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.

pityu (560) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle - Hazy dark brown colour, medium and durable beige head with fine lacing. Fruity and toffee aromas with some cherries, raisins, caramel and some bread. Very sweet taste with some cherries, vanilla, raspberries and caramel. Full body, moderate carbonation, oily mouthfeel, sweet and complex finish. Nice strong ale with fruity notes and well disguised alcohol.

josanguapo (997) - 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

andniz (130) - POLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Very complex beer Aroma of raisins, spices, cloves, caramel, bread, a little bit of solvent. Rather sweet, but not cloying. Leaves nice, sweet bready-chocolatey aftertaste. Almost flat

Ritzn (315) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2016
Dark red brown, mahagoni with almost no head. Aroma is syrup, brown sugar, many nuts, toffee, clove, really complex. Spicy taste, sweet and boozy. Oily mouthfeel almost too heavy. Overall great. I also have an 11 year old version here: It is undrinkably sweet. With additional aroma of tires. Has a honey like mouthfeel due to the missing carbonation. Recent version is better.
