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.

11.2 oz. bottle 2008 vintage. Pours a dark brown color with a creamy beige head. The aroma is rather soft, but very much like regular Pannepot. The flavor has notes of oak, nutmeg, dark fruits, brown sugar and vanilla. The finish is drier and slightly sour, and seemingly more complex than regular Pannepot. Full bodied and very smooth; this is a great sipper. I think that overall this is as good as the regular Pannepot, but for different reasons. I have a 750 ml from 2005 in the cellar that I will have to crack some day.

2008 bottle. Pour is dark brown with a quick kahki head that dissapears. Aroma has a bitter sour malt yeasty scent along with some brown sugar and brunt mollasses. Taste is nice dark fruit and brown sugar along with more mollasses and malt. Palate is medium feel with nice carbonation.

As pictured. Pours burgundy with orange glints and a patchy beige swirl of head. Plum brandy, spiced apple, muscovado and English confectionery aroma (brown and white Allsorts, liquorice boot laces). Tastes like Highgate with a shot of Ricard; slick and cake-accented with bags of brown sugar, liquorice and aniseed. Some toasted bread and caramel in the aftertaste. Slick, tasty, very restrained oak. Nothing special.

2008 vintage served on tap at O’Brien’s during SDBW at Attack of the Barrel night. The appearance is a cloudy deeper amber brown. The aromas are caramel, bready, dark fruits, baking spices. The flavors are sweet malts, brown sugar, candied sugar, dark fruits. The mouth is fuller bodied but a little flatter. The bottle conditioning I’ve had on the other varieties add a lot of good carbonation that is missing here. Tasty brew still.

Arayaga2 (2102) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Hazy brown, with yeasty chunks and a light brown cm of thick foam, with strong lace and legs. Aroma is slightly vinous with a touch of woody cherry notes. Taste is richly alcoholic, with apple and pear esters, and woody coffee astringency into the finish. Not exactly a calliope of flavors, this is rather narrow-band, and well carbonated. $10/11.2oz

Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Pours a clear and reddish brown beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, hops and spices. The flavor is malt, sweetness and spices. The palate is sweet. Overall a good beer.

11/10/10 notes: Pours hazelnut brown, slightly hazy with small cream colored head. Aroma has fantastic depth, focused around sweet malt, mixed nuts, oak and dates. Maybe some cinnamon notes thrown in as well. Palate is perfect in its decadent creaminess. Flavor follows aroma, and the richness of it all is absolutely fantastic. Lingering oak, sweet bread french toast with caramelized brown sugar on finish. Similar to regular Pannepot for sure, perhaps the enhanced oak and hint of tartness are new.

Rating #500. 2008 bottle. Nearly opaque mahogany color with a small bone colored head that resembles a thick liquid. The aroma is loaded with figs, plum, cherry, toffee, and caramel. The flavor mirrors the aroma, with tart cherries, mellow alcohol, and a woody finish. Soft and creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Very tasty stuff, well worth the wait.

2008 bottle. Murky light brown in color with a small off white head. Dark fruit, brown sugar and cola aromas. Fig, cherry, and grape, with big oak and sweet malt/brown sugar characteristics. A great beer....

Pours brown with a small just-off-white bubbly head. Aroma is much like the normal Pannepot but heavier on the alcohol and on the wood notes. Flavor is not as good as the original in my opinion, kind of flat and the wood characteristics can overpower the dark fruits and sweetness that made the other one so outstanding. Good, but not as good as the original in my opinion.
