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.

Fin (7910) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2009
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Belgium, consumed at Kemmel campsite 11-06-09 Pours dark chesnut brown with a light beige head. Big malty aroma with dark sticky fruits, dates, figs and some stewed fruits start to show, there is also some candy sugar showing. Taste is really smooth, sticky and quite sublime. This tastes like a wonderful dessert with alcohol soaked dark fruits, the dates and figs showing again in the mouth. I don’t really get the oakiness but I think that the ageing has definately smoothed out this wonderful beer. A7 A5 F8 P5 Ov16 4.1

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 17, 2009
Vintage 2007 from crackedkettle.com. Cork, marmite, apple, coconut, oak, salt and glue showing up in both nose and taste. Sweet. Malt accentuated. Full bodied. Lively carbonation. The characteristics which appear from the ageing are quite prominent. Very low bitterness. Sweet malty finish with hints of apple and huge amounts of spinach and apricot. Dissapointing.

Ibrew2or3 (7229) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours hazy brown with copper hues and tan head. The aroma is sweet with cherry compote, grape jam, sweet plums, dates and red candied apples. I get a bit of booze on a big draw. The taste is rich and fruity with a mild tart fruity candy note in the background. I get sugar coated raisins, ripe plums, ripe peaches and a sweet rich layer of cherry. It smooths out nicely into the finish. Brew brewed with yum!

beernbourbon (1355) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pours murky brown with minimal tan head. Aroma is spicy, cloves, cinnamon, fruity, dates, raisins, wood pokes through, and a nice malty smoothness. Flavor is a bit more cohesive than aroma, nice malty sweetness up front with fruity and woody notes towards the end. Finish is velvety, woody and sweet. Subtle alcohol burn too. Very nice.

gkost (1710) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2009
thanks kiefdog for the share. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while now. POurs a murky brown. Aroma is sweet with tons of things going on. Some rich spices, malt sweetness, ripe dark fruits, semi sweet chocolate. Flavors are much of the same with some barnyard funk, rich malts, sweet sugars, spicy yeast notes. Bready, raisins, more spices, booze. Wonderfully complex beer in every way. I NEED more.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2009
75cl bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Athens, GA). Pours a dark brown to black with one finger white-tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of yeast, wheat, candy sugar, brown sugar, ripe dark fruits, run-soaked raisins, some hints of chocolate and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with similar notes of brown sugar, ripe dark fruit, candy sugar, molasses, rummy-raisins, and carmel. Generally medium to full body with a pleasing malty finish.

markwise (4565) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Thanks kiefdog for the share. Amazing beer that is heavy, but lovable. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is caramel, candy sugar, and some raisiny goodness with some alcohol. Flavor is very similar with a thick sweetness and lots of sugary, raisiny goodness coming out. Deep, dark and excellent complex beer.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - JUN 4, 2009
Muddy brown with a little vanishing head. Plenty of dried fruits, red berries, plums, malt, with just an hint of roasted & spices. The flavour is sweet, fruity. Thick body. The alcohol is not that hidden, and perhaps is also a bit too carbonated. A very good beer nevertheless.

kappldav123 (5279) - GERMANY - JUN 4, 2009
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Deep black color, nice head. Starts strong-malty, modest smoky, intense notes of liquorice. Finish well balanced, smoky-malty, still very much liquorice. Not as strong as exspected, a bit too much liquorice. Thanks to Bierkoning for the bottle!
