4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sterk Avondverkoop Amsterdam.
Pours dark with a small head. Aroma-wise I smell a dark maltiness, mild but pleasant. The taste is dark, complex, every sip is different. There is really a lot going on here. Considering its 10% strength it doesn’t taste overly strong. I don’t notice much of the oaking. Overall this is good beer. Much better than e.g. a Rochefort 8 or 10.

I had it first in Kulminator in Antwerp and I was like "God created beer and called it Pannepot Reserva" The Aroma is not very strong but the taste is amazing. Pannepot Reserva rocks comparing to regular Pannepot and Pannepot Grand Reserva Vintage.

Tried the Pannepeut, Pannepot, Reserva and Grand Reserva on a wonderful evening in Bruges. Like the Goldilocks fairytale, the Reserva sits in the middle as a perfectly balanced beast. Delicious, and better than WestieXII imho.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great as all pannepots. Had the 2010 reserva. Dark brown with a small beige head and soft carbonation. Flavor is wonderfully complex and well balanced. It is strong and sweet but not boozy nor overly sweet. Flavor is vinous with calvados, dried fruit, roasted malts, coffe beans and marzipan. Every time I have a pannepot I am surprised. Somehow you remember it is great but you never remember the exact flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a chalice.
A: Pours a deep amber to brown color with many particles floating around. Head is medium and very beige. Retention is slow, however it never disappears completely. A small bubbled layer remains with many lacings left
S: Very fruity and sweet. Strong candy on the nose. Notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Wood. Roasted malts and yeasts. Earthy hops
T: Taste is intense. Very tasty beer. Sweet upfront. Candy, roasted malts, liquor, dark fruits. Notes of chocolate and coffee
M: Extremely creamy beer. Molasses. Low carbonation
O: Very close to the regular Pannepot. A bit milder on alcohol and taste but, of course, a brilliant beer
