330ml bottle poured into a goblet. 2015 vintage, bottled Oct’15, consumed Feb’18.

It pours a deep brown liquid with thick tan silky head and semi-transparent texture that stands with pretty good retention. The head gradually dissipates to a thin lasting foamy film atop and leaves some lacing on the glass-side.

The smell consists of many layers of aroma. First, hit with dark chocolate, biscuit, and toasty breadiness. Then, sweet caramel, dark fruits in kind of prune, plum, and dark raisin as well as candy sugar, molasses, and spice.

The taste is led by big yeasty element of dark raisin, prune, and plum along with obvious spice like pepper and clove. It has big sweetness of candy sugar, molasses, and caramel but fortunately not overwhelming. Dark malt plays as a foundation with its bread and toasted biscuit. No chocolate can be found here through the palate sensation. There is some bitter kick too from its hop and toasted profile.

Medium body with low carbonation but consider proper to the style and palate, the feeling is well-rounded and just right with a pleasantly dry finish.

Very good dark ale indeed with the same Trappist’s quality, alcohol is perfectly concealed underneath the complexity of depth.

So this is the flagship of one of the best brewery around, capable of some masterpieces as cuvee delphine or rye quad.
I drunk Pannepot a couple of other times, but I can't remember clearly how it was so this time I will be more focused on this vintage 2015.
Nice look and a lot of beige foam.
But aroma and taste are funky, at least.
They say it has it all, toasty bitterness but even caramel sweetness.
For me it's messy.
Don't get me wrong, it's definitely a good brew, but a very strange one for the style.
Almost unpairable with bread and cheese, give its best drunk alone.
But t simply it's not my taste.

Surely the bottle was bad. Would try again to be sure.

Vintage 2011 drank just in the last month of the best before (august 2017).

No foam visible when pouring, dark opaque brown with a lot of sediments dancing in the liquid as the glass moves.

Nose is dark candi sugar, caramel, dark dried fruits like raisins, figs, dates, some hints of oak.

Taste is dark dried fruits, almost like raisins soaked in rum, complex layers of caramel and sweetness. Notes of oak character noticeable.

Light carbonization, almost like nothing is happening on the tongue(the age explains it), medium to full body, Nice alcohol warming the throat.

Very nice Quad! Despite the 6 years I enjoyed it, I should try a much fresher one!
