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.

Aroma is slight, with only a touch of sweetness and sucrose. Palate is very sticky and sweet as it enters the mouth, with lots of candi sugar, brown sugar, sweet cherries. I notice none of the brett they mention. A rich and filling beer, that could do with reducing sugars and bringing out the brett.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Dark mahogany with a foamy white head and some lace. Aroma is very sweet with caramel. Dark fruits are in the mix as well. Slight yeast and/or bread smells, too. The flavor is much the same as the aroma but bittering hops come in to the equation. A touch more in the spice department as well. The end is a bit bitter and some heat shows up. Thick and chewy body leaves a coat in the mouth.

Thanks to Dough77 for ths. Reddish-hued, medium-brown body that makes a small, but persistent, creamy tan head of tight bubbles. Sweet, fruity, complex aroma. Fresh yeast. Smoothly delivered flavor that follows the aroma. Just enough bittering in the finish to balance the sweetness. Not bad.

"Poured a brown color with almost no head. Aroma was of spices and bananas. Flavor was of spices dark fruits, not sure where the banana aroma came from cause didn’t really get that in the flavor. Had an alcohol bit to it that i didn’t enjoy."

ABUSEDGOAT (2419) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Hazy deep amber body with a very small head. Fruity aroma with yeast and light spices. Some caramel and sugar. Flavor has a more pronounced fruity taste. Got cherries and raisins, hint of berries. I found the flavor and mouthfeel to be more appealing than the nose. Medium bodied. Still, something feels off or messed up. Not bad, but could be a lot better.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2006
I saw this in a liquor store in Lawrence Kansas and just thought I’d give it a try. 12 oz. Bottle. It pours murky light red with a quickly dissipating head and no lacing. The nose consists of raisin, plum and brown sugar. It has robust brown sugar, fruit, and raisin flavors. A little on the flat side but otherwise it is nice beer.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Dark multi brown. Frothy, off white head. Rich and roasty caramel malt, doughy yeast, dark fruits, candi sugar, cocoa powder, and subtle anise and alcohol. Full, smooth palate. Great brew after dinner with a mild cigar.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2007 Original Rating: Was expecting a dubbel for some reason up through the pour. Poured the standard red-brown of a dubbel but with an unimpressive head. The aroma shocked me, as bananas jumped out with spices and yeast (I’m not used to bananas in dark malted Belgian beers and was wondering where the dark fruits were). Flavor was rich and spicey with dark fruits and candi sugar coming through. Bananas only in the background of the flavor and the alcohol came through a bit sharp. I’ll bet this one is a fine aged beer to drink after a few years (this sampling was only 7 mos old from bottling). I shoulda stored it away for a little while. Impatient me. Re-rate, 6/07, courtesy beerded_one at SL: Amber orangey bornw color pour, good head and lacing. The aroma/flavor was caramel, toasty nuts, sweet malts, light spices, fruity concoction. A decent brew. Thanks, Paul, for this re-rate!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 Poured medium amber with a small white head. Malty, fruity aroma and subtle fruit taste. Stronger than it tastes. A bit pricey, but cheaper than a flight to Belgium, and right up there in taste.
