very good strong beer, a bit sweet, creamy, light cherry. Dark brown colour with a nice cream on top!

From a 330 ml bottle (2009 vintage) into a chalice. Reviewed from notes dated November 10, 2014.

A-The beer is very, very dark...nearly black. A short, creamy head of mocha foam lasts for quite a while. Not much in the way of visible carbonation.

S-The aroma is more like a stout than many quadrupels with some nutty, chocolate and roasted flavors coming through. That being said, there is still a healthy dose of Belgian flavors like nutmeg spice, molasses, brown sugar, molasses, prune, and raisin.

T-The taste is more fruity than the smell with plum, raisin, prune, and grape flavors hitting my palate. I also taste brown sugar, tobacco, and a light kick of black pepper spice on the finish. Alcohol is mostly concealed but a little bit of medicinal flavor comes through. My bottle was a 2009 vintage so I'm not surprised that I taste a bit of oxidation.

M-A lovely, creamy, mild carbonation rolls across the palate. The body is medium to full. Very nice.

O-This is another really good De Struise beer. The Reserva, like their other BDSA/Quad style beers is a nice mix of traditional flavors that have been tweaked just a bit. The high point of this beer is the mouthfeel, which is damn near perfect. Really well made beer here.

2010 vintage into Westy Chalice


Big brown pour with dark roasty brown fuzzy head that settles to nothing. This baby picked up some carb and became a gusher.


Aroma is deep of fruit cake, dark fig, sherry, sweet date, rum raisin, and faint oaky vanilla. Smells fabulous.


Taste has a deeper chocolate powder potency than the nose. Alongside that is stewed plum, sherry, old raisin, Madeira, sweet molasses, and a roasty caramel presence. Smooth flavor profile and certainly showing signs of age.


Mouthfeel is a bit thin likely since compared to regular Pannepot this was oak aged and already has some years on it. Still a good amount of carbonation and overall pleasant feel on the palate.


Overall very nice but not as great as two year old Pannepot.

Poured 2010 11oz. bottle into St. Bernardus snifter

A-Pours very dark burgundy with 1/2 finger beige head. Has minimal lacing.

S-Aroma is of caramel, fruits, toffee, malt, some oak.

T-Taste is of caramel, fruits, and roasted malt.

M-Mouthfeel is well balanced has a semi-stickiness to the tongue. Full bodied. Low carbonation.

O-Overall this is great quad a must have. Hides the 10% very well. Must get some more.

Vintage 2009. A little assertive and astringent. Slightly sour. Otherwise, rich and spicy and magnificent. Still. Would rather have normal Pannepot.
