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.
