Fantastic dark brown color with a deep dark red glow coming through. I did find the original version just a little better, but this is still a very nice beer. Gonna try the Grand reserva real soon. wekker84 (2360) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2011

Pours a nice mahogany hue with ruby highlights. Small tan head that leaves just a slight amount of lacing as it slowly dies down. A very bubble gummy aroma and dark dried fruit. Caramel and a slight vanilla aroma as well. Sweet taste with a nice overall flavor. Caramel, again in the taste. A little bitter in the back, mixed with a bit of a sweet aftertaste. Nice beer.

2007 bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Deep brown body, thin beige head. Nose of caramel, toffee, and sweet brown sugar. Body of toffee, toast, caramel, and alcohol; modest sweetness, finishing bitter with alcohol notes. jake65 (3689) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUN 30, 2011
2008 Bottle - thanks spencerDB. Pours a flat chocolate brown color with a small ring of beige head. Aroma is soft barrel aging notes and vinous elements, lending itself to a sweet, yet tart aroma. Hints of spices. Flavor is smooth and well balanced; chocolate, barrel notes, earthy, raisons, and faint spices. The different flavors come together seemlessly... Delicious.

Bottle 33 cl, Skjold Brune, Århus. Pours dark brown with a small tanned head leaving some lace. Lovely aroma of yeast, dark fruits, brown sugar, fidges, alcohol, malt and hops. Acidy sweet fullbodied mouthfeel. Velvety flavor of malts, fruits, sweet, alcohol, fidges, prunes and nice bitter tartness. All well balanced. Finishes sweet and slightly acidy in the beginning and with a great bitter tart aftertaste in the end. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2011

Had the Pannepot Reserva 2008 version at Brugse Beertje. Won’t 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.
