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.

Thanks to olso2116 for sharing this treat! I had been rating for about a month when I had this beer, so my notes were a bit skeletal. The beer was hazy dark brown with an ample amount of tan head. The aroma was complex, with some spices, mild sweet fruit, and alcohol. The flavor was similar, but I also picked up on some mild oaky sourness, along with something that I couldnít quite put my finger on... It might have been cardamom. Definitely would like to try again.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2008 2006 dark brown with creamy beige head Aroma complex, vanila, slight fruitiness, The flavor also has a lot going on. Sweetness of a caramal, slight woodiness and fruitiness. Very flavorful beer. One to sit and savour. Alcohol provides a warming sensation but doesnít disruspt the taste. Very nice

750mL bottle, thanks to my cousin (ggaughan). Poured deep chestnut colored, with a huge, frothy tan head and active carbonation. Earthy, herbal aroma with anise, oak, ginger, yeast, and dark fruit. Flavor of dried fruit, herbs, spice, oak, nuts, and cocoa. Warming alcohol in the finish. Really nice beer, I canít wait to try it again alongside the other Pannepots (and hopefully the Grand Reserva as well).

Stine (1574) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 Poured from a 750 ml bottle; vintage 2006, thanks to Zac. Mahogany hued and skinned with a thin rim of beige. Aroma is very deep; buttery brandy, vanilla, banana, chocolate, and caramel; hints of bubblegum and plenty of extraneous sweetness and rum like alcohol. Flavor is both zesty and rich, with a lovely balance of honey, peppermint, cocoa, honey, and golden fruit. Slightly sandy, with hints of cherry cola, licorice, brown spices, and tropical vinousness. Canned peaches. Layers unfold at a slow, leisurely speed. Chocolate. Hazelnuts. Red apple. Delicate and bold. Palate is brisk but full in body; slightly sour, and mildly acidic. Finish is vinous and slightly tart, with raspberry, pear, cherry, and chocolate; nut skins, and some alcohol. Sticky and crisp at the same time, and thoroughly generous in the mouth. Beautiful and refined; deep as the universe.

750ml bottle generously shared by hellomynameis. Lots of candied fruit on the nose. Brown sugar. Alcohol, but not in a bad way. Some light, nutty sherry notes. A touch of cinnamon and ginger. Spicy yeast with just a touch of moist oak. Pours thick, dark copper with rich amber highlights topped off by a thin khaki head. Alcohol soaked figs and dates initially on the tongue. Plenty of yeasty spice, brown sugar, wood. Quite tasty, but thereís an odd copper note that I canít quite shake. Light toasted bread. Creamy on the tongue. Lush and silky mouthfeel. Hmmm. Certainly a beer to make me think. Thanks Zac

Dark brown with a thin tan head made up of very fine bubbles. I hated the regular version because it was overly sweet but the aging seems to have made this a bit better and milder. Still sugary in the aroma with some molasses. Flavour is subtle but has quite a bit going on, many different spices present themselves with some more candi sugar and sweetness. Finishes with a bit of alcohol and some slight bitterness.

3rd Annual Woodshop Tasting, 3/1/08. Thanks John for bringing the 750ml. Surprisingly, the barrel influence seems to dumb down the original for the worse. It mellows out the normally intense and deliciuos flavor. A notch above the grand, but a notch below the normal Pannepot for me. Donít get me wrong, itís still great!

Tasted at 2008 Woodshop hosted by cquiroga. Bottle from ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! Strong carbonation, which dulls the flavors a little. Less sweet than the Grand Reserva. Tried side by side with the Pannepot, Panneput, and Pannepot Reserva. I like the Grand the best, but they are extremely similar, so the ratings are the same.
