Dark chestnut with frothy cap of brown head. Scent is deep and complex with notes of fig, prune, raisin, fruit and port wine, solid notes of dry wood with a sourness is more akin to vatted cask aging than a full on brett onslaught. Taste begins with the big bold notes of dark fruit meshed with a hint of mulled wine, oak precedes a light sour funk that masks a little of the developing quad notes. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Overall, the original is cut an excellent beer that the light bits of brett really don't help too much, it actually masks the complexity.

WW5 bottle from Avalon68. Cheers!

A - Well, right out of the gate this thing just exploded, which was pretty surprising. Rusty brown colored beer with a foamy beige head from the explosion.

S - I'm not totally thrille with this. I've love the regular version of this beer, as something that is a very nice quad. This loses a bit of its quad nature to some of the funk an sourness. It smells good, but I prefer the regular.

T - Sweeter, with some grapes and vinous influence on a quad. There are some dark fruits, oak. Can pick up a little bit of roast on this one even.

M - Full bodied with some pretty active carbonation. Also, it exploded.

O - An interesting beer, I liked it, but I thought it actually takes away from the good quad nature that Pannepot usually has. Glad to have tried it.

Half pour, served in a wine glass.

Dark brown hazy with a nice tan head that dispersed slowly and left a little lacing.

Dried cherry, unsweetened chocolate, acai, some funkiness, spice and light alcohol.

Dried fruit and chocolate in the front, molasses in the middle, tart and funky with slick finish.

Not as good as the as the Reserva but it was pretty good.

On tap at Ebenezer's into a tulip.

A: Opaque dark brown body under a finger of fine light-brown foam. Nice.

S: Spicy, chocolatey, and grassy. Dark fruits, a bit of barnyard, and some light tartness. Very nice, hugely complex.

T: A wild explosion of flavors: brown sugar, prunes, grass, flowers, clove, pepper, grapes, Brett, and a rich maple sweetness on the lightly boozy finish. Intoxicating in every sense of the word.

M: Frothy, thick, and sticky. In a word, big.

O: I was a bit underwhelmed by this one at first (especially given its $14 price tag), but as it warmed the aroma and flavor both opened up magnificently. I'd really like to try it side-by-side with regular Pannepot someday to see exactly how big of a difference the Brett makes; I'm not entirely sure that the influx of grassiness and faint tartness is really an improvement over the spectacular base, but it was still one hell of a beer.

Cheers!

Brown edged black without any retention or lace. Looks like flat root beer.

Dark and roasty with caramel and chocolate covered cherry. Makes me think of all sorts of nightime sexy words like alluring, seductive and indulgent.

Tastes as indulgent as it smells. I can pick out fig, caramel, and dark bread crust. The Brett is very light handed, adding only a little green grape peel hiccup in the middle. Better and better as it warms.

The Brett doesn't really do too much and I think I like plain ol' Pannepot better.

A - Cola colored, off white head with  small bubbles

S - candied sugar, dark fruits, slightly bready. 

T - A bit like the nose. Bready, dark fruits, sweet.  Smallest amount of tart/ sour notes in finish. 

M - Medium, smooth. 

O - Not my favorite of the pannepot variations but very good.

Notes of dark fruit, plums, raisins, are immediately noticeable as is the rich oak notes that are coming at me. Nothing sours here at all about this one. Complex sugary notes dancing around with a touch of a grape skin like tartness hidden way in the back. Interesting mix of flavors here for sure. The balance in flavor here is sublime and I have to admit I am utterly floored. Oak flavor all over this, just wonderful woody notes that are soaked with a rich spiciness that I can only equate the yeast flavor in a perfect quad. Again with the grapes and plum notes offering just that light touch of fruit flavor before melding back into a super dry finish. Small touch of tartness again as it fades away.

On tap at Lions Pride poured into a wine glass.

Pours a dark brown - just like the other versions, it has a small brown head and some tiny lacing but it's subtle. Nose is fairly mild, there is some funk but don't think Cantillon or 3F.

Taste is perfection, I think I've had all the versions of Pannepot but this is clearly the top version, the alcohol is mellowed out bythe funk, it isn't too sweet but it's still complex and nutty.

At $14 a glass its not something I'd have often but it is fantastic!
