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 Fishermans Ale is a tribute to these hardy sailors and their rich, flavorful brew. Unfiltered. Unpasteurized. Bottle-conditioned in 33cl and 75cl.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2009 Pours a deep, dark brown-black, dissapearing tan head. Smell is warming and cozy, spices, yeasty and roasted malt. Taste superb, lots of spices, cinnamon, dark fruits, raisens, pine, oak, xmas pudding sweetness with malts, yeast and a pleasing slight hoppiness in the finish. More flavours than you can shake a stick at, a moderately alcoholic finish. An excellent and unique beer that gets better every time (I originally had this beer at about 4.5 but Ive tried 4/5 bottles since and it gets better every time).

Bottle. Black beer with a malty and roasted aroma, and a very rich and malty flavour. Overall a nice rich and roasted beer.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 5, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Pours dark, dark mahogany brown with a rocky one-finger tan head that lingers for a while leaving lots of lacing. The smell has a huge sweet caramel malt base with tons dark fruits in there, figs and grapes with a complimentary candied sugar sweetness. I got some spices in the nose but not a dominant aroma for me. The taste has more of the spice character with an opening candied sugar and dark fruit sweetness. There is a heavy roasted malt backbone in the middle with spices lingering in the finish with a faint sour hint as well. Very complex flavor and quite enjoyable. Mouthfeel is incredible - smooth enough to coat your mouth with flavor, but with enough carbonation to keep it dancing on the palate. This is a big, complex beast of a quad and one of the best Ive had. Its definitely a sipper but one that I highly recommend.

(Dgust avec french tickler) Une biere de couleur brune fonc avec un mince collet non collant. Odeur surette, pices, canelle, rubarbe, sucre et un peu de sel. Gout tres crmeux, un peu pics, sel et un peu d’alcohol.

Chocolatey brown colour and lovely foam make this an enticing looking beer and the enticing aroma makes me want to take an everlasting dive into my duvel glass. Roasty, sweet aroma with raisins and a vinous quality really got me all teary eyed, i had to restrict myself because i was in the company of men. The taste, oh the taste, there is everything in here that I want. The palate is perfectly soft, the rich malty taste, fruits, chocolate, so many notes here that i stop counting and just enjoy the hell out of the experience. So to make a long ramble tolerably short, I am gay for Pannepot.

Edition 2007.
Dark colored brew. Fruity, sweet aroma. Flavor is very nice. Good balanced brew. Smooth, creamy, fruity, sweet and some very nice bitterness to blend it all together. I’m lucky to have some of those for specials days,

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Tasted multiple times over the time it hit the USA in late 2006 until now, same vintage. What can I say that hasnt been said. Its a complete utter gem!! I thought right around 1.75 years it tasted its best, besides being fresh.

Vinous nose with notes of raisin, red-grape, and significant malt with a fun musty character behind it. Very grape-like nose in fact. Brown beer by the way, with a frothy head. Flavors were very fig-like and had lots of raisin notes as well. Some solid bitterness was behind it all too. Again, the fig and raisin flavors dominate but theres also nice red wine character riding along. Overall, its a nice, clean, full bodied malty ale, but I will certainly need to spend some more time with it if im going to be giving it the high scores that others have.
