4.58/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into snifter

Appearance is dark brown with a reddish hue in the light. I get about a 1 inch off-white head that falls to a skim and stays.

Aroma is off the charts good with notes of raisins, dark brown sugar and molasses, figs, plums, dates, and dark cherry. VERY reminiscent of Rochefort 10, it even has the note that I would describe in smell as creamy (vanilla?) that I only found in Rochefort 10. Side by side, at least based on memory, I think they'd be hard to tell apart.

Taste is right up there with Rochefort too again with sweet sugar notes up front, raisins, figs, dates, but the difference here is in the finish that it leaves behind which is more spicy and woody and there's even a bit of an herbal hop presence.

Mouthfeel is not as effervescent as many Belgian beers but it still comes off as soft, medium bodied.

Really nice, certainly better than my other experience with the regular Pannepot, maybe that was a lame bottle.

4.4/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
