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.

2011 vintage.

Pours a dark black cherry colour into a glass from a bottle. The liquid is murky and the one finger fawn head recedes to nothing after a short moment. The liquid seems well carbonated.

The aroma is magnificent; sticky plums and cherries, aged port-soaked oak barrel, candied figs, molasses and muscovado sugar. It's rather malty and sweet upfront but you can detect the woody vibe underneath.

The flavour is very rich and changeable; for a dark fruit and woody styled beer, there is a noticeable exchange of chocolate and coffee on the back of the tongue which is rather jarring next to the upfront flavours. Plums, figs and glazed cherries arrive on the sip, and something akin to medicinal cherry drops, before moving to treacle malts, a little black liqorice, and brandy, and ending on baker's chocolate, some vinous coffee and woody hops. It has a nice complexity, combining fruit, wood and malts in a way that is rich, but doesn't come across as cloying or overly syrupy.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, lightly carbonated and smooth like silk.

Overall very nice, like an oaken, black fortified wine with plenty of malty character. Would be great to age it further to see how it progresses.

Bottle purchased and drank at Novare Res in Portland, ME. '09 vintage.

This pours a dark plum brown color, with a very small head, looks lightly carbonated.

Smells like chocolate, brandy soaked fruitcake, oak, maybe a little maple, port, caramel, and toffee.

This is absurdly good. It's decadent, but not overly ostentatious. It's sweet, but dry at the same time, from the oak, and a slight bitterness that I can't really place, with lots of dark fruit flavor, raisins/plums/etc, a hint of Calvados, full-bodied port wine, earthy maple, toffee, and caramel. It's classified here as a quad, feels closer to a BSDA or even a barleywine, or even something entirely different from any of those. Whatever you want to call it, I call it supremely delicious.

This is medium bodied, again, like Blue Monk SR, deceptively full, but not too thick, and a really drinkable for the style and ABV. It went down super easy, but I sipped it slow anyway, because it was so tasty, and I didn't want it to end.

More and more, I find that De Struise is becoming one of my absolute favorite breweries. I need to make it a priority to visit some day.
