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.

Bottle kindly shared by Cuso, thank you! 2008 vintage, 5 years old at the time of drinking. Aroma chocolate, plums, alcohol sting, lightly sour. Dark brown colour. Taste is chocolatey, spicy, only very light sweetness. Alcohol not present in any big amount, as opposed to the 2006 regular version we drank earlier. Moderate bitterness, moderate sweetness, light alcohol. Very good, but sadly overall weaker than the 2006 regular, which managed to impress with a sofisticated complexity. With beers of this age, it was hard to say, if it lacked the 2 bonus years of aging, or something else.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Drank with Thijs, at a wonderful night (21-12). Not better than regular pannepot in my opinion. Still a great beer though. Small amount of foam. Sweet taste, large hints of wine and small touches of roggebrood. Much depth.

Elwood (3046) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. 2005 vintage. It pours a dark, hazy brown with a thin tan ring. Huge nose full of dark dried fruit, vanilla, and calvados. Luxuriant mouthfeel with notes of leather, dried cherries, dark caramel, vanilla, spices, and calvados. The high abv dries things out on the back end. Long finish. Superb beer.

Silvan7 (668) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle @ Il Porco, Corbetta. 2008 Vintage. schiuma beige finissima, colore tra il marrone ed il ramato con evidenti riflessi rosso rubino. Aroma molto intenso e persistente. Fruttato (frutti rossi /ciliege sotto spirito) , lievito belga, liquoroso come l’Alchermes, speziata, ricorda la liquirizia il cioccolato il legno e in certo modo la zuppa inglese. Molto complessa. Gusto intenso abbastanza persistente. Dolce amabile, poco amaro, solo lievemente acidulo. Dopo il primo sorso liquoroso si sprigiona un fortissimo gusto di liquirizia. l’amaro del luppolo è appena accennato, come da stile. il gusto di valiglia e legno è più intenso allo scladarsi della birra. Corposa, carbonata e molto rotonda. é alcolica ma non fastidiosa. Equilibrata e molto armonica. Capolavoro.
