"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 Řlbutikken 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 Řlbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

Vintage 2009

Look: Pours with large mocha head, moderate thickness. Very nice, slow retention, leaves a fine, consistent layer, like pancake dough, fair amount of lacing when going down. Darker brown, amber hue (not as dark as stouts).

Smell: Plums! Like plum wine, sherry and lots of sweet dark and dry fruits, from grapes to berries. The medium sweet malt character is made from caramel, milky chocolate and very lovely subtle roast , very suiting and interesting. Also oak and vanilla.

Taste: Plums are still the most dominating dry fruits, but there are others too. Taste then goes to medium sweet caramel, milky chocolate, candy middle. It is accompanied with light acidity and oak. It finishes with light bitterness, very smooth roast coffee and ends with chocolate lingering in the after. Very small spike of boozy oak at the end with spicy complexity. The spicy complexity is more subtle than in the non-aged ones.

Mouthfeel: Full, medium heavy body, very creamy, alcohol well incorporated.

Overall: It’s a masterpiece, the oak is a subtle gain to the winning formula, but I do miss a bit of the spicy mash-up from the base version of this beer. Overall a bit tuned down but still superb. Every sip is better and different.

wvhoran (300) - Tasmania, - AUG 9, 2014
2009 vintage. Pours a murky dark red-brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma is rather vinous, with dark plum and tannins, vanilla, caramel, slightly woody, a little chocolate. The flavor is sweet upfront with apple, caramel, candi sugar, but balanced with woody vanilla notes, chocolate, cherry, and a lightly smoky, dry alcohol finish. Beautiful, my kind of beer.

adster (427) - HUNGARY - AUG 8, 2014
Hab és szín tekintetében meglehetősen hasonló jellegzetességekkel büszkélkedhet, mint testvérei; szinte átlátszatlan, kávészínű testtel rendelkezik, melyre nagyjából egy ujjnyi vastag habréteg helyezkedik. Tömény, fás és gyümölcsös illatok garmadája szabadul fel percek alatt, erőteljes aromák indulnak útjukra, hogy általuk valamiféle képet kaphassunk a benne rejlő karakter jellegét illetően. Ez esetben azonban mintha minden korábbinál erősebb kisugárzás hirdetné a főzet markáns és testes, az érlelés során kialakult marconább jellemvonásait, melyek egyszerűen nem múlhatnak el nyomtalanul. Vibráló, likőrszerű, mazsolás zamatok járják táncukat az első kortyoknál, melyekhez egy almás savasság és élesztős, ecetes savanykásság csatlakozik, majd a festői képet tölgyfás, enyhén füstös hatás foglalja keretbe. Ez a típus egyébként a Pannepot Calvados érleléséhez használt tölgyfahordóban érlelt változata, innen az almaboros, gyümölcspárlatos szálak. Klasszikus ízek, remekül eltalált és nagyszerűen telítő test, különleges letisztultság és az egyediség hatása.

jaghana (4017) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle 33cl 2009 vintage. A dark beer with medium head. Nose is vinous with dark caramel and light burnt caramel notes. Aroma is sweet and on blond caramel with vanilla touch, lot of red candied fruits, dry grapes, the same nice creamy and smooth body as other Pannepot versions. Finish is on leather and cigar touch, candy sugar, not that complex though.

Straling (363) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2014
2005 vintage. Pours a great murky dark brown colour. Very complex aroma of fruits and roasted nuts. Taste is also very complex, gets better each sip. Goes down like a charm.

StoutHead (673) - DENMARK - JUL 30, 2014
2009 Bottle. Pours a deep red color with a big frothy beige head. Aroma of malt, fruits and caramel. The sweet taste is of malt, coffee, caramel, dark ripe fruits, chocolate, oak, spices and alcohol. Full body and average carbonation. The finish is malty, a bit bitter and with a hint of booze. This one is complex, smooth and very very good.
