2010 Reserva. poured into tulip.
A: pours a dark brownish/red. head is slightly off-white with hints of red. retention is decent. no lacing.
S: decent amount of oak with a lot of sweet unfermented sugar. a good deal of fruit underneath, but this is super sweet and relatively oaky.
T: a really rich drink. vinous. plums. figs. sweet heat, but not overwhelming. actually it is pretty mellow. oak is there and you can definitely tell in the finish. dries it out best it can. however, it doesn't completely. lingering fig flavor.
M: lower carb on a full body.
D: not too shabby. a full bodied brew with a good deal of flavor. very complex. the oak is present and adds one more dimension to regular pannepot.

Huge thanks to naproxen for this truly remarkable brew. Thanks, Aliza!!
2006 version into the Duvel tulip.
Murky brown pour with a thick creamy constant head that never fades out...
Superbly complex aroma of brown sugar, raisins, grapes, a touch of chocolate, perhaps some earthy oak, and loads of other things that seem to rush up out of the glass at me... Damn, this really smells delicious...I mean really delicious...
Oh... And I'm not disappointed at all... This is just terrific...a perfect blend of sweet dark fruits blended with brown sugar and vanilla with some definite chocolate notes that finishes with the slightest of booziness that sets this off....very earthy and dark...
I'm starting to find a real appreciation for Belgians and this is near the absolute top of those that I've had... I've been wanting to try this forever and to be able to secure the Danish version is extra special... You rock, Aliza!

330 mL bottle, unfiltered, unpasteurized and bottle-conditioned. This is Pannepot aged in French oak barrels; 2008 vintage. Pours deep crimson with some expected floaties, light carbonation and a thin cap of light tan head that retains throughout and leaves some lacing. Smells malty with fermented dark sugars (raisins, plums, cherries, blue/blackberries), spicy/phenolic yeast and some fruity alcohol. Tastes of spice, sweet citrus, raisins and prunes, dates?, and chalky yeast. A little sweet, with some bitterness underneath, and a light winey character that wants to contribute oak, but can't quite push it through. It is very thick and viscous, with low carbonation and a mild tannic dryness. As it warms it lightens and the carbonation increases, which is odd. Not terribly complex, but very tasty, with a pleasant, but restrained oak flavor. Quite an enjoyable brew that is very easy to drink. Well-worth picking up two of these - one for drinking and one for aging.

Pours brown in color with little to no head that is gone after a few moments.
Smell is very rich, dark fruits and some alcohol as well. There are some raisins making there presence known as well.
Wow, this is a good beer. Incredibly complex and smooth. There's a bit of sweetness in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium, but it basically dances in your mouth then runs down your throat. Perfect amount of carbonation, almost perfect on the mouthfeel. This is a pure enjoyment to drink.

2010 Reserva poured into a tulip glass and you can immediately smell this beer. The aroma is big oak right up front, with sweet dark fruits in the background. I cannot wait to take the first sip.
First flavor is strong alcohol, but that quickly mellows out and this beer's true colors start to show. It's sweet, dark, roasty fruit. You can taste the wonderful oak flavor. It's deep and it sticks with you. Finishes with a boozy aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is outstanding. Silky, with the perfect amount of carbonation for the style.
Overall, comparable with standard Pannepot, but just.. different.

Bottle into The Bruery tulip; another bottle grabbed at Brusin' Ales in Asheville.
Pours very dark brown, murky, with a thin but quite persistent creamy light brown head on top. Fantastic explosion of lacing as the glass recedes.
Nose is beautifully rich - densely bready, cocoa and clove with some spicy alcohol, dense figs mixing with a bit of a currant bite.
Taste is more savory than expected - notes of richly spiced sweetbreads, figs and raisins, a lightly tart vinous note that brings to mind red grape skins and currants, very light earthiness on the finish that's got a bit of breadcrust. Alcohol and yeast bring loads of clove and just general spiciness to this one. A savory, almost leathery quality to it, though much more appealing in action than in description. Beautifully balanced between tart and sweet, spicy and savory. Every aspect perfect complementary to the other 3.
Mouthfeel is lightly fluffy, carbonation massages the tongue over a medium-full body that isn't heavy at all. Beautifully done.
Fantastic drinkability. Excellent all-around beer, but the flavor and mouthfeel really bump this one up. Beautiful.
