Sampled from a 330ml bottle purchased at The Beer Dispensary in Apex, NC. Bottle says 2009.

A - Deep brown with a reddish tinge. Some light makes its way through. A small beige head.

S - Brown sugar, molasses and dark dried fruits.

T - Rich and deep but so so smooth. Brown sugar, molasses and roasted marshmallows. A perception of sweetness without being sugary. The 10% alcohol is well hidden.

M - Creamy and smooth with a moderate carbonation.

O - Fantastic depth of flavors that intrigue and challenge you with every sip.

The Struise Brouwers were at the Borefts festival in Bodegraven, the Netherlands with a lot of super beers. In De Molen, a fine dutch brewery, were a lot of good breweries but the best brewer was The Struise.

Poured in my the Molen tasting glass this beer looks absolutely perfect. This is one of the best quads when you don't like the oaktaste.

Typical aroma of a banana, licorice and vanilla mix. Sweet spicey complex flavour.

Loved every sip of it. I asked Urbain when he is going to brew this pannepeut again because i need a crate of this beer!! I will have to wait a while.

2008 vintage on-tap at Ebenezer's. Cellphone notes. (Also had a 2008 bottle at a tasting later on, changed some things.)

Pours dark brown with a small off-white head. Eventually turns to a thick ring and leaves a bit of lacing.

Much like the smell of the regular Pannepot but less intense. (Chocolate, dark fruits, leather.)

Taste is still excellent, a bit more complexity I think. Chocolate, brown sugar, toast, licorice, biscuit malt, spice, leather, dark fruits and a bit of hops. Absolutely no alcohol bite. Mouthfeel is good but would definitely improve with age.

I love the regular Pannepot and this was close I'd say, but it would only get better over time. The oak adds another level of flavors and smooths things out a bit. Didn't mess with the formula too much unlike Pannepot Wild which I wasn't a fan of.

330ml bottle poured in a chalice.

A: Pours a deep amber to brown color with many particles floating around. Head is medium and very beige. Retention is slow, however it never disappears completely. A small bubbled layer remains with many lacings left

S: Very fruity and sweet. Strong candy on the nose. Notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Wood. Roasted malts and yeasts. Earthy hops

T: Taste is intense. Very tasty beer. Sweet upfront. Candy, roasted malts, liquor, dark fruits. Notes of chocolate and coffee

M: Extremely creamy beer. Molasses. Low carbonation

O: Very close to the regular Pannepot. A bit milder on alcohol and taste but, of course, a brilliant beer

11.2oz bottle (2008 - code A 4 DD) poured into a chalice. Pours a clear dark brown/mahogany with a soft, 1-finger khaki head that leaves behind a nice thin layer of lace.

Aroma is sweet candi sugar, dark fruit, spices and alcohol.

Taste is sweet dark malt, Belgian yeast, candied raisins and figs. Tons of plums, prunes, and other sweet sticky fruits. No hint of alcohol on the palate.

Mouthfeel is clean and smooth, just the right level of stickiness with a dry finish.

Overall a solid quad that hits all the right notes.

Huge thanks to naproxen for this truly remarkable brew. Thanks, Aliza!!

2006 version into the Duvel tulip.

Murky brown pour with a thick creamy constant head that never fades out...

Superbly complex aroma of brown sugar, raisins, grapes, a touch of chocolate, perhaps some earthy oak, and loads of other things that seem to rush up out of the glass at me... Damn, this really smells delicious...I mean really delicious...

Oh... And I'm not disappointed at all... This is just terrific...a perfect blend of sweet dark fruits blended with brown sugar and vanilla with some definite chocolate notes that finishes with the slightest of booziness that sets this off....very earthy and dark...

I'm starting to find a real appreciation for Belgians and this is near the absolute top of those that I've had... I've been wanting to try this forever and to be able to secure the Danish version is extra special... You rock, Aliza!

330 mL bottle, unfiltered, unpasteurized and bottle-conditioned. This is Pannepot aged in French oak barrels; 2008 vintage. Pours deep crimson with some expected floaties, light carbonation and a thin cap of light tan head that retains throughout and leaves some lacing. Smells malty with fermented dark sugars (raisins, plums, cherries, blue/blackberries), spicy/phenolic yeast and some fruity alcohol. Tastes of spice, sweet citrus, raisins and prunes, dates?, and chalky yeast. A little sweet, with some bitterness underneath, and a light winey character that wants to contribute oak, but can't quite push it through. It is very thick and viscous, with low carbonation and a mild tannic dryness. As it warms it lightens and the carbonation increases, which is odd. Not terribly complex, but very tasty, with a pleasant, but restrained oak flavor. Quite an enjoyable brew that is very easy to drink. Well-worth picking up two of these - one for drinking and one for aging.

I poured this from a skinny 11.2oz brown bottle into a stemmed globe shaped glass.

A= Poured a slightly murky brown color with some reddish highlights and a 3/4" cream colored head. The head dropped to a skim and did not leave any real lacing behind.

S= Sweet and complex aroma. I noticed dark/dried fruits like raisin, plum, fig, etc. I also got a good bit of candi sugar and molasses in the nose as well as some Belgian yeasty character. Very very nice.

T= Taste followed the nose with the sugars and the dark fruits again dominating, and the yeast adding its own character secondarily. If I had to compare this to another beer, I would say it reminds me of what a blend of Rochefort 8 and Gulden Draak might taste like.

MF= Medium bodied and showed a medium carbonation level for the style. Lacked effervescence.

D= Very good beer here, and one I will certainly seek out again. Its been a while since I had the regular Pannepot so I believe a side by side is in order!

2010 Reserva. poured into tulip.

A: pours a dark brownish/red. head is slightly off-white with hints of red. retention is decent. no lacing.

S: decent amount of oak with a lot of sweet unfermented sugar. a good deal of fruit underneath, but this is super sweet and relatively oaky.

T: a really rich drink. vinous. plums. figs. sweet heat, but not overwhelming. actually it is pretty mellow. oak is there and you can definitely tell in the finish. dries it out best it can. however, it doesn't completely. lingering fig flavor.

M: lower carb on a full body.

D: not too shabby. a full bodied brew with a good deal of flavor. very complex. the oak is present and adds one more dimension to regular pannepot.

Pours brown in color with little to no head that is gone after a few moments.
Smell is very rich, dark fruits and some alcohol as well. There are some raisins making there presence known as well.
Wow, this is a good beer. Incredibly complex and smooth. There's a bit of sweetness in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium, but it basically dances in your mouth then runs down your throat. Perfect amount of carbonation, almost perfect on the mouthfeel. This is a pure enjoyment to drink.
