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.

TheAlum (6487) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
750 ml bottle shared by drew. Pours a murky brownish pour, lighter edges, a decent tannish head that dies to a firm film, laces ok. Aromas are brown sugar, zesty Belgian spice, vanilla, faint dark fruit, a decent fruitiness underneath. Initial is a bit underbodied, fresh apple sauce and brown sugar, vanilla, faint honey, caramel, toffee, pear, light spiciness, mellow and smooth on the palate. Vanilla tannins from the oak are gentle yet flavorful. Medium bodied, finish is mellow sweetness, faint bitterness, mellow spice sticks to the palate. Very nice, solid Belgian, priviledge to have tried.

teorn88 (4734) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2010
33cl bottle. Pours a dark ruby/black color and a medium lasting nutty head. Aroma is wonderful: mostly malty with toasted notes and cookies. Spices, oak, alcohol and dried fruits in my nose too. Taste: the initial bitterness turns suddenly to a warm alcoholic sweetness. Dried fruits notes in the finish. Palate: full-bodied with creamy texture and medium carbonation. Overall, I found a very balanced beer between hops and malt where the 10 allcohol is well hidden. Anyway, I expected more complex and warming beer and, most of all, an evolving beer, something that changes face during the drinking experience. Still, a splendid beer!

Thanks to mar for sharing this bottle. 2005 vintage. The beer pours a medium brown color with a khaki head. The aroma is vanilla, oak and caramel. Very nice. The flavor is strong oak with some vanilla and a little bit of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - APR 18, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2010 very sweet aroma of caramel, old fruit, spice, and waffles. its very dark red with a thin brown head. flavor is again very sweet, with biting alcohol, raisins, and some spices. its chewy but maybe a bit thin. overall its a dark, fruity, quadrupell-y, port. flavor is poorly balanced, but otherwise this is perfect
