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. Dark brown / ruby with a thin off white head. Very similar to the base beer. Oak peeks out a tiny bit and sort of rounds out the beer. Very subtle but very tasty.

John25 (1067) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. Dark caramel brown and cola color. Light vanilla notes and oaky smoothness that is great but, mutes the dark fruits and spice of the base beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Przylus (380) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 22, 2015
UPDATED: APR 23, 2015 Aromat słodowo drożdżowy. Barwa bursztynowa, klarowne. Piana drobna, krótka. W smaku ciężkie, słabo przyswajalne, lekko karmelowe. Być może moja ocena nie jest obiektywna, ale ten styl nie trafia do mnie kompletnie.

Humlehode (299) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2015
Pours dark brown with fluffy head which dissipates after a while. Very nice complex aroma and taste of caramel, coffee, prunes, raisins, oak. Full bodied and very smooth. Lasting after taste. Superb ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle shared with Bruce in his backyard. Pours brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is prunes and some figs. Thick and malty. Flavor follows but is surprisingly clean. Mild bitterness that is just right. Really nice beer and a great friend to share it with.

ChtiBreizh (148) - Rennes, FRANCE - APR 17, 2015
I have not tried the single pannepot yet. This is a very interesting brew with lots of aroma, harmonically fine tuned. Cask wood touch, port aroma is quite present. What I like the more are the roasted and cocoa flavours, with mild sweetness. Alcohol booze is significant.

huineman (413) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 17, 2015
Dark black with a short-lived beige froth. Very intense: banana, prunes, dates, strawberry, chocolate. Coffee liqueur, molasses. Powerful and sweet in the beggining. Mouth-covering as it slowly goes down. Good balance between sweet and sour in the middle. Very long finish with no bitterness. Hints of caramel, walnut, coffee and prunes. Excellent.

neongolden (753) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2015
(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, April 9 2015) Pours deep brown with red highlights like cola, with a thin off white head. Aroma a bit port like with a brown sugar/toffee sweetness, touch of molasses even, stewed plum and a bit of raisin, berries maybe?, herbal, oaky, touch of chocolate. On the palate, rich but not overly sweet with toffee, toasted malt, dried dark fruits and berries, oak with a bit of vanilla/leather character, herbs, becoming nicely dry and even a touch mineral towards the finish. Hints of chocolate to go with the fruit/wood herbs. Faint tannic sort of bitterness in the long aftertaste. Medium full bodied with effervescent carbonation and a little alcohol heat. Supremely elegant beer, the oak character really meshes nicely. Lovely sipper, maybe a bottle with some age might be even better than keg, letting the alcohol smooth. Awesome as is.

ghendrix (144) - Cardiff, WALES - APR 12, 2015
Bottle of 2010 vintage. Pours dark chocolate brown, finger of off-white head. Aromas of brown sugar, molasses, caramel, spices, dark fruits, oak, some herbal notes. Taste is medium sweet, medium-light bitter. Alcohol is present toward the end. Medium body, surprising actually given aroma and appearance. Decent carbonation too. Really like the way the oak has added a level to this. The alcohol is just a bit more present than I’d hoped, otherwise very good.

vipinvelp (2826) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2015
Clear dark ruby, no foam remaining. Nice warm aroma, smell port. Perfect taste, warm alcohol but smooth in mouth, palate explosion. (Velp 201504)
