I enjoy a good quad, however, I rarely come across one that is worth talking about. Today I am going to dig in my cellar and I pulled this Pannepot out from 2006. There is a lot of carbonation in the beer, especially for it being five years old. Poured into my Brooklyn Brewery Tulip at 53 degrees.
Appearance: A very nice one finger head that has good retention. The color of the head is a very nice tan with some small bubble/foam. The color of the beer is dark brown and opaque. The head left some lacing on the glass. The appearance of the beer is near perfect, except for a fair head. I guess that is what age can do for the beer.
Nose: A very fragrant raisin, cherry, spicy cloves, fruity esters, solvents, subtle sweetness that is molasses like, and some floral notes. The malt has a nice subtle aroma. The nose on this beer has my mouth watering.
Taste: A very rich complex flavor profile has been achieved, the flavor on this beer is out of this world good. The flavor is cherries, raisin, cloves, fruity esters, oak, pine, molasses, floral notes, mild solvents, and a great malt backbone. Near perfect great flavors well round
The mouth feel of the beer is coating, warming, carbonated, and dry.
Overall: The body of the beer is heavy and the finish is full. This is great beer for a cold night. I a just wowed with the flavors and the beer profile, the nose suggested a spicy alcohol but the aged tamed and rounded the flavor. Sadly the beer is gone and I am wishing for more.

Pours an opaque black with minimal tan head that lingers as a ring of foam.
Plums, raisins, sweet molasses, and a touch of leather form the aroma.
Alcohol, raisins, nutty, toasted malt and light roast form the initial flavor. There's a vinous note at the finish that counters the malt sweetness well. Light cardboard oxidation dries things out in the aftertaste.
Body is fairly full, with a hint of carbonation and warming alcohol lingering.
Very complex brew. All is fairly balanced, between esters, oxidation, and malt sweetness.
Serving type: on-tap
