09' into Westvleteren chalice.


Pours a dark garnet with fluffy dark tan head that lingers quite nicely.


Aroma is pungent of ripe dark fruit, plum, Bordeaux, pomegranate, oak, molasses, and hints of cherry cordial.


Taste follows the nose closely and presents rum raisin and holiday fruitcake as additions. Velvety, balanced, wonderful.


Mouthfeel is medium bodied with just the enough carbonation thankfully so after spending almost 2 years in barrels.


Overall this is fantastic. Better than Reserva and quite possibly better than the best standard Pannepot that I've had. The use of calvados barrels as a finish is what really elevates this higher than the standard oak aged. Great wine, grape,plum, and rum flavors that aren't as prominent in the Reserva. Hope I can find more of this.

2005 vintage.

Murky brown appearance with a thin head that actually stayed around longer than I expected, especially at this age.

This is a great smelling quad. Tons of toffee and caramel apple notes. Candi sugar as well, wish some spiciness.

Taste is great too. Again, tons of toffee and caramel apple. A bit of oak on the back end, nicely complex. A slight hint of tartness even. Those Calvados barrels are really nice. Definitely one of the better quads I've had. Nice bits of candied sugar and spice as well. Very complex.

Mouthfeel is fine, low carb and almost creamy, pretty on par for a quad.

I've never had this bottle fresh, but 9 years has seemed to do well for this beer. The apple notes really separate it from other quads out there, I would definitely pick up another bottle of this to see how a fresher vintage is.

Hauled this 2009 bottle back from Bruges, Belgium. Pours dark brown in my glass with some purple showing in the edges where the light comes through. Small off white head that disappears pretty quickly. Aroma of dark fruits, figs, plums, light molasses and even chocolate, candi sugar. Flavor is sweet plums and figs, molasses, brown sugar, light chocolateyness, and a smooth nuttiness from the barrel. Age showing a bit here with some oxidization going on. Thick body, low plus carbonation, really rich and palate coating. Nice beer but would like to try one a bit fresher as this wasn't nearly the level of Reserva or even the regular version. Still yummy though, which speaks to how good those are.
