COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pannepot Reserva was an idea from my brew collegue Carlo who wanted to age Pannepot in genuine French oak barrels (barrique 225 liters). We have brewed 90HL at the end of 2005 which has been aging on oak ever since (14 months). 30 Hl was bottled Tuesday 8th May 2007. 60Hl has been transferred now to second hand calvados oak vessels and will be bottled again early autumn 2007, we will name that batch Pannepot Grand Reserva. As quality and results rule at Struise, the Reserva was already brewed again and aging on oak.

AndresTM (302) - Vienna, - DEC 25, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 2009. At first sniff, I got prunes, spices, yeast, sour apples, banana peel, figs, and dark cherries. It was amazing enough already, but then I let it sit for a bit and dove my nose into the glass again and, oh, Lordy! It was the greatest thing ever. Mountains upon mountains of toffee, all bursting with fruity esters and spices. The alcohol is barely perceivable, if at all. The taste is sweet and fruity tart, with residual bitterness. It evokes figs, dark cherries, caramel, and apple cider up front and culminates with mellow, woody undertones. The mouthfeel is smooth as silk, with minor carbonation and a medium body. Otherworldly!

Bottle shared by esp0r with me, Simonsen & Edvard, september 28th 2013, thanks a lot! Dark brown, redtinted, with light brown head. Aroma of toffee, cocoa, prunes, spices. An ever changing comples taste starting with coffee and dark sugar, going through dark chocolate, berries, raisins, pine, pepper, bready malt. Excellent and a joy to experience. Alcohol is pretty well hidden for a 10%, still giving a warm feel towards the end, where the beer feels more fruity together with hints of oak. This is one of the beers that just make you smile. I love it!

2010 bottle, consumed 16 Mar 2014, Solidly aged flavor, slight hint of oxidation which is not offputting yet, but any more and it would be.. I love the taste of aged pannepot normally, and this is no different the aging on oak doesnt impart as much flavor as I would have thought, almost a drying type finish but not much else.

Bottiglia 33 cl, del 2009, ordinata su birraland e bevuta a casa. Nera con schiuma evanescente. Legnosa, liquirizia, un po' di caffè. Corpo pesantuccio, difficile da bere ma buona ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

falco242 (217) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2014
For a 2008 vintage, this has held up remarkably well. A sweet bread aroma and taste with a wonderful burnt caramel flavor with vanilla. Really impressed with this one.

cards04 (1459) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
A magnificent Belgian ale. 2009 version. Pours a beautiful deep brown with wispy white head and sediment. Aromas are a bit metallic at first... but open to sweet dark dried fruit.. Raisins and prunes, dried apples and bubblegum. Flavors are sweet bubblegum and more dried fruit. A nice bitter oakiness rounds this beauty out. Very good.

Jabic (386) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2014
2008 Vintage. Ar: Plum, leather, rasin - a touch of sherry - rum and white pepper. Ap: Murky brown - tiny off-white head with poor retention, leaves a foam ring and rare wisps on the top. T: Deep raisin and brown sugar - peach, plum, treacle, a bit of nougat - warming alcohol, but exceptionally clean - subtle, complimentary oxidation - low bitterness, a bit of mossy hop flavor - toasted malt and fig on the finish. P: Full body with medium-high carbonation - finish is medium. O: Rich and complex dark Belgian strong ale - delicious mix of fruit and dark sugar - substantial and warming, but very eloquent, not harsh or hot.
