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.

Svesse (6885) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2009
(Bottle, vintage 2006, purchased at Ölbutikken, Copenhagen) Dark brown colour with huge, frothy, pale brown head. Malty nose with dried fruit (prunes, raisins), dark rye bread, brown sugar and just a touch of wood. Slightly estery. Malty taste with dried fruit, figs, dates, ripe cherries, clove, dark bread, brown sugar and a hint of oak wood. Delicate but superb wood finishing makes it more mellow and rounded than the usual Pannepot (a lot to learn for many brewers). Full body, with smooth and rounded mouthfeel. Sweetish. Alcohol well integrated, comes through at the back of the palate in the finish. Excellent beer in lovely balance!

Thanks to TheCheeseman. I think this was a 2005 vintage. Pours a cloudy dark brown with some yeast chunks. Aroma of sweet dark fruits and some funk. Flavor is smooth and sweet with dark fruits and a little alcohol. Nice brew.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2009 Pours out black with lots of head. Very carbonated. Smells sweet, funky and a little tart. Taste is sweet, fruity, and some funk and wood. Smooth, sticky and mellow. Lots of flavors going on here. Great beer, more drinkable than expected.

Fin (8263) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2009
Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Belgium, consumed at Kemmel campsite 11-06-09 Pours dark chesnut brown with a light beige head. Big malty aroma with dark sticky fruits, dates, figs and some stewed fruits start to show, there is also some candy sugar showing. Taste is really smooth, sticky and quite sublime. This tastes like a wonderful dessert with alcohol soaked dark fruits, the dates and figs showing again in the mouth. I don’t really get the oakiness but I think that the ageing has definately smoothed out this wonderful beer. A7 A5 F8 P5 Ov16 4.1

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 17, 2009
Vintage 2007 from crackedkettle.com. Cork, marmite, apple, coconut, oak, salt and glue showing up in both nose and taste. Sweet. Malt accentuated. Full bodied. Lively carbonation. The characteristics which appear from the ageing are quite prominent. Very low bitterness. Sweet malty finish with hints of apple and huge amounts of spinach and apricot. Dissapointing.

Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours hazy brown with copper hues and tan head. The aroma is sweet with cherry compote, grape jam, sweet plums, dates and red candied apples. I get a bit of booze on a big draw. The taste is rich and fruity with a mild tart fruity candy note in the background. I get sugar coated raisins, ripe plums, ripe peaches and a sweet rich layer of cherry. It smooths out nicely into the finish. Brew brewed with yum!

beernbourbon (1380) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Pours murky brown with minimal tan head. Aroma is spicy, cloves, cinnamon, fruity, dates, raisins, wood pokes through, and a nice malty smoothness. Flavor is a bit more cohesive than aroma, nice malty sweetness up front with fruity and woody notes towards the end. Finish is velvety, woody and sweet. Subtle alcohol burn too. Very nice.

thanks kiefdog for the share. I’ve been wanting to try this for a while now. POurs a murky brown. Aroma is sweet with tons of things going on. Some rich spices, malt sweetness, ripe dark fruits, semi sweet chocolate. Flavors are much of the same with some barnyard funk, rich malts, sweet sugars, spicy yeast notes. Bready, raisins, more spices, booze. Wonderfully complex beer in every way. I NEED more.
