The Pannepot Reserva was an idea from my brew colleague 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.

Dark brown pour, tan head that lingers. Aroma of rum, vanilla, dried fruits, caramel. The mouthfeel is sublime, very smooth bitterness and creamy texture. Loads of vanilla and raisin sweetness. High expectations met - outstanding.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2015 Pours hazy deep brown with a huge light brown head. Aroma is wineous, roasted malt, dried fruit, raisins mainly. Flavour is soft malty sweet. Strong fruity and complex profile, really lovely blend. Alcohol makes a short appearance. Slight smoked note and soft malty caramel with a strong alcohol note in the finish.

Bottle from Saveur Bière (2010). Big, creamy, beige head. Dark brown body. Smells of sugar, yeast, apricot, vanilla, nuts, spices. Tastes vanilla, roasted coffee beans, apricot, yeast, chocolate, nuts, spices and oak. The oak aging is clearly in the taste, which I’m not sure if it’s good or bad. I think compared to the normal Pannepot, it actually takes over some of the taste even though it’s still making it a bit more complex and full in its taste.

2010 vintage Bottle split two ways. Murky dark brown pour, small brown head. Aromas of oak and roast. Taste is sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of oak, booze, roasted malts, sweet toffee. Cloying. A touch of oxidation. Finished sweet and syrupy. Meh.

A black body offers mahogany trim when illuminated, sporting a fading half inch of khaki head which settles to a solid ring

Eloquent, coating and cohesive... oak barrel, brown and dark fruit, molasses and honey coalesce to create a smooth, rich, very well nuanced experience with depth of complexity, exceptionally smooth and flowing transitions with solid intensity... coffee, blueberry juice, almond, macadamia nut, cream, brown sugar, maple syrup and pancakes, butterscotch, cola, a touch of raspberry... all on a creamy, silky smooth medium body with a touch of rounded, tingling carbonation to reignite all the complexities as the lasting residual forms and speaks... this is excellent

11.2 FL OZ bottle 2010 vintage served at 55º into 16 oz Sade Brandy snifter
