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.

scotchzombie (314) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2014
Pours hazy chestnut brown and bubbled with a foamy yellow head. Some wet lacing. Aroma is strong fruit esters - even apple - toffee and some yeast. Taste is caramel, toffee and candied malt and raisin and fig darkfruit. Some booze backbone. Low carbonation. Highly drinkable and super tasty dupe. I really enjoyed this one.

Pretty good Abbey. Smooth and easy, not too strong. A little sugar sweet but beautiful look.

Stuedmaster (195) - Vista, California, USA - APR 4, 2014
750 ml. bottle with cage and cork, 2012 vintage. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, dark bread, dark fruits, toffee, cherry, and port (vinous qualities). Light brown/caramel colored pour with a slight tan head, no lacing. Nice rich flavor, very sweet and fruity, not much spice, minimal bitterness. Really comes through with a port-like warmness, alcohol is apparent. A good representation of a Belgian Dubbel.

Alpha10 (304) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
2014/03/31 - Pours a cloudy, dark amber colour with a foamy, beige head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is banana, dough, figs, caramel and toffee. Taste is toasted caramel, toffee, malt, mild banana and figs and notes of sweet liquor. Mouthfeel is medium to full body, oily texture, low to average carbonation and a mildly warming, boozy finish. Flavours were a tad subdued and carbonation was a little light, but still rather enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ericular (555) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Smooth, but really mild overall. Not as spicy as the average Belgian. Very mild fruit and slight yeast, maybe a little banana and too clean going down. Just not enough there to be worthwhile. Well hidden alcohol.

HonusWagner (1315) - Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2014
These are not the flavors I typically like in beers, and Dubbels are a style I have generally not even bothered rating in the past, but this is an excellent example of the style. Reminiscent of a banana nut bread or some other kind of holiday spiced loaf. Really delicious for a thing I’m not usually fond of.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2014
This is a full-bodied beer with a heaviness in the mouth. The flavors are a malty banana with undertones of orange, caramel, and and cane sugar. Long-lasting aftertaste.

czar (4100) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
(2012 vintage) pours hazy dark golden, almost copper, with a small off-white head, little retention and lacing. caramel - a tad linear, spices and cacao, soft but present earthy notes, fruitiness - fainted though, brown sugar and dark golden candi, bubblegum and bananas, slightly woodsy, few acetone and garbagy notes, lots of booze. moderate to low carbonation - lacking, light to medium body - oily, some sweetness - brandy-like sweetness and booziness, herbal-grassy-earthy finish. smooth mouthfeel. big disappointment. DP.
