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.

Spab (2241) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2014
765 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky dark amber colour with average-size dense cream-coloured head. Aroma is candied sugar, caramelized fruit, Belgian yeast and gentle spiciness. Flavour is candied fruits - pear/apple, banana and fig - definite Belgian yeast and caramel. Fine carbonation. Average-full body. Quite a nice dubbel.

Aroma of caramel, floral, alcohol. Appearance of amber, clear, sparkling with a minimal head. The taste is medium sweet, with a medium body and creamy texture. It had average carbonation and a smooth finish. When I first tasted it, it became my favorite beer. I would recommend this to anyone.

Wow. This a gem. Thus is eminating soft fruit aromas. I can smell roasted banana from about a foot away. Sweet malty. Nice thick compact head. Viscous mouth feel. Flavour so smooth and rich. Near milkshakey. Again soft fruit notes with banana dominating. Haven’t been this impressed in awhile. Love it.

January 31, 2014. 765mL bottle from LCBO at Front and Jarvis. Brownish red in colour. Lovely aroma of raisins and caramel that I smelled immediately upon opening the bottle. Quite a lovely dubbel. I would say this is comparable to a Trappist dubbel. Nicely done.

Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. 2010 bottling. The pour’s amber with a small head. Strong honey and Belgian yeast. Caramelised pear flavors. Nutmeg, brown bread. Earthy yeast. Medium body, soft carbonation. Solid effort.

Freaky_tiki (471) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
Pours deep ruby with a fine sheet of foam atop. Aroma is promising as it pours into my glass. While its rich & sugary off the top, interesting notes of figs, dark fruit & citrus zest roll out. A tad softer than the original Belgians, and definitely over rated on this site -- really, a pure & unbiased 5 out of 5? - but it is a damn fine interpretation of the style.

Incredibly smooth and rich Belgian Dubbel. I could really think about it and find something wrong with it I'm sure, but I really enjoy almost everything about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled 11/7/08 opened on 1/25/14 I think barley wine is not my jam, but if I had rated it originally the first time I had it I would’ve hated it. Mildly sweet, kind of chunky... Idk how else to really describe it.

Helsdon (111) - Toronto, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
A 2013 750ml bottle bought at my local LCBO. Aromas of fig, booze and brown sugar. Pours with a thin minimal head, with a orange darker-brown colour. Rich sweet flavour with a strong hit of booze woith more of the dried fig flavour. Very nice beer, not blow away, but good.
