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.

Rating 3,200. 330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the 1700/3200 rating thing. Vintage 2011. The pour is a darker brown with some light ruby shining through and a bubbly film of dark khaki colored head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is nice. There is a nice dark chocolate and fruitiness about it with a great maltiness and a sweet caramel. The oak is nice and present but the Calvados really balances it out. I really like this. The flavor is good as well. There is a strong dark caramel and fruitiness the oak is strong and present with a distinct brandy and light apple addition. The mouth feel is light and clean with a nice clsofter carbonation and a lingeringly fruity oak and brandy finish. This is really good. I like this one a lot better than the regular Reserva.

stekzwolowiny (23) - Czstochowa, POLAND - MAR 1, 2017
Vintage 2011 Barwa bardzo ciemnobrązowa, piana dość spora, szybko opada, w aromacie figi, śliwki, dębina, lekkie nuty czerwonego wina, nutki fenolowe, dojrzałe banany, przypalony karmel, dużo się dzieje. W smaku suszone owoce, dębina, leciutka kwaśność na finiszu, alkohol przyjemnie grzeje w gardło, wysycenie sporo, jak to w Belgii. Bardzo dobre piwo, ale nadal nie jestem fanem Belgii.

Gehbe (377) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown with a medium tan head. The complexity of this velvetty smooth aroma is undescribable. The spices and dried fruits and malts all blend into one invisible vortex of scents and flavors that sucks you in and in and in and... then you take another gulp. Truly amazing.

ABS (999) - 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 (389) - 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
