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.

bunget (536) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
765ml bottle. Hazy copper body, medium beige head with average retention. Aroma of berries liquor, raisins, yeast, lots of malts, a touch too much booze. Taste of caramel malt, raisins, prunes, a little yeast, apples and pears, again a badly hidden alcohol. Ok but overpriced.

12 ounce bottle into chalice, bottled on 2/21/2012. Pours moderately cloudy ruby copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, prune, fig, pear, apple, light banana, brown sugar, toffee, toast, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast ester and dark malt notes; with great strength. Taste of raisin, prune, fig, pear, apple, light banana, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, prune, fig, pear, apple, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice dubbel style. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

I love this style, and the pere Jacques did not disappoint. Dark in color, deep and fruity. Excellent.

Frozer (111) - Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2014
2010 bottle drank in may of 2014. Belgian yeast aromas are prominent. Hazy mildy dark amber. Hazy because of an overly aggressive pour . Sweet Carmel with dark fruits in the background but the yeast overpowers all. Has a slight sting to it as and aftertaste but still one of the best beers personally drank

Sugars are explosives in this one. Butterscotch,barley sugar, brown sugar with a slight bitter finish showing orange zest, apricot and herbal notes. Alcohol is warm and strong. texture is thick. Close to a malt liquor. Olfactif: Du caramel saute au nez, un butterscotch très intense, de la cassonade; le tout enrobé d’effluves d’alcool. Du bonbon au sucre d’orge, du pain grillé. Arômes maltés et sucrés surtout. Visuel:Ambrée, floue. Mousse pétillante qui descend rapidement. Très mince. Aucune trace laissée sur le verre. Gustatif: Les accents de caramel priment en attaque. Le Butterscotch, le sucre d’orge et la cassonade explosent en accents sucrés. La finale est légèrement houblonnée et laisse paraître des notes de zeste d’orange, d’abricots et d’herbes aromatiques. La texture est onctueuse, sirupeuse; l’effervescence moyenne. Les accents sucrés et alcoolisés sont bien équilibrés. Une bière très sucrée avec une légère amertume et un alcool enveloppant. Une bière dessert plus près d’une liqueur de malt.

Pours a cloudy dark brown with very little head. Smells of raisin and grain. Taste is raisins, grain and dark fruit. Apparently, this is not my style of beer. I don’t find much appealing in this one.

Deep amber color with a one finger head. Aroma is bread, malt, sweet and some citrus. Taste is malt, sweet, slight citrus and bitterness. Medium to high body with alcohol present in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
