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.

Had the Pannepot Reserva 2008 version at Brugse Beertje. Wont get any blacker than this. Aroma has caramel, roasted malts, coffee, licorice, charcoaled oak and some alcohol. The flavour is incredible. The dry bitterness of the coffee, with the smokeyness of the oak coming back sideways. This is really good and interesting, too bad I could only try one bottle.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2011 Had this bottle at Craig Garvies place. I absolutely love this beer. We had the 2005 oak aged version. The beer poured a deep rich ruby colour with lots of stewed fruits, cherries, Christmas cake, oak and creme caramel on the nose. The aroma is absolutely spectacular! Taste great with raisons and sour fruits balanced perfectly with the oak. Flemish red style but not quite so sharp. Very chewy mouthfeel. Also on draught at the Boreft Beer Festival, 2011. Port wine barrel. Pours a brown colour with caramel, tar, leather and port wine characters. Lovely!

2005 vintage at a cgarvieuk tasting. Pour is opaque dark brown, with a small and inconsistent beige head. Nose is massively complex - sherry, raspberry, oak, stewed fruits... Taste is rich and funky, with plum fruit, raspberry, very juicy. The oak is present yet subtle. Slight hint of booze but in a rich, warming way, not unpleasant at all. Spices, figs, marzipan, hint of lambic sourness even. So many layers, yet it somehow stays silky smooth. Lovely stuff.

05 bottle I got in trade and brought to BA speedway release. Orange brown with big fizzy head. Yeasty suspension. Nose apples and spice. Taste has a bit of cardboard for sure, but not too bad. Spice and malt and berry hints. Medicine back. Good but prob past its prime.

reggiedunlop (3703) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2011
2008 bottle...pours an opaque chocolate brown with a medium sized tan head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma is nutty and boozy...earthy...slightly sweet. Flavor follows suit but is slightly more sweet...raisin...yet has subtle fruit and sour notes. Not muddled at all. Mouthfeel is silky smooth and the finish lingers with roasty notes and delicate hops. Awesome!

Hermod (7225) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
33cl bottle @home, labeled Reserva 2008. BB 4/2015. Enjoyed as my 1000th rating.Shared with my better half. Poured brown color with a thin head. Complex aroma of molasses, caramel malt and dried fruits. Flavor is caramel, wood, sweet fruit and some spicy notes, everything blending together perfectly. Silky smooth, no trace of alcohol whatsoever. Long lingering caramelly finish. Medium bodied.

Fits in between the original Pannepot and the Pannepot grand reserva, taste wise. Great beer, but im not sure about the additional flavors that result from the aging on oak.. the port like hints blend in well, but theyre not my favorite.

Rune (12063) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
330ml bottle, labelled PNP no. 4, 2008, nicely served at t Brugs Beertje. Low, beige head. Inviting deep, dark-ruby body colour. Fine smell of dried and dark fruits. Delicate taste profile with dark-dried fruits in interplay with candy sweetness, alcohol and a twist of barrel. Lingering finish and full bodied. Very tasty (Brugge, 02.05.2011).
