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.

11.2 oz bottle. Vintage 05. Pours a reddish brown murky with a small beige head. Nose is dense chocolate, raisins and figs and a touch of caramel apple. Yeasty up front with big chocolate and caramel. Some definite alcohol. As it warms raisins, wood, cherries and crusty bread come out. Finishes with a chocolate bread aftertaste and is very dry. This tastes slightly wild but no sourness and not much if any bret character aside from the dryness. Very good.

0,33 l bottle, bought at Struise Brouwers, Ooostvleteren, Belgium.
Poured dark brown near black with a small, creamy delicious tan head. Liqueric aroma with deep roasted grains, coffee and cocoa, a ton of dried fruits, plum and raisins, some wooden cask is lurking in the background. The flavor....Thick body, oily texture, the beer fill up my mouth with a high comlexity. Caramel and coffe, fine belgian yeast, dark chocolate and cocoa with roasted grains. Fantastic fruity character with plum, figs and raisin, the oak character is a plus again. The alcohol warms me up. Fantastic, congratulations, De Struise!

330ml bottle from Cafe Volo. 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.

First, a huge thank you to John B. for bringing this to our little tasting. We weren’t quite expecting items like this...but this will do! Poured out into my Duvel glass a solid earthy brown body sitting under a lengthy light beige head. Perfect temp. Aroma...mmmm...brown sugar, oak, vanilla, plummy, rum raisins...just a smidge of chocolate...toffee....damn. Simply amazing. Flavor has all the perfection of a well aged beer and none of the negatives. Beautiful oak/vanilla, raisins, apples, toffee, dried fruits...just stunning.

Super rich aroma of caramelized nuts. Very subtle barrel influence; just a hint of the vanilla.

Very dark cloudy brown pour with a lively off white froth. The aroma is massive dark fruit, tropical fruit, oak, whiskey, grapes, raisin, biscuit, dough, and spice. the flavor is riddled with dark fruit, brown sugar, biscuity dough, oak, more whiskey, and tons of spice. The palate is supply effervescent with a velvety mouthfeel that finishes sticky and sweet. Amazing, as I’ve come to expect from De Struise.

I really found this one underwhelming, I like Pannepot and I like barrel-aged beers, but this time around, the barrel flavors clash with the flavor of the original and I just don’t find it that enjoyable. A shame, really.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2010 Poured a nice dark brown colour with a small off-white head. The aroma is slightly malty with lots of fruit; raisins, prunes. Also the overall aroma was a little sugary and had some alcohol overtones. The taste was the one thing that kind of threw me off, it is quite sweet and even a little sour, the fruits are also still present. There is a light bitter finish but ultimately this beer is not for me. A little oily on the palate fairly nice in that respect.
