This beer has been a longtime want of mine. 750ml bottle into a tulip appears a very dark brown with thin khaki head that is quick to fade and boast minimal retention power due to its low carbonation.

The aroma is peimarily brown sugar raisons and caramel/molasses that comes off very similar to plain old pannepot that isnt barrel aged.

It tastes the same with molasses, caramel, raisons and brown sugary notes. A faint kiss of fruity alcohol and seemingly no barrel notes or oxidation despite a proclaimed 5 years of barrel aging.

This is medium in body and light in carbonation. Its ok but very much akin to plain jane pannepot which is a fraction of the price of this. Somewhat of a let down.

World class beer.
Little on the heavy side.

236th Review
On-tap at Fermentoren in Copenhagen
Served in a mini snifter
Vintage: 2008

Enjoyed on 10 May 2012: A nice surprise en route to the Sour & Bitter Dinner in Copenhagen - thanks Pinball (on the "other" site) for guiding us here.

A: Dark chocolate brown. Half (mocha) fingernail head.

S: Smells of dark dried fruit, port, and hint of Belgian yeast. Touch of spice and oak with more port barrel. Very inviting!

T: Follows smell exactly - in the best way possible! A lot of sweetness on this one (I assume from the port barrel), but very rounded, smooth, and big. Similar to the other Pannepots, but the uniqueness of this is really fun and enjoyable.

M: Full bodied with smooth carbonation.

O: A really fun beer that is deep, complex, and tasty! This could convert a vino to craft beer side for sure.

Pannepot on port! I was excited to see this on-tap at the Struise shop in Brugges.

Appearance: Pours a reddish brown with a finger of tan head that fades to a thick ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Sweet brown sugar, dark fruit, molasses, port, caramel.

Taste: Like the smell, sweet dark fruit, port, caramel, with a bitter sweet finish

Medium to thick body, smooth carbonation, dry finish

Really lucky to try this, so smooth and the flavors mix beautifully. I would have again
