The Pannepot Reserva was an idea from my brew collegue Carlo who wanted to age Pannepot in genuine French oak barrels (barrique 225 liters). We have brewed 90HL at the end of 2005 which has been aging on oak ever since (14 months). 30 Hl was bottled Tuesday 8th May 2007. 60Hl has been transferred now to second hand calvados oak vessels and will be bottled again early autumn 2007, we will name that batch Pannepot Grand Reserva. As quality and results rule at Struise, the Reserva was already brewed again and aging on oak.

Bottle: 2010. Thanks, Ryan. Deep, deep brown, outlined with a ruby edge. Burnt khaki foam softly rests on top. Aroma of steely, toasted caramel malt, lots of residual sweetness & burnt sugars, a touch of must that almost hints at oxidation. Some dark fruit. First sip is full of sweet brown sugar & toasted caramel candies. Toffee, deep layers of macerated prunes & raisins. Hints of anise, molasses, & burnt sugar. Warmth brings out a mild phenolic character. A touch of floral & fruity esters in the finish along with a heavy burnt toast flavor that lingers. A decent beer, but I just don’t "get" this one, I guess. Liked it, didn’t love it.

TET (1602) - FINLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle 2010, exp. 04/05/2019. A very dark brown beer with a weak and beige head. The nose is complex and very enjoyable. Lots of dark fruits, prune and dates, some raisins, also fresh strawberries, herbal hops, also wood and dry barrel with vanilla, hint of alcohol. Taste has lots of dark fruits, prune, raisins, strawberries, strong herbs, drying wood and barrel with hint of vanilla in the end. Similar taste and aroma. Medium bodied, mild carbonation, fresh even that strong. Great beer. Complex, creamy, smooth and incredibly balanced.

fkoolen (259) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2014
2009 bottle. Deep dark reddish brown colour, beige foamy head. Nose is big on acidic wine tones along with creamy malts, brown sugar and red fruits. Taste is also big on wine notes lingering on in the (dry) aftertaste, with creamy malts, vanilla, dried figs and dades and red fruits, gingerbread, clove and other spices, chocolate, brown sugar/caramel and coffee: complex, too say the least. High alcohol grade is indeed well disguised. Medium bodied (regular Pannepot is better bodied i.m.o.), low carbonation, soft and oily mouthfeel.

11.2 oz bottle is 2010 vintage. Gusher for about 5 minutes. Pours a chestnut brown with a thin beige collar. The aroma offers dark malts, brown sugar, raisins. Smells nice. Great flavor and remarkably easy to drink. Alcohol hidden very well. A tad sweet, with lingering notes of plums, figs. Another great beer from De Struise.

NordicV (1123) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
Fat märkt 2012. Mörkbrun dimmig öl med ett lättare ljusbrunt skum. Doft av torkad frukt, fikon och trä. Trä och taniner kommer fram ännu mer i smaken. Kryddig och bra fruktig och mörkt socker sötma. Komplext men drickbart öl.

Moravius (439) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2014
Flasche (33 cl), Jahrgang 2010, gekauft im Struise-Shop in Brügge. - Tiefstes Schwarzbraun. - Der Geruch ist etwas eindimensional: viel mehr als Rosinensüße und eine verlockende fruchtige Alkoholnote rieche ich nicht. - Der Antrunk dann eine Wucht: schwerstes dunkles Malz, Rosinen, Mokka, Bitterschokolade, Lakritz, perfekt austariert durch zart säuerliche Fruchtigkeit. Sahniges Mundgefühl, fast ölig. Sehr dicht und reich an Aromen, wie konzentriertes Bier, aber von vollendeter Harmonie, weich und rund. Das Etikett spricht von „Ale brewed with spices“, aber keins der Gewürze drängt sich so in den Vordergrund, daß man es benennen könnte oder daß es störend wäre. Noch im Abgang bittersüß, dann leicht trocken; holzig-herber Nachtrunk. Der hohe Ethanolgehalt macht sich, obwohl deutlich präsent, nicht störend bemerkbar. - Phantastisch, ein Ausnahmebier.
