"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.

pastymc (39) - Niscemi, ITALY - MAR 4, 2016
Bottiglia da 33cl. Molto scura, con sfumature rosse, schiuma poco persistente. Al naso inebrianti note di caffè, torrone, cacao, frutta scura; poi un leggero erbaceo a bilanciare le note finali di whisky e rum affinati in botte. L’entrata in bocca è decisa ma morbida; il malto tostato conferisce leggere note di pane integrale, con vaniglia, frutta secca e scura e caffè a fare da contorno; chiude leggermente alcolica, con un lungo e piacevole finale amaro, che combina luppolo e malto. Molto corposa. L’adeguata carbonatazione rende la bevuta ancora più viva e interessante di quanto sia già. Birra con grande equilibrio, struttura e complessità.

kajser27 (1271) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 4, 2016
Dark brown to black colored, small tan head, not very lasting. Aroma is of brown sugar, molasses, raisins, bit honey, light vinous, oaky, bit booze. Taste is medium+ sweet brown sugar, molasses, dark fruits, raisin mostly, chocolate, oak barrel, light vinous, some spice, some alcohol but mostly well hidden. Full bodied, soft carbonation, sticky syrupy. Real sipping material! (2010 bottle, Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte)

KykoPatykar (21) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 2, 2016
Aroma: Caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. Appearance: Dark brown to black, tan 1-finger head. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, very complex, very balanced. Palate: Full body, creamy slick texture, soft carbonation, long sweet finish. Overall: Basically the same as ordinary version of Pannepot and Reserva version, the "worst" of this trinity in my opinion.

Bottle shared, thanks Jon. 2009 vintage. Rich raisin character, chocolate cake, liquor, sweet finish with a boozy edge. Great stuff if not a little past its prime maybe.

Piana pękająca, błyskawicznie znikająca do zera, jak na coli. Barwa brązowo rubinowa, lekko mętna. Aromat ciekawy, nie jest może ekstremalnie intensywny, ale wielowymiarowy - jest wanilia, jest stare drewno, jest rum, karmel, toffi, rodzynki, ciemne winogrono, suszone jabłko, tytoń, paloność... W smaku fajny balans pomiędzy nienachalną słodkością czekoladowo-daktylową, niewielką kwaskowatością od palonych słodów, cierpkością śliwki wędzonej oraz szlachetnymi nutami porto, sherry, calvados... Goryczka niska, korzenna. Alkohol dobrze wpasowany, niewyczuwalny. Nagazowanie średnie do niskiego, lekko wyklejające, choć nie gęste w odbiorze.
Pannepot Grand Reserva leży gdzieś w pół drogi pomiędzy Pannepot Reserva a podstawową wersją Pannepot. Jest tu nieco paloności, dymności, czekolady, sporo waniliny, drewna, tanin, i suszu owocowego. Taki miks z dobrze ukrytym alkoholem i bez gaszingu. Super!

willisread (2272) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle from Jon shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! 2009 vintage aged about 6 years. Brown sugar, sorghum, light oak and rum raisin cake all over the nose. Below average to soft carbonation with a full, rich body. Loaded with rum-cake and dark fruit. Lingering finish with light booze, sorghum and fruit that coats the palate. Very nice.

Pours almost pitch black. Dark. Brown, with a beige head. Aroma has some bread, a bit of woody oak barrel, beautiful depth. First sip is sweet as a dessert. Roasted malt, dried dark fruits and a nice milk chocolate finish. Complex and enticing, Glad I could taste this. .

Maakun (3571) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle 2009 at home. Very dark brown with beige head that leaves barely any trace. Fresh figs, dates, dried dark plums, brown sugar, port wine, red wine reduction, marzipan, licorice, spices, cocoa beans. Just lots of sweet dried fruits and oxidized vinous notes. Quite sweet with soft bitter finish. Over medium bodied with low carbonation and slick feel. Massive beer, very complex and enjoyable. I’ve had better Pannepots before but this holds its own too.
