"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.

mathieuc (3632) - Qubec, Quebec, - JAN 1, 2013
2005 vintage (first ever I think). Brown brew as per bottle with a small white head that doesnt linger too long. Aroma is full of sweet candi syrup and almost no barrel notes (I would have thought it would be a barrel bomb but it isnt...). Mouthfeel is watery compared to the regular Pannepot and carbonation is low-medium which is nice. Taste is sweet with a sour edge. Flavors of molasse and again close to none Calvados notes. The sourness must come from the barrel though and maybe Calvados just doesnt blend well with this kind of brew. It is good and enjoyable, just not meeting my somewhat high expectations for a barrel aged Pannepot. Might be because it was bottled in 2007 too.

ABS (981) - Stokke, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2017
Dark brown body. Not that much head. Wineous and alcohol nose. Fruit, cherry, coffee, wine, liquorice flavour. Some bread. Quite bitter, with a lot of sweetness as well. Hint of sour. Thick, oily body. Soft carbonation. Good, but maybe a bit too much flavour from the barrels in my opinion.

datrael (372) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 22, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 Vintage 2011. W aromacie figi, rodzynki, fenole, śliwki suszone, ciemne owoce, drewno, nuty beczkowe. W wyglądzie brąz wpadający w czerń, piany brak. W smaku orzechy, śliwki, czekolada, kakao, ciemne owoce, czerwone owoce, słodkie, lekko kwaskowate, nuty drewniane, ktre z czasem zaczynają dominować. Pijalność całkiem niezła jak na moc tego piwa, szczypiące wysycenie, każdy łyk rozgrzewa. Dobre piwo, o wyraźnie beczkowym profilu

commonmac (1139) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle at Cambrinus in Bruges with commonshawn, rosskyle, samalito, and dubtully. 2012 edition. Quickly dissipating head on a deep, dark brown ale. Heavy cloudy nature. Nose is assertive and leads you to believe it?s big on alcohol. Dark fruit is very prevalent. Maybe a hint of chocolate. Taste has plenty of chocolate and a healthy dark fruit balance. Sweetness present. Mouthfeel is silky and smooth. Hard to find the alcohol which could prove dangerous. This is what Surly Darkness wishes it could be on its best day. Exceedingly drinkable and instantly makes me want another.

Turboninja (659) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Grand Reserva 2010. [email protected], Tampere, Finland. Medium/strong, soft aroma with dark fruits like plum and cherry, some licorice. Dark red color with no head. Strong, soft, balanced taste with raisin, cherry, some licorice. You really can taste the softness and maturity. Medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with plum. Medium/light body with medium carbonation. Overall, superb, almost too soft and matured which also affects negatively to its distinctive character.
