COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

CanIHave4Beers (3942) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Pours a deep burgundy color with a big head and lots of lace. The aroma is brown sugar and earthy notes with some raisins, some floral notes, and a good nutty and spicy character. The flavor is raisny again but has a nice spicy and earthy bit with some molasses and a warming booziness. The palate is very full but a little bit slick. Really a damn rich delicious beer.

2008. Very raisiny, through and through. A tiny bit of chocolate. Awesomely balanced and dry. Slightly dirty. Spicy raisin fills your nostrils.

jredmond (7228) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle split with Tony. Pours a murky, hazy brown body with nice thin light brown lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and Belgian candy? Mouthfeel is smooth, slightly carbonated with notes of spice, clove, wheat...solid beer - still think the original PANNEPOT PWNS.

TonyDiUlio (661) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Had compliments of james generosity and good looks. Pour is a nice dark brown with a thin cloudy cover of head over the beer with minor lacing. Aroma is amazing balance of sweet malts, oak, alcohol, and cherry. Flavor is cherry malts, alcohol, and some hints of wood and bread. Nice brew indeed.

drowland (7798) - Georgia, USA - OCT 16, 2010
10/16/10. 2008 vintage. Slightly sour sweet caramel malty aroma with a hint of grapes and woody tannins. Very sweet caramel flavor with definite maltiness, sweet grape juice, and brown sugar with a touch of oak. Was expecting more out of this, honestly.

MrBunn (2674) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2011 Original review below, revised review after a year plus of aging: Aromas and flavor have added some pretty good oxidation notes... sherry & prunes/plum. I’m not picking up the wateriness that I noted earlier and it is a much fuller and lovely. Original score: 7 4 8 4 14 Bottle. Thin brown body with lots of carbonation and aromas of oak, brown sugar, dates and raisins. Flavor is a watery mix of the above that is pretty disappointing compared to my expectations. A little too thin, a little too sweet, a little too directionless. Still good, but expecting more.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle. 2008 vintage. Pours a dark brown slightly murky color with a tan head that quickly settles to form a nice collar around the glass. Raisin, grape, and other dark fruit aromas in the nose. Maybe a slight malt aroma as well. Medium mouthfeel. Dark fruit apparent in the taste with notes of raisin and plum. No real oak tastes all that much. Some booze evident. Overall, not a bad beer but not as good as I would have thought or wanted.
