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.

Thanks to Struise Urbain for opening one of the last 75cl bottles for me and my wife. Great hazy brown beer with a super creamy and long lasting foam. Aroma is in the same line as the famous Westvleteren 12. Great malty nose, sweet bread, caramel, candi sugar, soft sweet spices, wood and some port caracteristics too. The taste is very smooth and so complex. Soft carbonation, nice bready and malty body. Spices and wood are nicely melted together. Afthertaste is complex and very very very tastef.ull. Thanks Urbain for this special treat.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2007 #100 (On tap at Zythos Beer Festival 2007). This was the beer that I was most excited to try at Zythos, and it didn’t disappoint. Aroma was similar to regular Pannepot, but with a very balanced oaky presence. The aroma was a little less overwhelmingly spicy and more balanced than Pannepot, a perfect 10. Flavor was also quite similar, but it appears that the alcohol presence increased quite significantly as a result of the oak aging. Flavors are sweet caramel malts, dark spices, oak, and slightly hot alcohol. If the alcohol wasn’t so present, this would have been my #1 rate to date. I really enjoyed this offering, and it was the highlight of my trip to Belgium.

(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Urbain & lachesis. Pours an unclear, dark brown with an orange tint and a smooth, creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, vinous aroma with lots of caramel, overripe fruit, some spiciness and a very distinct, warming alcohol. Very rich and full body with huge caramel accents, wood, brown sugar and overripe fruit. Very warming alcohol. 170507

As many of other raters have said, a huge thanks to carlo and Urbain for bringing this one to the beerfestival in Copenhagen, Denmark loves you and I’m sure you know it! The beer it self has a muddy reddish, brown colour with a beige head. Malty, dark fruit sweet aroma with spicy notes and hints of alcohol and wood. Smooth and wellbalanced vinous flavor with alcohol and wood notes. Great beer from a great brewery.

CBF07 sample from 75 cL bottle, placed on the RB table by the crazy Belgian brewers who drove alle Saturday to come to Copenhagen with this treat, cheers! Pours hazy deep brown with a huge light brown head. Aroma is wineous, roasted malt, dried fruit, raisins mainly. Flavour is soft malty sweet. Strong fruity and complex profile, really lovely blend. Alcohol makes a short appearance. Slight smoked note and soft malty caramel with a strong alcohol note in the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 75cl bottle at Copenhague beer festival 2007, ratebeer tasting with a lot of enthousiasts being present and lots of all round congrats for Struise bringing the Reserva up North. Pours a beautiful black brown beer with a little creamy head. Chocolate malty aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, light carbonated and dry. Much going on in the flavour, dark fruits, roasted malts, chocolate, hops and alcohol, some sourness present too. Fascinating and delicious. Long fruity and oak aftertaste. I did a rerate on this beer, having tasted 3 samples in the last two months, this are my average points

Københavnske Øldage 07. Thank you to the De Struise guys for letting me be one of those, who had this unique chance to taste these heaven sent drops... The color is deep red mahogany and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma is fantastic, harmonic and complex. I find notes of plum, raisin, dried fruits, berries, candy sugar, caramel and hints of chocolate. The flavour is impossible to describe, it’s very smooth and harmonic and fine, like velvet. And at the same time it has a unique depth. The dark, dried fruits like raisin and plum, berries, caramel, hints of chocolate are re-found in the flavour, where I also find a very well balanced sweetness, figs, hints of oak, citrus and a light, but perfect bitterness. The finish is very long, and like the rest of this beer, it’s very complex! 2189
