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.

Fred82 (2251) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2011
330ml bottle from IPB. 2007 vintage. Best before March 2014.
Appearance : Deep brown with medium head that is short lived. No lacing.
Aroma : Spices with rich red fruits. Nice toffee and caramel with light alcohol. Light pears. Mineral notes. Notes of wood.
Taste : Red fruits with caramel and toffee. Nice spices with light hops and light mineral notes. Nice light sweetness on finish with notes of raisins and figs with spices. Some wood on the finish. Quite warm overall.
Overall : Nice stuff, quite complex. A bit too much alcohol. Appearance is also a bit disappointing. Nice wood presence, nice raisins and rich fruits. Very nice but the alcohol and light mineral notes didnt do it for me. Big belgians used to be my favourite thing but not that much anymore... palate changes I guess.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2011
11.2oz bottle, 2008 edition. pours a dark, hazy, burgandy with a thick, rocky, off-white head leaving sticky rings of lace. aroma is fantastic with huge notes of toffee, brandied figs, raisin bread, and dark cherries backed by subtle notes of belgian yeast, cloves, dried pears, and cocoa with a hint of oak and vanilla as it warms. flavor is wonderful as well with big fruit notes of pear, red apple, black cherry, and figs all smothered in toffee and hints of brandy backed by rich, dark breads, winter spices, and smooth, lightly toasted oak. palate is rich, full bodied, and lightly carbonated with a lingering, fruity, sweet finish. overall, a world class belgian ale.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2011
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.

skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2011
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.
