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.

Defreni (2787) - Husum, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2010
Flaske: Årgang 2006 første batch. Åbner med et pop hvilket lover godt. Duft af tørret frugt med en anelse surhed til dem. Smagen er yderst kompleks med lag på lag af tørret frugt, portvin og fadlagring der giver den en distinkt surhed. Dette bliver næsten for meget hvilket gør at den ikke kommer helt op at ringe i min bog.

BigMomma (223) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2010
UPDATED: APR 19, 2011 33cl bottle vintage 2007. Black color with a decent brown head that moves to the side of the glass. When the bottle was opened the strong aroma’s where spreading throughout the room. The aroma is very complex and changes with every minute! Dry fruit, spices, yeast, malt, bread, oak, pepercake. The taste is sweet and complex with malt, pepercake, coffee, oak and a nice light bitter finish. The body is full and sticky with some nice carbonization. In the end there is some nice alcohol warmth. Superb!

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogany/brown with a light brown head. The aroma is roasted malt, rock candy, raisins, plumes and is quite vinous. Flavour is sweet malt, caramel, oak, dark fruit and a hint of alcohol, lovely and complex.

Abio (1768) - Waasland, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2010
UPDATED: APR 1, 2010 Bottle 2007 Less head then the "normal", also disappears some quicker it seems. Color seems to be about the same. Tastes more fruity then the "normal" one. The aroma is some less good, but the taste is ok. Taste seems a bit less complex then the "normal" one. But it’s nice.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2010
2007 vintage bottle bought at de Bierkoning, Amsterdam. A finger of dense, blond foam, resting on a red shaded, dark nut brown body. Rich and vinous aroma with a refined and rounded malt sweetness, an inviting fruity sweetness of overripe tropical fruits and yellow apples. Delicate sweet flavors. Mild toffee-ish malts. And again, lots of inviting, ripe fruits. Some gentle wood tones, a touch of vanilla, some mild spices, all together with a fine Cherry- or maybe Vermouth-like accent. Lingering alcohol warmth throughout. Big body, supersmooth in the mouth. A fine dryness emerge in the finish. A just love the various Pannepot editions, and this one is no exception. Delicious!

douglas88 (7175) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 24, 2010
750 ml bottle, 2005 edition (!) thanks to Eric, thanks a lot man. Pours a dark red-brown color with lots of particulates, murky with a large white foamy head. A sweet fruity nose, light oak and chocolates. A great flavor; tangy, strawberries and other fruit, chocolates, yeast, sweet cherries, close to being tart. Very good and sort of dry and light oxidation after 5 years. Very good.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2010
Medium brown head. Brownish red body. Linoleum and old carpet aroma with roasty soy sauce and earth notes. Dry-sweetish alcoholic chocolatey earthy taste with dried fruit and spice notes. Full-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish-sweet alcoholic earthy licorice and fruit aftertaste with honey notes. Very mild and balanced. Admirably light and delicate. (0.33l bottle shared by Ole_R.)

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2010
2006 vintage. Dark reddish brown with a medium-sized pale beige head. Good head retention and nice lacings. Deep and rich malty aromas. Lots of fruity notes (cherries, plums, figs, currants) - this is like a fruit basket! Tagging along the fruits are notes of wood, cola and chocolaty fudge, and wonderful caramel notes. Very vinous. Some spicy yeast. Very complex, almost overwhelming. At first, the taste is very reminiscent of red wine- fruity notes, wood, earth and spices make for one vinous experience. After a few sips, things get easier to sort out and the red wine character decreases to some extent. Some malts, but not very powerful. Lovely balance of sweet caramel, fudge, and notes of ripe dark fruits (but not as complex as in the smell). Dry woody notes linger on, Belgian yeast, spices and earth. The sweetness is balanced by a gentle tart note that sticks around to the finish. The finish is mildly bitter with notes of well integrated warming alcohol, currants, wood, mild phenols and hints of iron. Beautiful and rich, very well balanced. Surprisingly light body with rather high levels of carbonation. The mouthfeel definitely makes the beer dangerously easy to drink. All in all, very good, better than the Grand Reserva version. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2009
Deepest, darkest brown with a tan coloured head that fades to a constant film, aroma is sweet and crammed with anise spices. Taste is sweet, malty, dark chocolate and a deffinate licorice hit with a jammy finish. All in all one hell of a cracking beer - MUST stock up with more next year in Brugge.
