The Pannepot Reserva was an idea from my brew colleague 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.

Not quite as good as the standard Pannepot, which I found overrated. A bit abrasive and a bit of an "off" taste.

2012 vintage. This is so intensely Belgian-y that it should have been named "Tintin and the chocolate waffles". It should come in a box painted the tricolors of the Belgian flag. It should be served exclusively from that odd statue of the peeing boy. Someone should insert the word "Pannepot" into the Belgian national anthem. This is a wonderful, wildly complex beer that has chocolate notes (obviously -- it’s Belgian) and a lot of sweet fruit and raisin notes. With Euro 2016 coming up, I now have lots of reasons to drink to Belgium’s success.

Slautar (406) - Gdañsk, POLAND - MAY 3, 2016
Labeerynt 23.04.2016. W aromacie likier owocowy - przyjemna kompozycja suszonych śliwek, rodzynek, alkoholu i wanilii. W smaku owocowość z łagodnym winnym zacięciem. Gładkie i pełne a jednocześnie lekkie i pijalne. Bardzo dobre. Kolejny Belg przy którym miałem wrażenie, że mam do czynienia z autonomicznym rodzajem alkoholu.

jamestulloch (3032) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2016
Bottle (2012 vintage) from Cornelius. Dark brown body with no head or lacing. Aroma of leather, raisins, brown sugar and chocolate. Flavour of cherry, candi sugar and soy sauce. Thin to medium body with a slick texture. Light fizz. I expected much more - it’s not the nicest beer to look at, it’s surprisingly thin for the strength and it lacks the complexity of the finest Belgian beers.

Vignale (2994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2016
Flaska från Etre Gourmete. 2012 Vintage. Mahognyfärgade, relativt klar, fräsande skum som snart försvinner. Doft av söt och aningen syrlig torkad frukt. Plommon, russin, körsbär, fat, fruktig likör. Mums. Fantastiskt gott. Perfekt avvägda smaker. Rejäl kropp med en hel del alkoholvärme, torkad frukt, med mycket torkade körsbär, russin, fat, fikon, christmas pudding. Lätt den bästa Pannepot jag druckit. Parfest till Brie med hemlagad plommonsylt.

BlazerT (401) - POLAND - APR 22, 2016
Bottle. Trappist glass. Dark brown with tiny, light brown head, almost no head retention and lacing. Aroma is very complex - I’ll find here everything - dark fruits, roasted malts, some licorice, sherry, light banana, woody, raisins. Strong maltiness - mainly bread and dough. Taste is medium bitter and lightly sour, strong oaky flavours are present, everything is broken by nice malty sweetness. Medium to full body, oily texture, rather lively carbonation finish is sour-sweet and heavy malty. In general this is real flavours and aromas bomb, lots of dark fruits, roasted malts broken by oaky sourness and characteristics. This beer is definetly worth trying, even not very experienced beer geek will find here all above characteristics.

hawthorne00 (3281) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2016
UPDATED: APR 20, 2016 2012 version. Dark red with a tan head that fizzes away to nothing in seconds. Aroma of dried fruit, leather, strong bread, licorice, autumnal fruit, the forest floor. A bit Old Ale-ish, quite vinous. Chocolate and roasted flavours join the fruit and bread in the taste, which has a lot of malty depth but treads surprisingly lightly. Carbonation is fairly low. Warming in a slow, booming way - the alcohol is not disguised but is very well integrated. Wood and a slightly lean towards dry combine with subtle bitterness to finish. There’s a suggestion of other spices there too. Perhaps the next bottle will have a head. Great.
