3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured as a taster - nose has a bit of apple and caramel, malty and sweet candy sugar. Tastes follow right along and the finish is clean.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 An exceptional dubble that hides it alcohol through a complex array of flavors. Over ripened and slightly caramelized fruit (bananas, fig, apricot, plum), ginger, fennel esters, and a strong Belgian spiciness play together perfectly, finishing long with a pleasant tartness.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a mirky brown with light brown head. Aroma is soothing. Tastes great and packed with fruity and woody flavors. Heavy beer so probably only a pint can be drunken in one sitting. 8% ABV

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an amber color with virtually no head. Aroma is dried fruit and banana. Taste is the same with a pretty good alcohol kick at the end. One of the better interpretations I’ve had.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pere Jacques pours a copper brown with a sand brown head that doesn’t last too long and leaves behind decent lacing. The aroma is dark fruit, raisin, bread and caramel. The flavor is dark fruit, raisin, caramel and a little bread. Overall this is a very nice beer and I would have another please.
