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.

Pours deep cola brown with smallish tan head diminishing. Aromas of figs, plums, caramel, burnt toffee, sweet chocolate and pitted fruits. Medium body, chewy mouthfeel, dark chocolate, caramel, sweet toffee, figs. Spicy notes accentuated towards the finish by the above average carbonation, finishing milky sweet, creamy, complex.

Kauge (1649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2016
Bottle, 2016 Vintage. Pours real dark, like red wine with a bit of black ink. Heads small, diminished to nothing in seconds. Aromas lovely, its burnt caramel, red fruits, both dried and soaked in red wine, rather dominant black cherries, woody. Tastes of overripe or almost gone off red fruits, woody, red wine tannins and dryness... not too good to be honest. Harsh, kinda acidic and on top of that very dry on the palate. Seems overrated, at least this batch here and/or this young, it just doesnt grab me, doesnt impress in any way. Aromas the best part. It probably gets better when as it ages.

Pannepot when brewed correctly is a good beer. Now and then I open one, an all round classic. The last three Pannepots I have had over the course of the past few months have all been infected into a nasty sour mess. I dont remember the what a good Pannepot is supposed to taste like anymore. All I know is this vinegary, light bodied, sour thing called Pannepot, a beer I used to like. I hope to try a good one again some day, until then I sadly have to lower my score.

Black colour, minimal head. Aroma of dried fruits, caramel, roasted malt, chocolate, spices, rye bread. Sweet dry taste with light bitterness in finish and aftertaste. Medium to full body and average carbonation. Nice dark ale with strong fruity notes.

thepatrickman (988) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 31, 2016
2014 batch, on tap at York River Landing. A beer so good that its almost its own style category. It straddles the line between stout and Belgian dark ale, and its unsurprisingly phenomenal. The flavor is "chocolate-covered raisins" -- a mix of cocoa from the dark malts and stone fruits from the caramel malts. In a class by itself.
