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.

JamesMcGowan (4) - KINGSTON UPON THAMES, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017 does not count
Mahogany brown pour. Very little head, and it dissipates quickly. Not at all viscous. Flavours of liquorice, dates, white peach, cocoa, caramel and chewing toffee. Surprisingly smooth, soft finish. Hides the alcohol content very well.

datrael (372) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 1, 2017
W aromacie nuty czekoladowe, owocowe w stylu wiśni i śliwki, lekkie fenole, nuty waniliowe. W wyglądzie bordowe wpadające w czerń, lekka obrączka piany. W smaku drożdżowe, czerwone owoce, wiśnie, śliwki, lekko słodkie, lekko kwaskowate, do tego nieco nut kawowych, nieco zbliżone do wytrawnego wina. Przyjemnie rozgrzewa, ładnie ułożone. Niezłe, ale spodziewałem się więcej, nieco zaniepokoiła też mnie ta kwaskowatość

Turtles (2347) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2017
330ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2015. Pours clear black with a medium size brown head, leaving some lacing. Fruity aroma, sweet dried fruit, tart apples, cherries, roasted malt, caramel and mild spices. Full-bodied, medium to high carbonation, silky and chewy mouthfeel. The taste is fruity with chocolate and roasted barley, figs, cherries, toffee, earthy, mild spicy, cinnamon and anise. Complex taste with depth without being heavy to drink, the alcohol is well hidden and the finish is mild sweet and pleasantly roasted with a mild warming sensation. Quality stuff!

GhostS (192) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 30, 2017
(vintage 2015) Aroma with home red wine with a medium sourness, apple juice, well fermented fruits, some spices. Sweetly and slightly sour taste, with cinnamon, vanilla and a bit of pepper (not spicy), sweet fruits (apple, pear, some grape) a bit fermented, white wine must, some yeast. Good and well balanced!

Vintage 2016. Very strong aroma: lots of alcohol, smoked oak, rum. Strong taste: heavy smoked malts, oak, nuts, toasted caramel, lots of alcohol. Light sweet, light bitter, rather complex. I would say alcohol should be hidden better. By its rich taste I could even consider this beer as a quadruple. Certainly worth drinking, but its not easy.

Achel (485) - Ioannina, GREECE - JAN 19, 2017
Vintage 2006. Pours a clear, warm amber golden with a dense, beige head leaving some lacework. Very complex, vinous aroma with notes of raisins in rum. Sweet and full body with flavours of dried fruit, vanilla and brown sugar - and again a touch of rum. Not overly sweet and the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden in spite of the total lack of bitterness. The mouthfeel is extremely smooth and soft.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2017 Koffie en sigaar in de neus. Drop, koffie en zurige frisheid (mede door koolzuur) in de smaak. Prachtige complexe afdronk.
