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.

mgajdaczewa (906) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 25, 2015
Piana jak na coca coli, na tym koniec minusów. W aromacie potężna beczka, drewno, rodzynki w wanilii, karmel, czerwone owoce, chyba lekka dzikość (infekcja?), piwo nie jest kwaśne, ale czuć obecność brettów. Gładkie, pełne, rodzynki i wanilia, belgijski charakter czuć w tym dziwnym brettowym posmaku, nie ma przyprawowości. Genialny aftertaste, dębina wręcz zalega na podniebieniu! Świetne piwo!

Sweet irony taste. Wow. Elegant. Thick. Oily. Spiky. Sweet dried fruits. A hint of roasted something. Very fine, indeed. Sophisticated.

Birra fenomenale, molto simile alla sua sorella più giovane, la Pennepot. Personalmente trovo quest’ultima un po’ più complessa, ma in generale sono simili. Direi che nella Reserva si percepisce un po’ di meno il Porto e un po’ di più il tostato e soprattutto la liquirizia...tanta liquirizia che è un piacere. Consigliatissima!

Shared a bottle with a friend at the last BBQ, thanks Marc. Pours a dark mahogany with fiery highlights topped by a fizzy mocha head showing pretty good lacong. The nose is sugar cane, toffee, caramel, allspice, raisins and oak. The taste is in the same lane with a liquourish mouthfeel and decent carbs. Pair it with your favorite dark chocolate, it’s to die for. Cheers!

Bottle, Reserva 2010. Very dark brown, red reflexes, beige head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, dark and dried fruits, oak. In taste malty caramel, toasted malts, dried fruits, wooden notes.The beer is full bodied, creamy and oily in texture, alcohol very well hidden yet giving warming effect. Great beer.
