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.

Dark reddish brown beer, nice lacing once again. Lovely sweet, complex and vinous aroma, the alcohol is more present here than in the original but it smells like heaven itself. So malty, spicy, fruity, now with some nice wooden notes mixed in rather than distracting the whole like in Pannepot Grand reserva. So soft yet very warming, you can feel the alcohol mostly when it has already gone down your throat. Superb beer, at least as good as the regular pannepot which makes it a perfect beer or perfect beer plus for me. Got to get more of this, If I had to drink only one beer for the rest of my life it would be this one. Still gay for Pannepot, have to five the bastard and shut up now before someone gets annoyed with me.

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.

adasko (267) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 25, 2014
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 (201) - 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.

Straling (359) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
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.

12oz bottle (2010 vintage) pours dark toasted brown black with small thin head and tons of floaties. Nose is fruity plum, grape, earth, wet soil, touch of roast, multi grain bread. Taste is creamy smooth mouthfeel, red grape, grape jam, plum, some subtle roasty bitter chocolate notes. Finish is more of the same with lasting roasty fruit, dark grains, some vanilla. Complex and nice.
