3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl. 2005 vintage. Dark brown with small pale brown head. Aroma in the beginning liquerice and calvados ? (alcoholic anyway). I´´m uncertain if there is notes of oak, there are some notes that I remember from Amagers oak aged impy stout, but then the oak gives very differens aromas from what can be found in an oakaged redwine.
After a while only licorice stands back.
Taste licorice, quite seet, dates, figs and some strange acidity, that draws down. After all I think it´s a little better than Pannepot due to a less prominent licorice taste, even though it´s not reflected in my ratings. Gets cloying in the end.

I love all the Struise beers, but this one is a bit too sweet. I much more prefer the straight reserva, as this beer is just too much.

Hazy, dark brown with a medium, beige head.
Sweet and malty aroma with plums, raisins, prunes, port and some light toffee-notes.
Pretty fizzy palate.
Some light wood in the flavour along with some licorice ans a lot of sweet, dried fruits.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
hazy dark brown beer with some red edges and a very stable light brown foam on top of it. Aroma very complex yet not overpowering. Great mix of malts, chacolat, coffee, brioche, port wine, raisins, vanilla, wood apples and Calvados. Thate is smooth and much lighter than the regular Pannepot. the wood really did make this massive beer more mellow, even more complex and dryer. In the aftertaste there is a more prominent presance of hops and taninns. This is a perfect after dinner beer that you can enjoye for a long time.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle. Pours a murky brownish black with a fairly large, beige head lasting a few minutes. The aroma is very vinous with notes of oak, apples, berries, port and caramel. The taste is sweet with a sour finish. Smooth and rich mouthfeel. Light, prickling carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brown colour with pretty big, longlasting, beige head(tulip glass). Aroma is predominantly from the Calvados, after are waves of oak, berries and fruits. No alcohol detected here - the alcohol is overall nowhere to find. Tad sourish smell, probably from the effect of the apples. The backbone in mouthfeel is surprisingly light(due to the oak), which is good here, I found the other 3 Pannepot very sweet. Apples dominate the flavour, along with a woody tone, that is pleasantly acidic. This is a very good beer, although none from the Pannepot-line is on my top 100-list.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Murky brown with a medium beige head. Quite complex aroma with vinous notes, oak, dark fruits and berries. Medium bodied and quite smooth, but with a light prickling carbonation. Quite dry, but there is also a quite strong acidic bite in the finish wihich I do not find entirely pleasant. The least good Pannepot i.m.o.
