COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

On tap at ZBF. Hazy dark brown and very creamy white to beige foam. Aroma is deep and complex. Wood, dark malts, candi sugar, fruits like figgs and dry raisins, cognac and nuts. Taste is generous and also super complex. The beer is very malty, nutty and in the finish there is a crisp dryness of wood tannins. Carlo, this is the best beer so far brewed by Struise.

On tap at Struise farm. Intens deep brown, almost black beer with brown reddish reflections and a nice big Struise head. Foam is beige with hints of mocca and it stays there for ever. Nose is very smooth and super complex. It is malty, roasty, woody, fruity, soft sugary and slightly spiced. Taste is so smooth and so complex without being overdone. Again tons of malt, candy sugar, spices, fruits like prunes and figgs but also hints of frech grapes. Mouthfeeling is soft, smooth and silky. Afthertaste is slight coffee like, sweet-malty, complex fruity and so well in balance. Woohaa ! Great job guys.

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.

This is an incredible beer. The aroma has light alcohol, but much more. There is sweet fruit, cinnamon, malt sweetness, yeast, and oak, as well as some brown sugar and light spices I can’t identify. It has a very dark brown appearance, and is very thick like syrup, the palate is quite exceptional. The flavor has a little oak, and this is just a hair drier than the regular Pannepot. There is also a light roasted character. Very much like a malty Trappist ale, comparable to Achel or Westvleteren in the malt character. There are light spices, and I do perceive the cardamom now that I know it is there. It takes a long time just to drink a little bit of this, as it is very thick, heavy, smooth, and complex. My first 5.0. Thanks to olso2116 for sharing.

Dark reddish brown beer, nice lacing once again. Lovely sweet, complex and vinous aroma, the alcohol is more present here than in the original but it smells like heaven itself. So malty, spicy, fruity, now with some nice wooden notes mixed in rather than distracting the whole like in Pannepot Grand reserva. So soft yet very warming, you can feel the alcohol mostly when it has already gone down your throat. Superb beer, at least as good as the regular pannepot which makes it a perfect beer or perfect beer plus for me. Got to get more of this, If I had to drink only one beer for the rest of my life it would be this one. Still gay for Pannepot, have to five the bastard and shut up now before someone gets annoyed with me.

Dark brown in colour, fine beige mousse. Aroma is mega complex, it smells like porto mixed with the famous westvleteren 12. This beer makes me happy ! And I am happy because I could buy some of the last 2006 bottles at the Struise shop. The taste of this beers is maibe the best i have ever tasted. It is rich and elegant, spicey, malty and soft. aftertaste is refined and complex a true masterpiece.

Bottle, 2009. Dark brown with a tan head. Brown sugar, raisins, plum, vanilla, wood, coffee, and dark chocolate. Phenomenal. My favourite from De Struise!

Brown with a beige head. A superb body. Aroma of belgian candi sugar, bread, toast, herbs, and wood. Quite similar to Chimay Blue but with a terrific woody touch from the oak aging that renders it superior.
