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.

Dark brown with medium beige head. Vinious aroma with toffee, spices, overripe fruits and malt. Full body, sweet, overripe fruits and a warm finish from alcohol. Huge complexity. Not much room for improvement. Excellent!

egajdzis (5456) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Poured a hazy brown color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, caramel malts, oak, nuts, dried fruits, and some cherry. Taste of more caramel, light spices, vinous, with more cherry, vanilla, and light alcohol in the finish. The age in the barrel has really helped to subdue the intense spicing in regular Pannepot.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 [Bottle from ChristianScheffel, Odense Tasting.]
This is golden brew. Great look of dark brown pour with good off-white head with notes of oude, oak, vanilla, dried fruits, "old" yeast, spices such as nutmeg, complexity and indeed a world class brew.

Dedollewaitor (14202) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2007
Loud Pop! Expectations were high. Dark brown with a red hew & solid head. This is candy for grown ups. Malty, raisin & prune, spicy, nutmeg, alcohol, oak & a slight metallic edge. Full bodied. Soft palate. Very complex. Almost as good as the "regular" pannepot. Long end...

Some years ago Struise was rather unknown in Belgium. Within the last couple of years they have grown to be one of the best and the most innovative Belgian brewery. This beer shows why!
Hazy dark brown with a tall beige head that last. Powerful aroma of sweet malt, barrel, spices. Very complex and extremely inviting. Flavor is sweet with a lovely dryness from the barrel aging. Soft and smooth, with millions of subflavors. No doubt a world class brew, I can’t wait to taste the Grand Reserva!

Bottle @ ChristianScheffel. [thank you Christian!]
Wow! Pours a dark brown with slight ruby edges. Big fine beige creamy beige head. Aroma is fantasticly complex, vanilla comes as the first impression - oak in itself is difficult to discern. There are plums, raisins, alcohol and belgian sugars. Stunning creamy palate. Flavour is great - the wood enhances all factors in the beer. Vanilla is again very present, prunes, raisins, sugar, some chocolate. Brilliant!

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 I cannot thank sk8viking enough for sharing this fantastic beer! A true honour! The aroma is very complex, it has figs, prunes, wood, alcohol and a bit of vanilla. It poors a dark brown head. The flavor has a lot of figs, caramel, oak and vanilla - it’s a beer very dominated by the fruit. You can also taste the alcohol - it warms. A very well-balanced beer.

75cl bottle, with a BIG THANKS to sunevdj! Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights; sizable tan head and a good coat of lacing. Aroma is dark fruits, earthy yeast, light vanilla, and spice. Flavor is a big WOW, dark fruits, apple, and a well dialed in spiciness tempered well against a light oaky presence. Palate is creamy and smooth, full mouthfeel and light carbonation. This is one nice creation; thanks again Sune for the chance to try this!

Dark brown with a thick tan head. Fruity with notes of vanilla. Taste is full of chocolate, malt and some wood. full bodied with a bittersweet aftertaste.
