Vintage 2009. A little assertive and astringent. Slightly sour. Otherwise, rich and spicy and magnificent. Still. Would rather have normal Pannepot.

2008 Vintage

Chestnut brown with a one finger tan head which vanishes quickly and leaves no lacing. The aroma has pears, candi sugar, grapes, dates, oak, and a heavy amount of alcohol.

The taste is just like the aroma. Pears, candi sugar, grapes, dates, oak, and alcohol. It is also sweet and boozy. A lot of alcohol heat in this beer.

Medium to full bodied. Sweet, smooth, decent carbonation, and a lot of alcohol heat. A nice tasting Quadrupel, but far from my favorite of the style. There is too much alcohol heat for my liking.

I suspect I would like the traditional Old Fisherman's Ale better.

2009

Perfectly dark with a half inch of off white head. Very nice retention and some nice spots of lacing. Aroma is light cocoa and prune. Flavor is a kinda hot with a lot of quad pruney notes with a touch of sherry. The roasty cocoa is a nice counterpoint to the quad character. I don't get a ton of oak, perhaps a touch of vanilla in the aftertaste but not a huge barrel character from the oak. Mid level carbonation with a bit of a bite. Maybe could up the body a bit.

De Struise Pannepot Reserva is a decent quad but I didn't love it. I had the 2009 version.

A: Dark red/brown colour and a 5 mm head that lasts pretty well. 4.5

S: Malty with a hint of alcohol. 3.5

T: Malty with strong dried fruit flavour and some acidity. A little alcohol noticable at the end.3.5

M: A little thin. 3.5

O: 3.5

Dark woody, textured brown. Spotty islands, not too much of anything in the foamage dept.

Apple, belgian yeast, raisin, prune. Toned down however. I always feel like De Struise's beers should be more impressive in the nose dept.

Nutty, caramilzed sugar, light oak.

Alcohol very well handled.

Good quad, but lacks the umph. I think my bottle was an '06 or '08 or something. I'm gonna need one of these fresh as I doubt they get that much better with age. The ABV is perfect, but the flavors are DYING.

A 2007 bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer poured a murky brown, hazy and cloudy. Half a finger of tan colored soapy head leaves a little lacing as it dissipates to a decent small bubble collar and a film of head. Looking right at the surface of the glass, good amount of carbonation, small bubbles streaming up from the bottom.

Nose is boozy sweet and sticky dark fruits, rum soaked raisins and prunes, clove, and molasses.

Taste is dark fruit, molasses, dark fruit, and dark bread malt. There was some clove and cinnamon as well. Flavors were a bit muted though. Some lingering sweetness on the tongue with a bit of alcohol.

Thin and light body with some decent soft carbonation, but a little too thin for me.

Reserva - 2008 vintage

Poured into duck rabbit snifter.

Pours 1/2 finger of khaki tan head. Color is a dark brown with a copper hue.Decent retention with some lace rings.

Aroma: Sweet and malty. Lots of raisins and licorice. Some plum notes. Toffee malts. A bit of spice shows with the slightest oak.

Taste: It really just tastes like a regular quad. Not a lot of oak at all. It has toffee malts, raisins, dried fruits, and licorice. Not a ton going on here, but it is good.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, creamy. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Not boozy which I like. Ends fairly clean.

Overall, a decent quad but nothing what I was expecting. Didn't taste too much oak in this one. It was good, but a little overrated imo.

Serving type: bottle

Anno 2008

Appearance -- Pours a rich mahogany brown with hazy chocolate highlights. Head is thin, creamy, bubbly in the center. Pretty much beautiful.

Smell -- Raisin, fig, red grape, spice. Nose is a bit muted as compared to the original.

Taste -- Dried fruits up front, specifically prune and raisin, red grapeskin tannin, brown sugar, dark chocolate. Lots of spice in this version of Pannepot, like hot cinnamon and black pepper. Finish is raisin, herbal hops, and black pepper. The oak aging is pretty subdued; lumberyard oaky tannin

Mouthfeel -- Medium-full in body, moderate carbonation. A little bit of oak and grape skin tannins toward the finish.

Drinkability -- I have to admit that this is quite good, although this is making me want to revisit the original; I think I liked it better. I think the oak aging may have bogged down all of the bright and exciting flavors of the original Fisherman's Ale.

A - Dark, muddy brown and red peeking out when it moves around. Pours a finger tan head which produces some nice bubbles, but mostly a tight, tiny bubbled film on top with a healthy ring.

S - Lots-o-spice; orange peel, coriander, nutmeg. Some plum, raisin, sweet molasses and bread with a slight meaty & smokey quality, and a little booze heat. The spices aren't really my thing, so while this doesn't smell great to me, the nose is fairly pungent.

T - Lots of dark fruit, but isn't overstated and mixes in fairly well with the spices. Dry raisin, sweet plum, fig, leather, tobacco, nutty bread, cinnamon, pepper, nutmeg, molasses, mostly in that order. The oak is well done, lending a soft dryness, but it's very subtle. The interesting blend of spice is dominating here, going long into the aftertaste.

M - Comes out oh-so-creamy with a perfect amount of carbonation, but once that fades I'm left with an unusual grittyness in the mouthfeel.

D - I happen to not enjoy the spice cabinet things going on in this beer, so it severely hampers its drinkability for me. I do keep coming back for the wonderful mouthfeel, it's so damn creamy.
