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.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Enjoyed some time ago at Springlickers Fish Fry. 2005 bottle. A great improvement on an already great beer. Creamier than the regular but with the same sharp edge to the finish. Oak and yeast are there and some noticeable spices. Plenty of dark fruit and malt. Prunes and dark fruit with cream all over this fireside delight. Just a nice drink.

jfb (5565) - Freising, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2009
(bottle, 2007) pours the darkest clear ruby colour with a frothy, quickly-diminishing light brown head. complex but restrained aroma of different kinds of fruit, some cherries, strawberries and banana, oak, yeast, subtle hints of vanilla and cinnamon and very little alcohol. flavour is dark grainy toasted malts and yeast, with light notes of fruit and spices and a chewy, bready warming finish. medium to strong body with lively carbonation, alcohol is well-hidden.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Bottle at Springlslickers fish fry. Pours a murky dark amber with a tan head. Aroma of dessert breads and spice. Flavor of christmas spices, dark fruit, and caramel. You sense but not taste the alcohol on the finish. I picked up some metallic notes as well. I wish I took better notes on this, but I do know that I like the regular MUCH better.

2005 750ml bottle from pantanap. Thanks Kan!!! What I admired most about this was how it staved off oxidation for this many years. Another monument to Struise’s unbridled excellence. As far as the goods, I found them a full, balanced single note: raisins. Everywhere. The Struise house yeast saves the day as usual but I find 12 oz bottles of Pannepot to be crushingly complex in comparison. Just IMO.
