"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. Pours deep deep brown with tan head that deflates to a thin layer aroma is deep and rich. Boozy fruit cake. Oak leather vanilla coffee notes. Taste is huge complex mix of caramel, toasted malt , fruitcake , muscovado sugar , sour cherries , oak all in perfect balance. High carbonation suits very well Alcohol is very well hidden , only appearing as a pleasant warm afterglow ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2009 vintage, 330ml. Thanks to Robertdale. Dark brown. Lots of dark fruit. Raisin, fig, plum. Slight aweetness. Oak. Doesn’t have the banana like Belgian yeast that’s typically a turn off for me with this style. super smooth.

Zymurgeist2 (1104) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 17, 2014
2009 Vintage. From bottle to tulip. Aroma of fig, autumnal harvested grain field, black cherry, candi sugar and sweet bubblegum. Pours a near-black brown with cola highlights. Head is dead brown with minimal lacing. Leaves a slight creaminess across the top. Taste is massive dark fruit and plenty of alcohol warmth. Complex layers of raisin and dried prunes. Moderately high carbonation and a sweetness that lingers deep into the taste.

Sten (674) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2014
Dark beer with a beige head. Aroma of ginger cookie, dark fruit, medium sweet, caramel and vanilla. Flavour is very nice and complex, caramel with dark fruits, a bit spicy and some fresh hops (Bottle 33cl 2008)

czar (4679) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
pours unclear dark brown, burgundy tint, with a creamy light beige head, reviving and leaving nice lacing. sweet and pisy plums, dried raisins and caramel soaked in bourbon, light tennessee banana esters, but also apples, very spicy - mint, cardamom, oak, wood - very astringent, sweetness - demerara. lively to average carbonation, light to medium body - oily, very spicy and tannic finish. good tasty stuff, but i still prefer regular pannepot and pannepeut.

Beese (2555) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from Bruges. Poured a really dark brown, near black, with a dense beige head. Massive aroma of big dark malt, Belgian yeast, black pepper, oak, leather and berries. Super smooth mouthfeel. Treacle in the flavour, with roasted malt, fruitbread, liquorice and dark fruit. Finish was dates, some earth, bitter burnt, Christmas pudding, chewy malt and alcohol. One of the best.

ElManana (511) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Pours dark brown with a white head. Aroma of sour, caramel, malts, hints of oak. Taste is oak, which lingers around in the mouth for quite some time. Malts, caramel, hints of banana and an evident taste of alcohol.

Part of a wonderful day in Bruges sampling Pannepeut, Pannepot, Reserva and Grand Reserva. The Reserva is clearly the best, especially in terms of balance of flavours. All must be tried. The wife thought Pannepeut was second best and really should be sought out more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hauled this 2009 bottle back from Bruges, Belgium. Pours dark brown in my glass with some purple showing in the edges where the light comes through. Small off white head that disappears pretty quickly. Aroma of dark fruits, figs, plums, light molasses and even chocolate, candi sugar. Flavor is sweet plums and figs, molasses, brown sugar, light chocolateyness, and a smooth nuttiness from the barrel. Age showing a bit here with some oxidization going on. Thick body, low plus carbonation, really rich and palate coating. Nice beer but would like to try one a bit fresher as this wasn't nearly the level of Reserva or even the regular version. Still yummy though, which speaks to how good those are.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 Très bon palais, avec différents goûts d?épices. Légère une fois avalé, puis l?arrière goût arrive avec un goût de calvados mélangé à d?autres goût . Très bonne Bière, bien équilibré. Ressemble par certains aspect à une bière de Noël

Ulysse (121) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle 2009. Mixed aroma, hints of stout-like roasted malt and some stronger alcohol which I guess is the calvados oak barrel touch. First impression is its amazing palate. Complex taste, lots of spices with a fruity shade.
