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.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2012
2010 Bottle. A dark brown to black with big tan Head that is lasting. Aroma is dark dried fruits (raisins, dates, prunes) a whiff of sea salt, big oak character, a syrupy sweetness like a dark fruit jam or something. Flavor follows with a fairly full mouthfeel and flavors of fruit, not quite sticky but syrupy certainly. If I poured it over vanilla ice cream I imagine it would be a phenomenal experience. Flavors add spiciness, peppery, but around that chocolate blackberry or plum first noticed in the nose. Belgian yeast and candy sugars come in a dark molasses kind of way. The kind of beer Id want to drink off the beach in Nantucket on a cooler August night. Always has been one my true beer loves for many years.This beer so dark and delicate is a dessert on its own and maybe tomorrows breakfast shall be another.

JuanCC (39) - Valencia, SPAIN - FEB 27, 2017
Botella Vintage 2016 en 99Cervezas. Vierte en color castao oscuro ligeramente turbio. Espuma ligeramente tintada, escasa y bastante fugaz, Sin apenas adherencia. Porque carbonatacin. Indudablemente intensa nariz, con fuertes notas de ciruela pasa. Bastante licorosa en nariz y con un punto de pegamento. Complejidad media. Centros sabores destaca el dulce, con una primera entrada en boca francamente sorprendente. Y aparece tambin un punto de acidez muy suave que equilibra muy bien el dulce. Con la evolucin en boca aparece un amargor muy tenue, y a pesar de ser el dulce el sabor principal, el final en boca no resulta en la absoluto empalagoso. Ms bien al contrario. La sensacin de estar tomando algo parecido a un licor de frutas es notable. Peso medio en boca y textura casi aterciopelada. A pesar de ser una cerveza licorosa, no se sienten en absoluto los 10 de alcohol que tiene. En este sentido est muy bien equilibrada. Persistencia en boca baja. Una cerveza agradable para tomar como copa, aunque poco apta si lo que buscas es una cerveza refrescante. Hay que saber lo que se est tomando antes de abrir una Pannepot Vintage. Personalmente siento que se queda a medias y no redondea como es debido el concepto de cerveza como copa, aunque es sin duda una cerveza que siempre vale la pena beber.

ABS (989) - Stokke, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark brown to black, with a foamy, brown head. Raisins, dates, fruit, cellar and tobacco, tiny alcohol sting, some wine and balsamic vinegar. Mostly sweet. A bit dry, slightly tart actually. Quite full body. A bit too soft carbonation. Good, but the flavours are a bit flat in my opinion. Maybe my expectations were too high.

Flesje thuis gedronken. Diep donkerbruin helder bier met weinig schuim. Aroma van donker fruit. Smaak van fruit, koffie, chocolade en hout. In de nasmaak komt de koffie en chocolade ook naar boven.

2015 version. Pours dark brown with a minimal beige head. The aroma contains coffee, chocolate, licorice, dry fruits, spices and butterscotch. It tastes medium sweet and light bitter. Long, sweet spicy and light sour finish. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden and becomes warming. Great in all aspects.
