"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.

Bottle 2008 vintage. Bought this some time ago and have only just got around to drinking it. The wait was worth it. Dark brown with a small head.Lovely port like flavour with a gentle creaminess running through it. Amazingly smooth for its strength-wanted the bottle to last forever. Brilliant.

commonmac (1133) - 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 (658) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Grand Reserva 2010. Bottle@Tuulensuu, 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.

CacheManyHose (658) - HONG KONG - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle from Brewcraft, drank at home. Pours an opaque dark brown with thin fizzy beige head. Smells of dark fruits, plenty of figs, plum, apricot, moderately raisiny, bready malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, lots of warm booze, nice deep leathery note, tiny bit of mushroom, light stony/mineral bitterness, thick and aged with a plum/fig tartness. Taste is burnt roasted dark malt, sharp dried fruit tartness, lightly bitter herbalness, very sharp finish - a bit thin compared to the nose. Body is very smooth, a bit acidic, faintly chalky, dissipates delicately. Aroma is rich and complex, a bit raisiny. Big and boozy but still manages to be fine/delicate.

HKdIPA (744) - HONG KONG - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle from Brewcraft at home. Opaque dark cola brown with bubbly dissipating head. Aroma is sharp with boozy wood with vanilla, leather, and dry dark fruit. Aging definitely noticeable. Taste is sharp again, booze, dark fruit and raisin, some savoriness. Taste is complex but a bit too much maybe. Body is rich but slightly chalky. Big interesting beer but probably wouldnt get again.
