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.

2008 vintage. Pour was a dark brown with a quickly decipating off white head. Nose of toffee, fruit, raisins, and yeast. Taste follows the nose and is sweet with a nice warming finish. There is also a hint of wood from the aging process. This is a phenomenal beer and certainly worth whatever it takes to get it.

This is the beer you work up to. You start your quest, try different shit here and there, sign up for rate beer, rate a little, maybe do some trades, and then this ends up in your cup. And at that point you tell yourself it was all worth it. This is such a delicious beer. Read all the other reviews if you dont believe me.

SaintMatty (7226) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2011
330ml Bottle (2007 vintage) - Dark brown with a tan head. Vinous aroma with hints of Christmas pudding, dried fruit and spice. Warming and fruity taste with vinous fruits, Christmas pudding and marzipan. Complex, yet very easy to drink and enjoyable.

nimbleprop (8171) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2011
33cl 2008 bottle pours an almost opaque, deep, mahogany brown with a thin, creamy off white head. Nose of brandy, caramel apples, booze, rum, nail polish, a little holiday spice, some tropical fruit, smells a little like a pineapple scented candle. Flavor is lightly woody, a little nail polish, apples, malty, a little yeasty, pumpernickel bread, sherry, port, some light licorice. Finish is full bodied, but smooth and lightly sweet, lightly woody. This is so perfectly balanced right now. The base beer has a ton of booze to it, but the barrel really adds and compliments instead of compounding the problem. Theres alot of good beer aromas and flavors, but also plenty of unique barrel aromas and flavors and nothing is competing. Its all very harmonious.

Sweeter than the regular pannepot. Sweet caramel and candy. Very tasty but not as good as the regular

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 (7350) - 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.
