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.

Bottle thanks to Gabe. Poured pitch black with big tan head. Aroma had a tart note to it with oak and spices. Taste was very complex. Oak, Spice, dark fruit, vanilla, raisins. Very silky smooth mouth feel. Easy to drink and enjoyed very much Thanks Gabe.

2006 version. I think this was also shared by Tom. The aroma is sweet and sugary, lots of candy, french toast, dark fruits, light tartness, wood. Pours a muddy red brown. Lots of dark malts in the flavor, dark fruits, fruity candy, a touch of tartness from the oak. Really an interesting beer. Glad I got to try this.

Thanks to tocdog69 for a share of this wondrous beer! Lovely dark pour, amber but not murky. Its got a vibrant quality to it that exemplifies the complex flavors it contains. The nose is amazing, with a complex blend of barrel (woody and oaky, not that generic smoothness you often get with the pretenders), mild vanilla, rich and varied spices. The mouthfeel is amazingly silky, and the way that the regular Pannepot (itself a superlative beer) has been transformed is just a delight, with mild sour flavors enriching it. Awesome. I hope I have another chance to try this sometime.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2010 RE RATE SON. Pours a dark copper brown with ruby highlights and one finger of creamy tan head. Nose has an upfront tartness and noticeable vinous quality. Notes of fig and spice with chocolate and caramel coming out with warmth. Flavor shows dark candy sugar and fruit with a mild sweet spice and some Belgian yeast character. Palate shows a nice vinous tartness with some warmth.

TheEpeeist (3351) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2009
25.4 oz bottle, 2005. Deep brown with a thin beige haze that leaves lots of lace. Nose is figs, dates and raisin with oak and chocolate. Silky, almost full, body with a light tingle. Taste is raisin, woody apple and toffee. Finishes with hints of cantaloupe. Very smooth but barrel aging has softened the flavor dynamic. Still excellent.

Bottle 75cl. Pours a nice brown/red color. Aroma is filled with vanilla,caramel,fudge,spice and lots of fruit. Taste is about the same as the aroma with some marzipan in there aswell. Great!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Brown colored beer with a firm tan head. Rockin aroma showcases the intricate complexities of Pannepot, with added notes of vanilla, red burgundy and a very light toasted wood. Nose is awesome. Flavor is mildly disappointing. The barrel seemed to mellow and tame the original Pannepot, but it seemed to lose a bit of its flavor intensity and concentration. Doesnt quite have the depth of flavor or body of regular Pannepot. That being said, still a killer brew.
