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.

One of the best gets better. Bottle shared by Rich from 2008 series. This one aged very well, still as smooth and slick as butter. Dark dried fruits, yeast, typical Belgian ale but oh so tasty.

"more similarities than differences in the Pannepot, Reserva, and Grand Reserva, and that after having all 3 side by side...and different years of each. This was a 2009...all 3 are among my favorite belgoan beers. I’ll take any of these over a Westy or Bernardus any day. Mellower on the carbonation and yeast, rich and smooth. Dark fruit abounds. Excellent!"

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 2009 33cl bottle. Pours dark brown with two fingers of beautiful creamy beige head. Smells of caramel, molasses, dark (plums, raisins, dates) and dried fruits with some alcohol chocolate cake aroma. Taste adds toasted note with coffee, burnt sugar, light spices and some alcoholic and liquor-like flavors. Excellent.

McNeillR (1249) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Vibrant light Cola brown, ringed eggshell head. Creamy hardware clove and cherry. Initial taste of clean tinny bitterness, furry tart toward the middle. Clean and complex. Drenched sweetness and easy on the barrell finish.

Bottle, Independence Tasting, from the Garvie Cave

In bottle (vintage 2010): pours a dark brown. Aroma of malt and fruit, with some cocoa. Taste is similar with coffee notes added .. very good coffee though I am finding all the Pannepots are tasting the same .. good thing they are good beers
