Whoops. A slow gusher. Pours a couple fingers of lightly tanned off white head and a dark brown body that is lighter brown and amber at the bottom of the Struise glass.
An aromatic beer for sure. Getting whiffs as I poured. Lots of dark fruit. Brown sugar sweetness. Peppery spice. Oak barrel wood, vanilla, and coconut. The coconut smell is so wonderful in this. Slight alcohol aroma at room temp.
The inviting nose leads into a wonderful taste. A great warming beer. Dark fruit especially raisins, dark bread, brown sugar, caramel and plenty of barrel character(tannin and coconut).
This is so smooth. Even with the gushing the carbonation is subtle and makes for a creamy medium bodied mouthfeel. Dry.
This was delectable. Pannepot is such a great beer and throwing it into a barrel is divine.

330ml bottles. 2008 and 2009 vintages poured side by side.
A: Both vintages pour a murky mahogany woody brown. 08 definitely has less carbonation, but a thin dark tan collar briefly stuck around. The 09 has a nice dense finger of foam that slowly faded into a fuzzy film and collar.
S: The 09 is definitely a bit brighter and sweeter smelling, and the 08 has a few hints of musty damp oxidation, but other than that the noses are pretty similar with scents of dark fruits, raisins, leather, pipe tobacco and mild spice.
T: Both are actually fairly similar but the 09 flavors are a bit brighter. Powdery chocolate and dark fruits dominate, especially candied dates, raisins, and figs. Vanilla, oak, spice, nutmeg, and slight caramel, come through as well with a surprisingly earthy hoppy finish, slight sticky booziness, and slight bitterness.
M: Fairly similar as expected on both vintages. Maybe a bit more carbonation on the 09. Thick body, chewy mouthfeel, heavy and smooth, very soft carb, mellow, well-aged, and integrated.
O: Age has done wonders. 08 is amazing but I like the brighter (yet still very mellow) flavors of the 09 better. Both are some of the best quads in the world.
