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.

Hazy unfiltered redhead of a belgian strong. Minimal head, minimal lacing. Crisp malt aroma with hints of pepper, dark fruit and light booze. This beer does not impress until it hits the lips. And once it does...your opinion changes for the better. Has an effervescence that would no doubt diminish with age and attenuation. Nice delicate balance between sweetness and robustness. Light booze throughout from start to finish. On the dry side. I’m getting more of roasty notes the more I drink this, which comes to the forefront as it warms and comes closer to its optimal serving temp. Earthiness, toffee and spice (nutmeg?) also round out the profile of this nice beer from Goose Island.

Bottled 1/14/13, consumed 9/11/16. Cloudy light mahogany, minimal tan head. Nose of deep molasses, raisin, allspice. Dark fruitiness. Lightly bitter, spicy. Muted, mellow sweetness. Medium to heavy body, creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Long finish. Everything blends together beautifully. Undertone of alcoholic sharpness. This aged remarkably well. Excellent.

Clear light brown with orange tints. Sweet aroma of candies and raisins. Body is light and sweeter than I would expect. Light spice with a lingering finish.

Aroma of prunes, raisins and malt, pours a cloudy reddish brown color. Heavily carbonated. A full bodied feel a boozy malt taste with notes of plums and prunes.

Plenty of plums, figs and raisins. Delicious. Cerveja muito saborosa, com notas de frutas vermelhas maduras, ameixas, figos e passas.

Sidder og hygger med denne øl, efter at have fået en almindelig dåseøl. Den giver nok lidt til øllen i den positive retning. Let spritet, lidt brændt smag. Eftersmagen er efter min mening lidt for brændt. Har ikke helt fylden til at smage af "rigtig Belgien".

The aroma is caddy sugar, fruit, spice. The color is light brown. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall enjoyable.

Solid malt, full palate, candy sugar, dark fruits, dates, figs. Low on hops but the malts is the superior flavor. It's perfect for a winter drinker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
