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.

Dark reddish brown beer, nice lacing once again. Lovely sweet, complex and vinous aroma, the alcohol is more present here than in the original but it smells like heaven itself. So malty, spicy, fruity, now with some nice wooden notes mixed in rather than distracting the whole like in Pannepot Grand reserva. So soft yet very warming, you can feel the alcohol mostly when it has already gone down your throat. Superb beer, at least as good as the regular pannepot which makes it a perfect beer or perfect beer plus for me. Got to get more of this, If I had to drink only one beer for the rest of my life it would be this one. Still gay for Pannepot, have to five the bastard and shut up now before someone gets annoyed with me.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2009
An almost black colored beer, with a beautiful dark thick foamy beige head. It leaves a beautiful lace on the glass. The aroma of dark malts with dried fruits. Some sweet with spices. Complex. The taste has a thick dark malty flavor with fruits like prune and raisins. There are notes of oak. Also some spices in the back. The aftertaste is smooth, with some nice bittersweet with warming alcohol.

2005 bottle shared at tasting. Poured dark with red around the edges, tan head. Aroma of is very subtle, with light oak, dark fruit, and spice. Taste is well balanced mix of fruit, malt, oak. Some light chocolate flavors are noticable. Finish is smooth and refreshing. No alcohol is present in this 10%’er. Overall, a very nice brew.

Bontus (634) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle, Hopduvel. Pours ink black with a tan head. Sweet fruits with coffee malts and a touch of caskwood and oak. Sweet with a vinous lactic sourness and a subtle bitterness. Full bodied but rather soft carbonation. Excellent beer.

KnutAlbert (6136) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2009
On tap at the Football Pub, Rome. A beer elexir, with all the elements expertly blended in. Sweet, malty, heavy, yet balanced. Coffee, cocoa, spices, malt. Just lovely. Dangerously strong to have on tap!

sloth (2502) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Medium sized tan head with good retention and fair lacing. Hazy, brown with a copper hue. Nose is chock full of rather dark fruits, raisins, plums, notes of caramel and berries, light lumber notes and a hint musty, faint alcohol also. Big in body, oily on the palate with a soft carbonation though a light prickly sensation is noted. Fruity flavors, chocolatey notes, wood, light spices, caramel and a nice earthyness. Lightly sweet, fruity finish, alcohol is well represented in a good way, of course ;) A BIG tastey brew thats well worth the price. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

decaturstevo (5155) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2009
A huge thanks to tronraner for offering up the beer of the day. Aroma is deep brown sugar with a clinging sweet fruitiness that is amazing. A deep brown pour with a creamy tan head and lace. Dark fruit flavor with molasses and a hint of warmth. Just a bit too foamy for me is all that kept this from going through the roof. thanks again joe!

2005 Bottle sample from STLWill (Thanks!) Dark brown pour, medium carbonation and a wonderful plum and spice aroma. Flavor was intense spice, clove, pepper, brown sugar, raisins and plenty of effervesence. Very good beer, I can only hope to try this again sometime.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2009
[Bottle] shared by STLWill. Pours a clear deep brown with a large beige head. Aroma is amazingly rich with lots of raisins, tons of brown sugar, cinnamon, clove, and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet, slightly tart, oaky, raisins and brown sugar, and a touch of alcohol. Phenomenal beer, and one I’ve been looking to try for a while now.
