On draft at Kulminator. Looks like it poured on nitro. Looks great, black with a silky off white head. The nose has big dark malts and dark fruit. Its a smoother version of the regular pannepot with a bit of burnt toast thrown in.

Ok, this is exactly what I am all about. Dark black color with a reddish tint, thin tan head that settles quickly. Bubbles rising from the etching of the glass. Aroma is of dark dried fruits (cherry, dates), candy sugar, alcohol, and a bit of "baked-goods spices". This beer is HEAVY on the sweet and tasty flavors. Mostly in line with the aroma, but with a load of that amazing Belgian candy thing. More intricate flavors came about after the initial gulp: coffee, roasted nuts, raisins, licorice, and alcohol. Really subtle alcohol flavor for such a big beer. Took me awhile to crack this one because it is so rare and epic and whatnot, but I encourage you to "drink em if you got em"! Though it would be cool to see what theyre like in a few years, theyre good now FOR SURE! Wow. One of the best ever.
