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.

fonefan (34404) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle @ Københavnske Øldage 2007 in Copenhagen. [HUGE thanks to the Struise guys for making this happen] Hazy dark amber color with a average frothy fair lacing mostly diminshing beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, moderate to heavy yeasty, very complex aroma of gum, wood, alcohol, vintage, oaky fruity. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, very nice and good balance. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. One off the very best beers ;o)) Please give me more of this stuff, it is brilliant ;o))

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Bottled at Københavnske Øldage. Cloudy dark brown, dense head. Intense arousing aroma of raspberry and wood. Earthy, soft and mild. There’s cherry and wood. Deep complex earthy buttery malt character. The oak barrel character is restrained, just adding complexity to an already complex beer. Instead it is driven by superb malt flavours and esters. Mild, soothing and fruity, Westvleteren 12 like, as I remember it from the first time I tried it. Ultrasuperb - one of the very best beers I’ve ever had the opportunity to try.

madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
Bottled. Dark brown red coloured. Light brown dense and impressive head. Ripe fruits like plums and prunes is mingeling with spices, light sweetness and a subtle sourness. Very complex and balanced. Flavour as well is on the ripe fruit side. Has some liqourice, plums, berries, spice, light caramel and again this balanced ying yang sourness/sweetness. Great. Is full bodied. Has a somewhat oaky fruity end with a nice touch of alcohol. Very very good. Yet another great brew from de Struise brewers. Thanks to Urbain and Carlo for bringing this to Denmark.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle @ Øl festivalen 2007 in Copenhagen. [HUGE thanks to the Struise guys for making this happen] A huge crowd of RateBeerians was gathered around three tables as the great stuff arrived directly from Belgium. The question was, could they surpass the already legendary Pannepot. Initial appearance was small creamy beige head that mostly diminished. Properly coursed by the oak aging as the regular Pannepot had a very foamy appearance. Still some good lacework was displayed. Colour was muddy dark brown. At first sniff the aroma appeared somewhat weak. Mostly because it was too cold. As it warmed up, an explosion of notes appeared. Especially the Oak and wood/vanilla aroma became evident. Also notes of apricot, caramel, liquorish, cinnamon, fruit, molasses, light chocolate, prune, spice, date, and soy sauce….yes the list goes on and on. Full bodied with an average carbonation and every so lightly warming alcoholic texture. Unbelievably well balanced flavour. The mouthful was just so round and creamy like. This goes down so smooth. The most incredible lingering sweet finish.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 Bottle, Olfestival. The Struise guys drove all night to get to the festival in time and brought some of this delicious Reserva bottles of the Pannepot. How grateful I am that they were there, and that I was there to taste it. Delicious combination of sweet double beer notes and dried fruits. Candy sugar, port wine, cask wood. Aroma is perfect. Lingering palate goes on and on. Please give me more of this stuff, its brilliant!! :-)
