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.

Pours a deep copper/red color body with a huge, fizzy head that fizzles down to a smal layer on top. Aroma is spicy with dark fruits and berries with a little alcohol. Very nice flavor. Rasberries, raisins, and plums with a little alcohol in the finish. A bit smoother than it looked at first. Great ale!

This definitely has a bit of an alcohol nip to it, which is perfect as it is a winter seasonal. Sweet and spicey, but at the right level. Too much of either is never good.

Thanks Chuck! Pours to a thick creamy but mostly disapating beige head. EXCELLENT lacing. The body is mahogany and has some particles in the body. The aroma is candi sugar, spicy sour green apples, toffee. The flavor is spicy, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, sugar, sweet alcohol, creme brulee, oak. The palate is medium bodied and very rich and creamy. This is a good beer. I don’t get much alcohol at all...

MIBRomeo (2493) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 30, 2005
a bit of an off orange copper cloudy color w/ a small white head. Smells sweetly of plums and carmelized sugarz along w/ a light fruit mostly apples. Palate is warm well coated smooth and creamy. Flavor is like a sweeter barley wine. Big sweet carmel malt flavor full of plums and apples lightly spicy cinnamon and nutmeg not much bitter and a noticable alcohol. Good stuff.

Nice frothy head atop a mahogney base. Good lacing. Dried fruit, sugars, a nice blend of spices in the nose. Alcohol is still very up front though. Some burnt sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, and light bitterness across my tongue. Medium body. Lingering burn

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2005
12 oz. Bottle: Poured a nice cloudy orange/amber, well carbonated, with a mostly sustaining tan head. Aroma was of spicy fruits/tart fruits (green apples, sour citrus), chocolate/toffee type background provided a sweetness to offset the tart aromas up front. Flavor was more sweet than tart, with lots of caramel dark sugars, raisens, and other fruit. I felt the alcohol was well hidden and did nothing more than provide a nice belly warming.

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2005
2004 bottle : Dirty brown with some fluffy white head. The bottle itself had a whole lot of funk at the bottom. Alcohol is very present in the nose, as are sweet malts and a fruity sweetness, although I am not too sure on which fruit. Maybe some buttery toffee as well. Huge and complex flavor. Spicy sweet to start. Sour apple and some raisins come through with the malt. Finishes warm and spicy sour. This beer really knocked me back. Only complaint is that it seemed a bit flat for the style, needed some more bubbles. Great brew. Could be a session brew, albeit a short session with the amount of alcohol in this thing.

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2005
Hazy dark amber. Alcoholic, slightly yeasty aroma with caramel undertones. Straightforward palate with caramel and alcohol, and lightly spicy yeast.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2005
12 oz bottle. Cloudy, deep copper coloured beer with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma, beautiful light yeasty spice, some herbal character (dill and oregano). Light oaky character as well. Flavour is sweet, malty, vineious, a bit of marshmallow, dusty yeast flavour, herbal/spicy with a light toasted malt finish. Vanilla retronasal. Woody and oaky finish. Soft creamy texture... just beautiful.
