COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Rando7 (777) - Iowa, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Very nice beer. Bottle pour to Trappist glass gives purplish brown color with thin tan head hat disappears quickly. nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruits. Taste raisins, plums, Belgian yeasts, spices, sugar, alcohol. Well balanced. palate creamy and slightly thick with clean fruity finish. Nice alcohol burn on the finish. I didnít notice the oak so much. Overall a really good beer. A different taste than the regular Pannepot but I canít say itís necessarily superior.

33 cl bottle, 2008 vintage. Pours dark brown with red notes. Tan head disappears fast. Nose is liquorice, chocolate and some woody notes. The oak is very present in the taste, with some tart/lactic flavours. Pleasant full body, very slick. Finish is boozy, some mild bitterness but overall very satisfying.

í08 bottle from Rando7. Not a lot hits me right away in the aroma. Itís airy; wet barrel notes, dark fruit, brown sugar and some alcohol fumes sneaking in there. It begins to open up a little bit as it breathes with more of the dark fruit coming through. Dark brown pour with a thin frothy head staying on top for good. Rich dark fruity flavors consising of prunes, plums, raisins and dates. Thereís a slight cherry tart in there but it stays very much in the background. Plenty of dried fruit sweetness. The oak, and some vanilla shows too, smooths this out and adds complexity. Thereís some soothing alcohol in the finish with the addition of spices that tastes like it belongs. Excellent beer. Whether itís better than the regular Pannepot or not, thatís a tough call.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Bottle. A - Very dark brown/black cola color with a large, extraordinarily creamy, sticky, frothy beige head. Good retention that settles into a nice layer of creamy, sticky lace. S - Lots of dark fruit with raisin, date, plum, and cherry aroma. Good amount of dark, caramel malt and molasses/slightly burnt brown sugar. Hints of chocolate and some oaky/vanilla aroma along with a strong spiced aroma and some yeast. T - Similar to the nose with a good mixture of sweet malt and dark fruit with a good amount oak and spice. These make a good combination of all different taste. Molasses, caramel, and hints of chocolate come out with the malt. Similar dark fruit to the nose combines sweet and slightly tart flavor. Good amount of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and coriander are present. Slight oak and vanilla undertones are present throughout. No overly strong but definitely provide another layer of flavor. Very well balanced and complex beer. M - Medium body with a good amount of carbonation. Extremely smooth and creamy with a rich silky feel. D - Very easy to drink with the smooth and creamy body and the nice balance and complexity. Really makes me want to keep drinking this. Notes: Vintage 2007. Incredibly complex, yet very well balanced. Oak flavors arenít overly strong, but definitely present and make a great difference. Really great beer, recommended.

Nickls (2227) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Bottle. 2007 on the label. Deep, dark, ruby brown color with a lightly tan/dark beige head. Dark, sweet fruit aromas but has a lot of citrus present as well, some vanilla, and the oak really comes through in the last inhale, comes together in complete bliss. Canít find the alcohol in the aroma at all. Not nearly as sweet in the taste as suggested in the aroma, toffee, some darker malt notes, bit earthy, rich, touch of sweetness, but quite a dry finish. Woody at the end as well. Medium body, quite lush and a bit slick with subtle carbonation. I hadnít quite expected to be as taken with this brew as I have been. Just fantastic.

Bottle. Pours deep dark brown with a beige head. Big plummy/dark fruity aroma, with some solid woody notes and spices. The flavor has an excellent integration of oak and dark fruity sweetness. Earthy and spicy notes lie underneath. Very good, and certainley deserving of itís spot in the top 50.
