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.

Tweeke (37) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2011
Bottle, 2006 vintage. Very fine bubbles, head disappears quickly. Creaminess, vanilla, dark fruit in the nose. Very soft and balanced taste, butterscotch, caramel, vanilla. Medium to heavy body. Little carbonation, but far from flat. Nice and delicate long finish.

BuckeyeBoy (7164) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 13, 2011
Vintage 2008 bottle Thanks to Sam. Pours out brown with some red highlights topped with a sand head. Aroma was of caramel, pit fruit, oak, and some spice. Taste was nice more of the pit fruit sweetness along with a good spice and malt.

11.2oz bottle. 2008 vintage. Served at cellar temp into a St. Bernardus goblet, leaving the lees in the bottle to enjoy later on their own.

Pours murky brown with a small short-lived light tan head that holds a wispy cap and leaves fair lacing.

Aroma is rich dark fruits, wine like tannin qualities, figs, plums, dates, raisins, candi sugar and belgian yeast, the oak and vanilla notes come through as well. Quite complex and of very good strength.

Flavor follows suit with intense dark fruits as in the nose, candi sugar, caramel, molasses, chocolate, vanilla, oak, quite sweet, very very rich, minimal alcohol at the end. Delicious.

Mouthfeel is medium-full, creamy, soft, low carbonation, somewhat sticky.

An absolutely fantastic BSDA. Love the effects of oak aging to add an additional layer of complexity. Quite a treat!

callmemickey (4526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 2007 bottle tasted blind as part of a top 10 quad blind tasting. A: Deep brown body with the faintest hints of red. Healthy khaki cap. S: Plenty of dark fruits, figs and raisins. A little clove and possibly nutmeg. T: Spice (nutmeg?) and loads of dark fruits up front. Nice malty base with caramel and brown sugar. M: Medium-full bodied. Smooth and velvety. O: Very nice. Layered and complex. Top notch quad.

drabmuh (194) - Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Beer is dark brown and hazy with a strong tan head of tiny bubbles that leaves a TON of lacing on the glass, its completely coated. Beer served in a Russian River tulip. Carbonation steady. Aroma is sweet and caramelly with some dark fruit and candy in there. Beer is sweet and medium to thick in the mouth. The roast comes up late and is separated from the total beer. This is a nice, caramel candied beer. Oddly dry late on the palate though. Beer is very drinkable. Its very awesome. If you like Quads, this is a must try. Low bitterness, easy finish, a great great beer. The oak is not pronounced in oakiness or vanilla in this beer though, if it were more oaky in its nature I think I would appreciate the oak aging more. Personally. Serving type: bottle

chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
33cl bottle picked up from the web shop. 2008 vintage appropriately served in a De Struise glass... A dark hued copper with hints of amber, slightly see through, a little darker than Pannepot. The head is a light tan, only rises a couple fingers, not much especially for a De Struise glass pour. Good retention and lacing though... The aroma is surprisingly restrained for an oaked version of Pannepot, Pannepot seems to have stronger and sweeter quad notes. Typical quad notes of dark fruits, figs, and raisins are there but they come off a touch sterile, metallic, chemical. I dont get any nice caramel or candi sugar or oak. Sterile figs with alcohol. Im sadly not loving this... The taste is much better as it really brings out dried figs and raisins, subtle oak, and some molasses. Very tastey and drinkable. However, the mouthfeel is super light, especially compared to the base beer. Incredibly crushable 10%. This is still a very good quad, just slightly disappointed in the nose and mouthfeel. I bought a dozen of these so hopefully they get better in time.

bb (8987) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle. 2008 vintage. Brown-mahogony beer with a thin light tan head. Spice and malt aroma with caramel, light sweetness, and light fruitiness. Malt and caramel flavor with light brown sugar, light spice, and light apple. Medium bodied. Malt and caramel lingers with light spice, light yeast, and light apple fruitiness.

2008 33cL bottle. Thanks Jason! Classic luscious Pannepot, such a fantastic and wonderful beer. Its got everything you want in a Belgian Dark Strong and more, spice, caramel, and dark fruit. This version gains a drier edge from the barrel that meshes up with the spiced notes, although, the notable presence of wood is minimal. I love the multidimensionality of this beer, complex in so many directions. Fluffy, warm, refined, boozy. Digging a little deeper, this seems thinner than the original and little dustier in the finish.
