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, thanks to puzzl. Murky light brown pour. Aroma is really malty, candy sugar, dark fruit, bubblegum. Flavor is also rich and sweet; brown sugar, candy sugar, some dark fruit / plum. The oak is barely noticable.

Big thanks to puzzl for sharing this one. Dark brown beer, thin tan head. Hazy, rich and very inviting. Incredible nose, rich Belgian malt, plums and sweet toasted oak. Soft vanilla character against the sweet fruitiness of the malts and the yeast. The tropical fruitiness that is so prominent in the regular pannepot is much more subdued here, with that component replaced by rich oaky sweetness. Toast, heavy caramel and a hint of molasses. Light licorice herbal character. Man, this is tasty stuff.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2008 Bottle thanks to Andy. Doesn’t hold its head as well as other Pannepots. Flavor is mostly applesauce. There’s a bit of Belgian yeast taste but the best part of this beer is the delicate mouthfeel.

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Very mellow and smooth at first with flavors of malt, Annis, plums, and oak that grow strong, very rapidly. Somewhat carbonated with a slight numbing in the mouth from the alcohol. Overall, a very good find.

sunevdj (3130) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy dark brown with a brown head.Quite sweet with aromas of molasses and dates. Strong alcohol notes. Medium to ful lbodied with a lively carbonation. Good, but not quite what I expected.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle @ Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Pours a deep cola color with a brown head. Aroma of cinnamon mixed with dark fruit and other spices. Taste is cinnamon and dark fruit up front with a sweet finish and some woody characteristics as well. This is an absolutely wonderful beer, and just as fantastic as the regular Pannepot. I wish this was more readily available in the USA, but this is just a treasure.

Stew41 (1724) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2008
Interesting. The abv of 10% is far more noticable that the the other 2 Pannepot beers, Relatively simpled and subdued early before a kick of aniseed, big malts and alcohol.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a hazy reddish brown colour witha big and firm tan-coloured foam. Black cherries, licorice, brown sugar, wood, alcohol, vanilla, nuts and sourish red berries in the deep aroma. Full flavour of wood, alcohol, sweet licorice, nuts, coconut and cherries. Full-bodied. Long warming finish wood, vanilla, nuts, alcohol, dates and figs. Really tasty and classy but I prefer the regular version, though.

Bottle cbus-x graciously shared by moejuck, thanks again Joe! DIrty brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of light oak, booze, light bready malt, candied fruits. Flavors of booze soaked fruits, wood, dry malt, light malt...fairly subtle flavors. Medium body...boozey/malty with a dry finish. Pretty nice, though I think I prefer regular Pannepot a bit better...feels like the the barrell againg muted everything a bit too much. It doesn’t change the fact that it is still damn good.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2007
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy mahogany body with a thick dense beige head. A complex aroma of toffee, chocolate, cookie dough, dates, figs, vanilla, roasted nuts, butterscotch, and a touch of anise. Flavor of figs, dates, cinnamon, dark caramel, roasted malts, coriander, and nutmeg with a dry finish.
