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.

Marduk (3849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2015
Side by side tasting of 2005 & 2010 @martjoobolut’s, thanks. [Numbers according to 2010].
2005- Clear dark brown color. Small size, bubbly beige head, stays. Fruity, sweet, woody, raisins in aroma. Raisins, sourish, oxidized, plums/prunes in taste. Tastes old. Raisiny sourness in aftertaste. Plums stones too. In a weird way- refreshing? (7/4/7/4/14=3,6)
2010- Murky dark brown color. Tiny to almost no head. Dark fruits, plums, anise, medical, raisins, oak, woody, sweet notes in aroma. Sweet, raisins, oak, woody, candy caramel in taste. Woody and sweet caramel in aftertaste. Alcohol is very well hidden in both brew. But this one is more full of flavor and simple complexity. Wonderful!

330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut - vertical tasting 2010 vintage (6+:4:7:4:14=3.5+)
First aroma is calvados. Dry woody oaky aroma, some acetone, spicy, nice dark roast. Full palate,but also pleasantly light. Nice roasty taste, fairly mellowed with age. Finish keeps the roast, some clovelike spice, dry old bitter hops, and banana hints. Covers alcohol very well. Improves with each sip. To be honest, started a little disappointing, but I ended up really liking it.
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam) (7:4:8:4:15=3.8)
Pleasantly oxidised aroma, malty, less roasty, nice fruity esters hinting at dark fruits. Lovely sharp palate, cherry sharpness. Love the balance of the aged Raisins in the finish, prunes too. Love the sharpness, the vapours up the back of the nose. Massively prefer this to the "young" one.

Achel (141) - GREECE - JUN 28, 2015
Incredible beer. Aroma deep and complex. Wood, dark malts, candi sugar, fruits like figgs and dry raisins. It has a very dark brown appearance, the palate is quite exceptional. Taste is so smooth and so complex without being overdone.

RW80 (1237) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
330 ml (vintage 2010) Appearance: Pours a dark brown color without a real head. Aroma: Prunes, molasis , wood, candy sugar, nuts, alcohol Taste: Starts moderate, but lingers to really sweet, but the earthy hops save it from becomming cloying.. Sweet malts, toffee, treacle, molasses, figs, prunes , spices,cloves, cherries, oak,Alcohol is not really there i the taste. Earthy hops finish it off and avoid cloying sweetness.. Quite complex. And after 1 bottle you clearly haven’t noticed everything. So a very nice complexity. Full body, moderate carbonation, light sticky texture.

10%ABV. Strong Porter. I opened a bottle of properly chilled 2010. Poured out of the bottle with no head. 40°SRM. Black brown color like the local coffee in Singapore, carmelized till it pours out black as sin. Sweet nose full of prunes and honey plums, with a little more brightness so that you don’t get a lot of preserved fruit. This is special since strong porters tend to have that tang of preservation in the nose. Light residual wood smoke in small wisps with honey and caramel. Very pleasing. Very inviting. Lightly carbonated mouthfeel with a moderately alcoholic palate. Brief bitter hops and then a very smooth slide into vanilla beans, honey dates, leaf tobacco, toffee, dark chocolate and some burnt sugar syrup. All ponderous flavors but floating on an ether so light and perfectly balanced with just enough hops to bring each flavor to the fore without being cloying. Goes on Favorites List big time!
