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.

Pours brown, tan head. Yeastie, leathery aroma laced with cinnamon and a bit of Brett. Flavour gives a great blend of Belgian yeast character married well with the added spices. Seems like the Brett is slowly taking over the flavor. A nice and unique beer.

With Amsterdam the starting point for a Rhine River cruise I was able to go into De Bierkoning. This 11.2 oz bottle was one of a handful I was able to purchase and bring home to taste. It gets tilted into my Rochefort glass leaving a dark mahogany body. The head, a light brown, diminishes immediately but there is a steady stream of foam rising in the middle of the glass. The scent is complex, there is fig, cedar, caramel, all very inviting. I drink and the taste is incredible, malt, more of the caramel, dark fruit, cherry and leather. Very full in the mouth, chewy I think. Just a touch of bitterness finishing. No anticipation it would be so interesting. How will I ever get another?

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.

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.

Very full malty flavor. So many rich flavored- cherries, figs, chocolate etc. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
