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.

Vintage 2010 from Belgian e-shop Dark black color with red hue at the side of the glass, thin, light brown head, medium lasting. Aroma of molasses, sweet caramel malts, spicy oak notes, some biscuit/bread crust too. Taste is sweet, dark malts, some spice, apple juice, molasses, hints of oak. Finish is light bitter from the roasted malts and just a hint of tannins (from oak or dark malts), lasting. Slightly dry, very low carbonation. Another excellent beer!

Reserva 2010 bottle to a tulip. Watching the Oscars 2015. Pannepot is a favorite and this version does not disappoint ... Dark fruit and spices with sweet toffee malts and an oakiness on the finish ... Exceptional.

tmoreau (2688) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Cellared 2008 11.2 oz. bottle poured to a goblet, displaying a rather clear, coppery brown color, with a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam that gradually diminished to a bubbly film & silky ring, leaving clingy dots & dashes of lacing on the glass. The nose was some roasted character, with a touch of cocoa, but mainly dark fruit as prune, cherry, concord grape, and raisin, with caramel sweetness, and a sherry-like scent. The flavor was malt sweetness, continued esters, a mellow amount of oaky & tanniny bitterness, a bit of tartness, and sherry-like alcohol whose warmth built slowly throughout the taste. Softly carbonated, but possessed a smooth & rich texture, and medium to full body. Aged very well as quite a long awaited treat!

Pannepot reserva 2010. Stappata la bottiglia rimango perplesso....ma appena messa nel bicchiere inizia lo spettacolo! Di color scuro, riflessi rubino, con schiuma beige cremosa, che si vedrà sparire non poco più di 2/3 minuti dopo. Al naso salgono sentori di frutta rossa e caramello. Al palato un esplosione di sapori, che con la sua leggera carbonizzazione, lo rende morbido ed elegante. Ad ogni sorso viene voglia di berne un altro....una meraviglia!

Batavi (37) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2015
Pannepot Reserva 2010, uitgeschonken in 33cl. De Struise bierglas. De kleur is net als bij de 'normale' Pannepot diep bruinzwart met een donker beige schuimkraag, die terugzakt tot een fijne roodbruine schuimring. De geur is intens: gebrande mout, koffie en gedroogd fruit. De smaak nadert de perfectie van bier, werkelijk ontzettend smaakvol. De smaken zijn als bij de 'normale' Pannepot, maar dan meer intens, vooral meer eikenhout. Schitterend zacht smaakpallet van geroosterde mout, koffie, karamel, specerijen, gedroogd fruit als rozijnen en dadels, kruidkoek, chocolade en eikenhout. Het mondgevoel is haast romig, door de densiteit en vrij lage carbonatie van het bier. De afdronk is lang licht houtig en zacht bitter door een mooie hop balans. De Pannepot Reserva is werkelijk het beste bier tot nu toe wat ik heb geproefd. De Reserva 2010 is nog iets complexer dan de reguliere Pannepot en een meesterlijke batch van de Struise brouwers. Een product waar België trots op kan zijn!
