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.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 Vintage 2006: Coffee and dark chocolate aroma combined with wood. Taste is very rich with similar tastes as in the aroma. You can really taste that this has aged for quite some time due to the flavour of the wooden barrel.Vintage 2005: ripe prunes with chocolate flavours, wood. Great beer.Vintage 2010: candy sugar, caramel, toffee, milk chocolat

33cl bottle shared with friends. Nice enough beer but not my style. I prefer the normal Pannenpot and the Tjeejus (SP?)

2010-10-30 Bottle from 2005. Pours dark ruby brown with a light beige moderately lasting head. Raisins caramel, licorice and bread in aroma. Dark fruits and lightly sweet in flavor with a slightly tart bitter finish. Also some warming alcohol in the very end. Very nice, but not as nice as I had expected.

(330ml bottle 2005 vintage thanks to blutt59) clear ruby brown with soapy tan bubbles. Nose of raisin, brown and candi sugars, sweet plum. Taste of toasty raisin, brown sugar, mild oxidation, and alcoholic. Really had high hopes on this one, but think I’d prefer it at 2-3 years instead of 5. It just was a bit out of balance.

’05 bottle generously traded to me by Glouglouburp. The color is a murky dark brown that’s topped with a thin tan head. A pencil thin frothy layer remains on top the whole way through. Apple, cherries, funky yeast in the aroma, along with wood, candi sugar, and some light vinegar notes. The flavor is a little too vinegary for me. Definitely more so than regular Pannepot and Reserva and its a bit of a turn off. Lots of rotted wood in here with ripe apples, licorice, sweet dark fruit, funky yeast, and a little metallic taste. The palate is considerably thinner than expected. Probably due to the extra time in oak as well as age of the bottle but this lacks the rich qualities I was expecting. Man, Pannepot and Pannepot Reserva are both world class brews but this one, for whatever reason, fell way short. I want to give this a better review, really do, but just can’t. A must revisit.

330 ml bottle shared by lushawn- thanks again, Shawn! 2005 vintage. Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a small khaki head that leaves just a ring in the glass. Aroma of vanilla, caramel malts, raisins, brown sugar, and brandy. Flavor of oak, apples, caramel malts, dried fruit, dough, and vanilla. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a fruity, watery mouthfeel. Back to back with the Pannepeut, I liked this one better despite the body it loses in the barrels and over the years.

2005 Bottle. Aroma of candied caramel apples, raisins, some light rumcake and doughy brandy. Bloody mineral calcium tablets, winey dry wood. Neat beer. A bit watery. Neat though.
