"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.

pintbypint (3070) - Edmonton, Alberta, - SEP 2, 2011
330ml brown bottle. Black colour, off white head is stained by yeast flecks. Decent lacing. Nose is slightly winey, notes of alcohol, some cherries, slight woody notes. Flavour has cherry and wood notes up front, hint of chocolate, soft fruity notes. Dry and woody finish. Aftertaste is very oaky, woody, lingering dark cherry fruit notes. Full body, tight precise carbonation on the tounge. Overall, strong, woody and winey and very pleasing. Great extension to the Pannepot brand.

(Thanks, Gene! "Travlr") A- Dark fruits, port wine, subtle booze, oak, chocolate truffles. A- Dark brown black color, dark liquid, off white head. T- Dark fruits, cherries, chocolate syrup, chocolate truffles, caramel, molasses, raisins. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- Had a Vintage 2005, so 10 years old. And it was outstanding. The complexity of what this bottle showed was nothing short of delicious. Very happy to have tried it but now very sad it’s gone.

erickok (4459) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2015
Dark brown body and small head. Aromatic beer, complex, very rich but and indeed not restraint yet balanced perfectly. It does lose some of the character of the normal version, with foresty freshness, but it is replaced with better aging. This development time give a great aroma mostly, but also helps smoothen out the edges. I would have liked it a bit sweeter, but that’s personal. (33cl bottle from QV.ID)

2010 grand reserva. Dark brown, modest head, oily. A: very intense, deep aroma. Cherry bonbons, caramel malts, bock, hint of whisky, dark chocolate. T: deep, robust taste. Cherry bock start, oily mouthfeel. Development reminds of red porto, ends with chocolate, red fruits. Aftertaste is surprisingly neutral. Such a nice balance. Top.

Pannepot...fra le migliori birre belga del mondo! In questa versione è straordinariamente complessa..scura,con riflessi rubino e schiuma beige che forma uno strato millimetrico,ma sempre presente..aroma carico di emozioni..frutta matura,prugna,datteri,saltata a dovere..sentore legnoso che non pizzica troppo e la rende molto gradevole..gusto caldo,avvolgente,leggermente speziata..forse cannella e noce moscata.ma nel complesso riflette l’aroma..malto,frutta matura,sentori lievito di che le danno una nota complessa da spavento! Amazing!

0.33l bottle. Very dark brown body, light-brown head. Both the aroma and the taste are quite red wine-like with notes of cocoa, berries, caramel and some booze. For me it’s way smoother than the other Pannepots but for some reason it’s not that intense.
