottle; 2006. Dark, opaque brown color with a huge rocky tan head. Aromas of dark fruit, like dates, and roasted malts. Medium body with sweet notes of light stone fruit and treacle. It goes on like that, and the finish is lightly sweet, but nearly dry. It’s not a bitter finish, but it is incredibly tasty. Wonderful ale.
