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 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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2010
Dark brown-red colored with hazy appearance. Rich aroma with vinous tone dominating, apple, raisins and yeast also comes up with some sweetness and thin warming alcohol. Excellent aroma. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is even more vinous with sweet raisins here too, thin licorice comes up as well. Aftertaste is sweet still with some yeast and some cardboard.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2010
2005 Bottle, much thanks to Savvy1982. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toffee, sweet tobacco, cherry, plum, fig, raisin, oak, some soy, yeast. This stuff is as good as I hoped. Taste is so smooth, sweet, lots of dark fruit, grapeskin, some acidity on the finish. Medium carbonation, silky texture, medium body.

2006 bottle split with Urbain. Pours a hefty dark brown color, apples in the nose. Dry, medium body, sweet up front, dry on the back of the tongue with a slight apple flavor through the entire experience. Very nice.

A: Pours a deep mahogany with a nice tan head and a tight ring of lace as it goes down. S: Plenty of dark fruits, molasses, brown sugar, and some wintry spices. T: Caramel malt base and plenty of brown sugar and molasses. Dates and figs are prominent, with a few notes of cherry. Quite complex. M: Medium body and nicely creamy. D: Very drinkable delicious. Love pretty much everything that Struise does. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-15-2010

Jag tycker denna är lite annorlunda än t.ex 2006-batchen. Den har en tydlig syrlighet som jag inte har smakat i de andra och kroppen är också lite tunnare. Visst känner jag igen de härliga bärtonerna som jag blev så förtjust i och 2005-årgången är en absolut stabil öl, men lite annorlunda.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - Vintage 2005, at Man in the Moon, Stockholm) The beer poured deep dark brown and almost clear. Head was medium sized and white. Aroma was malty and spicy. I found malts, raisin, aniseed and dried plum. Palate was full bodied and dry with quite high carbonation. The taste was quite complex and also pleasant. I found apples, malts, aniseed, raisin, wood, saltiness, liquorice, dried plum, vineousness and bitterness. Afteraste was mildly spicy, malty and bitter. The combination of strong flavours worked well and I enjoyed drinking the beer from the fist sip to the last drop.
