Goose Island Brewing Company Pere Jacques Belgian Style Dubbel - 8.7% ABV
The Belgian brewers are the masters of hiding alcohol content. On numerous occasions I have been blind sided by chugging a couple of high gravity Belgian beers that gave no indication at all of the freight train bearing down on me, leaving me battered and broken and lying in a ditch. This is not one of those beers.
I typically avoid any Inbev products due to their too often poor quality. Goose Island is the one line
that I will periodically try some of their specialty beers. Not that their specialty beers are great, they are just less likely to disappoint.
Not a great beer but a pretty good beer; I would let it sit a few years to cut into the sweetness.
