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.

08 bottle in a lovely Odell skinny tulip - perfect glass for this beer. Flows into the glass with a deep ruby tint which subsequently is nearly overwhelmed by deep brown. A foamy tan head sits on top. The nose packs a punch - candy sugar and bubblegum are dominant, with raisins, figs, plums, and caramel assisting and a hint of musty oak alongside. The flavor is less sugar-dominated and carries through more of the fruity, malty tones - raisins, chocolate brownies, dark cherries, plums. Finishes smooth, rich, and velvety with a little hint of tannins. The palate is smooth as butter the whole way through - perfect carbonation on this one. The head is quite persistent, especially considering its lower carbonation level. All in all, this beer satisfies nearly every whim a beer drinker could dream up. Regular Pannepot is great, too. But this one takes the cake.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2011
2008 bottle courtesy of GL2814. Pours slightly hazy reddish/mahogany with a very small tan head. The aromas are slight bubblegum, oak, vanilla, caramel, raisin, and brandy. The flavor is toffee and sweet raisin, woody and smoky oak, mild Chardonnay, and buttery oak. Also present are slightly tart tamarind, slight grape notes, and peppery yeast and citrus. Mmm. Low carbonation and full-bodied, with a creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Very good! [611]

This was a very complex beer. This is the first beer that I actually caught the bubblegum aroma. Deep ruby color. Strong oak barrel flavors and aromas. Only really got a taste since I split a single bottle with a bunch of people. Very good.

2007 vintage on tap at Maxs in Baltimore. Chestnut brown pour with a slightly offwhite head. Aroma is dark fruit, figs, caramel, molasses raisins, a bit of wood. Flavor is malty, caramel, raisins, a touch of oxidation but in a good way. Really nice beer.

I bought this beer to share with friends, not knowing how hard it is to come by in certain areas. Upon pouring it, one cant help but notice the dark color of the body, coupled with the beige foam on top. Its taste was complex, as the malts and spices blend, creating a taste difficult to describe. Sweet, fruity, caramel flavors, with a note of ginger and raisins. Its aroma was similar to that of plum pudding. After tasting it, I now understand why this is such a difficult beer to obtain.

Sample @BBF 2010. Nice beer! Strong hints of caramel and candy dominate the sip. So easy to drink!

Murky mahogany pour with a thin eggshell head that left a decent amount of lacing. Nose is dark fruit, cocoa, and toffee. Flavor shows caramel, raisin, brown sugar, and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with the ABV well hidden.

Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, raisins, caramel, figs and brown sugar. Flavor was fairly sweet, rich and smooth with dark caramel, raisins, brown sugar, sweet dark fruit, light wood and a hint of toffee. A delicious and well balanced belgian strong

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - FEB 9, 2011
(Draft at Amesbury Alehouse) Served in a tulip (sort of). Pours very dark brown with a sort of reddish hue. Brown-amber highlights. Very little head that disappears to just some specks. Still-looking. Aroma is fairly mild but has notes of fruit (cherry/plum), chocolate, port and burgundy. Served a little too cold to get a good sense of the aroma. Mouthfeel is heavy and smooth, very light evidence of carbonation. Very little lacing. Flavor of dark fruits, chocolate and burgundy with some swirls of caramel as it warmed. Has the oak aging damped out much of the flavor and nuance I remember from regular Pannepot, along with the body, or did I just get an odd glass? At its best this sample reminded me of something like Southampton Abt 12 but then the next quaff reminded me of something like a flat Angels Share.
