"Vintage 2005"
Our PGR has aged for 24 months on oak barrels and has been bottled for the first time on the 27th of December 2007. The main difference with the Pannepot Reserva is that PGR matured the last ten months on Calvados oak barrels, adding extra complexity to the beer. We dedicate this beer as a tribute to Jeppe & Michael of lbutikken in Denmark. Those gentlemen were the first to discover our beers on an International basis back in 2004 and are responsable somehow for our beers being all over the globe since then. As a token of gratitude towards Jeppe & Michael, the first shipment of PGR was scheduled to lbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

2008 bottle very dark brown with a large tanned head. aroma is sweet, chocolate, raisin, dark brown sugar, some wine notes. taste is smooth and sweet with apple brandy. complex, spicy, with restrained (coffee) bitterness. cherries, chocolate and calvados oak are abundant. At a push, id take the standard pannepot for its smoother profile, but this is still fantastic (probably better than the reserva).

Caramel rietsuiker aroma. Knapperig sprankelend met een caramel kleurig schuimkraag die snel weg trekt. De wat zwaardere diepere pannepot combinatie! Sprankelend in de mond prikkelend in de afdronk diep en complex met hinten van cognac een gerookter bier. Een prachtig mooi samengeweven complex geheel dat minder lang als een de andere pannepotten blijft plakken. Voor mij persoonlijk zijn de reserva en de gewone pannepot beter. Maar ook dit blijft gewoonweg geniaal!

Bottled, 330ml, vintage 2005 from my Anniversary collection given by Sandra sourced by Fin, cheers all. Bordeaux wine colour with only slight head. This is really full on the palate, loads going on, initially there is a tartness, fruity with a hint of cherry also quite woody, tarry. The alcohol is well disguised within the beer, no rough edges, hints of sweeter caramel, smooth. A world class beer.

Vintage 2011. Net als de reguliere Pannepot heel erg lekker. Alleen had ik van deze nog iets extras verwacht. Ik kan echter niet veel verschil met de gewone Pannepot ontdekken en vind deze zelfs nog net iets minder uitgesproken.

2011 vintage. Bubblegum, dried figs, dried cherries, chocolate, caramel, oak, red apple, light star anise, light allspice/clove. Nice apple juiciness still present in the taste. A Belgian strong ale which has likely toned down some of its generous spiciness and yeastiness over time to present itself with utmost refinement. Reminiscent of a beautiful woman selecting the finest attire to attain the peak of her elegance.

2011 bottle purchased at Crafted Drafts. Pours clear reddish brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, banana, candied raisins, oak and spice. Malty and caramelly flavor giving way to spice and candied fruit before a light oak finish.
