2011 Vintage. Poured from the bottle into a chalice.

Pours a deep, nearly opaque brown with a dark tan head that fades away to a dusting on top. There is some obvious sedimentation and a fair number of floaties.

The aroma is quite amazing. Deep and malty sweetness, caramel, toffee, dark dried fruit, leather and yeasty bread all coming through. As it warms a bit, even hints of dark chocolate.

The taste slowly builds on the tongue. there's sweet malt and light fruit up front growing to bitter dark chocolate and dark roast coffee and even hints of soy, although it's understated. As it warms, I get more raisin, even some fresh grape. There is a long lasting dryness on the tongue.

The mouthfeel is quite amazing. It's rich and smooth and creamy with a little bubbly feel as well.

This is a pretty remarkable drinking experience. You must try it. Awesome.

Pannepot Reserva 2010

Pours a deep mahogany brown with a thin head reducing to clumpy lacing.

Aromas of sherry, sweet Marsala, raisin, toffee, brown sugar, apple cider.

Taste leads with soft brown sugar and explodes into raisin, cherry and dark fruits. The sweet sherry comes next and finishes with some soy sauce and oak. The alcohol is well integrated.

Mouthfeel is velvety and slightly viscous but not too thick. It has the silky mouthfeel characteristics that you get with a good barrel aged beer.

I can't believe how bright and alive this beer is for it's age. I liked the Pannepot 2011 despite its intense soy sauce flavor but this bottle knocks it out of the park for me. Every sip brings a wave of intense yet intricate flavors. The sherry flavors in particular are very interesting and enjoyable. Let this warm up a bit if you are taking it out of the fridge. I will look for more bottles of the Reserva. Can't wait to crack the Grand Reserva.
