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.

Bottle 75cl. Pours a nice brown/red color. Aroma is filled with vanilla,caramel,fudge,spice and lots of fruit. Taste is about the same as the aroma with some marzipan in there aswell. Great!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Brown colored beer with a firm tan head. Rockin aroma showcases the intricate complexities of Pannepot, with added notes of vanilla, red burgundy and a very light toasted wood. Nose is awesome. Flavor is mildly disappointing. The barrel seemed to mellow and tame the original Pannepot, but it seemed to lose a bit of its flavor intensity and concentration. Doesnt quite have the depth of flavor or body of regular Pannepot. That being said, still a killer brew.

Barrel aged Pannepot all I can say is WOW.The smoothness that the barrel aging adds is over the top and if there were any edges on Pannepot. Which I never detected any Panny by itself is a World Class brew. The barrel aging adds a whole new depth to this Struise masterpiece. All the wonderfull flavors from the Pannepot the carmel vanilla spice smoothness and the added aroma of the oak aging truly push this beer into a aficionados cellar collection to be savored. My highest praise . A true masterpiece. Its METAL

<i><b>my beer #5000!</b>; from crackedkettle.com</i> - pours a hazy ruby-brown colour under a foamy and persistant beige head; nice lace leaved on the side of the glass; vinous, very complex nose showing aromas of nut, marzipan, bread, pear, vanilla and cognac; smooth mouthfeel with a solid malt body, subtle and regualr carbonation; the quite high sweetness is nicely balanced by some late sourness and bitterness; long aftertaste of overripe fruits, caramel, wood and a deep warming alcohol touch - a divine and hugely complex brew

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.
