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.

Bottle shared at Cardinal, Stavanger. Bottle labeled "2010". Pours dark brown. Aroma of raisins. Can’t taste the difference to the "normal" Pannepot.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl au Sherwood Pub (Nicorvo) couleur brune, peu de mousse et effervescence quasi inexistante. Bouteille estampillée 2009. Grosse attaque sur le caramel et le fruit rouge continuité sur le grillé et la noix grosse tuerie.

Bosskie (455) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2014
Coffee bitterness, chocolate, light alcohólico touch, some grain, leathet, subtle resin and raisins. Wood, subtle bitterness. Spicy. Taste starts sweet chocolate with a full oily feel. Creamy and nutty. Evolves info fizziness, with souwood and leather. Alcohólic, fizzy sweetness. Saltiness. Dry clear finish. Beautiful balance.

The first Calvados barrel aged version of Pannepot, of limited production. It boasts the same incredible complexity, finesse, tempting bouquet and greatness as the regular Pannepot and more, with the emphatic oak tannins and vanilla adding a considerable amount of additional complexity. Dried fruits, sweet tobacco, sherry, bourbon, walnuts, calvados, balsamic vinegar are all there - and very intelligently blended. I must do a side by side tasting of this and the Grand Reserva but from memory, both were equal in absolute divinity.

Pours a dark brown body with a thin head. Aroma of bread, burnt candy and wood. Very rich taste with all the malty flavours you can think of. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bière ou merveille, merveille de bière en tous les cas. Quadruple de 10% abv, définie par le brasseur comme une « old fisherman’s ale aged on oak ». Couleur plutôt marron extra foncé que noir (bien située par le brasseur comme une « hazy dark brown ». Opacité totale. Mousse d’un café expresso, joli nappage crémeux (creamy beige). Arômes de malt torréfié, fève de cacao, chocolat Lindt noir 75 %, whisky Macallan 15 ans, fruits secs, pain 7 céréales. 1ère bouche veloutée qui est un pur plaisir concentré, une anthologie en elle-même. Arrière-bouche large, vaste, que dis-je … gigantesque, avec du café, chocolat, malt et levure. 2ème sur un ensemble fruits secs/bois/candi avec une fine pointe de cookie. 3ème bouche, comment dire … tout est dans ce breuvage : fruits, bois, malt, épices, levure .. et un équilibre strictement diabolique... La longueur donne des milliers d’impressions gustatives supplémentaires, qui en font presque un monde de science-fiction !! La levure est une veine sidérante, fine, soyeuse, un rien d’épice d’Orient en direct. L’alcool : quelle valeur en soi pour soutenir pareil brassin, une force colossale, mais il assume parfaitement. La finale est un pur nectar venant de la marmite des dieux. CONCLUSION : il faut dire d’abord en préalable que coter cette bière sous la cote de 4,7 est une ineptie … (cela fait quand même 63 personnes sur 880 qui sont du bon côté de la balance !!!). Ceci dit, pour moi, c’est la grandeur des grandeurs, la splendeur des splendeurs. Son altesse la Sérénissime Pannepot dans sa version mûrie en fût est tout simplement un sommet de l’art brassicole. Un pur absolu... la texture est divine et le brassin paradisiaque. Pour mon 555 ème rate, je peux ainsi donner un 555 sur 100... C’est magnifique, comme dit Arno... Elle rejoint ainsi son amie la St Amatus !! (au paradis évidemment!)

The colour is like a dark chocolate. Huge light brown head but it dissolves quickly. There’s roasty malt flavour and liquorice also. Hints of caramel and lots of undefined spiceness. Warms up the throat quite fast. Good beer but maybe just my type.

this is the 2008 version. Poured a seriously dark brown with a quickly disapating head. Big heavy aroma of date and fig and belgian goodness that puts a smile on my face. Carbonation is perfect with this one and it really coats your palate. Flavor is very sweet with the same fig/date flavors sprinkled with some spicy notes, maybe nutmeg, lasting long after you finished. I really liked this one.

Wow. Has aroma of dehydrated plums, cherry and a bit of port wine. It’s dark, non-transparent. With amazing beautiful head. The head looks like it was nitro carbonated. In taste - honestly, I was speechless. There are notes of plums, chocolate, cacao with a note of port wine. In mouth it feels highly carbonated. It’s very drinkable cuz alcohol is unnoticeable. The body is rather small and thin.
