"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.

Rödbrun nästan svart med. Torkad frukt och fikon lite jäst i doft. Intensiv smak och fyllig munkänsla. Len och trevlig, lite samma smaker efter en hel flaska ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2009 Vintage and happy to get a chance to rate this on a cleaner palate. Much thanks to willrunforbeer. Dark brown color no head. Aroma is very nice, massive dark fruits (raisins, dates, figs) with a definitive amount of spice and notes of yeast.

Just a great sipper all the way around. No alcohol in the flavor. Full body with the malts and yeast giving the dark fruit and Spice hints that are very balanced. No one aspect of the flavor over-powers another. The most impressive thing is at 6 years old it shows no oxidation or flaws. That actually really amazes me. That being said, it is a top Belgian strong ale with good reason.

11.2oz, 2009 vintage. Pours dark brown with a surprising beige head. Aroma is brown bread, raisin, cinnamon, spice. Wow! Flavor is off the chart! Sweet, raisin, date, cinnamon, spice. Molasses finish. Amazing for a 6 year old beer.

Pours a black body with a brown beige head. Starts out light, quickly bringing on a taste of oak along with roasted notes of chocolate and caramel, with small hints of coffee.

Muggus69 (1673) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2015
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel. Vintage 2010 Sort of surprised I overlooked this beer - always figured there was just 1 Pannepot, and that was it. Deep, nearly opaque bronze beer, holds a creamy tan head. Decadent, almost fortified wine-like nose to it- burnt toffee, earthy dark candy sugar, licorice, lots of raisins, date, dried figs, sultanas, prunes, yet still plums and blackcurrant esters in there too, savoury clovey spices, black pepper and nutmeg, and old oak. Carbonation is quite high, smooth, slighlty velvety, rich body yet doesn’t give away too much of that substantial abv, just a flirting of warmth. Richly complex palate - dark brown sugar, bruised apple, sultana, freshly ground nutmeg, burnt fig, nutty old port-like rancio, dried leafy herbs (almost like bay or sage or something). Bitterness relatively high for style, really long drawn out finish. This is the sort of ale you’ve gotta take your time, hide away in a dark corner and just thoroughly enjoy every drop of. Sitting in front of a roaring place seems apt enough for this tasting. Needless to say, this is just fantastic!

Aroma is dark fruit/grapes and a real hint of heat/alcohol. The flavor is dark fruit, grapes, malts, mild heat, slight funk and a mix of sour and caramel sweetness in the finish.

martjoobolut (1905) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 13, 2015
2010 vintage (from beergium.com). Pours brown with beige head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is sweet, apples, malt, oak, raisins, and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet, malt, oak, cellar, fruits. Overall: very good.
2005 vintage (shared by FatPhil, thanks!). Pours similar to fresher one, aroma is sweet, buttery, oxidised, more raisins. Flavor is sour, fruits, wood, oak, malt, some sweetness. Overall: I liked the fresher one a lot more, it was more intense. Rating for 2005 vintage: 6:3:7:3:14=3.3

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
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.
