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.

Inbreak (1897) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
17.04.2014, 0,33l bottle (2005 vintage) @ Belgobaren:
No head, just some bubbles. Aroma is sweet, butterscotch, caramel malts, raisins, burnt caramel, almond cake, dark sugar, oak, spices, alcohol, grass, licorice. Taste is raisins, grass, caramel malts, citrus peel, alcohol, oak, burnt caramel, butterscotch, old rope, spices, hints of licorice and almond cake. Medium bitterness, slightly watery and mineraly mouthfeel. Nice, but maybe it’s a little bit over the top?

At Stephens with Stephen and Dave. Pours murky brown. Aroma is some cardboard, figs, raisins, light fruity notes. Taste is some oxidation, silky soft caramel. The beer is right years old at this point, it has really smoothed out, but is slightly too oxydized.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Eric. Thanks man! Pour is murky brown with a small tan head. Big bready, caramel, slightly oxidized, banana, dark fruits, red licorice, figs, and raisins in the aroma. Taste is bread, cardboard, banana, raisins, dates, brown sugar, belgian yeast, and soy sauce. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not bad for its age and I can see the potential, but this one is definitely past its prime.

’08 Bottle from tiong-thanks! Deep brown with some mahogany red. Nose is initially ginger ale, and cola, becoming more belgian quad-like with brown sugar and prunes. Thinner than I expected. Cola, brown sugar, some dried dark fruit. Not really oxidized, but I think everything is muted here and this is on it’s way out.

Pours a rich deep brown with a thinner than expected tan head. The body of this beer is beautiful though. Aroma hits you as soon as you start pouring it into the glass. Pull it closer to your nose and it fills your nostrils with hints of cherry, brown sugar, oak, whiskey, and dried dark fruits. Very complex aroma, very appetizing. Flavor is bold, but not as bold as the aroma lets on. Dark fruits, wood, molasses, cigar smoke, and charcoal flavors are all intertwined in this delicious beer. Also, at 10% abv, the alcohol is expertly hidden in this one. Not nearly as boozy as you’d expect. The beer is smooth on the palate and is carbonated perfectly. Not quite as full bodied as I’d like but that’s nitpicking at this point. Overall this is one of the better beers that I’ve had in awhile and will probably break into my top 5 "Belgian style" ales. Very good beer.

Rating #1017 - March 7, 2014 - Derek’s #botw and #beerguychrisgeekbeer for #week9. Bought 3 of these, one for review and two for the cellar. Dark brown pour with a bubbly tan head, decent retention.heavy on carbonation Aroma is quite fruity. Full bodied. Creamy, buttery mouthfeel. Taste is ripe black currant, raisin, toffee, spiciness. Extremely smooth finish and a lingering taste of sweet malt. Superbly smooth, candy and red wine feel throughout. Fantastic.
