11.2oz bottle 2010 vintage poured into snifter, reviewed on 11/16/11.

A: Pours a deep dark reddish brown with nice light brown head. Good retention and leaves some lacing around glass.

S: Lots of dark malt and dark fruit with some spices and warming alcohol. Some fruity esters add another layer of complexity. Overall this smells fantastic!

T: Everything in the aroma and then some. Dark malt, raisins and figs, brown sugar, molasses and spices with some alcohol and fruity esters. Everything that I want in a quad mingling together in perfect harmony.

M: Rich, smooth and creamy full body with moderate carbonation, absolutely perfect.

O: Extremely delicious quad, right up there with Westy 12. Highly drinkable with some nice warming for a cold fall/winter night. A shame that this isn't distributed here or I would be drinking this far more often!

Bought a 11.2 FL. OZ. bottle of this from Flamingo Bowl in St. Louis, MO for $8. Poured from the yellow labeled bottle w/ a ship & 2011 above it into a 16+oz Tulip Glass. Has LOT 2015190511- 24FF on the side.

Aroma- Has a strong malty and rich aroma with tons of cherries that pop out at me. This is a great aroma with tons of sweet character! Enjoyed!

Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that dies quicker than should. Has a dark brown colored body with tons of ingredient within. Leaves no lacing behind but okay with this. Just like out to sea, the ocean leaves nothing behind...

Flavor- Has a great malty and strongly sweet taste from the beginning and then has a nice boozy finish. Hops are moderate and has a good bitterness that blends nicely.

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Light Carbonation, Smooth, and then has a huge boozy bite at the finish. Can't get much better than this!

Overall Impression- Reminds me of a light barleywine almost with all of its alcohol and booziness. The mouthfeel couldn't get any better but Fisherman's Ale?!?! What does this mean exactly? I enjoyed a ton and you should too! Get your hands on a bottle.

Pannepot 2010 best before 30-2-16 into a De Struise glass

Finger brown head that gives way to a dark brown brew. Red hues towards the thinner bottom part of the glass. I'm not getting any lacing. I noted I had some slight lacing in my other glass last month.

Smells of big dark fruits especially raisins. Some sweetness and faint alcohol. Sort of rum soaked raisin. Caramel.

Oh yeah, big dark fruit notes and spice just linger around forever in your mouth. Dark chocolate and some sweet caramel are there as well.

This drinks so smooth with subtly carbonation. Perfect as far as I'm concerned.

Getting this for 1,75 in Belgium is a ridiculous treat. Straight up classic here. Drink whenever possible.
