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.

2011 bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a tan head. Pleasant but very light aroma of belgian yeast and candi sugar. Good mouthfeel. Spices are a little strong upfront. Again, Ill be honest about my distaste for belgian yeast, but I try not to let that affect my rating here. Back end of the beer has a lot more sweetness and it sits on my tongue well for a long time.

Achel (409) - 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.

HKdIPA (734) - HONG KONG - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Nearly opaque dark brown pour. Thin tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, leather, a bit of soy umami but not in a bad way, grassy bitter, nice. Taste is fruity in a quadrupel sort of way, but brighter, dark fruit and molasses, some background bitterness, boozy warmth. Rich palate that sticks a bit to the lips. Very nice.

CacheManyHose (648) - HONG KONG - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle from Brewcraft, drank at home poured into a tulip glass. Opaque brown-black with thin tan fizzy head and watery legs. Smells of cola, bready biscuit, biscotti, light almond, dark fruit, dry but sweet sugars, light marshmallow, lots of booze, some raisin, faint soy sauce, moderate grassy bitterness. Taste is nutty spicy brown malt, light grass and yeast and plum. Body is medium, fizzy lively carbonation, medium, heavier sweetish finish. Great aroma. Big but complex and refined.
