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.

An outstanding beer. Deep aroma of caramel, brandy and spices that seems to last forever.

Bottle, 2005 vintage, shared by levifunk...thanks Levi! - Pours murky dark brown with a nice small tan head. Smell is smooth oak, warming booze, molasses, honey, light Christmas spice, candi sugar, and a bit of menthol. Taste is fantastic--one of the best I’ve had. Dark ripe cherries, bready malt, caramel, oak, and a perfect warming finish that lingers on the throat for awhile. Smooth as velvet and well-carbonated. One of the best beers I’ve had to date.

Bottle. 2005 vintage. Pours dark toffee brown. Nose of toffee, brown and candi sugars, plum, alcohol and yeast. Taste of toffee, plum, almonds, brown sugar, chocolate, candi sugar, alcohol and chewy caramel candy. Tasty and complex.

piscator34 (2331) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Bottled sample via Savvy1982, shared with oakbluff. Dark brown in colour with medium carbonation. Loads of sweet malt aroma, along with sweet licorice, stewed fruit. Flavours are of saltwater taffee, orchard fruit, black licorice, mellow oak, and sticky malt. Medium sweet and fairly heavy on the mouth, with the salty qualities enhancing this even further. Seems to lack some of the spice qualities that I really enjoy in the regular pannepot, but this version is still pretty good.

11.2oz bottle, 2005 vintage, courtesy of zathrus13. thanks, jeff! pours a hazy, chestnut brown with a thick, creamy, dark khaki head with great lacing. aroma is great with big, sweet notes of toffee, molasses, brown sugar, and rich fruity notes of red apple, plum, fig, and raisin backed by spice notes of nutmeg and cinnamon with hints of smoke and dark chocolate. flavor is wonderful as well, very fruit forward, with notes of brandy-dipped figs, golden raisins, dates, and prunes up front backed by sweet toffee, bready yeast, and hints of scotch with subtle notes of apple skins, oak, and charred cedar. palate is medium bodied, nicely carbonated, and lively on the tongue with spices and brisk carbonation. overall, a great belgian strong.

Purchased an Delirium Cafe in Brussels, and it was their last bottle! 2006 vintage. Dark brown pour, thick tan head. Lots of dark fruit, dried stone fruit, oak, raisin, caramel, and apple. A really nice beer, but I still like standard Pannepot better.

Bottle 2005. Dark brown colour with a medium-sized tan head. Malty aroma with notes of liquorice, alcohol and dried fruits. Sweet malty flavour with caramel, dried fruits, oak, alcohol, liquorice and a hint of coffee. Aftertaste is quite sweet.

Pours very dark. Wonderfully unfiltered. Aroma of spice, raisins, oak, and green apple. Palate is lighter than appearance would indicate. Carbonation and alcohol give it a medium body. Light to medium sour flavour of green apples. A hint of sweet. I had higher expectation, however it is certainly worth drinking. For those who really enjoy the green apple sour side of a beer, this is an excellent choice. Much less sour than an Achel 8 Bruin.

Awesome beer, paid a good bit for the bottle but worth it. I liked it alot. Everyone should give any one of this brewers beers a try. This one wasnt so noticeably aged being 5 years old, maybe if I would have tried a new and old version but overall great offering. Try one

Bottle shared by SpencerDB at BASC release - thanks, Spence! As good as the regular Pannepot is, this one is something of a disappointment. At five years, it’s likely on the downside. Something about the combination of the age and the heavy oak presence serves to muddle all the distinctive and complex qualities of regular Pannepot. I wish I’d had the opportunity to taste this earlier, as I can imagine the Calvados in particular accentuating some of the intense flavors. But this one had a faded taste to it, even an off-putting tartness in places as well. Still a fine beer, but not up to expectations.
