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.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2010 2010-08-06, bottle, vintage 2009, 1 year old, 6-4-7-3-14=34
Beautiful red-amber color; good-sized frothy head. Aroma of caramel, quite mature, and a bit metallic too. Medium body strength; it has a strong caramel flavor, sugary, a tad metallic, with tones of liquorice; the alcohol is too evident. Confused.

2007-09-29, draught at the brewpub, Clybourn location, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Hazy dark amber color. The aroma is quite fruity, malty, sweet. Very good body, good malt flavor, with a nice fruitness from the yeast. A classic strong Belgian Ale, more powerful than the Matilda, but less characteristic; warming in the end. Very good.


2007-06-23, bottled on 2006-01-23, 1 and half years old, 8-4-8-4-17=41
Hazy chestnut color; thin creamy head. Strong malty aroma; the yeast leaves fruity notes; a touch of sweet wood, maybe of Bourbon vanilla, leather, very light phenol. Full mouthfeel, full malty flavor, very sweet (but not cloying). Warming final; not bitter enough, but nice and strong malt, vanilla, sweet wood.
Sweeter than a traditional Belgian Ale, not enough hop to be a Barley Wine.
The complexity of the aroma, and the epicurean luscious malt, for a great beer.
