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.

(Merci à Viper666) Le liquide a une robe brune. Un col mousseux flotte sans prétention. Le nez est très agréable, je dirais même presque fantastique avec des effluves liquoreuses de pommes et de fruits enfûtés, des parfums vineux, touché par un caramel chaud, frôlé par la vanille et exposer à des vapeurs douces de bonbons belges. Les saveurs m’apparaissent un peu moins intéressantes, légèrement décalées par rapport aux arômes, mais tout de même avenantes : les flaveurs révèlent les tannins du chêne, les pommes et les fruits ont des caractéristiques surettes, légèrement fermentées. Le caramel est présent mais peu intense. Des pointes de réglisse se dessinent et flattent les papilles. En bouche, le liquide est plutôt en manque de corps. Son pétillement est faible et sa texture à la limite mince. La finale est douce, assez longue et timidement embrasé par l’alcool.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2011
2005 bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Super murky dark brown pour with a fading tan head. Big complex aroma of fruitcake, prunes, booze and spices Sweet, vinous flavour with malts, dark fruit, wood, spices and yeast evident. A little tartness towards the finish. Fullish body and gentle carbonation. ABV well smothered. Top class.

Bouteille de 33cl. Vintage 2005 brassée chez Deca. Cette bière est brune peu de mousse mais l’apparence n’est pas sa qualité première, Le nez est très agréable, odeur de chocolat, bois léger, très complexe, toffee, caramel et une foule d’autres odeurs. La bouche est quelque suret (normal car la bière est vielle) un peu de cidre, de pomme surette, pomme d’api, touche de réglisse. La bière est tout de même mince en bouche quelque peu liquide, mais peut-on demander plus d’une bière brassée il y a 6 ans. En terminant le bois n’est pas agressant au contraire il apporte une complexité supplémentaire. Bue en compagnie de Patrick, merci Viper.

2005 vintage..shouldve been popped then. cola brown pour with minimal head..murky and sediment laden..very homebrewish aroma..muddled in raisin and grain with slight mineral..lame..sweet flavor with big brown sugar, maple syrup, fig and molasses..milky chocolate and hazlenut round it out. nutty and bizarre considering the lame aroma..

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
Bottle at Bar Volo Toronto. Pours a nice dark colour with almost a ruby like tinge to it. Aroma was sweet and of oak. Taste was so sweet and just amazing on the tongue. A little boozey, oak like. Syrup like, just awesome.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Deep red-brown cola body with yeast sediment; no head. Cerealy nose with caramel, malt extract, grain, and rubber cement. Toasty, cerealy body with sweet barley notes. Modest oak. I loved the original beer, but this version is clearly past its prime.

gunnar (7861) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2011
33 cl bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Saved this bottle almost a year. Pours dark brown, nearly black with a 1 inch creamy brown head. Aroma build up as the beer warms up in my Duvel tulip glass, there is vinous notes, sweet caramel, liquorice, dark fruits, lots of good malty orientated whiffs coming from my glass. Taste is wood, we talk oak here, lots of velvety intriguing malts, slightly bitter bite towards the end. Sticky mouthfeel. Lovely beer to enjoy in small sips.

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2011
from crackedkettle.com; 2005 vintage - hazy dark brown colour with a poor head retention; aroma of apple and marzipan, pretty hoppy; fairly sweet and full-bodied, long aftertaste of fruit and caramel - velvety and dangerously drinkable though not as great as the Reserva

Wow, amazing, so tasty and doesn’t taste like a dark beer. Very fruity in some respects, but not sweet. Can totally tell it’s been aged in an oak barrel.

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