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.

Bottle, 33 cl. Very dark brown color, almost black, wiht great beige to light brown creamy head. Aroma dark malts, alcoholic, bit woody. Full body. Taste is WOW ! This is much better than the Westvleteren 12 ! Dark malts, bit sweet, caramel, little spice, some chocolate ?. Good alcohol warm feeling. Dry alcoholic, bit sweet finish. For Leen and myself the greatest beer on earth !

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2009 Tasted 2008-02-16. Bottled 2007. Pours semi clear, dark red/brown with a beige head. Aroma: Sweet, malty with overripe, dark fruits. You can clearly smell the wood! Ditto flavours - slightly sour; very well balanced. Very complex mouthfeel. Re-rate 2009-12-14. Bottled 2007. Age has given no off flavours, but has rounded the wood off and enhanced the acidity. Better now. (Aged witout wax.) Changed the overall from 19 to 20 after this one.

On drought at the Waregen beerfest. Deep brown chesnut color and fluffy beige foam on top. Aroma is very complex. roasty notes, bread, figgs, apple, Calvados, wood, peppercake and lots of complex aromas. Taste is slight less fuller than the regular Pannepot but has more fine and complex notes. Athertaste is longlasting and super yummy.

Wow, amazing, so tasty and doesn’t taste like a dark beer. Very fruity in some respects, but not sweet. Can totally tell it’s been aged in an oak barrel.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 Perfection in a glass...This is beer on the next level. To think I have only just been introduced... It smells sweet. Delicious chocolate and caramel flavours ooze out of this beer. It is beautiful to behold. As black as the night. Imagine crude oil untainted in your glass and you get close, add just a slight creamy golden white film on the top and you’re there. Heavy, rich and syrupy, much like the Struise Pannepot but thicker and heavier. Like them smell, strong chocolate and caramel flavours now with a hint of liquorice on the after taste. An absolute delight to drink, from first pop to last sip. Addict. I only wish I was a writer for the brewer as I am sure they would pay me dividends for this!

VINTAGE 2008, valable jusqu’en 2016 d’après le l’étiquette. Qualité ! On touche au maximum, et bien plus on y est, parce que tout est dans cette bière : la force, la douceur, le style, l’amertume, l’équilibre, le degré d’alcool, en un mot : la classe... Ces Struise doivent être le "duivel" en personne (duivel en néerlandais est le devil anglais, le diable, d’où le nom de la célèbre Duvel aussi, qui est une prononciation en patois anversois du duivel néerlandais) . En première bouche, on trouve de la crème de noix, de la mûre, du blé noir, avec une pointe de café noir, de cassis et de chocolat noir. La seconde bouche est concentrée sur le café, mais avec un équilibre global très agréable, et où on perçoit bien le travail de mûrissement exceptionnel (14 mois en french oak et 8 mois de finish sur du calvados wood ) Excusez du peu .... Il est vrai que la production est limitée à 30 hectolitres tous les 2 ans. Pas de quoi satisfaire tous les fans !!! La finale est superbe, comme un gâteau bavarois au café et au chocolat noir, avec toujours un très bel équilibre, où l’alcool ne domine pas du tout, mais plutôt l’ensemble des arômes. On ne peut coter ce type de bière, qui vous donne tout et encore plus, que sur la cote maximale. C’est le reflet d’un art du brassage, et aussi d’audaces gustatives. Very very good work, guys !! You surely are the devil himself....

Vintage 2008. Arcy klasyk, swietne i niesamowite piwo. Perfekcyjnie trafia w moj gust, niczego nie moglem sie przyczepic po tym leciwym piwie. Czarne oleiste, moze lekko czerwony refleks gdzieniegdzie sie zauwaza. Zapach intrygujacy, porto, scherry, sliwki trufle i gozka czekolada. W smaku te same wrazenia ale dochodza powidla sliwkowe i zmwlaszcza pieczone jablka, troche rumu i wspaniala rozgrzewajaca koncowka. Wytrawna i dluga. Piana gesta zoltawa ,srednio obfita ale jak na tak mocne piwo utrzymuje sie dosc dlugo, oczywiscie znaczac swoja obecnosc na pucharku. Godne poleceniu wyrachowanemu i doswiadczonemu piwoszowi. Jak najbardziej zalecane piwo do stazenia. Jeszcze raz podkresle, to artyzm i mistrzostwo wazenia i kondycjonowania tego piwa.
