4/5 rDev -7%
Bottle courtesy of Bu11zeye: Poured a deep dirty cloudy brown color ale with a large foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of bubblegum ester with some candi sugar and some light spices. Taste is comprised of a sweet malt base which is well balance with some bubblegum ester and some light spicy yeast at the end. Very well balance with no apparent alcohol and a full body with great carbonation. I thought it was slightly less complex then the regular version but I would have to do a side-by-side comparison.

A: The pour is a dark amber color, perhaps we could call it mahogany with a fluffy tan head on top.
S: There are lots of different dark fruit aromas here, perhaps some figs, plums, raisins, along with a non-dark fruit--pears. A lot of caramel malt, brown sugar, and a hint of bread.
T: A mild spiciness followed by an intense dark, sweet fruitiness. Raisins, plums, figs, cherries, and brown sugar with a hint of alcohol and perhaps even a bit of oak.
M: The body is medium to full with a very creamy and full level of carbonation.
D: I like the regular Pannepot a fair amount and this is even better. A really fantastic beer and one that I would easily drink again.

"Old Monk's Ale" - 2007;
Pours dark brown with perhaps a deep red tint; thin tan head.
Nose is red plum, bright red fruit, grape/wine character in the nose;
Mouthfeel is creamy, malty and rich feeling.
Flavors are sweet-smoke sugar; sweet coffee and deep whiskey/chocolate with espresso. Complex, layered, sweet character and a nice alcohol character.
Drinks well and one of the few of this type I'd like colder than room temperature. this is more of a sipping dessert beer.
Nice a bit unique. Carmel/toffee/coffee/malty finish with just a burnt carmel bitter finish.
Probably couldn't drink a lot this; too rich and sweet. Nice for a small amount. Like dessert.

Poured into a bulb glass a deep amber tinged chesnut brown with a thick two finger tannish colored ead that held well.Aromas of deep dark fruit aka...raisins,prunes,and candied orange peel,almost a spiced cake element to it.Flavors again have a spiced cake note to it with some candied fruit,I dont really detect the calvadose barrel aging much though.A very good beer but maybe a bit overrated?

Served in a snifter at The Firkin.
2008 vintage. Nice to see more random goodness flowing at the Firk. This one pours a nice obsidian topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises figs, brown sugar, light molasses, light black cherry, red apples, and some very light roasted malts. The taste holds notes roasted malts, light-ish molasses, brown sugar, figs, red apple, red grapes, chocolate, and some very light coffee. The body is a slightly hefty medium, with a light carbonation and a very smooth feel. Overall, a very nice quad that ends up being dangerously drinkable.

Pours a murky tawny color with a large and long-lasting head that leaves a coating of foam on the glass. The nose is rich, full of chocolate, raisins and molasses. There's a faint red wine-like tartness, and a odd mineral aroma beneath the surface. On the palate it's fruity and slightly tart, like a semi-ripe blackberry. A big chocolate malt flavor makes up the foundation, with subtler notes of tannins, minerals and figs beneath that. The finish is semi-dry and semi-tart with a light astringency. The full body and chocolatey, almost roasty malt profile make this an unusual quad, and a fairly good one.

On-tap 9/20/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.
A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.
S: The aroma is faint but contains apples, brown sugar, caramelized malts and Belgian yeast.
T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of brown sugar, fruit, caramel and some spice. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are others in the style that I would pick first.

2005 vintage thanks to ygtbsm94. Served in a Great Northern Brewers Club tulip.
A - Pours with voluminous tan foam that settles to a thin cap, and splotchy lace. Body is a hazed glowing brown ruby-red.
S - Oak, vanilla, roasted grains, spices, caramel, nutty, nuts and berries, cake and bread.
T - Taste is more smooth out at this stage, but doesn't display obvious oxidation. Finish is slightly musty. Alcohol is well-hidden. Otherwise mostly bread, fruity esters, honey cake.
M - Medium carbonation, medium-full body, very chewy with lots of residual stickiness mixed with barrel tannins. No obvious heat.
D - Split the bottle three ways and it was easy to finish this bad boy. I like this better than the recent vintages, but I'm not sure it's a big improvement over the other Pannepot variants. Still, well worth trying!

Beer is dark brown and hazy with a strong tan head of tiny bubbles that leaves a TON of lacing on the glass, it's completely coated. Beer served in a Russian River tulip. Carbonation steady.
Aroma is sweet and caramelly with some dark fruit and candy in there.
Beer is sweet and medium to thick in the mouth. The roast comes up late and is separated from the total beer. This is a nice, caramel candied beer. Oddly dry late on the palate though. Beer is very drinkable. It's very awesome. If you like Quads, this is a must try. Low bitterness, easy finish, a great great beer.
The oak is not pronounced in oakiness or vanilla in this beer though, if it were more oaky in it's nature I think I would appreciate the oak aging more. Personally.

Had @ Lion's Pride.
A: Has a big frothy 2 finger + head that's bowing and sticking over the top of the glass. Very hazy and sediment filled maroon brown color.
N: Some aged sour fruity malts, some crisp aromas come through with some light spices and almost a funky wild yeast like aroma.
T: Starts slightly sour with an almost funk and fruit taste, some candi sugar that's lightly sweetening it. The great crazy Belgian yeast really sticks its head out to let you know. Some light creamy chocolate and more dark plum like fruits. More spices and spicey yeast, a light oak and vanilla. Lots of complex flavors blended together well.
M: Semi thick with lots of carbonation and light spice
F: Almost bready qualities coming through now, pretty dry but still somewhat syrupy in the center. The long Belgian quad like taste seems to teeter out over time, but the Belgian sweetness, sour fruits, and funky yeast really just stick to your taste memory for a while.

09 vintage totally not worth the hype. pours a clear caramel color with a red trace and a minimal white head that fades to nothing in seconds. the smell is just fine, sweet residual sugars from a big ass malt profile, a touch of molasses, and plento of booze. the flavor is a letdown to me though. it has none of the complexity im accustomed to in a quad. nothing woody about this, nothing spirited and clever in the malts used, and just way too much sugar and booze. this is not an elegant beer. the mouthfeel is flat and watered down, made caustic from the alcohol, which should have mellowed out by now. sticky sweet feeling left after the last sip, a funny buzz, and a turning tummy. this isnt anywhere near one of the best quads ive had. good beer by other standards maybe, or maybe my bottle was bunk, but this was a huge letdown for me.

From 09/25/10 notes. Had on tap at Churchkey in Washington, DC. 2008 Vintage - aged 14 months in French oak barrels.
a - Pours a murky mahogany color with one inch of white head and light carbonation.
s - Smells of oak, spices, dark fruit, sour cherry, and caramel malts. Smells great.
t - Tastes of dark fruit, sour fruit, caramel malts, spices. A step down from the nose but still good.
m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation; quite easy to drink.
d - I thought this was a great quad; the nose on it was great. Would love to try this one again.
