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.

750ml bottle shared courtesy of egajdzis. 2005 Vintage. Opened to a very lout and audible pop. Poured a medium to deeper reddish tinged brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of wood, dark fruits -raisins and plums-, caramel, and some earthiness. The wood really came out more and more as I spent time with this one. Tastes of wood, the same dark fruits, and vanilla. Alcohol content well hidden.

2006 vintage. Ok Im totally getting a wicked metallic flavor in this one. Not the first time Ive noticed this from struise. Great lively mouthfeel. Lots of subtle flavor going on as well. I cant get passed the metallic flavor, it really is turning me off.

Bottle shared by pineypower thanks a bunch for this retired gem Dean. Pours a deep dark brownish red with a huge frothy super long lasting light beige head. This beer left so much lace on my Double Bastard glass that I couldnt simply rinse it out but it needed a full washing before my next beer. Aroma of dark fruit...raisin plum prune black cherry..brown sugar..yeast..wood..and a touch of butterscotch. Palate was medium body with stronger carbonation and a touch of sourness on the finish. Flavor on this one was some dark fermenting fruit..mainly raisin and black cherry..slight alcohol and wood. Wow was this one nice and complex sort of like that movie Memento I still dont think I understand who did it.

2007 vintage tasted at the Kulminator in September 2008. Murky ruby red with thin white head. Aroma of nutmeg and allspice, maybe some vanilla. Full-bodied balanced malt, hops and spice - figs and dates, raisins, that vary throughout, Complex mix of flavors and a long bitter finish.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Pours out a dark and cloudy slightly reddish hued brown with a moderate to larger lacing off white head. Impressive aroma, nice earthy/oak notes with some dark dried fruit notes and a slight alcoholic note. Taste is very complex, dried dark fruit, mainly cherries, figs and some raisin go with some very nice earthy notes, oak and some slight vanilla with an earthy/very slightly alcoholic finish. Velvet- like mouthfeel. Very impressive beer, well worth the hefty price tag that came along with this one.

StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 Very nice brew. Better than I expected. Smells like pancakes and christmas sugar cookies. Dark brown with a thin head. Flavor is musky, dark, and woody. Light spice and an alchohol burn that I could do without. The wood and vanilla dominates as the beer warms up. Nice.

750, capped and corked. ’06. Thanks, Thewolf! Slightly hazy ruddied garnet. Loose, sudsy tan head. Big buttery caramel nose--very candy-like and pleasant. Creamy medium body. Butterscotch, toffee, cola, nuts and brown bread. Long mixed finish. Complex and interesting.

I tasted this beer before I got my account with ratebeer, so I can’t really remember all the flavors.
