Pere Jacques

12 oz single from Jungle Jim’s, Cincinnati, OH, USA. 2009 vintage.
Bottled on 10/05/09. Also has 2019 printed next to it which I first thought might be a BB date, but that would contradict the text on the label that says it will develop in the bottle for up to 5 years. Maybe a batch #.
Poured into the Terrapin snifter the beer ultimately settles to take on the appearance of a cognac. Still, light copper colored body with zero hint of head or lace. Strange since it suggests a MUCH higher ABV.
A lot of brown sugar and alcohol in the nose. This gives way to some massive bubble-gum highlights in the mouth and finishes with plenty of warming alcohol. The bubble-gum is somewhat off-putting as it seems to go against the style. It IS in line with a big, sugary candy note, but it seems out of context for a Dubbel and a Belgian yeast note is not there.
Strange beast and not my cup of tea.
