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.

Beerconnaiseur (155) - BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2014
33cl bottle from 2010, aged in bottle over 2 years probably. Dark brown pour with no head. Aromas.. Malt, cognac, apple peel, caramel and chocolate hints. Taste is pretty toned down comparing to fresh draught Pp, but offers a slight boozey experience with watery afterdrink. Tastes like dates, a little sugar cane and tiny bit bitterness.

Poured from 12oz bottle from Blackwells.. Prune raisen and grape notes. Smells like red wine. Plum and notes of chocolate. Complex and delicious.

mathieuc (1663) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a thin fizzy offwhite head that rushes away and leave few lacing. Nose is raisins and plum, caramel and candi sugar. Wow. There is an incredible depth to it, I could smell it all night. Taste is moderately sweet and has a light vinous edge. Flavors of caramel, raisins, chocolate and oak. Body is full and carbonation low. A lot of wood and tannins but it’s all positive here. Almost no alcohol heat, amasingly drinkable. Awesome!

Aroma with a hint of red wine. It’s taste takes a while to give all its shades in the mouth.

Très bon palais, le goût arrive par étapes. Bière crèmeuse, peu houblonné. Goût composé de plusieurs saveurs bien équilibrée entre elle.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle brought back from Bruges. Poured a really dark brown/ amber, with a big, dense off white head. Lovely aroma of prunes, raisins, dates, Belgian yeast, spice and malt. Complex flavours, some port, molasses, candy sugar and nutmeg. Finish is perfectly rounded; smooth dark malt, caramel, dark rum and booze soaked fruit. It’s a classic.

Alusmamuts (607) - LATVIA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle 33 cl of 2010. Dark brown wit small light brown head. Sweet bread aroma. Sweet taste with some sourness followed by dry caramel bitterness. FRuity notes in the taste.

jphartley (36) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2014
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.
