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.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, - MAY 10, 2012
tastes a hell of a lot like rochefort 10, only less subtle. a big chewy malty and spicy ale, as brown as a beer can taste brown: gravy, chocolate, mole sauce, brown sugar, etc. rich and opulent to a degree few belgian beers attempt (perhaps why its a ratebeer sort of beer) but still dry. the thing that is really cool about it is a kind of winelike fruity sourness that winds the palate up. salty too. plenty of coriander evident, maybe something peppery too. perhaps a bit heavy where i like belgian ales to be zippy and frothy and phenolic.

Ciemne. Obfita piana szybko znika sycząc i pryskają. W aromacie suszone owoce, wiśnie i czekolada. Znakomicie ukryty alkohol. Gładkie i treściwe. Słodkie ale nie wyklejające.

Pours black with brown-ish head. Strong hints of coffee, spices and dried prunes. Good masked alcohol with a very slight bitter taste. Lasting aftertaste. One of my favourites so far.

19Oracolo78 (180) - 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.

33cl bottle. Great beer, but for some reason not my cup of tea. the aftertaste is a bit too much for me.

Apples, dried fruit, yeast, spices, sugary, medium to high sweet. Texture and body somehow resembles cider or sparkling wine. Very complex and unique, great brew.
