From notes, 1/24/11. Excellent beer. Pours dark brown with a small-ish beige head. Combines Pannepot’s huge fruity, malty flavors with drying oak overtones. Raisins, plums, prunes, figs, dates, molasses, caramel, spice, sherry and wood. The taste is fairly sweet but ends with a dry oak flavor. Lush mouthfeel that, again, mostly dries out in the end. Just makes me hunger all the more for the Grande Reserva. Edit: I later tried this beer against the GR and, while my scores for this beer dropped slightly, I definitely preferred it to the GR, which was a bit disappointing.

330mL bottle to mini snifter.
Lot B4DD. 2008 Vintage. Sampled 20JAN13

[A] Loud pop upon uncapping. Poured slow. A small light tan head rises and fades rather quickly - although a thin crescent shaped collar remains throughout. The body is very dark garnet with bright ruby highlights at the edges - and throughout when backlit. Impressively clear.

[S] Big, juicy red grape notes stand out to me more than anything else. Other dark red dried fruit aromas blend in. Raisins, raspberry, strawberry. Light cardboard on the end.

[T] Big, jammy fruits. Perfectly sweet with adequate bitterness and oaky tannins to counter. The flavor is super smooth - but it does drop off quickly. Oxidation is evident as it should be for a 4-5 year old bottle. Whatever the spices that were used in the making of this beer, I cannot tell. Alcohol is well masked.

[M] The mouthfeel is damn near perfect for a quad. Silky, slick and very smooth. The body is medium-full for the style. Alcohol warms slowly to a gentle heat long after the sip. The carbonation is light and fine. The prickling sensation is very even throughout the palate.

[O] For me, this is what a quad should be like - except that I would prefer a little more complexity on the nose and more duration on the flavor. I think a younger bottle would solve this, as well as the oxidation issue. Overall though, still a great experience.
