"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.

Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown body with a wispy, persistent, off-white head. Smell: Aroma of dark malts and toasted oak wrapped up in a luscious, sweet-smelling raisin/plum syrup. Yes, I read Calvados, but for me it’s very port-like. Taste: Rich sweet maltiness! Flavors of simple syrup, dark caramel, light brown sugar, and a drop or three of molasses. Did I mention it’s sweet? A tiny kick of tartness accompanies the potent, port-like fruitiness and plays nicely alongside the sweetness. Underlying tastes of vanilla and oak. Sweet, fruity finish with a lingering taste of cane sugar. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Mild carbonation. Drinkability: Quite nice! A superb creation. Can I take away PBR’s blue ribbon and give it to this beer?

33 cl bottle, vintage 2005. Almost black color, brown head. Aroma is lovely, with dark and dried fruits. Flavor has the same, with clear notes of oak. Very complex, with a small sourness in the finish. My rating #800.

Shared by MikeTD. Thanks Mike! Dark brown body with a small head. The aroma is heavy caramel and prune. Nice mouthfeel--syrupy and thick. The flavor is just like the aroma with hints of oak and definite alcohol.

Bottle thanks to OldStyleCubFan: Pours a hazy dark mahogany with a clingy-lacing froth of beige head. Aroma of sweet fruity notes, some doughy caramel malts and Belgian yeast along with oaky apples. Starts effervescent with lively carbonation settling into a sweet caramely maltiness nicely balanced with complex woody character and light fruits. Finishes drier, slightly tart with nice calvados flavor. An enjoyable and well-made brew.

Pours a deep brown root beer like color with above average head, and above average lacing and carbonation. Bittersweet oaky malt smell. Tastes a little lighter than the aroma or ABV would indicate. Has a nice malt backbone. Finishes well and tastes like it is bottle conditioned. A very good beer!

From my backlog. HUGE thanks to Jason for letting me try this! Also thanks to sk8viking for sending this to him! Wow, complexity! Gorgeous whipped cream-like head. Nice lacing on the side of the glass. Wonderful balance noted here in both the aroma and flavour. Bits of black pepper, nutmeg, coriander, caramel, candied fruit......it just goes on. Oak and vanilla make a subtle appearance with the calvados jumping in a little later on. Some yeasty notes along with some interesting esters. Slight funk on the back-end of the palate. Slight warming sensation on the way down gave a nice pleasent nature to this. Deep layers of complexity keep going on well after the last sip. Wonderful experience!
