COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Thanks to mar for sharing this bottle. 2005 vintage. The beer pours a medium brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is vanilla, oak and caramel. Very nice. The flavor is strong oak with some vanilla and a little bit of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - APR 18, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2010 very sweet aroma of caramel, old fruit, spice, and waffles. it’s very dark red with a thin brown head. flavor is again very sweet, with biting alcohol, raisins, and some spices. it’s chewy but maybe a bit thin. overall it’s a dark, fruity, quadrupell-y, port. flavor is poorly balanced, but otherwise this is perfect

SrSilliGose (3310) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 5, 2010
2005 bottle. Pours a dark brown with some with a nice frothy beige head. Aroma has meaty red wine charcter with additional sherry, tart unripened plum, and spice notes. Some booze is present, but is very complimentary to the rest of the beer. More doughy peat like notes take the stage as the beer warms. Nice body. Overall, a tasty and pungent vinous, sherry, dark fruit blend with some tart unripened pitty fruit notes. Pretty solid. Enjoyed with before easter brunch.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

Plovmand (6936) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 1, 2010
Bottle. Dark reddish brown body with a creamy longlasting off white head. The aroma is heavy fruity, light oaky, spice, loads of caramel and lovely ripe fruit. The flavour is heavy fruit, oak, vinous, light spice, grapes, lots of caramel, prune, raisins and apricot.Complex and very drinkable. You just enjoy every sip of this. Love it.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 31, 2010
0.33l Bottle from armando. 2005 vintage. Huge thanks!
Appearance: Pours dark brown with deep-ruby red tint. Small dark-brown head on the top. Creamy head-texture with limited lacing.
Aroma: Vibrant, dried fruity scent with hints of cognac or calvados(?). A bit of peppermint-like yeasty bite.
Flavor: A perfect dessert-beer. Mellow plums and figs with distinct dark candi sugar sweetness. Smooth vanilla, caramel malty-sweetness, almonds, dark chocolates, somewhat whiskeyish alcohol warmth fills the mouth softly and gently. A bit of tannic tart, quality at the medium. Tricky finish with peppery dryness and a huge sweet, fruity-oaky background.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Smooth, yeast derived fruity fullnes. Excellent mouth-filling quality. Mellow sweetness with gentle, peppery yeast notes.
Overall: Nice and soft brew from DSB. The alcohol presence is a bit more than expected. Huge, mellow stuff anyway.

Vaiz (3796) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle at home. Dark brown pour, very small off-white head. Aroma of smoke, coffee, licorice and spices. Flavor starts sweet and sugary, but then goes straight towards bitter and coffee with caramel, smoke and oak. Very nice. Bitter finish, low carbonation.

GT2 (9273) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Whoa buddy. Rating #1100. An amazing treat to say the least. 330mL (multiple samples). Pours almost black with a very nice beige head that has excellent retention and crazy lacing. Aroma is red delicious apples, fresh apple cider, buttered waffles, maple syrup, rum-soaked pecan pie, baba rum dessert. Holy mother. Taste is rich, candied pecans, sweet dark fruits, calvados warming alcohol, light barrel/oak notes. Buttery, beautiful palate. Just stupid awesome.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2010
Almost the trademark from the land of ostriches. Oakaged Pannepot from 2007, bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. The pour is dark brown with an red edge in the light. The top is crowend with a fluffe latte coloures head that stays alert and present. Nice. The nose is citric with mild malty notes along with some marzipan, wet bread and brown sugar (as in irish coffee). The taste is huge and is dominated of an overwhelming sweetness. You doesnt really get the impression that your dealing with a 10 % alc. beer if it wasn´t for the bites in your lower lipp. It has a markedly malt profile with some sour notes as in flamish sour ales without being dominating. I guess this beer would be excellent served to some strong cheeses. Some chocolatish sweetness in the finish. Highly carbonated which leaves a fizzy palate
