Drank the 2012 at Beer Mania in Brussels. Absolutely amazing beer! Very complex, smooth with a slight sweetness. This is one of if not my all time favourite beer I've ever tasted!

2010 bottle consumed on March 22 2016.

Pours good and looks great, with a hefty head that lasts for a while and some lacing.

Smells like raisins, flowers, sugar and countryside. A quad, yes, but a lot more nuanced/smooth.

The taste follows the nose, with dark fruit, figs, pureed dates, sweetness and a tad of freshly-licked oak.

Unfortunately the mouthfeel is shot and gone; watery-thin, oxidated and damaging to the quality of the beer overall.

Overall this brew is nice enough and rather drinkable for the ABV, but it falls way short of the expectactions.

I would assume that drinking this fresh(er) would be advisable.

330ml bottle. 2010 vintage. Bottled on 2014-11.

A: Hazy dark brown. Poured 1.5 fingers high of head.
S: Caramel, toffee, and oak. Hints of raspberry. Quite aromatic.
T: Toffee and chocolate. Medium sweetness. Low bitterness. Hints of vanilla aftertaste.
M: Full body. Moderate carbonation.
O: Perfect. I cannot get wrong for this beer. The best thing is it's easy to be obtained with fair price.

Gonna be a short review on this one. Pannepot reserve 2010 in bottle at the church key dc. It was very smooth and mellow, perhaps too mellow, a bit roasty, no real bitterness to speak of, in short...ehh it's okay, just okay, that's it

Serving Type: Bottle (2010)
Consumed: 12.29.15

A: 4.75 Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a one-inch tan head. Head lasts about three minutes and leaves some lace in the glass.

S: 4.25 Fairly mild aromas of vanilla, cherries, toffee, cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, and a hint of damp oak.

T: 4.75 Really well executed and strong quad flavors. Lots of Belgian yeast and eaters with a nice, bold roasted malt quality. The oak adds a surprising amount of vanilla. Dark berries and a bit of dark chocolate and coconut linger on the finish.

M: 4.5 Great body and carbonation with a slightly dry finish. Very drinkable.

O: 4.5 This is a really great quad with bold flavors. Stays true to more traditional beers, but the oak transforms this into something new and interesting.

2010 vintage, enjoyed in December 2015.

This beer poured murky dark brown, with very little head present. What head was present quickly became a thin ring of bubbles along the top of the beer. The smell is where this beer picks up the pace, all of those deep dark fruit scents one usually associates with a big quad, along with the oak that melds in to give it an almost sultry smell. The taste is a continuation of the smell, and the dark fruits are joined by vanilla and some wine qualities, and then the oak is there again. This is quite enjoyable. The feel is medium, with a slightly above low amount of carbonation. This beer is smooth.

A very nice beer for sipping on a cool December afternoon, I only wish I had more, or at least easy access to more.
