COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beautiful clear brown with hints of red and a small tan head. Big aroma of toffee apples, cherries, dried fruits, apple juice and some alcohol that disturbs me a bit. Flavours are very smooth with caramel, oak, alcohol, grapes and almonds, but they are a bit thin. Ends rather dry but is smooth all the way, like pouring silk down the throat. If the flavours were a bit bolder and with less alcohol in the aroma, this would be an absolute top beer.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Beautiful Carmel aroma, thin head. Explosive smooth Carmel and malt aroma. Understated flavor, smooth and sour, some alcohol, nice, light bitter finish. Very good but not worth the price for me.

YUM YUM YUM YUM. Treat to try this one. Big caramel filled nose. Spices, nuts, toffee, tender hints of chocolate, and Belgiany bread and malts take up the flavors on this. The finish ends with a pleasant, yet light, dip into an oak filled barrel. Damn good stuff.

Pours a hazy dark brown with a couple yeast floaties that sneaked their way in to party and a 2 finger, creamy beige head that fades to a thick skim after a couple of minutes and holds pretty well there for the rest of the glass leaving some lacing as I go. Aroma is dark fruit, dates, chocolate, light toast oak notes, a touch of alcohol, sweet bread spice, dark caramel, licorice and a little pine sap, not really in a hoppy way though. Flavor is big on dark fruit, chocolate, sweet white bread crust, dates, woody oak notes, sweet cherries, light fusel notes and dark caramel. Toward the finish comes earth and last years dry leaves. As it warms coffee and more dark fruit comes out along with slightly stronger fusel notes, no enough to be off putting, but they are somewhat noticeable. Palate is medium-heavy and creamy on the entry with an off dry finish and light, velvety carbonation. It never really feels too far toward any extreme in the range of mouthfeel description. Really good beer, one to savor and contemplate, but also one that would be dangerously easy to put down too many of at 10%. If you can afford to put down too many of a beer that costs $8 for a 330ml bottle, that is.

Scopey (13330) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2011
2008 bottle at Schraevenacker. It pours darkest brown, with a large, long-lasting beige head and fine carbonation. The nose is yeast, bread, pear, gooseberry, date, prune, fig, cherry, caramel and clove. The taste is full of sticky dark fruit: fig, plum, prune, date, raisin, blackcurrant and sultana. There is also brown sugar, caramel, milk chocolate, clove, wood and pleasant alcohol warmth, with a bitter-sweet finish. It is rich, impressively smooth and very well-balanced. Another gem from De Struise Brouwers.

2008 vintage. Poured from 11oz bottle. Pours dark brown with minimal head. Nose is vinous with some dried fruits and toffee. Taste is dried fruit some sweetness and just a touch of Belgian yeast in there. The alcohol is well hidden.

dylan88 (223) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
33 cl bottle. Pours hazy mahogany/brown with a light brown head. The aroma is roasted malt, rock candy, raisins, plumes and is quite vinous. Flavour is sweet malt, caramel, oak, dark fruit and a hint of alcohol, lovely and complex.

2008 vintage. Pour was a dark brown with a quickly decipating off white head. Nose of toffee, fruit, raisins, and yeast. Taste follows the nose and is sweet with a nice warming finish. There is also a hint of wood from the aging process. This is a phenomenal beer and certainly worth whatever it takes to get it.

And at that point you tell yourself it was all worth it. This is such a delicious beer. Read all the other reviews if you dont believe me.
