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.

W aromacie śliwka, owoce kandyzowane, czekolada, wanila. W smaku wiśniowo, trochę kawy i karmelu, finisz ciut alkoholowy, ale w bardzo przyjemny sposb. No świetne piwo.

Appearance: dark brown color with beige head. Under average head thickness made of big bubbles. Very dark but it seems to have some hazyness. Low retention. No Brussels lacing. Taste: medium-to-high sweetness, low bitterness, no sourness. Intense flavors of toasted and roasted malts, hints of dark chocolate, coffee, cane sugar, dark fruits, raisins, prunes. The high alcohol level is not very much noticeable. Palate: medium-to-full body, oily texture, silky-sticky, very low carbonation, not very long sweet finish of dark fruits, prunes, raisins, some dark chocolate, toasted and roasted malts, spices, hints of alcohol. Overall: very good flavors and aromas of dark fruits, raisins, prunes, toasted and roasted malts, some alcohol, coffee and dark chocolate. Very pleasant and complex. Well hidden alcohol. To enjoy slowly. Very good beer.

JuanCC (92) - Valencia, SPAIN - FEB 27, 2017
Botella Vintage 2016 en 99Cervezas. Vierte en color castao oscuro ligeramente turbio. Espuma ligeramente tintada, escasa y bastante fugaz, Sin apenas adherencia. Porque carbonatacin. Indudablemente intensa nariz, con fuertes notas de ciruela pasa. Bastante licorosa en nariz y con un punto de pegamento. Complejidad media. Centros sabores destaca el dulce, con una primera entrada en boca francamente sorprendente. Y aparece tambin un punto de acidez muy suave que equilibra muy bien el dulce. Con la evolucin en boca aparece un amargor muy tenue, y a pesar de ser el dulce el sabor principal, el final en boca no resulta en la absoluto empalagoso. Ms bien al contrario. La sensacin de estar tomando algo parecido a un licor de frutas es notable. Peso medio en boca y textura casi aterciopelada. A pesar de ser una cerveza licorosa, no se sienten en absoluto los 10 de alcohol que tiene. En este sentido est muy bien equilibrada. Persistencia en boca baja. Una cerveza agradable para tomar como copa, aunque poco apta si lo que buscas es una cerveza refrescante. Hay que saber lo que se est tomando antes de abrir una Pannepot Vintage. Personalmente siento que se queda a medias y no redondea como es debido el concepto de cerveza como copa, aunque es sin duda una cerveza que siempre vale la pena beber.

Bottle. Brown with a medium beige head. Complex and funky aroma of dark malts, dried fruits, toffee and brett. Medium sweetness followed by light funky sournes and a touch of bitterness. Smooth velvetty body. A rich and complex sipper, one of my favorites.
