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 with a huge fluffy beige head. Aroma is vinous and delicious, with some typical pannepot yeast characteristics and some dark fruits, pear, raisins, dates, caramel and toffee malts, apple brandy. Flavor is decadent pear, apple brandy, red grape, nice de struise yeast burnt sugars, tasty

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Dark brown pour with a lively off white head. The aroma is loaded with dark fruits has that raisin-fig-prune note that the regular Pannepot exhibits with lots of tannic vinous notes and a slight apple note. The yeast character is bready and fruity, demonstrating some mild spice. The flavor is massive dark fruit and beautifully balanced dark and tart fruit. Brown sugar, molasses, and caramel also prevail. The palate is thick rich, and tannic in its woodyness. The finish is dry and a bit sugary.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Pours a murky brown with a small head which surprises me as all Struise beers I’ve had has a huge head especially Pannepot. The aroma has the same nice fruitiness like the original Pannepot. The taste was caramel, fruity, spices and cannot say I taste any oak, but it does not seem as smooth as the regular Pannepot which I like the best amongst all its variants

Pailhead (5801) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle: The aroma consists of dark fruits, apple, raisins, vanilla, and oak. It pours a cloudy orangish-brown with a small off-white head. The flavor starts very yeasty with moderate apple. The finish has hints of raisin, oak, and a touch of plum. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and somewhat soft mouthfeel. I’ll take the regulat Pannepot.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2010
2008 bottle. Murky, ruddy brown pour with a small, loose white head. The aroma is ripe dark fruit, a hint of molasses, some subtle spices, dense oak, chocolate and tobacco. The flavor is delicately sweet plum and fig with touches of caramelized brown sugar, tobacco, oak, spice, candi sugar, banana, and leather. Velvety medium-full body with soft carbonation.

tderoeck (6591) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2010
Pours a cloudy redbrown beer, creme-coloured head. Smells sweet, caramel, banana, raisins. Tastes a little sweet, full and round. A little sour touch. The aftertaste is all caramel and roasted malts. A little tart but not unpleasant.

Dorstig (51) - Oegstgeest, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2010
Pours a brownish/red with thin beige head which leaves an attractive lacing. Aroma very complex, herbal, tar, leather, vineous, some smoke, reminescent of aged brandy. In the mouth the same glorious sweet, sticky maltiness as in the "normal" Pannepot with tones of oak. pinewood, earth leaves, raisins. A balanced mellow finish. Glorious!!

Bottle of the ’08. Where the hell did this beer come from? It seems radically different from all the other pannepot variants I have had. Aroma has big fruit and flowers up front with very light vanilla and a hint of paper. The flavor is dried apples and peaches with a dry, yeasty finish. Weird for pannepot, but pretty nice all the same.

A: The pour is a dark amber color, perhaps we could call it mahogany with a fluffy tan head on top. S: There are lots of different dark fruit aromas here, perhaps some figs, plums, raisins, along with a non-dark fruit--pears. A lot of caramel malt, brown sugar, and a hint of bread. T: A mild spiciness followed by an intense dark, sweet fruitiness. Raisins, plums, figs, cherries, and brown sugar with a hint of alcohol and perhaps even a bit of oak. M: The body is medium to full with a very creamy and full level of carbonation. D: I like the regular Pannepot a fair amount and this is even better. A really fantastic beer and one that I would easily drink again.
