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.

330ml bottle at home to oneself. 2008 vintage. Pours dark brown with an off-white lingering head. Lovely tight bubbles. Aromas of apples and wood, demerara sugar and a hint of all-spice. Some of the calvados comes through about halfway down, giving a slight boozey burn. Other flavours include dark stone fruits and vanilla. Lovely and complex beer, but finishes oddly thin for a 10%er.

Pours dark brown with almost no head. Aroma is oak chips, vanilla, muscovado sugar, dates, figs. Taste is dates, figs, muscovado sugar, burnt oak, vanilla, dark fruit. Aftertaste is surprisingly thin. Might have past its best before date. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olr1984 (917) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2013
2008 bottle pours dark brown with a khaki head that sticks around. Man the aroma is big oak and bourbon. But the taste is very complex and held up extremely well. Amazing beer that hides the alcohol very well.

One of the most complex beers I have ever tasted. It would take me a full page to describe all the different flavors that fight for your attention. Truly brilliant.

2008 bottle. Pours a darker brown with a khaki colored head of foam. Not much retention. Aroma is like a spiced apple with clove, banana, vanilla icecream, some booze. Tastes a bit spicy up front with a smooth malty sweetness evening things out in the finish. Really nice. Much preferred to the regular reserva.
