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.

330 mL bottle from Samís Quik Stop in Durham (2008 bottle). Muddy brown pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of light bretty funkiness, raisins, and Belgian candi sugars. The flavor is sweet with notes of brown sugar and caramel and lightly fruity apple, pear, and red grapes. Alcohol is well hidden for the most part but does add to the overall flavor and mouthfeel of this beer. Spot on for the style.

Bottle 2008: Pours cloudy brown (and I did let it sit for 2 days). Smells phenolic with bark and treacle notes. Well blow me that didnít taste anything like I thought it would. No taste-bud assault here; instead, itís really mellow. It has a syrupy body with a very low level of bitterness. Thereís a sort of pine-resin and raisin flavour underpinning it with a slightly sour watery soy-sauce bite on the finish. If this were a UK beer I guess it would be an Old Ale. Not really my thing but it would probably be quite nice as the final drink of a session just before bed.

2008 Bottle. Poured a very dark brownish black with a slightly oily light-tan head. Aroma has lots of chocolate malt and coffee with plenty of oak. Some nice fruity notes as well. Some raisin and brown sugar. Quite a complex aroma. Taste is remarkably smooth for the alcohol amount. Raisins, plumbs, dark fruits, oak, and vanilla all present. The yeast gives a slightly tart note with distinctly Belgian flavors. The chocolate malts and coffee are less noticeable in the taste than in the aroma. Alcohol is slightly noticeable in the aftertaste, but it is still very smooth. A few spices in the aftertaste as well, as if this beer couldnít get more complex. This is a very good beer and the oak aging is a very nice touch.

Thanks to bmanning for sharing the 2007 vintage at a recent tasting with Azurelimits, Amyliz4, hhanson, and myself. A: Pours a light mahogany with chestnut and ruby hues both coming through. Small off-white head. S: Belgian yeast with quite a bit of spiciness atop a bit of miscellaneous fruitiness. T: Nice spice notes of allspice, nutmeg, and clove in addition to a nice caramel malt sweetness coming through. Hints of vanilla and dark fruits. M: Medium bodied with a very nice creaminess to it. Intriguing complexity. D: Very drinkable, and one I definitely wish I had a bit more of to try. Another excellent beer in the Pannepot series. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-03-2010

2008 version, 330ml bottle from Westlakeview liquors. Enjoyable but missing something from the original. . Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a bubbly off white head. Carbonation missing. Aroma of molasses, dark fruits, vanilla, pice crust, spices and almonds. Flavor of caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, nuts and toasted malt along with some spices and earthy notes. Slightly less enjoyable than the original, could be my palate has had hundreds of more beers to compare than the last one. Still a top notch brew. Love Struise brews!

It looks already great when you pour it out! The color makes the beer special (dark hazy brown). You can really taste the malt and the chocolaty taste afterwards. It has also hints of caramel, dried fruits and coffee. You should only drink this beer on special occasions!

Tasted at Belmont Station. This beer is very rich and fruity. There are hints of dried fruit like figs along with a nicespicy malty edge. The body is rich and this is an amazingly smooth beer for its strength. The finish is malty and fruity with spicy notes of baking spices and just a touch of hops. This is definitely a beer to sit down with and contemplate life. It would probably go great with chocolate or other desserts.

11.2oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spice, chocolate, roasted malts, and slight hoppiness. This is a great Belgian ale, and the oak flavor really comes in on the finish. The alcohol is not too strong, but you can tell itís there. Definitely recommended.
