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.

2008 bottle (at Kulminator in 2013): Incredibly complex ... where do I begin? Immensely rich with intricate notes of dark-fruit (raisin, fig, prune), chocolate, cooked caramel, brown sugar, and Sugar Daddy candy. Amazingly, it didn’t seem overly sweet, as the alcohol, subtle roast and bitterness balanced it out well. Chewy, milkshake-like texture. After every sip I discovered new flavors, and I didn’t want the beer to end.

Bière ou merveille, merveille de bière en tous les cas. Quadruple de 10% abv, définie par le brasseur comme une « old fisherman’s ale aged on oak ». Couleur plutôt marron extra foncé que noir (bien située par le brasseur comme une « hazy dark brown ». Opacité totale. Mousse d’un café expresso, joli nappage crémeux (creamy beige). Arômes de malt torréfié, fève de cacao, chocolat Lindt noir 75 %, whisky Macallan 15 ans, fruits secs, pain 7 céréales. 1ère bouche veloutée qui est un pur plaisir concentré, une anthologie en elle-même. Arrière-bouche large, vaste, que dis-je … gigantesque, avec du café, chocolat, malt et levure. 2ème sur un ensemble fruits secs/bois/candi avec une fine pointe de cookie. 3ème bouche, comment dire … tout est dans ce breuvage : fruits, bois, malt, épices, levure .. et un équilibre strictement diabolique... La longueur donne des milliers d’impressions gustatives supplémentaires, qui en font presque un monde de science-fiction !! La levure est une veine sidérante, fine, soyeuse, un rien d’épice d’Orient en direct. L’alcool : quelle valeur en soi pour soutenir pareil brassin, une force colossale, mais il assume parfaitement. La finale est un pur nectar venant de la marmite des dieux. CONCLUSION : il faut dire d’abord en préalable que coter cette bière sous la cote de 4,7 est une ineptie … (cela fait quand même 63 personnes sur 880 qui sont du bon côté de la balance !!!). Ceci dit, pour moi, c’est la grandeur des grandeurs, la splendeur des splendeurs. Son altesse la Sérénissime Pannepot dans sa version mûrie en fût est tout simplement un sommet de l’art brassicole. Un pur absolu... la texture est divine et le brassin paradisiaque. Pour mon 555 ème rate, je peux ainsi donner un 555 sur 100... C’est magnifique, comme dit Arno... Elle rejoint ainsi son amie la St Amatus !! (au paradis évidemment!)

The colour is like a dark chocolate. Huge light brown head but it dissolves quickly. There’s roasty malt flavour and liquorice also. Hints of caramel and lots of undefined spiceness. Warms up the throat quite fast. Good beer but maybe just my type.

Syndicate (86) - Idaho, USA - AUG 27, 2014
this is the 2008 version. Poured a seriously dark brown with a quickly disapating head. Big heavy aroma of date and fig and belgian goodness that puts a smile on my face. Carbonation is perfect with this one and it really coats your palate. Flavor is very sweet with the same fig/date flavors sprinkled with some spicy notes, maybe nutmeg, lasting long after you finished. I really liked this one.

Wow. Has aroma of dehydrated plums, cherry and a bit of port wine. It’s dark, non-transparent. With amazing beautiful head. The head looks like it was nitro carbonated. In taste - honestly, I was speechless. There are notes of plums, chocolate, cacao with a note of port wine. In mouth it feels highly carbonated. It’s very drinkable cuz alcohol is unnoticeable. The body is rather small and thin.

wvhoran (203) - Tasmania, - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle, 2010. Hazy dark brown with a medium-sized lasting beige head. A rather powerful aroma with sweet malt, woody barrel notes, both fresh and dried fruits notes (figs, raspberry) and spices (clove, cinnamon). Complex, inviting. The flavour is smooth, sweet, fruity, and dry. The dryness comes from the barrel. Warming alcohol. A really very complex and lovely beer.

Pannepot Resrva 2010 : bottle from saveur-biere.com A brown robe with a tint of ruby red. The head was deep beige. On the nose a strong aroma of prunes, apricots, candy sugar, toasted wood, figs and hints of French pain de epices. On the mouth, it begins with a burst of candy sugars followed by dried fruits, roasted nuts(almonds), tasted wood and hints of english fruit cake(plums and cinnamon). The finish is long with an after taste of figs and candy sugar. This is a complete whole meal beer. Excellent brew.

2009 vintage. Similar to the Grand Reserva (or is the grand reserva similar to this haha). Fruity and roasted nuts in the aroma and taste, goes down great, however I thought the Grand Reserva was just a tad better.
