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 Řlbutikken 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 Řlbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

From a lableless 75 cl bottle. Pours a very dark brown beer with a fine light-brown creamy and longlasting foam on top. Aroma is very trappist like(Rochefort) and has lots of different aspects going on. It smells like Coffee, bread, port, sweet dough, raisins apples (Calvados) and wood. Taste is very similar to the aroma. The beer is mild, not to sweet, slight bitter, like coffee bitters and hops. Mouthfeeling is mild and soft malty with a nice touch of wood, dryed sliced apple, some banana and good boos soaked raisins. Not as sweet and a bit more dry as the regular pannepot, but very complex and the afthertaste is superb. Thanks to the Struise guys for letting me taste this one from a champage size bottle.

It pours a dark chestnut color, almost black in my large Des Fagnes glass, with a medium sized head, persistent. Mild aroma, with sour chocolate, wood, cedar. Good body; there is a caramel and candi sugar flavor, with sweet liquorice; it has a too low bitterness. At the end, there is some warming alcohol feeling. Good, big, but lacking complexity, excitement.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Poured an almost clear deep ruby-brown color with a large long lasting tan head. Semi-sweet malty aroma with notes of dark fruits, brown sugar, wood, cola and a yeasty spice. The flavor was semi-dry with some mild dark fruits and a woody drier finish. The end starts to thin a little. Medium bodied. For 10% it just slides right down with not alcohol taste and just some light warmth.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 11, 2008
First bottle of BrianK’s 25th Birthday tasting. Pours an amber brown body with a thin tan head. Aroma is boozy with some spices present. Flavor is much less spiced then the regular pannepot. Spices, etoh, oak, and an undesirable metallic flavor.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Amber red color with a tan head that quickly dissipates to a ring around the glass. Smell is of green apple, spices, and some wood. Taste consists of caramel, toffee, spices, clove, but this is also very metallic; even moreso than the regular reserva. Light bodied with a rather high carbonation. I’d try this again, but I don’t know that I’d seek it out. It seems like I’d just stick with regular Pannepot over any of the reservas. Thanks to pepsican for the sample.

Pours a murky brown color with a medium tan head. Very pleasant aroma of wood, raisins and liquorice. The flavor is also pretty solid, the wood is present, but not too much, there’s also some raisins and liquorice. The body is medium with a liquorous texture and gentle carbonation. It’s a very successfull barrel aging experiment, but I still prefer the original Pannepot.

Hildigöltur (5104) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2008
Bottled. Hazy reddish brown coloured. Very vinous apple aroma with spicy notes. Sweet and herbal fruit flavour (especially apples and plums). Some pleasant acidity in the finish. Rather fizzy. Medium bodied.

A huge thanks to toncatcher for sharing this one. A brew that we all had been waiting for to try. Deffinetly lived up to the hype. Lots of deep woody flavors with a long lasting bitter flavor. Some sourness. Very good.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2008
330mL bottle. Pours deep mahogany, capped with a moderate sized tan head. Lively aroma, with spices, pear, wood, and alcohol in the foreground, and brown sugar, caramel, fruitcake, and dark wheat present as well. Sweet malt, raisin, apple, and whiskey are the dominant flavors, with notes of wheat, plum, and wood. Finishes with some warming alcohol and apple skin flavor. Really nice beer. It’s been a while since I’ve had the original Pannepot, but I think I may like the base beer more than the barrel-aged varieties. I hope to try the 4 versions head to head someday...
