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.

Pours a dark red with a big white head. Aroma of oak, caramel and some spice. Sweetness balanced with oak and lots of alcohol. Similar to the original but a bit sweeter. Still a nice beer

BelgiskOlklub (887) - Viby J, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2008
Bottle 75 cl. shared with my self - delicious. Perfect large creamy light brown head with excellent lacing. Lightly cloudy dark brown body. Heavy malt aroma of caramel and grain, oak barrels, heavy alcohol and light hops, brown sugar and spiced - coriander? Full creamy body and soft carbonation. Heavy sweet flavor and light bitter. A great beer.

An old rating i finally got to entering. Aroma was a little oaky, malty, belgian yeast. A lighter body than the regular pannepot but overall not as good as the regular. Still a great beer.

Dark chestnut color with a rocky big head, maybe exaggerated carbonation. Aroma of malt, caramel, some spices and light raisins, woody and sweet. Full bodied, with a powerful caramel flavor, quite sweet, with some woody touch that makes it more complex, and the alcohol is well hidden. Some sweet liquorice is evident mostly at the end. Excellent.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Reddish brown color with a beige head and good retention. Aromas of clove, cinnamon, strawberries, and figs. Tastes of caramel, spices, dark fruits, and apples. Unfortunately the taste is also a bit metallic, so Iíll take away some for that. Medium body and carbonation. An enjoyable beer, and without the metallic tastes to it, would be much better.

This tasted great. Iím curious how long you can keepthis beer. I just drunk the vintage 2005. 31-05-2008. Indeed a bit of a oak flavour. Perhaps i buy a few and keep them to try them every year.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2008 In short: A big heavy sweet candy in a bottle. Superb.
How: Bottle 750ml, shared by tertons with sunevdj and I. Drank about 1 year after the beer release. Thanks a lot Nelson!!!
The look: Cloudy light brownish body with a long-lasting medium off-white head
In long: Just like the regular Pannepot this one has a strong candy feeling. Crisp sweet red liquorice wrapped around dried fruits of all kinds. Big heavy trappist-like malted and yeasty body. Some spicy hard candies in there too. Barrel aging did change the taste but I didnít get much wood/barrel in the taste if any at all. Seemed crisper with a stronger spiciness sensation than the regular Pannepot. Also present was a little sweet Sherry wine flavour and a much welcomed light cherry sourness. Donít know which one I prefer, Iím rating this one higher right now but Iím due for a Pannepot re-rate since I like it more and more very time. Thanks again to Nelson for opening your cooler in exchange for floor-space at my hotel room. That was an excellent deal to me, usually people who offers beers like that donít ask to sleep on the floor, they ask to sleep in my bed and do dirty things to meÖ and I say yes :(

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 12, 2008
(on bottle)Deep, chestnutbrown/red, beige head. Caramelsweet, with some chocolate and a ton of maltinfluence. A very short carbonation and a very sweet, prunish taste. Not that balanced, very dominating dark fruits in finish, witch has a lack of carbonation, hence gets pretty watery. Exected a whole lot more from this baby.

pepsican (1438) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Thanks iowaherkeye for the opportunity to try this rare gem. Cola brown pour with a thick brown head. Aroma was very malty with some metal. Flavor was brown sugar, malty sweetness, metal, clove, vanilla, popcorn, butter, and alcohol. Finishes awkwardly sweet but with a mineral blood thing going on.
