COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with loads of malt and Belgian yeast, Pere Jacques is a wonderfully fruity, malty ale. Pere Jacques’ complex flavors stand shoulder to shoulder with the Belgian Dubbels enjoyed in the world’s finest beer bars. At the dining table it’s the perfect alternative to a glass of vintage port.

Thanks to hopdog for breaking this open... Appears a dark amber with a small off white cap and small amounts of lacing around the glass. Smell is of caramel, nuts, wood, raisins, and plum. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with caramel being the standout of the bunch. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium bodied, slightly sweet, and hiding that 9% nicely.

Pours a cloudy pale brown, has a nice off white head with good lacing. Sweet maltly fruity aroma. Very sweet roasted malt flavor with hints of prunes and raisins. Mild hop bitterness as well. Some alcohol warmth after the swallow, but not overly assertive. Looks more like a dubbel than a triple, but it has the ABV of a triple. Very good effort.

From a twisted cap long neck brown bottle with a blurb about the dubbel on the front label and a bottled on date on the back label, 02/16/05. Made a very good appearance, poured a cloudy dark orange hued amber with a fluffy, foamy pale tannish head that settled into a thin, foamy, creamy-like lacing, small amount of sticking, good carbonation. Had a caramelize sugar, toffee, fruity and dry Belgian yeasty nose with whiffs of spicy rum-like alcohol. A crisp, creamy, carbonated smooth fullish bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Toffee and caramelized malts taste, plum fruity, yeasty, a good crispiness from the malts, a nice spicy alcohol warmth in the palate and a fruity and caramelized malty finish, with a yeasty and spicy alcohol warmth lingering in the palate. Tasty and balanced Dubbel from Goose Island, another quaffable beer from a consistently good brewer.

this was a pretty good beer. Had it at the LI beerfest. I wish I could have bought a bottle, the small taste was a real teaser.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Bottled 2/16/05 Yeast-laden nose with a nice round oaky character; some sweet maple and just a touch of dried fruit. The first thing that hits the tongue is the carbonation - an acidity that gives the immediate impression this beer will make you pucker, but that quickly subsides and the warmth of the malt takes over. The carbonation may be a bit sharp due to its aging, but it has let the body really settle out nicely. The high ABV is not readily apparent behind the very present yeast and malt. Slightly chewy, very sticky. The aroma is perhaps a bit more intruiging than the flavor proves to be, but nonetheless this beer holds up very well.

Headbanger (3246) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2007 Draught Goose Island Wrigleyville-A hazy red with a constant head ring. Aroma of malt and yeast. A little sweet and it seems to cover up fruit tase. Overall a good tasting Belgium. 12oz bottled on 1/21/05-Body with a deep amber color and an off white head. Aroma of toffee, yeast, alcohol, and malt. Taste of alcohol, yeast, caramel, and toffee. I liked it better aged a bit. 7/4/7/4/15

beastiefan2k (2368) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Rating #200. Poured into a Goose Island goblet. Color is dark brown but translucent, cannot see through the beer. The aroma is Belgian sweet. The taste however is lighter than expected, thinner body. That belgian sweetness is less present. The aftertaste lingers for a while, again that sweet belgian-y aftertaste. A good stab at an abbey dubbel.

blankboy (5974) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby-brown with an average size somewhat-lasting foamy off-white head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, yeast, a little sourness, dark fruit (moslty cherries), brown sugar, spices and alcohol -- there’s lots going on there. Very nice sweet flavour of caramel malt, yeast, fruit (cherries again and more), spices and alcohol. Medium bodied. If I had to complain I’d say I found it a touch too sweet at first but that seemed to pass as it warmed slightly. I was quite impressed with this, it’s a very good Belgian style beer.

tennisjoel (1161) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2006
Murky red with a small ring of head which is long lasting. Aroma is of cherry, brown sugar, spices, very sweet. Sweet flavor follows. Lots of malt and yeast used in this brew. Refreshing and decent. Maybe just a touch too sweet. The one thing the belgians may do better is that their beers are more carbonated to dampen the sweetness. Still a very good effort for Goose Island.

iowaherkeye (2690) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - APR 18, 2006
Bottled 2/16/05, 12oz. Pours a cloudy brownish red with almost no head. Very malty--aroma of dark fruits, brown sugar and molasses. A little bit of spicy hops noted as well. Very sweet, with molasses and raisins coming through fairly strong, alcohol present, a little bit of spicy hops, into a bittersweet finish. Low carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Good stuff.
