The Pannepeut – Old Monk’s Ale gets confused with the more widely known Pannepot – Old Fisherman’s Ale but I was assured they are not the same. This is a huge Belgian Strong Ale with great depth and complexity. It had a malty sweet almost brown sugary taste with notes of rich caramel and dark candied fruits. It had a medium bodied mouthfeel and hid its high alcohol content really well. It was a great gift from my dad as De Struise makes World Class beers and this is no exception. I may never have this one again and it’s a shame. If only you could get their beer in Texas!
