2007 bottle served in an Orval goblet on 11/16/2009

Aroma - Deep, rich aoma of dark fruit. Some apple. Very wine like. Mild alcohol. The aroma is very upfront in this beer

Appearance - Dark brown with a red hue. Very little light gets through. Tan head poured 1 fingerwidth and stayed at one fingerwidth. Very nice head retention. Ok lacing.

Taste - Much like the aroma a very deep rich flavor of dark fruits and dark sugars (molasses); however, it's not sweet. This is followed by caramel malt and spicesSome bitterness I believe due to the alcohol. Slight lingering spice and bitterness. Complex beyond my words.

Mouth Feel - Heavy body. Several reviews say low carbonation, but it has a lot of carbonation; however, it is very smooth. Alcohol is present, but is not hot and is very well covered. Lingering spice and slight lingering bitterness. Almost cloying.

Overall Impression - This is different from the quads that I ususally drink (St. Bernardus 12, Gouden Carolus Grand Cru, etc.), but it is definitely a great beer. If only I could get this on a regular basis. I can't speak to the accuracy of its world wide rating, but I can understand why people would rate it so highly. This is a must get if you can. I would even recommend mail ordering it if you can't get it locally. As and after thought, I think Gouden Carolus Grand Cru is still my favorite quad.

Thanks to Smalls for hooking me up with this beauty! Nice ruby-brown pour with a quickly fading head and great lacing. Unique nutty nose with prunes, oak, caramel, red wine, and a touch of vanilla. The taste mirrors the nose and is just as complex. The nuttiness and complexity makes this stand out from other quads I've had. It reminds me of a nice red wine. Very woody and smooth and the vanilla and oak get really noticeable as it warms. The alcohol is really well disguised. Definitely the smoothest, most drinkable and enjoyable quad I've ever had. Another world class offering from De Struise!

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a Struise tulip.

2009 Vintage

A: Pours a dense and rich deep brown with 1/2 a finger of exceedingly creamy, dark khaki colored foam. Retention was excellent with some semblence of head lasting till the final sips.

S: Brown bread, banana, coconut, bruised dark fruit, rum drenched raisins, fudge brownies, and chocolate chip bread pudding.

T: See above with the addition of toasted caramel, clove, molassas, vanilla, and chocolate covered cherries.

M: Warming and sweet with an awesome alcohol burn that keeps everything in check.

0: Another classic entry in the Pannepot series. Keep 'em coming!
