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.

kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Enormous, dense head that sticks around a long time, leaving decent rings of lacing. Deep aroma of cocoa, red and purple fruits (cherries, cranberries, grapes, plums, raisins), yeast, breads, and a hint of ... Dr. Pepper? How neat. Flavor - this is the smoothest 10% ABV beer I have ever drunk. Holy moly - it is too easy to drink this! Best-hidden alcohol ever. Be careful, because its really tasty, too. VERY well-balanced on the acid front, which is typically my foremost complaint among some otherwise great Belgian Strongs. 5 on the palate for sure. Id like a little more aftertaste, but what is there is really scrumptious - all the aforementioned fruits, especially the red ones, lots of creamy maltiness, and a finish of bread and fruit. Nom! My special orders for December have gone so well. Im such a happy beer geek! UPDATE: I am now tasting some spices in addition to all that other stuff. This just gets more and more interesting.

19Oracolo78 (178) - ITALY - MAY 20, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2017 Birra dal colore marrone scuro. Schiuma quasi inesistente. Al naso sentori di caramello, malto tostato, toffe e caff. Al palato si presenta con un corpo che unge la bocca, molto stucchevole e dolce. Richiama molto la rochefort 10 ma molto pi liquorosa. Tutto sommato una buona birra da bere con parsimonia.

castor010 (257) - Krakw, POLAND - MAY 2, 2017
Aromat - śliwki, czekolada, wiśnie, pumpernikiel, karmel, szlachetny alkohol Piana - prawie brak, redukuje się do obrączki, ale i ta po chwili znika. Ciało średnie. Lekka kwaskowość. Rodzynki, karmel i w zasadzie tyle. Dość pusto.
