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.

2010 vintage bottle fomr the Trembling Madness in York. Pours mahogany with no lasting head. The aroma is port, oak and booze. The taste starts with a little sweetness and light spice before flavours of raisin, port, wood, leather and tobacco. Loads of flavours going on. Quite a boozy too, but enjoyably so. Quite high carbonation. Great beer.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2015 Du fruité : cerises et fruits rouges mûrs et massérés.De la liqueur.De la douceur.Un corps qui porte sans trop en faire.Un taux d’alcool qui, present, n’emporte pas tout. Excellent. Meilleur belge brune ?

JorgeLee (1463) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle from the Struise shop in Bruges. Brown, quite high carbonation. First thing I noticed was how insanely drinkable this is, fruity, cake, a little yeasty, spicy, hints of the oak. Sweetish but bitter enough. Really nice, I’d want to re-rate to confirm how good!

Niall73 (2284) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2015
2010 bottle at home while in Amsterdam. Pours a dark reddy brown with a tan head. Big dark fruit, rummy, raisin aroma. Medium body, full carbonation. A surprising lack of body - thin. Still very sticky, with liquorice, treacle, light vanilla, a light smoky meatiness, rum and dark fruit. The after taste is a bit cloying and a touch metallic. Just OK.

Vintage 2009 Aroma is very wine like. Pours near black with a lace of nearly white head. Taste is delicious. Rich complex malt, with just enough roast to keep it from cloying. Thick. Light carb. Some wine flavor. Dark chocolate, coffee, Toffee, caramel?
