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.

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 27, 2009
Bottled sample, thanks to Todeon. Pours a red brown color with a nice light brown head. Very nice fruity aroma with some oak and vanilla notes, spices and somewhat a little bit of funk. Flavour is about the same, both sweet and acidic/tart and fruity with some nice gingerbread notes, oak, citrus and spices. Filling in the mouth, pretty smooth. Really nice.

750 mL bottle at the ’09 Fish Fry. Pours dark red brown with a large beige head. The aroma is amazing: raisin, yeast, anise, graham crackers, oak, rum, brown sugar, clove, dark fruit, zest. It smells so good it took me several minutes to take my nose out of the glass to take a sip. The flavor is sweetish at first with raisin, rum, brown sugar, and some sticky prune juice notes. But through the mouth it picks up a faint tartness that cuts the sweetness beautifully. A distinct sharp oak quality develops as well and really does bring the flavors together. The finish and aftertaste are dry and just a touch spicy with residual oakiness lingering far into the dry-ish aftertaste. Very complex and perfectly balanced. This beer is amazing. I want more!

Suttree (5212) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2009
thanks to tronraner for bringing this to Springslicker’s fish fry - Very complex, very tasty. Mix of blackberry, oaky, cherry and orther fruity notes mixed with a lot of woodsy aromas. As nice as it smells, it tastes even better - all of the wood and fruit that was in the aroma, plus red wine, chocolate, maybe some coffee, too. Very, very good.

DocLock (7976) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2009
Bottle from PUB’N. Pours turbid ruddy muddy deep brown with 3-fingers of off-tan head. Nose is earthy, peaty, with caramel malt, spicy notes, some cacao, blackberry, oak, and bourbon. The flavor was spirity, oaky, with figgy fruit, brown sugar, cacao, blackberry, and slight rauchy notes. The palate started semi-sweet, but got more cognacy at mid-point, and more oaky bourbony spirity late! Do whatever you need to in procuring this, but keep it legal. it isn’t worth a felony charge, but it’s close.

vyvvy (4080) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 9, 2009
Pours brown / garnet with a tan soapy, dense head. The aroma has oaky, candy apple, dark toffee, Belgian yeast and oxidation that works for it. Medium / thin body with a lot of soft gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with green apple, dark malt, odd sweet & biting trait, Belgian yeaste, underlying oak and some alcohol. The finish has lots of sourness, green apple and funk. Good interesting and unique. I’m very glad I got to try this one - thought I’d never get a shot.

PhillyBeer2112 (2534) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2009
FRO Throwdown: 2005 bottle. Dark brown, foamy. Chocolate and dry cocoa powder nose. Caramel candy. Nice and sweet but well balanced by a semi-sweet chocolate finish, with hints of caramel and fruit.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2009
750 from Belmont Station. Looks lighter in SRM than reg. pannepot, slightly deeper nose of wet basement, lime and carroway. Spicy but kinda hollow, OK mouthfeel but just a bit underwhelming and beat up, not much oak character to speak of until the very last sips. It’s not as good as some other "regular" pannepots I’ve had...

C&PLYFOTD: 2005 bottle, courtesy TheCheeseMan. Caramel red pour, thin lacing and a white head. Slightly tart nose, cherries, hazy chocolate, licorice, honey, and just a shit-ton of spices. Rich brown sugar flavors, caramel and chocolate, very dry sexy tartness throughout. Very rich. Full-bodied, very yummy, could drink for ages. Delicious.
