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.

750 ml bottle; 2005 vintage; one of my fav beers; pours clear caramel brown with 1Ē tan head; aromas of stale dark fruits, an almost sour note, mild oxidation, mildly creamy texture again with some oxidation and mild sourness; missing that big sugary malt base that I remember from before; not all that bad overall, but a slight sourness is evident in this bottle and itís certainly not what it once was; too bad as I was saving this one for the end of the year; used to be one of the best; this one Iíd score a 3.5 or so, but Iíll keep most of my original rating and just say donít age this one too long!!

Original rating 2/19/09 (Score - 4.3): 750 ml bottle; thanks after4ever!! 2006 vintage; pours clear, roasty brown with fizzt tan head; oh, man this is one of the greats and reminds me of how much i loved my first pannepot; very complex aromas of oak, dates, candy spice, yeast, chocolate and who knows what else; all the same there in the flavors; creamy texture goes down like silk and not a trace of the 10%; pretty much perfection and looking forward to another bottle!!

08 vintage. Uber dark brown pour with reddish tints and a large, frothy, creamy beige head. Aroma is full of vinous notes, spice, yeast, raisin, caramel, red grape, apple, pear, and a touch of boozy molasses. Flavor is just simply awesome; full of all sorts of fruit, including plum, apple, pear, grape, and even a touch of nectarine. Also some great caramel, brandy, oak, and some tannic qualities. Once again, de Struiseís yeast puts this beer up onto a level that most just simply canít compete with. Booze also comes through nicely, but the palate is just amazingly smooth. Phenomenal brew.

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.

Pours a murky brown with a small head which surprises me as all Struise beers Iíve 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 (6144) - 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. Iíll take the regulat Pannepot.

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.

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.
