COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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.

Maris (1408) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2016
From a 330ml bottle (2012 vintage) on 20/9/2016. Pours a murky dark brown with pretty much no head. The nose is fruity, with a good whiff oak a some vinous notes. Flavour wise its big and sweet, with plums, raisins, prunes, cherries and brown sugar, against a background of warming alcohol and oak. The texture is thick and slick, with soft carbonation. A complex, nicely balanced sipper.

Gote dans un petit verre Duvel 18cl.(partage avec mon Kittenbieer ...) Vintage 2011. Trs belle robe Brun opaque avec carbonatation intense et mousse crme. Le nez annonce dj un moment dexception : armes de prune et de raisin dans une complexit enthousiasmante. Le got ajoute des notes de vieil alcool et de Porto avec un parfait quilibre douceur/amertume. La finale est trs longue et renforce lharmonie qui se dgage de cette originale et dlicieuse bire. Une trs grande russite qui donne envie dy revenir!

sebletitje (9553) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2016
Bouteille 75cl, anno MMV. 11 ans de dage, et une belle volution en bouteille. Brune un peu acajou, col reste mi-pais avec une couleur beige et un lger filament dor au verre. Arme au nez fruit noir, pointe dpice avec un petit bouquet balsamique. Rtro est fin caramel, crystal avec ce bouquet belge niveau levure. Petite touche rappelant lanis arrive en rtro. Palais garde le mme caractre, profil marqu niveau balsamique avec une fine note oxyde. Rtro fruit noir alternant entre date, fige et pruneau. Lgre chaleur des 10% se fait prsente. Effervescence est bien l mme avec lage. Petite note aigrelette en fin de bouche mais sans incidence sur le caractre gnral de la bire. Malt, caramel et crystal, bois avec un petit ct cacao en poudre et encore ce fini rglisse/anis.

GoufCustom (1704) - HONG KONG - SEP 16, 2016


330 ml 2011 bottle bought at HK Brewcraft in Central.

Looks: Clear deep brownish black with a layer of dirt-like yeast sedimentsOne-quarter finger head with soapy light beige foam which fades in 40 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant rich dark malt, with strong caramel, toffee, rum, strong raisins, dark fruits, coffee, cream, cane sugar, nice oak barrel, cidery apples, strong Bel yeast and grass. Complex and nice!

Taste: Mid to strong sweet full dark malt, with fairly strong rum-like alcohol, liquorices, strong caramel, light toffee, dark fruits, floral, brown sugar, wood barrel, strong Bel yeast, spices, herbs, lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and grass. <pBody: Full body. Quite thick and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Wholesome dark maltyness in a somewhat watery but very slick background. Smooth and quite creamy. Nice rum booze set the tune, back with tasty oak barrel to showcase strong dark fruits, caramel, floral and brown sugar. Notable herbs and fair spices. Moderate lemon to round. Comfy and nice!

Hoppiness: Grass in nose. Floral, herbs, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is mostly liquorice for an abrupt, mid astringent sweet-malty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Nice sweet and fair liquor bitter to mouth.

Comments: Compares to the original Struise Pannepot, this one has the nice cidery oak barrel aroma and subtle, very well-presented rum and barrel taste, at the expense of rich maltyness and dark fruity characters. Its a level-up in some way, but not as mind-bending as I expected. Glad Ive tried this one, but I still preferred the rich Struise Pannepot original.

P.S.: A nice one to for my 1600th rating!
