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.

[3834-20110723] 330mL bottle. Toasted banana fruit malt aroma. Murky, dark mahogany brown body with a quick foamy tan head. Sweet and thick syrupy fruit malt flavour has a hint of a toasty charredness. Full body. Interesting. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3

2011-07-23. Ruby tinged dark brown body, small beige head. Very fruity aroma, light alcohol. Flavour is similar, very fruity character, sweet sugary malt core. Hints at cherry like accents. Muted herbal spice touches in the finish. Oak is remarkably mild, with a modest bit of oak in the background, perhaps it has faded with time? Smooth medium bodied palate is very softly carbonated. Less complex than anticipated, but very nice. 2008 Vintage, Bottle from Belgium Trip

2007 33cl bottle. Poured into my Westy chalice. Color is a dark brown with a huge off-white head. Crazy complex aroma of chocolates, sweet dark fruits, spices and caramel. Flavors are well blended of all of the above plus a bready maltiness. Sweet finish and a smooth mouthfeel, Not as potent as the Reserva but velly nice stuff....

Bottle shared by phaleslu. Thanks Peter. Pours dark brown with a lingering beige head. Aroma is oak, plums, sweet and caramel malts. Flavor has a lot of oak, plums, sugar and malty. Has a dry finish with light carbonation. Overall a really good beer.

Rating #2600. 750 ml bottle, but I honestly can’t remember the source. However, I’d like to know because I don’t think I expressed my sincere appreciation for a bottle this awesome. 2005 vintage, the first one- 3000 bottled in all. Pours a deep mahogany with a small beige head that manages to stick all the way down. Big oak on the aroma, along with notes of raisins, plums, brown sugar, earth, sweet and caramel malts, cranberries, some light funk, and a sneaky bit of booze that hits the nostrils late. Flavor of ripened plums, grapes, earth, candi sugar, dry grains, rain water, copper, and oak. Medium-bodied, with an initially fruity, then dry mouthfeel and modest carbonation. So complex, so nice. Amazing beer and the last piece of the Pannepot puzzle for me. What an incredible series. I’d like to try them all in a single tasting sometime.

Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUL 15, 2011
2008 bottle. Very dark brown body with a small white head. Strong aroma of blueberries, caramel, spices, chocolate and licorice. Great velvet palate with low carbonation. Sweet but not cloying, greatly balanced, chocolate and fruits. Excellent.

txspartan (1080) - Berchem, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2011
Outstanding dark strong ale just like the regular Pannepot, chocolate and licorice flavours nicely matured on oak.

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2011
330 ml bottle. 2008 version. BBE 08/2015.
Pours a dark brown colour without a head. Strong aroma of lovely oak, sweet berries and caramel. Lovely, smooth flavour of smooth caramel, strong stinging oak, sweet berries, caramel and some alcohol. Wine-like mouthfeel. Warming, oaky, fruity finish. Perfectly balanced. Just awesome.
