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.

hauxe (1212) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2018
From the 2015 vintage bottle. Very dark brown to auburn. Lingering light tan head. Plum and prune dominate the aroma. Hints of spices and toffee. Taste is sour with a somewhat syrupy sweetness full of dark fruits, spices, tobacco and caramel. Body is medium, quite sticky. Overall, quite interesting but you have to approach with the right mindset. Not for casual drinking.

15cl from tap @ Wezze Krafta. Dark brown, copperish colour with creamy beige head. Aroma: sweet, raisins, figs, mead, some bananas? Taste is also sweet, dried fruits, raisins, mead. Syrupy, becomes slightly flat in time. Not a single feeling of alcohol in your mouth, but you definitely feel that abv in your tummy.

Fles gekregen van Inoven, thuis geprobeerd met LiekevdV. Het is een donkerbruin helder bier met weinig schuim. Het heeft een aroma van gebrande mout en donker fruit. De smaak is fruitig, licht zuur, chocolade en hout.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2018 Very nice appearance, very fruity and spicy. Tobacco, leather, orange. A bit confusing style, but nice

Cimbasso (1136) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2018
Bottle of the 2017 vintage at Beerlovers Bar in Antwerp. Near black with a tan head. Taste of roasted malts with a lot of rich flavours. Chocolate, Demerara sugar, glacé cherries, dried plums, vine fruits and port are all there. Also some spiceness. Hard to say what spices - ginger maybe? Very good mouthfeel. Absolutely delicious, without any of the sourness that Holmen2 detected. Perhaps he had a duff bottle? A really exceptionally good beer. Highly recommended!

Аромат очень винный, немного винограда, хорошо ощущается чернослив и слегка кислая спелая слива. Цвет темно коричневый, пена постоянная но тонкая. Пиво очень хорошо карбонизированно, ощущается плотность и тяжесть его тела. Вкус сильно винный, очень разнообразен своими специями. Напиток ощущается как смесь сладкого вина и будто сливовый бражки. Само пиво средне маслянистое, и немного сушит горло и язык при глотке. Послевкусие на удивление кофейно - бобовое. Также присутствует кислинка от черного шоколада. В целом без преувеличения уникальный Бельгийский эль. Возможно единственный его минус это отчетливый алкогольный аромат и легкий привкус при его согревание.

jarvo (76) - Abingdon, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2018
UPDATED: APR 7, 2018 2012 vintage. Beautiful mahogany colour, with ephemeral cream head. Quite effervescent. A lot going on - aroma includes plums and butterscotch, which are prominent in the palate as well. Touch of alcohol, but not too much, gently warming. This is clearly a great beer, but for some reason I prefer the ‘basic’ version. Perhaps it is a touch less sweet.

Oiolosse (244) - Granada, SPAIN - APR 3, 2018
A principios de la década de 1900, la aldea de De Panne, cerca de la frontera francesa, era famosa por dos cosas: los "Pannepots", o barcos de pesca, que se podían ver a lo largo de la costa, y la exclusiva cerveza oscura que disfrutaba el local. pescadores. Nuestro Old Fisherman's Ale es un tributo a estos marineros resistentes y su rica y sabrosa bebida. Sin filtro. Sin pasteurizar Con botella acondicionada en 33cl y 75cl.
