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

Pannepot on Port? Why not?

A - Brown beer with a tan foam head that left lots of sugary stickyness on the sies of my cup.

S - Lots of port, very fruity smelling ethers with some nice sweet cherry. Good brown sugars. Great smelling beer all around.

T - Taste does not disappoint on this one. Truly a fantastic beer. Very sweet with that good candied quad taste, brown sugar, fruity yeast. Touch of vanilla and a little wood. Loved this beer.

M - Almost full bodied, lower carbonation.

O - Loved this beer, went back for a second pour. Might get overly sweet if you tried to drink a ton of it, but I'd welcome the chance to find out.

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.

2018 release of the 2014 vintage, aged four years in Bordeaux barrels. Big jammy, tannic tartness, significantly different from the standard Pannepot. Much of the spice and quad character has gotten overshadowed by the wine once it hits the palate.

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.
