2010 reserve drank in 2015.

Looks very dark mahogany. Very oaky, but like a clean woody oak. You get the booze on the nose as well as sticky fruit. Boozy and oak cask flavours prevelant with sticky fruits and a bit of chocolate at the end.

Pours hazy deep brown with a huge light brown head. Aroma is wineous, roasted malt, dried fruit, raisins mainly. Flavour is soft malty sweet. Strong fruity and complex profile, really lovely blend. Alcohol makes a short appearance. Slight smoked note and soft malty caramel with a strong alcohol note in the finish.

I tasted the 2010. Deep brown color with some redness on the edges of the chalice. There was barely any head and it faded pretty quickly. Nose of fresh cherry, raspberry, and dark chocolate. This beer had a heavy (overpowering) sour cherry tang with a hint of chocolate coming through on the finish. It was a bit more sour than I was expecting.

This looked and tasted more like some variant of porter or stout than a quad. If someone had told me that it was made entirely from fermented molasses it would have seemed believable. Too syrupy and cloying. Not complex like a Trappistes Rochefort 10. Too heavy. Did not finish a 5 oz. glass served as part of a beer flight. Worst of all, it was a bit of a palate bomb and subsequent beers didn't taste as good.

Very good and flavorful beer. Similar to the regular Pannepot, but less heavy and the spices stand out more distinctly.

Pannepot Reserva Vertical(2009, 2010 and 2011(Old Fisherman's Ale)) 10 smells the sweetest, 09 is earthy with dark fruits and 11 has huge Belgian yeast notes. 09 - chocolate, dark fruits, oak. Absolutely zero sweetness. 10 - super smooth, chocolate covered cherries, oak. Little bit of sweetness. 11 - raisins, prunes, clove, oak, Belgian yeast. Sweetest of the bunch. I'd have to go 10 > 11 > 09. The 09 was just way too dry.
