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.

Pours a brownish/red with thin beige head which leaves an attractive lacing. Aroma very complex, herbal, tar, leather, vineous, some smoke, reminescent of aged brandy. In the mouth the same glorious sweet, sticky maltiness as in the "normal" Pannepot with tones of oak. pinewood, earth leaves, raisins. A balanced mellow finish. Glorious!!

Bottle of the ’08. Where the hell did this beer come from? It seems radically different from all the other pannepot variants I have had. Aroma has big fruit and flowers up front with very light vanilla and a hint of paper. The flavor is dried apples and peaches with a dry, yeasty finish. Weird for pannepot, but pretty nice all the same.

A: The pour is a dark amber color, perhaps we could call it mahogany with a fluffy tan head on top. S: There are lots of different dark fruit aromas here, perhaps some figs, plums, raisins, along with a non-dark fruit--pears. A lot of caramel malt, brown sugar, and a hint of bread. T: A mild spiciness followed by an intense dark, sweet fruitiness. Raisins, plums, figs, cherries, and brown sugar with a hint of alcohol and perhaps even a bit of oak. M: The body is medium to full with a very creamy and full level of carbonation. D: I like the regular Pannepot a fair amount and this is even better. A really fantastic beer and one that I would easily drink again.

2005 75cl bottle courtesy of ericandersnavy. Big thanks for sharing this one. Pours a deep, dark brown body topped with just a bit of off-white head. Aromas of dark fruits, figs, lightly spiced, raisins and caramelized candi sugars. Flavor follows the aromas and adds a hint of alcohol and stone fruits. Very smooth, medium mouthfeel with low carbonation. I’m glad I was able to share this great beer with an equally great Ratebeerian!!!!

asheft (2891) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2010
[bottle] Spiced aroma with some star anise, mocha, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Opaque black under a thin, light brown sheet that laces the glass. Flavour is sweet and smooth with some fruity spices up front that develop into gentle mocha and vanilla-butterscotch oak. After a few sips, the oak becomes really apparent, but it is well supported by the sweet and dark malts, though it is still a little dominant. Nice balance between bitterness, sweetness, and a little ethanol. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly warming, sweet coffee finish with some ethanol.

TheAlum (6812) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
750 ml bottle shared by drew. Pours a murky brownish pour, lighter edges, a decent tannish head that dies to a firm film, laces ok. Aromas are brown sugar, zesty Belgian spice, vanilla, faint dark fruit, a decent fruitiness underneath. Initial is a bit underbodied, fresh apple sauce and brown sugar, vanilla, faint honey, caramel, toffee, pear, light spiciness, mellow and smooth on the palate. Vanilla tannins from the oak are gentle yet flavorful. Medium bodied, finish is mellow sweetness, faint bitterness, mellow spice sticks to the palate. Very nice, solid Belgian, priviledge to have tried.
