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.

2008 version, 330ml bottle from Westlakeview liquors. Enjoyable but missing something from the original. . Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a bubbly off white head. Carbonation missing. Aroma of molasses, dark fruits, vanilla, pice crust, spices and almonds. Flavor of caramel, dark fruits, vanilla, nuts and toasted malt along with some spices and earthy notes. Slightly less enjoyable than the original, could be my palate has had hundreds of more beers to compare than the last one. Still a top notch brew. Love Struise brews!

It looks already great when you pour it out! The color makes the beer special (dark hazy brown). You can really taste the malt and the chocolaty taste afterwards. It has also hints of caramel, dried fruits and coffee. You should only drink this beer on special occasions!

Tasted at Belmont Station. This beer is very rich and fruity. There are hints of dried fruit like figs along with a nicespicy malty edge. The body is rich and this is an amazingly smooth beer for its strength. The finish is malty and fruity with spicy notes of baking spices and just a touch of hops. This is definitely a beer to sit down with and contemplate life. It would probably go great with chocolate or other desserts.

11.2oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spice, chocolate, roasted malts, and slight hoppiness. This is a great Belgian ale, and the oak flavor really comes in on the finish. The alcohol is not too strong, but you can tell it’s there. Definitely recommended.

2008 bottle. Dark red brown; shy head, in stark contrast to regular Pannepot. Fruitcake aroma, reminds me of des Rocs Brune. Taste - lots of residual sugars, rummy, hot and boozy. Fruitcake again. Woodier than regular Pannepot. Pretty much a completely different beer, still good, but not so unique.

Draft. Pours hazy brown with a small tan head. Flavor is caramel, dark fruit, cherries, apricot, oak barrel, vanilla. Very light and easy to drink, but less complex than the original. An excellent beer.

Pours hazy reddish brown with white head, thanks caleb! Aroma and flavor is complex, with notes of pepper, apricot, dark fruit, oak, vanilla, and some caramel. Sweet finish. Good, but I liked the original better.

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.
