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.

A huge thanks to tronraner for offering up the beer of the day. Aroma is deep brown sugar with a clinging sweet fruitiness that is amazing. A deep brown pour with a creamy tan head and lace. Dark fruit flavor with molasses and a hint of warmth. Just a bit too foamy for me is all that kept this from going through the roof. thanks again joe!

2005 Bottle sample from STLWill (Thanks!) Dark brown pour, medium carbonation and a wonderful plum and spice aroma. Flavor was intense spice, clove, pepper, brown sugar, raisins and plenty of effervesence. Very good beer, I can only hope to try this again sometime.

[Bottle] shared by STLWill. Pours a clear deep brown with a large beige head. Aroma is amazingly rich with lots of raisins, tons of brown sugar, cinnamon, clove, and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet, slightly tart, oaky, raisins and brown sugar, and a touch of alcohol. Phenomenal beer, and one I’ve been looking to try for a while now.

Butters (3898) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Sampled at Springslicker’s Fish Fry ’09. 2005 vintage. Clearish brown pour with big tan head and good lacing. Stellar aroma. Sweet, big and malty. Just the smallest noticeable twinge of alcohol. This was absolutely delicious. I would love to get my hands on another sample.

750ml Bottle at C&P Throwdown courtesy of Cheeseman. 05 Vintage. Pours a muddy brown with some reddish highlights and thick big long lasting tan head. Huge nose has plum, raisin, fig but also some heavy wood and slight sour notes. Taste is moderately spicy up front with a sweet chewy caramel middle with dark chocolate covered raisins. Finishes lightly sour with lingering notes of vanilla, chocolate, caramel and brown sugar. Super complex, super amazing. Pannepot is amazing in its own right but this is just a bit better, the slight sourness sets it apart from its normal version.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Its amazing!!! I received this bottle from by beer director....I cant thank her enough for this one. Pours a dark brown with some red hues when held up to light. Beautiful tan colored head with light lacing. I don’t know if can get more complex than this. Aromas of apple, plum and fig swirl from the glass with a light oakiness. Taste is unreal...apple, plums,vanilla, caramel nutmeg, clove blend with a caramel and coffee maltiness.

TrefwoordPunk (818) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2009 Bottle 33 cl. Pours a very dark reddish brown with a small tan head and an intense aroma of ripe fruits (cherries, plums, grapes), caramel, sweet malts, sweet chocolate, honey, liquorice and some spices. The flavor is sweet with more sour notes coming in later on. Notes of toffee, ripe plum, cherries and grapes, oak, candy sugar, cognac, whiskey, brown chocolate and yeast. A long, partly bitter, but more sweet and whiskey-like finish. A great beer!

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - APR 27, 2009
Bottled sample, thanks to Todeon. Pours a red brown color with a nice light brown head. Very nice fruity aroma with some oak and vanilla notes, spices and somewhat a little bit of funk. Flavour is about the same, both sweet and acidic/tart and fruity with some nice gingerbread notes, oak, citrus and spices. Filling in the mouth, pretty smooth. Really nice.

750 mL bottle at the ’09 Fish Fry. Pours dark red brown with a large beige head. The aroma is amazing: raisin, yeast, anise, graham crackers, oak, rum, brown sugar, clove, dark fruit, zest. It smells so good it took me several minutes to take my nose out of the glass to take a sip. The flavor is sweetish at first with raisin, rum, brown sugar, and some sticky prune juice notes. But through the mouth it picks up a faint tartness that cuts the sweetness beautifully. A distinct sharp oak quality develops as well and really does bring the flavors together. The finish and aftertaste are dry and just a touch spicy with residual oakiness lingering far into the dry-ish aftertaste. Very complex and perfectly balanced. This beer is amazing. I want more!
