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.

2011 vintage. Beautifully complex brew. Liquor type aroma with figs, dark dried fruits, some spice. Same in the flavor but with rich dark maltiness and chocolate. Great beer to start out the new year!

Guruhso (529) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2016
Bottle. Vintage 2011. Dark brown with tan head. Heavy malty and light hoppy. Aroma of caramel, overriped fruits, dried fruits, figs, apples with wooden notes. Yesty esters. Complex. Starts heavy sweet turns light sour and finish light bitter with lingering alocholic notes. Nice Balanced. Medium body and juicy texture. Lively carbonation. A Great one

ninecats (522) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2016
Vintage 2010. Pours very dark brown, almost close to black, with a quickly dissipating dark brown head. Aroma is extremely rich, probably one of the richest Ive had with coffee, nuts, honey, vanilla, brown sugar, leaves, red berries, plums, alcohol, oak, oxidated notes. Taste is medium to fully sweet, with big malty flavours, dark dried fruit, blueberries, oakiness, alcohol. Along this sweet tone there is a slight sour note in between which balances it out nicely. Medium to big body, medium carbo, oily mouthfeel. This is close to perfection.

huineman (637) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 27, 2016
Vintage 2011. 33 cl bottle served at room temperature (18-20 C) in La Trappe chalice, which I think suits this ale better than Struise ones (imho). Pours darkest brown, almost tar black. Moka-coloured head lasts less than the blink of an eye. This beer has the strongest aromatic intensity I have ever come across in my experience: you can tell one scent from other being half metre away from the glass, honest. berries (blackberry, blackcurrant, bilberry), raisins, vanilla, black chocolate, tobacco, black pepper, soy sauce, coffee, shiitake mushrooms, leather... Honest! Not making this up at all, everything is there. Now, for the final act: taste is powerful, wide, still fizzy (more than five years have gone by). Oily mouthfeel, with an incredible umami and sour taste all through the tongue. No bitterness whatsoever, nor even in the long -very long finish. Amazing (and sure it will improve over time). Cannot wait to get the next one.

basjansen14 (197) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2016
Vintage 2011 Donker bruin tot een zwarte kleur. Aroma doet me denken aan een stout. Verder krijg ik drop uit het aroma. Smaak is een mix tussen een stout en quadrupel. Smaak ebt snel weg na je hem doorslikt.

ALIBALI (1434) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2016
Eines der wundervollsten und zugleich gtternahen Getrnke, welches jemals meinen Gaumen veredeln durfte. Unfassbar!!! So sollte Whisky schmecken. Holzig, beerig und von einer elegant samtigen Textur begleitet, nimmt der unwiderstehlich komplexe Strong Barrel Aged Wahn seinen Lauf. Man mchte kistenweise von dieser, spter wahnwitzig kirschigen, Versuchung erheischen und einlagern. Das Finale ist unendlich hopfig, dabei klar wrmend alkoholisch und malzig verspielt. Yeah!!! Sie extreme Sure des Originals wurde formvollendet vergentlemaned. 0,33/ca.4. Bottle. Finestbelgianbeer Webshop. Vintage 2011. Am besten ungesudet vernaschen... 😁.

jamaty (2079) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 14, 2016
Vintage 2011. Negra opaca, espuma beige, efervescente, que desaparece al instante, dejando cerco. Aroma licrico, madera, y a chicle. En boca tiene un paso moderadamente ligero, con gas presente. Compleja de sabor, coac, chocolate, frutos secos, frutas rojas, madera. Gran cuerpo, muy redondo y licrico. Final calrico, alcohlico.
