Vintage of Pannepot - Old Fisherman's Ale
Belgian Strong Dark Ale
This beer is no longer being produced by the brewery.
Big nose of umami when cold but after breathing, umami gets displaced by huge nose of chocolates, some oak, dark fruits and mild aged musk. Super interesting! On the palate, sweet caramel, oak, aged musk, dark fruits and a huge dark chocolate middle....
Poured flat, traces of minimal carb in glass. Nose is dusty and musty but with more of a malt presence than the 2007. Started strongly umami but mellowed as it opened. To me this is more flavorful than the 2007, bitter malts, mellow fruits like plum.Earned the The Dark Side (Level 47) badge!
