Vintage 2005

Dark brown with next to no head.
Smells like dark fruit, plums, figs and cherries along with some booziness, brown sugar and malts. All very smooth though.
The taste has an initial sugary sweetness that makes way for dark fruits and alcohol and a dry finish where the oak is definitely noticeable. Very smooth and subtle.
The mouthfeel is very smooth and with just enough carbonation to make it feel light and quite easily drinkable for such a high alcohol brew.

Overall, I like this quad I appreciate the fruity flavours but I've had better quads. I'd love to pick up a normal Pannepot to compare ti with though.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

2005 vintage.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, candied fruit, and slight cardboard aromas. Taste is much the same with candied fruit, caramel, and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that seems a bit old and oxidized at this point, but it's still fairly tasty as is.

grand reserva vintage

pours quite still, dark thick cola black. basically no head

sweet dark fruit candy, faint leather, sherry, and plum.

has some oxidation for sure however i do not feel its taking away from the flavors. the sherry flavor is quite nice. well rounded subtle complex dark fruits and rich candy.

mild to moderate carbonation, just enough to liven up the body and the flavors. felt it complimented the flavors perfectly.

old, yes. but still drinking well IMO

2005 vintage courtesy of Steve...thank you!

A nice dark brown with a good half inch cap that rings and puddles.

Plenty of wood and wet paper along with tobacco leaf and chocolate. There's a nice roasted coffee here as well that's unexpected.

Interesting quad and not wholly anticipated: coal, dark fruits, figs, and molasses encompassed by a sweet sherry-like sweetness. Red grapes and roasted coffee on the back end with lingering port qualities.

On the low end of carbonation with a moderate body that shows it's age while still holding its ground.

Sophie Marceau...aging but still plenty well put together.

2005 Vintage, apparently this is the first batch. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice very dark mahogany hue that would be clear if not for how dark it is. Nice half finger light tan head fades to leave a creamy halo and a thin cloud.

S - Aromas of well, an old quad. Definitely oxidation, light caramel, brown sugar, darker fruits, figs, faint vanilla. Like someone else said there is some sherry notes.

T - Taste is figs, oxidation/cherry, with a strong chocolate and coffee finish. Almost port like this is not bad, just not expected. What's really unexpected is the level of chocolate and coffee and lightly sweet dark fruits on the finish. Pleasant.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, slightly silky, alcohol is hidden nice.

O - Overall, perhaps I should have drank this a few years back but still glad I did not. Nice complexity here.
