"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.

Dark brown color with mocca-coloured head. Aroma of dark ripe fruit and caramel. Taste is sublime. Well balanced, diverse and nowhere out of proportions. Very well.

MrOrla (1935) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2016
Tap. Pours brown blackish with a tan head. Aroma of raisins, dark fruits, lots of caramel, roasted notes, strong in every aspect. Taste is very sweet, lots of dark fruits followed by plum and deep caramel. Sticky and a sipper.

Vintage 2011. Unclear dark brown. Thin tan head. Layers upon layers of complexity make each sip a pleasure. A very harmonious creation. Quite unique as well. No booze. Great sipper.

Aroma is caramel, alcohol, lots of sugar and wood. Color is pure dark brown, small tanned head. Taste is superb, pretty sweet, heavy hops... excellent. Full body, pretty smooth and thin texture, low carbonation. Overall... one of the best Belgian Strong Ales.

Zlotta (1306) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’The Beer Tree’, 2010 vintage, bottled in November 2014. Clear, very dark ruby with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, tan to light brown head. Sweetish, fruity, a little spicy and slightly boozy aroma of raisins, plums, caramel, cinnamon, marzipan, clove, overripe banana, apples (calvados) and oak. Sweet-malty, slightly sourish-fruity and a little spicy taste of raisins, plums, caramel, overripe banana, chocolate, marzipan, cinnamon, clove, apples (calvados) and some oak, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, sourish, moderately yeasty-spicy and minimally warming finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nicely balanced, very interesting barrel notes, very complex and drinks way too easy. Absolutely delicious!

M82 (468) - Kansas, USA - APR 29, 2016

A black body with mahogany frame sits beneath a fading, frothy, khaki head

Medium plus intensity with very smooth transitions and a touch of Belgian and spirit spice, creamy layers of chocolate covered blueberries & blackberries, dates, caramel & brown sugar with a balanced, silky, intwined cognac influence on a slick yet soft, frothy, creamy medium body... residuals echo the aromas and flavors with notions of cherry cordial

Capped 11.2 FL OZ 2010 Vintage served at 55° into Orrefors Difference Porter Snifter

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks Yoav. 2010 vintage. Deep amber with big bubbly brownish head. Sweetish aroma with notes of prune, raisin, date honey and coconut.

How wonderful! Enjoy a beer like this is priceless. Maybe it needed a little gas but other delights, a game of sensations, a beer with a fantastic job.
