"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).

McNeillR (1645) - SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Dark twilight brown, thin tan cusp. Greasy, brassy oak and licks of plum and tinselly oak. Lean brassy, husks of wholemeal soaked in soft balsamic and light caramel flurry. Bit thinner than the previous two stages, but finishes longer brassy and resonating appley tannin with a slushy oak linger. 2010 Vintage. 4.0

Hazier, neater crust of a head. The nose is incredible, baked apple and rustic vingear. Crusty burnt bakewell tart, roasted oak and licks of righteous, hearty mulched apple. Why is this so much more calvadossy than the 5 year younger version! Thinner, no doubt, but a few drops more sweetness on the finish. Linger is bullish and vinious.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 27, 2015
Flaske 330ml. Gave fra Rune. Svart. Høyt mokkafaget skum som faller raskt sammen. Forsiktig sjokoladearoma. Silkemyk munnfølelse. Smaken rosiner & svisker. Bra - men lite variasjon. Alkoholen brukbart kamuflert. Litt bunnfall.

Shark_Pants (405) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2015 Deep dark pour, almost impenetrable, small tan head. Very inviting aromas of port wine, raisins, oak, leather. The taste is really one to savour - sweet port wine, raisins, dates, plums, with oak tannins and a light smokiness helping to balance the sweetness. Nice warming alcohol. The body is lighter than expected but is probably a good thing, as it helps the sweetness avoid becoming cloying. This is just as memorable and enjoyable as the standard Pannepot. Incredible.

MonsterMagnet (500) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle, 2010 vintage, bottled 2014. Pours black with a cream head. Aroma: wood, prunes, raisins, apples, clove, nutmeg, dates. Taste follows with caramel, syrup, cinnamon, touch of roast. Sweet, but not cloying, nice complementing bitterness, creamy texture, full body, soft carbonation. Lasting finish. Lovely, lovely.

Bottle shared with daje, edvard and Simonsen at The "Esp0r #2000 Weekend in The Woods" 2014
Dark brown, tanned creamy head. Smell of raisins, dark fruits, toffee, hints of toast, red wine and oak. Moderate sweet, port and other vinous characters, hints of funk, raisins and prunes, dark rich fruity malts, totally quite exequite. Moderate bitter, earthy hops. Very nice, though i have to say the regular Pannepot is better

Opis wersji "podstawowej": Butelka, 2014. Piekny wyglad - przy nalewaniu zachowuje sie jak bardzo geste, lepkie, oleiste. Piana sliczna, kremowa, nawet lekko wpadajaca w czerwone odcienie, bardzo drobna, niezbyt wysoka. Opada niezbyt szybko, pozostaje cienka warstewka, lekko zostaje na szkle, widac tez bardzo delikatne lzy na brzegach pokala. Aromaty bardzo bogate, karmel, ciemne owoce (sliwki, wisnie, banany), suszone owoce (rodzynki, sliwki suszone), przyprawowosc dosc nienarzucajaca sie, zbozowosc, slodowosc, kawa, nawet czekoladowo-kakaowe nuty. Alkohol praktycznie niewyczuwalny. Smak analogiczny - wszystko to czuc. Praktycznie brak goryczki. lekkie rozgrzewanie gardla od alkoholu. dlugie, owocowe, kwaskowate posmaki (jedyny zarzut ktory mi wpada do glowy - zbyt kwaskowate). W ustach pelne, niesamowicie kremowe, gladkie. Bardzo niskie wysycenie. Na chwile obecna: najlepsze piwo jakie mialem okazje pic w zyciu :)

W wersji Grand Reserva (2010, butelkowana 11/2014) piwo jest ewidentni inne - aromaty i posmaki z beczki po Calvados sa bardzo intensywne - winne, jablkowe (jablka nieco przytlumily inne owoce, ale wcale nie do konca), ciut bardziej kwaskowate w smaku i mniej kwaskowate w posmaku. Wszelkie zalety wersji podstawowej (poza moze piana - tym razem skapa i szybko znikajaca) sa zachowane. W ustach wydaje sie wrecz lzejsze,,, Niezwykle bogate i zbalansowane. Trudno mi byloby wybrac pomiedzy nimi - oba sa wyraznie lepsze od skadinad wszak tez doskonalej wersji Reserva.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
330ml bottle 2010 vintage from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours opaque black with menacing beige head. Aroma is light cocoa and liquorice, continuing to the taste with caramel, cocoa and light liquorice nudging in. Exceedingly drinkable with a soft complexity but impressively well balanced.

milo91hd (154) - Lecce, ITALY - MAY 12, 2015
Bottiglia vintage 2010. Colore nero con un cappello di schiuma beige abbastanza persistente, aroma di malto tostato, frutta sotto spirito e mi sembra vaniglia. Al palato è piuttosto oleosa come corpo con note di caffè, malto tostato e cioccolato e nel finale si fa sentire il Calvados, l’alcool non si fa mai sentire in maniera esagerata nonostante i 10°. Una birra favolosa.
