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.

tricksta_p (3031) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2016
Bottle at home. 2010 vintage. Aroma is dark malt, raisins, oak, caramel, some chocolate, some booze, ripe sweet dark fruits, spices, plum, hint of wine, candy sugar. Flavour is rather sweet, but it fits the aroma. Body is nicely full and thick. Rich and complex. Great!

pivnizub (9905) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2016
Bouteille(recolte 2006): Almost black, small - as usual - foamy layer; moderate to solid woody and winous nose, caramel and traces of chocolate included; medium to solid sweet flavour with a barely detectable bitterness, full bodied, quite soft; slightly lingering sweet vinous and caramelly finish with supporting traces of wood. Good, no doubt. But I expected an extra…

lello4ever (512) - ITALY - JAN 6, 2016
Bottiglia del 2010, invecchiata 5 anni. Nera con schiuma beige molto sottile. Aroma liquoroso, alcolico, caramello, dark fruits. La bevuta scorre piacevole, consistenza oleosa, liquorosa, avvolgente, dolce ma non stucchevole. Birra invecchiata alla grande. Carbonazione leggera. Splendida birra da meditazione.

BenOver (245) - SLOVENIA - DEC 19, 2015
Poirs dark with minimum head which diminishes quite quickly. Strong aroma of roasted malt, oak and cognac. Taste is very full and sweet, almost no carbonation, excellently balanced and still quite drinkable for a 10 vol% of alcohol. A fine beer specimen.

rafaelagp (27) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle in a side by side comparison with Reserva 2010, drunk in a teku glass. Thin brown head of no retention. Aroma was quite muffled initially but developed fully as the beer got to room temperature, featuring sweet malt notes, plums, a bit of alcohol and dried fruit. Body was medium with little carbonation. Taste followed the aroma with a spicy finish not as lasting as the Reserva, but in all in all the flavor was almost perfectly balanced. A beautiful beer, worth the rep.

Ysok02 (755) - MOns, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2015
Robe rubis dense. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes de vanille, de café froid, d ’épices, de malt. Bouche à l’attaque plus crémeuse que le reserva, une belle tension, de l’amertume et une finale sur le chocolat amère. Une bière plus stricte que la reserva mais aussi longue et complexe.

BlackHaddock (5759) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2015
33cl bottle (2010 Vintage) in The Café Red Rose, Brugge on 1st Dec 2015. Dark brown pour, the head weak and wispy. The aroma is full on and intense with some cherries in a caramel puddle within an old whisky barrel doused in dark chocolate. The taste carries on way, cherry, caramel, whisky and dark chocolate, now add some Port into the flavouring: just divine from start to finish.
