Reviewed from notes. Thanks to bmanning for sharing the 2007 vintage at a recent tasting with Azurelimits, Amyliz4, hhanson, and myself.

A: Pours a light mahogany with chestnut and ruby hues both coming through. Small off-white head.

S: Belgian yeast with quite a bit of spiciness atop a bit of miscellaneous fruitiness.

T: Nice spice notes of allspice, nutmeg, and clove in addition to a nice caramel malt sweetness coming through. Hints of vanilla and dark fruits.

M: Medium bodied with a very nice creaminess to it. Intriguing complexity.

D: Very drinkable, and one I definitely wish I had a bit more of to try. Another excellent beer in the Pannepot series.

12oz. bottle. 2006.

Hazy, warm copper/brown liquid. Very tiny, very light tan head. Legs, no lacing.

Aroma seemed much less spicy than regular Pannepot. Citrus and a touch of grass. Again, not much of the classic Belgian scent. Overall, rather mild.

Taste was less sweet than regular Pannepot, but still pretty sweet overall -- fruity, cherries & raisins. Biscuity middle. Lots of grass throughout. Some spice, mainly at finish, much more mild than the regular version.

Medium body, seems lighter than it should be. Medium to high carbonation, very tingly despite appearance. Fairly dry.

Overall, Pannepot "Light". I think I prefer it to the regular version.

Pours a murky dark brown with creamy head that rapidly dissipates. Heavy aroma of prune juice and burnt sugar.
More dark fruit on the taste with some cherry tobacco notes, drying out somewhat, but not completely clean on the pallet.
Slightly tart finish. Possible orange peel note in finish. Alcohol still very evident through the heaviness of this beer.

Pannepot - Old Fisherman's Ale (Denmark Version) pours a dark brown with only an off white ring of head around the edge of the glass, poured from a brown 11.2 ounce bottle. Dark fruit wafts out of the glass. The flavor is also dark fruit with a hint of spices. The mouthfeel is thin but appropriate. I can't put my finger on any differences from the regular version, I would like to sample them back to back one day. Excellent beer.

This beer was poured into a tulip glass. It's color was a dark brown with very little off-white foamy head. Alcohol is well-hidden and it doesn't drink like a 10% abv beer. It is medium-bodied with little carbonation. Drinkability is good with this beer.

poured into a snifter, nice deep brownish amber color with nice lacing.

nose is boozey, oak, dark fruit, caramel.

big caramel and dark fruit flavor upfront, mild vanilla and toast, very boozey, slight medicinal phenolic flavor, finishes slightly dry with a subtle tannic note.

medium bodied, not too full, not overcarbed. very restrained but also very good.

2008 bottle poured into a new belgium glass. Opaque brown with ruby edges, small mocha head with some lacing. Smell is caramel and sweet malt up front followed by wet barrel, sweet tobacco, and a hint of orange peel. Taste is not as big as I thought it would be. Only slightly sweet, caramel malts with a touch of bitterness and milk chocolate coffee. Doesn't have the characteristic quad yeast flavor i was expecting. Long roasty aftertaste and alcohol is very well hidden. Mouthfeel is more like a stout then a quad - medium to heavy and a mild carbonation. A great beer overall, although I am not sure it is completely within the style parameters. As far as the BA style description goes, it fits.

2007 Vintage! Served from bottle into a Trappistes Rochefort chalice. Poured a deep reddish brown with a half finger light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, dark chocolate, dark fruit, and sweet alcohol. The flavor was of sweet malt, dark chocolate, bread, raisins, and sweet alcohol on the followthrough. It had a heavy feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. This one wasn't quite as smooth as the Old Fisherman's Ale with similar age on it, but was still quite nice. The alcohol on this one definitely made itself present on the followthrough without doubt. Hard to believe that with this one having 4 years on it already. Definitely worth trying if you get the chance!
