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 Fisherman’s Ale is a tribute to these hardy sailors and their rich, flavorful brew. Unfiltered. Unpasteurized. Bottle-conditioned in 33cl and 75cl.

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 it’s 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.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2017 Dark deep brown colour. Medium carbonation. Ripen plum scent and taste. Winey character. A bit boozy since its vintage(2016). Great beer overall.

CRNY (7) - Borås, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2017 does not count
Monday, August 7, 2017. Bottle 330 ml. Bought at Belgium in a Box in Antwerpen. Served in Trappist glass. Pleasant sweetness. A "dark taste" for a Belgian Strong Ale. Reminds me in some ways of Imperial Stout. You can say that this kind of beer is more like a good wine.

Från 2015 så två år gammal. Doft: torkade fikon, Rom, coca-Cola, honung, nötter, torr & papprig. Len, liteoljig, en del kolsyra kvar ändå! Smak: mycket metallsmak i början, Rom, torkad frukt, lite kryddig, torr i eftersmaken, coca-Cola, bränt socker, välbalanserad. mkt fin! Inte för söt!

Caramel, dry fruits with some underlying herbal notes. Full body with nicely balanced caramel, nutty and dry fruit notes. A bit of alcohol warmth.

Aus der Flasche Version 2007 (bbe 2013) im 2016-11 getrunken. Pannepot kann allen Stärken eines dunklen schweren Belgiers voll ausspielen. Feines Teil mit einer wunderbaren Reifung.

Can’t believe I haven’t rated this one! Pours a deep reddish brown color with a very thin head that didn’t stick around long. Aroma of dark dried fruits: cherry, date, raisin, sugar cookie, light spicy notes, caramel, and alcohol. Flavors were more dried dark fruits, snickerdoodle, brown sugar, treacle toffee, cacao nibs, alcohol, tobacco, wood, and a tiny hint of bitterness. Low carbonation, but featured very tiny prickly bubbles. Complex, nuanced, one of my favorites. Rich full-bodied mouthfeel, sticky and slick. An amazing beer.

[2016] Vintage Aromat słodkawo-winny, w smaku lekko ziołowa słodycz i wyraźny kwas - cytryna albo kwasek cytrynowy - tego się nie spodziewałem. W posmaku kwaśne i słodkie owoce, najwyraźniejsze z tego banany, w tle anyż. 3,4

[2015] W aromacie nieco słodszy, trochę więcej ziół.Smak to głównie suszone owoce, zioła, banan, dużo przypraw, lekka, dużo mniejsza kwaśność. Wysycenie średnie, ogólne wrażenie bardzo lekkie, alkohol praktycznie nieobecny. 3,7
