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 Řlbutikken 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 Řlbutikken 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.

darrennelson12 (406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
In bottle (2009 vintage); aroma is oaky and smokey, with a subtle sweetness. Taste is sweet and syrupy, quite bull bodied with a fruity finish .. overall a very nice beer indeed

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Calvados barrel-aged Pannepot and distributed more widely than its predecessor Pannepot Reserva. Pale beige, sticky, creamy head, relatively stable, colour a hazy dark reddish brown. Gracious, powerful and seductive bouquet of chocolate, caramel, walnut, dates, old ’jenever’, oak, almond, cloves, banana, cinnamon, coriander, old port wine, cider... Soft, rounded palate, dark fruits, very full, profoung maltiness, nutty, caramelly and chocolatey malts, refined sweetness but nowhere cloying, retronasally very woody, tannins, vanilla and warming calvados in a subtle way, further supported by the same drying coriander and aromatic hops as in the regular version. Fantastic brew, they even succeeded in improving an already great ale - this version easily belongs to the best beers in its style.

Sigmund (5118) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2014
330 ml bottle, vintage 2009, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 10%. Very dark brown colour, moderate beige head. Strong aroma of malts, brown sugar, caramel, spices and oak, only a hint of calvados. The flavour seems slightly less sweet than the Reserva, more refined and rounded, still malty with distinct notes of spices and oak, hints of chocolate, vanilla and calvados. A very fine beer.

DutchMark (152) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
Vintage 2009. Very very nice. Huge flavor with subtle notes. Nice dark brown with fizzy soft carbonation. Flavor is rich port like sweet marzipan dried fruits coffee and calvados. The flavor sticks to your mouth and stays there for a long time . It is strong warming but not boozy. Great as a dessert.

andriesradu (500) - ROMANIA - AUG 25, 2014
VINTAGE 2005. Bad bottle. Exploded as I opened it. Taste and aroma werent as expected. Will need to try it again for a better review. Pours dark brown with no head. Cask wood, old, some light fruity aroma. Sweet but dominated by not so good flavors.
