This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a dark ruddy brown color with a slim white head that dissipated to a soft glaze of lacing. It slid nicely. The smell had a soft sweet dark fruit with a light sweet cherry, a little bit of coffee and a light chocolate shaping the aroma nicely. The taste was mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors and gave an extremely sticky dark fruity aftertaste leading to a sweet wet fruity finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was barely there but that’s okay considering this was a 2009 bottle. Sweet smooth sticky notes cling nicely to the feel of the beer over my tongue. Overall, oh wow, what a wonderful Belgian Strong Ale.

Another gift from my friend Thijs... a 2010 vintage 33cl bottle with a "best by" date of 15DEC19.

Filled a small tulip with a dense, opaque, oily colored brew. Head is fine and thin, a light layer of tan suds, with minimal lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits layered atop each other with traces of cocoa powder. Feel is mostly smooth, with a medium body.

Flavor has some currants and figs, raisins and dates in a vinous mix. Throw in a hint of dark chocolate, more cocoa powder, a bit of dark cherry and there you go. The alcohol is well hidden, with no burn at all to speak of. A very tasty, satisfying dessert bier. Prosit!

330 ml bottle into chalice, 2011 vintage bottling. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy very dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, date, apricot, apple, berry, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, and oak; with lighter notes of chocolate, cocoa, molasses, clove, vanilla, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/bready/light roasted malt, fruity yeast, and moderate oak notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, date, apricot, apple, berry, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, and oak; with lighter notes of chocolate, cocoa, molasses, clove, vanilla, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light yeast spiciness and herbal/roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of dark fruit, cherry, apricot, apple, berry, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, oak, light chocolate/cocoa/molasses, herbal, yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roasted malt, fruity yeast, and moderate oak flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky/chalky/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 10%. Overall this is an incredible oak aged Quadrupel style. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roasted malt, fruity yeast, and moderate oak flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the big ABV. Incredible yeast/malt complexity in perfect balance; nice oak presence that is never overwhelming, tannic, or drying. A highly enjoyable offering.

Served in a goblet glass from a vintage 2011 bottle.

Appearance: Thin brownish Amber body with a tan head rising half a finger's length.

Smell: Light sweet raisins and hint of yeast.

Taste: Sweet and complex grapes with smooth malts. Feels a bit like wine and bread.

Mouth: Full bodied with hints wood and has a dry feel which honestly makes the brew pretty addicting.

Overall: Descent brew which exceeded my expectations. Juicy and touch sour but well worth it. Salud.

What a great surprise. I was expecting this to be heavily oxidized given the age. Instead this is one of the better quads I have had in quite some time. Pours with a dirty muddled color. Aroma is slightly muted but the dark fruits take lead here. Taste is slight oxidation, rich malty backbone, luscious dark fruits such as dates and figs, slight oak and a bready back end. No alcohol in aroma or taste - it is nonexistent. Mouthfeel is what leads here. It is thick and chewy; full bodied.

2010 vintage, on tap at the brewery. Aged in St. Emilion casks. Phenomenal beer with a strong wine influence in smell and aftertaste.

2010 Vintage. Still has great carbonation well after the pour, fizzy and cola-like. Nose has lots of toffee malt, nice oak woodiness and a little of the classic dark fruit Belgian phenol. Taste is the same combo but with those phenols jostling for more attention. Definitely a classic quad with all the right flavors - fig, cola, chocolate covered cherry, phenol - though I struggled to discern the oak and what that brought to the table. It has been a bit since I have had the regular Pannepot but I don't think there was much added by the additional aging beyond smoothing out some of the flavors, which is certainly beneficial as I found regular Pannepot to have a tad too much tannin flavor.
