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.

Excellent beer. Combines Pannepots huge fruity, malty flavors with drying oak overtones. Raisins, plums, prunes, figs, dates, molasses, caramel, spice, sherry and wood. The taste is fairly sweet but ends with a dry oak flavor. Lush mouthfeel that, again, mostly dries out in the end. Just makes me hunger all the more for the Grande Reserva.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Pours dark brown to ruby with a thin wispy off-white head. Notes of dark fruits, spice, clove, oak, wine. Full to heavy bodied, soft foamy carbonation. Very subtle and delightful.

Zymurgeist2 (2005) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Pours brown with a tan head collaring the glass and dusting the top. Nice malt with high alcohol notes. Nice round mouthfeel. Lots of malt and alcohol. Not much oak here. Nothing stands out on this for me.

jaghana (5704) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle 33cl from brewery. A dark beer with no head. Smell is a bit vinous with champagne yeast notes. Aroma is medium sweet with toasted notes, spicy presence with a bit acid and vinous aroma as for Stille Nacht beer. Notes of apples, apricot, quite dry at the finish with a good dark chocolate presence.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a very deep amber brown with a small off white froth. Aroma is very strong dark fruits, lots of plum, raisin, even a touch of overripe red grapes. Toasty with a noticeable candied fruit and some brown sugar. Flavor starts with some more very deep fruit, sherry, just a lot of fruity notes with a touch of acidity in the woody and slightly boozy finish. The toast and brown sugar linger after the swallow. Excellent beer, the oak is very nice and supports the rich fruit and tart notes nicely.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2010
0.33 l bottle (vintage 2007), thanks hanniku and Timo A! Dark almost opaque reddish brown color. Thick sweet and sour aroma of soya sayce, raisins, plum licorice, toffee and bready yeast. Sweet taste of raisins, toffee, dark caramel, oak. Full body. Lots of umam taste, quite complex. Too sweet, could be dryer.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2010
More mellow than the original Pannepot with notes of oak and sweet dark fruits. The palate is soft and very smooth with a little less carbonation. Completely balanced and everything works well together. The oak has definitely resulted in a softer, smoother beer...but its hard to say if one version is better than the other. Ill definitely have to revisit both soon.

CamdenD (1195) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 24, 2010
2008 vintage. Oak aging done very well. Understated, for the type, aroma of sweet malts and a little smoke. Alcohol not present. Beautiful deep mahogany appearance and wonderfully elegant mouthfeel. This is a classy beer, well-constructed. Worth $9/11oz?

11.2oz 2008 vintage. Pours a deep mahogany with a nice off white head. Looks delicious. Great aroma of molasses, candied dark fruit, a touch of cocoa. Rich aroma. Perfect mouthfeel a medium to thick body balanced carbonation. Sweet and rich. Candied fruit of fig, plum, and raisin. A nice subtle spice.The ten percent is virtually unoticable. Brown sugar and vanilla contribute to a richness that is incredibly balanced and drinkable. Awesome, Ill have to set another aside and see how this matures. A pleasure to drink.
