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.

EithCubes (5205) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2007
2006 bottle from State Line. Rich aroma of cherry, sour and sweet with spicy yeast and notes of caramel and raisin and faint vanilla. Bit of a light gusher, mahogany pour, noisy and nearly opaque ruby under light, with a light brown soapy head. Superbly malty taste, notes of rum, raisin, vanilla, cherry, and even smoke! Hearty and warming, full-bodied with a dry, smoky aftertaste that lingers. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Sweet and spicy, only the faintest hint of sourness, with no bitterness. Dates, cream, and a touch of molasses with the memory of Belgian chocolate. A little spicy fruitcake: a rooty sort of spiciness, but blended to the point it is unidentifiable; finish wants to add notes of bourbon but veers off toward port instead. Rounded, fruity, balanced, with well-integrated alcohol; there’s a ton going on here. This is pretty much everything I’m looking for in a beer - what a complex beast!

MaBeer1972 (1412) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 24, 2015
On tap at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick. Deep purplish brown. Thin head. Very sweet to start, smoothes out after a while with dark earthy, raisony notes. Very underwhelming.

berlinoise2go (655) - NORWAY - MAY 22, 2015
2014 ed. Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Aker Brygge), Oslo. Very dark brown colour. Finger-thick beige head that reduces fairly quickly to a small ring and scattered foam islands. Sweet malty nose with rich, dried fruits, coffee and spices like star anise, vanilla, nutmeg. Full body, soft carbonation. Taste has a lovely balance between sweet malt, mildly acidic fruit and some spicy bitterness in the finish.

bigtaster (778) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
From a bottle into a snifter 2013 vintage. Pours a opaque black with large light brown head. Nose is great with lots of spices, anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, toffee, some dark dried fruit with hints of yeast, plums, raisins. Medium to high carbonation, a bit of spunk to it almost like a little heat, oily body, sweet, very little bitterness. Long finish lots of spices lingering on the pallet, a hint of alcohol. Well made beer, enjoyable, just not entirely the flavors i’m looking for.

Vili (109) - FINLAND - MAY 14, 2015
33cl bottle. Dark brown pour with thin brown head, no lacing. Aromas of raisins, toffee and coffee. Taste is bitter, a bit sweet. Coffee, licorice and grilled vegetables. Little to no carbonation. Strong aftertaste of spices and alcohol. Interesting, but a bit sweet for my taste.

Dark brown color with small head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is dark malts, plums, raisins. Taste is dark caramel, dry plums, sweet balsamico, nice tartness, red wine feeling. Refreshing carbonation. Wow! Great!

Struise Pannepot 2013 jest ciemno czekoladowy i tworzy pianę tak gęstą, że można na niej oprzeć łokieć podziwiając widoki w Brugii. Aromat piwa pokazuje maestrię piwowarów i potencjał mocnych piw belgijskich, które są u nas totalnie niedocenione. Kakao miesza się z czekoladą, suszone owoce pod postacią świątecznych śliwek, rodzynek i fig, kandyzowany cukier i nuty winne. Zapach jest iście boski i dla mnie doskonały. Z powodu takich właśnie piw, gdy ktoś mnie pyta o ulubiony styl, to bez wahania mówię quadrupel czy też strong ale. Jeśli ktoś nazwałby Pannepota chmielowym napojem, to wykastrowałby go z całego bogactwa smaku, a przy tym minął się z prawdą. Gorycz jest minimalna. Prym wiedzie posmak winny wzbogacony o wyraźne suszone owoce. Są banany i belgijska drożdżowość. Zamiast alkoholu lekko pieką w gardło przyprawy. Bardzo miękkie i oleiste to piwo. Absolutny wzór do naśladowania.

Lovely dark side Belgian strong with high level maltiness, caramel, candi sugar, decent roastiness, dark choco, dried fruits, some fresh fruitiness, light yeast. Moderate sweetness with light bitterness. Quite an awesome sippable brew.
