COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Nose is dried fruit, earthy, musty attic, woody, vanilla, minerals, mossy tree trunks, leather, tobacco, frankincense. Mouth is medium bodied, sweetness up front, prunes, leather, tobacco, grass, mushrooms, red clay. Complex.

Botella. Presencia marron oscuro opaco con corona beige persistente y compacta. Carbonatacion baja. Aroma a caramelo, algo de cafe, y licor. En boca entra ligeramente dulce caramelosa con notas de cafe y frutos seco dando paso a intenso alcohol cafetoso y ligeramente amargo. Buenisima

leghorn99 (201) - Livorno, ITALY - MAY 14, 2016
Un marrone mogano intenso, schiuma fine e cremosa che č un piacere vederla, aroma intensamente maltato e delicatamente fruttato, ammorbidito da una vaniglia sontuosa e da un legnoso gentile. Corpo elegantemente strutturato, correttamente carbonato, nel quale il malto e le spezie la fanno da padroni. Non finisce mai, regalando fino in fondo sfumature preziose e delicate (coriandolo, legno, alcool, frutta rossa, caffč …).

mikkopen (1013) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2016
330 ml bottle (2012). Dark brown colour, thin tan head. Sweetish aroma of dried fruits, banana, vanilla, notes of caramel and wood. The flavour is sweetish fruity, with berries, banana, raisins, dried dark fruits, vanilla notes. A little alcohol warmth in the finish. Complex, balanced, delicious.

Bière brune à la robe sombre, elle présente une mousse crémeuse persistante. Au nez, on retrouve des senteurs chocolaté et avec de faibles notes de café . En bouche, on assiste à une explosion de saveurs : vanille, épices et fruits secs.

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 (428) - Gdańsk, 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 (3083) - 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.
