look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

Listed as the 2007 version on the bottle.

Pours a black color with a nice thick tan head. The head is very loose and bubbly and the bubbles kind of sparkle and pop on top. Great lacing and retention. Smells nice and tart, kind of funky, with a kick of sweetness and roastiness. There's also a kind of earthiness to it, maybe from the hops, yeast, malts?, but it's very nice. The taste is nice. The tartness kind of overpowers the other things, but it's nice. Something is kind of powdery in it, but the alcohol is well-hidden. It's not too sour, but not too sweet either, and the roastedness is nice in the background. Like some dark, sour fruit. One to like, and it gets better once you get deeper into it. I mentioned this chalky feel, though it is still very full with no burn, but something is a bit astringent. Not bad though. I really enjoyed this, a lot to seek out, and it keeps you sipping. I would recommend this to anyone if they see it, and it may be $6 or so, but worth it if you're interested in darker Belgians or tart/sour ales.

2010 vintage bottle poured into a Karbach sniffer

Poured super dark with a small, light and tan head that dissapated quickly.

Smells of raisins, figs, and honey.

The taste is fantastic. It's definitely a quad on the tongue; heavy on the palate and a medium amount of carbonation for a 4 year old beer. Thus is a super sweet beer that has a large raisin taste profile, typical but delicious Belgian sugary tatse. I could imagine myself drinking this on a cold winter night with oatmeal cookies after dinner!

After half an hour the raisin taste fades to the background and I get honey and molasses. This had become a very drinkable beer!

This may be worth driving 20 miles back to the shop I bought it from.

Dark and rich, this was recommended in a local beer shop when "the darkest Belgian beer you have" was requested. Surprisingly sweet and syrupy, this isn't a light dainty beer. Quite heavy, but even on this hot summer day it still worked. Overall fantastic.

Pannepot from 2010. Poured into a Corsendonk tulip (the glass that I own that most closely resembles the Pannepot glass).

The crack of the bottle was very promising with a snap hiss. Poured with a massive dark khaki-colored head. Super dark brew, as well. The ale is dark brown/purple. Burgundy hues. The foam laces. The look is amazing.

Definitive malty breadiness with a pumpernickel-like spice. Hints of baker's chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, earthy roast, and nuttiness. Obvious phenols with medicinal notes. Herbal, also. Very good.

There are more fruits that pour out in the flavor, but it's definitely a roasty dark quad. Caramelized sugars, molasses, and roastiness overtop of lightly vinous black grape, clove, and raisin. The body is very solid, medium-full. Lots of carbonation still residing in this bottle. The conditioning works. A much coarser bubble than I expected.
