"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.

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2009
The hazy burgundy brown liquid keeps it elegant beige cover forever. Wood and fruit cake are evoked in this spicy-anise, oregano, pepper- aroma. The wood quickly takes a strong apple character, revealing the calvados barrel that went into the process. Quite acidic, having a rather juicy middle despite the unmistakenly Belgian soft foamy, ample texture. As its rich malts evoke chocolate, prunes, dates and raisins, its yeast levels it up with fittin desserty spiciness. A sweet offering indeed, if not quite at the same levels than the regular Pannepot, especially with that acidity backing up. Deeply complex, yet I find myself liking it less than the less alcoholic, tighter regular Pannepot whose maltiness seems less cohesive. If the barrels add an extra layer, they also remove from the brightness of the layers underneath. Still, that’s one excellent and unique offering.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 7, 2009
Bottle, 33cl. Pours very alluring dense and dark mahogany, with generous off-white head. Extremely complex aroma of sweet dark fruits, chocolate, liquorice, spices and caramel. Very well blended on the palate, with perfectly smooth mouthfeel, the smoothest of all the Pannepots. A truly great ale.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2010 WOW. What can I say? Simply mesmerising. A hedonistic smell of camarel; dark chocolate, musty perfume and brown sugar If they could bottle that I’d wear it! Awesome texture. Very dark and robust coffee notes with red elements and a sandy colour at the top. Purely intoxicating. A wonderful brew. I recommend pairing wtih a Rochefort 10. WOW.

Courtesy of ygtbsm94. Thanks for sharing, Brad! Dark brown, creamy light tan head. Rich oaked plum and spiced port aromas ride a brown sugar wave throughout. Dark spiced fruitiness and wood gain a touch of metallic’s upon reaching room temperature. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dark fruit finish. Nice, but seems like it spent more time in the wood than truly necessary…

ciriliox (7) - SPAIN - NOV 23, 2009 does not count
Aroma: Red fruits, chocolate, Oporto (sweet wine). Very subtile. Appearance: Almost black, very opaque. A fine browny foam lasts for long. Taste: Subtile as its aroma, but mouth-watering. Cramberries, chocolate, figs and wood are the flavours i found. Palate: The best of the beer. A "velvet-ish" sensation caresses your mouth, with its sweet evolving layer. My favourite beer ever (so far).

trapez (1554) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle. Sweet aroma of berries, wood, malt and a hint of portwine. Deep red colour with beige head. Rather sweet flavour with ripe fruits, chocolate, wine and alcohol. Aftertaste like portwine.

Opaque dark brown beer. Sweet with a definite coca cola note. Dry finish. Not much else going on. It’s quite drinkable but was expecting much more. Original rating 3.0

Borefts Beer Festival 3. 2008 Vintage. Hazy dark brown beer. Residual pale tan head. Sweet malt. Minerals. Complex generic dark fruits. A little spice towards the finish. Traces of bubblegum, toffee and spicy calvados. Nice!

proesti (58) - Lille Nord, FRANCE - NOV 14, 2009
Struise Schooltje Vleteren, also a unique beer. Dark brown in colour, with fine beige mousse. Aroma is more delicate than the original Pannepot and the reserva that i like so much. Its has a touch of apple and a interesting sour edge. aftertaste is pure finesse. Encore Merci Carlos !

pompelmoes (89) - BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2009
Rich dark brown in colour with creamy head. Nose is very maly and fruity at the same time. The beer is smooth on the pallet and has a wide panorama of taste-elements. It has hints of coffee Port-wine, confit-de-pommes, dried fruits and Calvados-brandy. The taste is rich and very refined. This barrel aged version is also less stout like then the regular one. Finish is long, complex, slight sour, malty and bread like. A tuely fine barrel aged beer with a remacable wine like finesse in the end.

saxo (15413) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2009
Bottle. Nice head with excellent duration. Color is dark brown. Aroma and taste are fruits, hops, wood, vinegar, alcohol and sugar. A little acetic.
