COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Vintage 2005"
Our PGR has aged for 24 months on oak barrels and has been bottled for the first time on the 27th of December 2007. The main difference with the Pannepot Reserva is that PGR matured the last ten months on Calvados oak barrels, adding extra complexity to the beer. We dedicate this beer as a tribute to Jeppe & Michael of Ølbutikken in Denmark. Those gentlemen were the first to discover our beers on an International basis back in 2004 and are responsable somehow for our beers being all over the globe since then. As a token of gratitude towards Jeppe & Michael, the first shipment of PGR was scheduled to Ølbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

2008 bottle very dark brown with a large tanned head. aroma is sweet, chocolate, raisin, dark brown sugar, some wine notes. taste is smooth and sweet with apple brandy. complex, spicy, with restrained (coffee) bitterness. cherries, chocolate and calvados oak are abundant. At a push, i’d take the standard pannepot for its smoother profile, but this is still fantastic (probably better than the reserva).

Incredible beer. Aroma deep and complex. Wood, dark malts, candi sugar, fruits like figgs and dry raisins. It has a very dark brown appearance, the palate is quite exceptional. Taste is so smooth and so complex without being overdone.

RW80 (1223) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
330 ml (vintage 2010) Appearance: Pours a dark brown color without a real head. Aroma: Prunes, molasis , wood, candy sugar, nuts, alcohol Taste: Starts moderate, but lingers to really sweet, but the earthy hops save it from becomming cloying.. Sweet malts, toffee, treacle, molasses, figs, prunes , spices,cloves, cherries, oak,Alcohol is not really there i the taste. Earthy hops finish it off and avoid cloying sweetness.. Quite complex. And after 1 bottle you clearly haven’t noticed everything. So a very nice complexity. Full body, moderate carbonation, light sticky texture.

10%ABV. Strong Porter. I opened a bottle of properly chilled 2010. Poured out of the bottle with no head. 40°SRM. Black brown color like the local coffee in Singapore, carmelized till it pours out black as sin. Sweet nose full of prunes and honey plums, with a little more brightness so that you don’t get a lot of preserved fruit. This is special since strong porters tend to have that tang of preservation in the nose. Light residual wood smoke in small wisps with honey and caramel. Very pleasing. Very inviting. Lightly carbonated mouthfeel with a moderately alcoholic palate. Brief bitter hops and then a very smooth slide into vanilla beans, honey dates, leaf tobacco, toffee, dark chocolate and some burnt sugar syrup. All ponderous flavors but floating on an ether so light and perfectly balanced with just enough hops to bring each flavor to the fore without being cloying. Goes on Favorites List big time!

stefannilssons (1530) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2015
Jajamen, det här var riktigt gott skit. Smaken var fint balanserad på en behaglig och stabil kropp. Smaken bar toner av plommon, ekfat, russin och belgisk jästkultur. Slutsats; sluta skriva börja dricka!

Palate: sweets continue, dark, overripe fruits, caramel, oak, brown sugar syrup, some alcohol, long, subtle finish.

Shared a bottle of this with Rachel at Bierboom in Brugges. First ever beer on Belgian ground. I was amazed to see a beer like this for sale for only 3euros. 2010 bottle. Pours murky dark Brown with a small beige head. Potent aroma of sweet boozy malt. Prune juice, candy sugar and rich woodiness. It tastes sublime. Sweet and warming. Notes of raisins, prunes and burnt sugar. Amazing depth of flavour. Tremendous barrel ageing. Incredible beer.
