The Pannepot Reserva was an idea from my brew colleague Carlo who wanted to age Pannepot in genuine French oak barrels (barrique 225 liters). We have brewed 90HL at the end of 2005 which has been aging on oak ever since (14 months). 30 Hl was bottled Tuesday 8th May 2007. 60Hl has been transferred now to second hand calvados oak vessels and will be bottled again early autumn 2007, we will name that batch Pannepot Grand Reserva. As quality and results rule at Struise, the Reserva was already brewed again and aging on oak.

2012 Zwart bier met weinig schuim wat snel wegzakt. Smaak is krachtig, zoet en fruitig met iets van kersen, zoethout en pruimen.

12 vintage - Pours dark brown with brown hue and tan head. Nose is caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits. Taste is dates, figs, cola, chocolate. This is an example of why I dont drink Belgian strong ales made in America.

nutjes (582) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - DEC 22, 2016
33cl-fles van bij Tabac&Co - Palais des bires te Dottenijs. U: Zwart met een donkerbruine schuimkraag die helemaal wegzakt. Ziet eruit als een glas cola na enkele minuten. G: Vineus, hout, gerooserde mout en gedroogd fruit. S: Zoet met een stevige moutbitterheid. Zeer veel vineuse toetsen in de smaak (voor mijn smaak mocht dit wat minder), eik en gedroogd rood fruit. Naar mijn smaak de minste uit de Pannepot-serie. M: Volmondig, licht sticky en medium carbonatie.

SimonBlok (395) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2016
33cl bottle bought at De Roemer, Groningen. Appearance: dark brown with fairly big beige head. Head isnt very persistent. Aroma: Oak, vanilla, butterscotch, caramel, raisins, port, cocos. Taste: high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of vanilla, oak, chocolate, cocos, dried red fruits, brown sugar. Alcohol is pretty well hidden. Palate: full bodied, oily texture and fizzy carbonation. Fantastic!

chromeotaphor (157) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2016
Caramel rietsuiker aroma. Knapperig sprankelend met een caramel kleurig schuimkraag die snel weg trekt. De perfecte combinatie! Sprankelend in de mond prikkelend in de afdrond diep en complex met hinten van port, caramel, hout, kersen, zurig. Een prachtig mooi samengeweven complex geheel dat lekker lang plakkend in je keel blijft hangen (bijna hoestdrank achtig).

Mishnok (187) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2016
From 330ml bottle. Pours dark brown, little head despite being quite dizzy at first. Aroma is sweet winter fruits and malts. Tastes of prune, dandelion and burdock, port, oak and sweet caramel. Quite a complex and lasting finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kauge (1740) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2016
2012 from Uba ja Humal in Tallinn (was around 6-8 euros). Pours reddish brown with initially big yellowish beige head that fizzes away leaving nearly nothing. But damn, the aroma. Superb... dark baked and dried fruits... figs and dates and apples, apple skin and caramelised sugar, and even a bit of chocolate, slight vinegary notes, port wine, wood and raisins soaked in wine... so nuanced! Tastes very sweet, fermented fruits (the usual suspects, plus a bit of old strawberries), caramelly notes (almost burnt caramel), toffee somewhat, woody and tanninic dryish in the finish. Fizzy but fine carbonation, medium body, excellent drinkability and covered alcohol - theres only a nice soothing warmth after downing half. Wonderful stuff, although falls short of mindblowing... I guess for me its pretty much on par with the rest of the best strong Belgians Ive had.

yourilevesque (1651) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2016
Vintage 2012. Robe brune bien sombre et mousse qui en gush aucunement, Dieu en soit lou! Armes de figues confites, de dattes, dpices sches, de clou de girofle et de muscade rpe. Je sens, malgr lintensit des armes, que le temps a fait son oeuvre. En bouche le corps a certainement perdu de sa complexit car le liquide est ici plutt mince. Saveurs de raisin sch et de fruits confits mais sans relle profondeur. Il me faudra certainement dguster cette bire nouveau lorsque frache car cette version vieillie de bientt 5 ans a certainement connu des jours glorieux.
