Bought this by mistake when trying to stock up on the regular Pannepot, so I guess it's time to review...

Very dark brown pour with about a quarter inch of head that leaves behind a collar of bubbles. Smell is extremely sweet, mostly raisins, apple skin, and caramel. A bit of booze and tartness are apparent.

Taste is not-quite-ripe dark fruits, sweet caramel, apple, the mildest of sour notes, banana bread. On the full side of medium bodied, just fine in that area.

At first I was unsure of this beer, but eventually the sour notes got to me and I really started to not enjoy it. I'll stick to the regular Pannepot.

2006 bottle. This dark brown ale pours with a thickness that informs the imbiber this is some serious stuff. Nice though small head, with an unctuous mouthfeel of molasses, caramel, and baking spices. I could envision myself being an old fisherman getting off the boat after a long cold day at sea and knocking back a few flagons of this to slake my thirst. Excellent stuff, will drink more.

2007 bottle, reads "Pannepeut" on the label.

A bit of a gusher. Dark brown with tan head, looks exactly like the Monk's ale version.

Smell is lovely. There is the rich oak, dark fruit aroma and heat similar to a well aged alcohol. There is more of a yeasty aroma than the Monk's version, and the alcohol aroma seems a bit more present.

Rich caramel goodness, with coffee and cocoa leading the show. There is also a good bit of spice in the flavor. It seems like the kitchen cabinet approach, with all sorts of different spices. Definitely more spiced than the other version. There is some yeast flavor as well, reminds me of many of Alvinne's selection.

Full mouthfeel, not as coating and viscous as some quads, but very satisfying.

Definitely drinkable despite it's 10% alcohol, although the spices get to be a bit much after awhile.

2006 vintage. Pours a rich brownish red color with a thin, lingering head. Aroma is virtually non-existent, some very faint malt aromas and slight boozy alcohol nose. Was expecting more from this beer. Taste was very malty and sweet - caramel, and dried fruits dominate. Dried cherry flavors seemed to be most present. Medium-bodied and sticks to your mouth. Overall, fairly easy to drink given the alcohol content.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Received as a generous extra from psprings. 2006 vintage.

Rich malty appearance, deep and ruby colored with a small head. Sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Foam is easy to stir up, but is lazy and recedes.

Complex malty and estery nose. Not too strong, but deep and rich. Notes of rich dried fruit like raisins and plums, and a hint of dusty fresh malt. Cherries and bourbon come forth as it warms a bit, making it a bit medicinal. None of the "Smarties" aroma I get off of many highly acclaimed Belgian quads.

Totally different than what I expected. Those big cherries with a hint of booze is the first thing to come at you, and it's a tidal wave! Some snappy tartness rushes by but seemingly not from the cherry aspect. Aftertaste is positively spot on for a lousy strong vodka cranberry...but this is the beer world and something about it is interesting and captivating. Alcohol heat is just barely there, but big firm chewy maltiness and sticky sugary sweetness are there and in your face. One big huge malty Belgian beer. Points for being so bold and interesting. It all comes together like pure, delicious, obnoxious gluttony.

Challenging mouthfeel. It's pretty viscous and sticks to your mouth. There is a mild prickly carbonation that just barely keeps it's head above water in this thick murky brew.

A few sips are nearly enough to satisfy anyone's curiosity; beyond that is filling, dehydrating, and intoxicating, not to mention rich beyond belief and it's got a week's worth of sugar packed into one glass. Drinkability is fair therefore.

Cheers!

I'd had the "regular" version of this before and really enjoyed it, so was looking forward to trying this one to compare.

Opened the cap and turned my head for a second, next thing I knew Ol' Faithful was shooting out of the bottle all over my desk and floor. When things settled down what was left of the beer poured a dark brown with tons of floaties and a smallish tan head which left minimal lacing.

The aroma was excellent. Plums, pears, molasses and a bit of alcohol all came together in a nice and inviting way.

Taste matched up with the smell as far as what was picked up, however I felt the scent was more pleasing. That's not to say it tasted bad, it didn't. In fact I had a hard time deciding between giving this another half point or not. However I felt that the smell wasn't perfect, so didn't deserve a perfect score, and the taste wasn't quite up there with the smell. So, it gets a strong "good" in this area.

Mouthfeel was really good. Very smooth with a bit of creaminess, and just the right amount of tingle.

This is an enjoyable beer which makes a great winter warmer. I liked the "regular" Pannepot just a bit more, but wouldn't hesitate to have this one again.

2006 release poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark reddish brown color with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of Belgian yeast, spices, caramelized malts, dark fruit and a little bit of hops.

T: The taste is spicy and sweet up front with flavors of caramel & dark fruit. The Belgian yeast character is quite strong and it's also a little creamy. There's a hearty malt character and a mild hops presence. The after-taste is also spicy and sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly sticky finish.

D: Tasty, goes down ok, not very filling, strong kick, good representation of style, it's a decent high strength Belgian beer to drink for a while.

Bottle into snifter in the cellar at Ebenezer's.

Deep chestnut brown with thick, foamy head that dissipates slowly and leaves lacing.

Malty sweet, dark fruit, Belgian yeast, caramel. Inviting.

Extremely smooth and balanced. Rich, malty, sweet, dark fruit, yeasty, vanilla, and a bit boozy. Yum. Perfect.

Smooth, rich, full side of medium bodied, easy on the carbonation.

I could drink this all night or maybe even forever. I'm a sucker for a good quad, and this is a great quad. My non-beer geek girlfriend, whose rare beer choices are typically coffee or chocolate porters, even liked it. Thank you Chris and Frank

07 bottle from 515 in Santa Cruz. Poured into a goblet. Dark opaque russet with a slight reddish tinge. Creamy beige head leaves some lacing. Aromas of black cherry yogurt, a dusting of coriander, brown sugar, and caramel. Flavors of dark toasty caramel, maple syrup, brown sugar, nutmeg, cherries, berries, and coriander. Nice complexity and insane smoothness. No trace of alcohol. Body is a couple notches thicker than medium. Well-attenuated and so easy to drink. Great beer.

11.2 oz bottle with the year 2006 front and center on the label

Poured into a snifter. Dark brown in color with just a thin film of head on top.

Smell is raisins, sweet candy, and figs. Taste follows suit. Very sweet, but not cloying, and no discernible alcohol burn despite the 10% on this one. Not bad at all.

Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is decent considering the style and ABV.

This beer was served chilled in a wide mouthed goblet. The beers vintage is 2006.

Appearance: The pours a nice mahagony coloration. The head resolved to a ring of light biege / tan coloration. Small specs of lacing remain on my glass.

Smell: Man this beer smells fruity in a good way. Apples, pears, plums, grapes, raisins, banana and plums combine with brown sugar, cloves and all-spice. Something is generating a vague sour aroma. The alcohol has a very pleasing boozeyness nearing cognac.

Taste: The fruityness of the flavor isnt anywhere near what I would have expected from the aroma. Apple, dark fruits lead the sweet malty charge, alcohol is present in the flavor in a very boozey way and dries the beers flavor out. The malts are toasted running to just shy of nutty and vague suggestions of cocoa. Not bad but doesnt seem to have the kick of Panepots regular offering.

Mouthfeel / Drinkability: The mouthfeel is a bit shy of full bodied. The carbonation is low but works with this beer. The body of the beer doesnt seem to be as thick an viscous as the Pannepot I had the other night. This is still a very good beer. Drinkability is good. Given the choice I would drink Pannepots regular offering over this beer.

Big thanks to Prufrock for this beer.

Appearance: This beer pours a dark mahogany with amber highlights around the edges with a decent sized two fingers worth of head that had fairly good staying power.
Smell: The nose is full of cloves, nutmeg, dark fruits, and a slight acidic vinegar twist to it as well.
Taste: The flavor profile is full of dark fruits including cherries, raisins, and plums. I also get some concord grape jelly in there in as well. I get a bit of coffee and a bready malt that works well here.
Mouthfeel: This beer is full bodied with lots of fine carbonation that renders itself quite smooth and creamy.
Drinkability: Even at the high ABV the alcohol is hidden and this was a great and relaxing drinking experience.

From what I understand this is the Denmark versions cause of the slashed O and the explanation that this was brewed for the Danish Ale Festival.

Another consistent De Struise beer. Poured into a tulip glass.

Pours a brown with reddish hue. Light caramel head literally bubbles up with carbonation and slowly dissolves away. Smells typical belgian yeast esters, caramel and dark fruits, too be expected. Taste falls in ling with the aroma, add hints of vanilla and bourbon. There is a chalky after taste that really dings this beer for me. It also hinders the mouth feel. The flavors are everything I love and should be expected from a Belgian Brown Ale but chalk on the tongue is never appreciated. The bourbon/vanilla intensifies as the beer warms. Enjoyable, probably will have it again but never more than one.

2006 bottle, it definitely is the Denmark version as it's spelled Pannepøt and not Pannepot on the bottle.

A- Poured into my Brewer's Art chalice leaving the dregs behind. Pours a dark brown, somewhat clear even though it's dark with ruby highlights. Finger thick light tan head forms but drops almost instantly.

S- at first it's quite one dimensional with sugar plum. As it warms up more of a chocolaty and roasted grain husk is brought out.

T- Fruity and spicy is dominant, but notes of chocolate and lightly roasted malt adds a ton of complexity. Light red wine like fruitiness. Sugary sweetness in the finish and very mild bitterness.

M- Carbonation is a little prickly but that can be worked out fairly well by swirling. The texture of the liquid is very nice, in the lighter medium range.

D- One of the best Belgians I've had. Probably the best quadrupel, although it was harder to tell with Westvleteren 12 because I only had a 1/2 bottle sample of.

Reviewed on 7/4/08. Bottle. Pours a light cloudy brown with a small tan head (lighter body than Pannepot and the head is not as creamy and thick). Aroma mostly of light fruits, spices, and spicy crisp apple. Flavor of Belgian yeast, spcies, light fruits. It tastes so fresh! Not as complex as the Pannepot but I like the lighter fruit presence. Palate is not as creamy. I think I preferred this to the Pannepot.

Pours into my goblet a brown color with a creamy 1 inch off white, almost khaki color that dies down very slowly. A slim creamy layer rests in the middle of this one with lacing that hugs the side of the glass. Smell is of dried figs, some raisins, and caramel sweetness. Some grape, and wine type aroma dominate the back end. Taste is almost like vinegar tartness, very different from the regular version. Creamy texture to this one makes it a nice very smooth finish.

33cl bottle poured into my large St. Feuillien goblet, the 2006 Pannepøt is a dark, muddy chestnut with lots of streamers exploding off the laser etching up the sides of the goblet, forming a small khaki head that fades to a fairly thick collar and skim, leaving moderate lace. As carbonated as it is, I'd expect a larger, rocky head.

Nose is very strong, sweet brown sugar, raisins, banana's foster, spices, sherry and alcohol. Much brighter then the regular Pannepot, and incredibly alluring. I wish I was having this with some kind of rich dessert drizzled in caramel right now!

Taste is sweet and robust, but countered by plenty of spice to keep it from being cloying. In-line with the suggestions of the aroma, although rounded and not as bright. Light phenols and only a hint of it's high ABV speak to the high level of execution. Exceptional indeed, although I'm sucker for sweet and rich, which you'll find here in spades.

Mouthfeel is very creamy and rich, and the body is on the heavier side for a quad, although it's still got the appropriate level of digestibility from the sugar. The carbonation is really nice. It would've probably foamed out had I not had my goblet on hand, which is impressive given the age.

Drinkability is very high, since I'm absolutely loving this beer, although it's one of my favorite styles. Better then the regular version IIRC, although I've only had it once, about a month ago.

Milk chocolate brown color, spicy/hoppy/malty nose, sweet toffee/raisin flavor, somewhat heavy cloying finish that shows off the alcohol well when warm. Really damn good beer that tends to leave you wanting more. What the hell? 250 Characters?

Ok this beer is not as good as it's Denmark-free version Pannepot (but it's still really good).

Taste: Sweet, bready toffee maltiness laced with sugary treacle. The fruits carry over from the scent and join the sweet mixture in a taste like melted lollipops. Soft cinnamon spiciness. Subdued yeast character. Very sweet, candyish finish.

Pours murky brown, good amount of sediment, with a very small light tan head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma is a nice sweet caramel maltiness with spice, a rich and meaty red wine aroma as well. Also berries and apple in the aroma as well as evidence of the alcohol strength. Taste is outstanding blend of sugary and caramel malts with a nice ginger and spice flavor. A nice tangy apple flavor balances the sweet and spices very nicely. Hints of root beer flavor, a drying finish welcomes in a brief punch of alcohol warmth. Medium in body, low carbonation, slightly slick feeling at the back of the throat. Very good beer, great taste, everything comes together very well. I'd also say this one is a great candidate for some ageing. Very interesting to compare to the belgian version.

Pours a murky brown with a head that quickly disappears. Very little lacing. Sherry like nose, with dry vinous and slightly oaklike aromas. Some sweet malt on the finish as well as raisins. The taste is somewhat similar, but there is a much richer fruitiness with prunes, chocolate, and dark cherries added into the flavor profile. Sherry like finish is still there, but with a hint of sweetness at the very end. Quite nice. Mouthfeel is smooth, substantial, and creamy. The alcohol is clearly there, but not in an overpowering way. Not quite as rich as some quads, or as sweet. More like an amontillado to the others oloroso, but still quite enjoyable for its own style.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a murky deep brown color with a very bubbly tan head over top that falls to a full coat. Clarity is fairly good on this one and there are tons of tiny bubbles cascading up and helping keep the head around. The nose on this one is nice and raisiny, with a blast of spicy yeast that reminds me of cinnamon, followed by a deep and sweet candied sugar sweetness. Taking a very deep inhale over top brings me a solid yeasty breadyness at the end. This one is very aromatic, with the sweet malty and sugary notes playing the staring role. My first sip brings a more subdued flavor than I would have expected. I find a mild raisin fruit with a very mild caramel and sugar sweetness behind it. There is a mild banana fruityness playing in the background along with a niticable yeasty character that imparts a breadyness. Mouthfeel is thick with a very mild carbonation. This one has no slickness as I would expect from the strong sugary aroma. It is very smooth. The only hint of the ABV I find in this one is the slight drying quality on the finish. I enjoy the strong aromatic component and very solid flavor (but more subdued from the original version). I enjoy this one quite a bit.

2006 Bottle, Sampled August 2007
Pours with a mix of tightly beaded froth topped by larger bubble bath sized foam, both which add up to an initially three finger thick, creamed amber color; the head leaves a touch of lacing on the sides of the glass as I work my way through this beer. The beer is a drab mix of dark amber and brown notes, but shows a beautiful, brilliantly clear, ruby-red color when held up to the light. The aroma is an interesting, rich-leaning, mix of earthy spices, rich-concentrated fruits and dusty darker malt notes. Aromas of prunes, figs apricots, caramelized apples, hints of cherries and fresh cut sweet / tart plums make up the concentrated fruit portion of the aroma. These notes are boosted by malt notes of caramelized grain, brown sugar, and sugar glazed, browned bread crust. The earthy spice notes add a subtle balancing note with touches of allspice, clove, cardamom, fenugreek . Hints of warming alcohol towards the end mix with the fruitiness to sort of give this a brandy-like edge. Really the fruit character (which strangely was the third thing I noticed after the spice notes and malt) is the dominant note in the aroma.

Rich enough to coat the mouth with a little bit of stickiness. The alcohol and some spice-like notes cling to the palate adding a spicy, slightly astringent almost woody note that lingers on in the mouth after the beer has passed down my throat. This beer is definitely sweet, but there is so much going on here that I am always distracted by other flavors and sensations before I think too long on the sweetness. There is that woodiness that I mentioned (definitely noticeable & distinct to my palate, though somewhat subtle) and this pairs with a really subtle not that is almost peat like (a mix of salt, umami and smoke). Soft spice notes of cardamom, nutmeg, sassafras, birch, perhaps a touch of licorice and a bit of pepper in the finish are all noticeable at times, but all are soft enough to actually keep me guessing at what might be the spices & what is from the fermentation character; this is of course the sign of a beer that has been spiced properly, as I don't want to be hit over the head by spices in a beer, but instead want them to add a nice, yet subtle backdrop that always keeps one guessing. I definitely like how this beer feels so rich, but does not become cloying or sticky.

I am not sure of the difference between Pannepot and Pannepøt, but they are certainly different. This beer seems to be a touch sweeter, and not nearly as aromatically fruity as Pannepot. I'll definitely have to do a side by side of these two to explore them a bit more in depth. As the beer warms up it loses a touch of sweetness, yet strangely notes of brown sugar and even molasses become evident. Still that woody, almost peat like, spiciness is quite noticeable and it starts to mix in with a touch of warming alcohol towards the finish. Definitely another really tasty offering from the Struis Brouwers. I can't wait to crack my bottle of Aardmonnik!
