2011 Vintage - Pours a very dark brown - quite clear - good head which died and left a film.

Nose is malty sweet with some dark fruit, cherry, fig and port wine.

Palate is less sweet with some coffee and a little chocolate in the finish - medium mouth.

Very good overall - complex, good balance - not too cloying.

Highly recommended.

2011 Vintage Pours clear, dark reddish brown in color with minimal head. Taste is fig, prune, raisin with light oak and dark cherry. Sweet, medium bodied for the style, with moderate carbonation. An excellent quad. I think I prefer their regular Pannepot better, but wow what an excellent quad. Well worth seeking out.

Vintage 2011. Dark fruits, bourbon, roast, and wood make up the nose and taste. Dark, murky, brown color. Moderate feel, maybe even like "flat cola" too. Overall, a really great quad!

11.2 fl oz. bottle, vintage 2010, bottled 11/2014 printed on the label. Found a bottle of this stuff sleeping on the shelf at the local bottle shop. "Old Fisherman's Ale Aged On Oak". I had the regular Pannepot Reserva, so now here's this..

Poured into a Central Waters snifter glass.

A - Pours a dark brown-black body, with some cola colored hues showing around the edges and near the surface. Conjures little under a finger's worth of frothy tan head that falls down a ring. Appears slightly sticky, but doesn't leave much lacing behind.

S - Aroma is musty, damp, woodsy, oaky. Subtle notes of cola & spice present themselves. Some bourbon-soaked dark fruit presence - figs, dates, prunes.

T - Taste follows the nose: damp, oaky, woodsy, & musty, with lots of lingering dried dark fruits - prunes, figs, dates.

M - Feel is smooth, slick, slightly creamy, with some dark roasty malt bitterness, dampness, mustiness, and pervasive lingering dark pitted fruit finish.

Overall, i was not terribly impressed by this one, especially when you consider the good scores this one has gotten.

2011 bottle consumed in September 2016. Thoroughly enjoyable, hits all the right notes... sweet, bready, heady, well carbonated. Notes of plum, raisins, "barrique", fortified wine and butterscotch. Lovely, delicate, assertive.

Very solid beer. Only thing that would keep me from getting more would be the price point, as it is a little pricey for the amount.

2005 vintage. Holding up very well all things considered. Purchased at whole food las vegas for $10. RIP chris (their beer guy) who picked this one out for me.

2010 vintage.

For the most part this was the decadently boozy fruitcake of a Quad I was hoping for. It does mostly harken back to the other versions of Pannepot that I've tried and loved. I'm just having a hard time getting past the green apple at the finish. I understood going in that the Calavados barrel would impart some apple, but I can't help but perceive it as a defect. Aside from the apple, I can't discern much influence from the barrel.

This one is a miss for me and an expensive one at that.
