A - Poured from bottle into Chimay chalice. Pours an opaque dark brown, close to black. Large fluffy off-white head, not much lacing.
S - smells of dark fruits, especially black cherries, currants, and plums. Smells fresh and clean. Reminds me of some red wines.
T - Fruity notes like black cherries and grapes up front, with a nice malt backbone that contributes toasty brown bread and brown sugar flavors. Belgian yeast throughout. Musty red-wine like flavors at the end with a definite alcohol flavor.
M - good carbonation and body. The feel is not too oily, and the finish is a bit dry, which I like. The dry finish makes it more drinkable.
D - Quite drinkable for the ABV.
A solid offering from Unibroue. I enjoy their pale Belgians a bit more, but Trois Pistoles is a great beer if you're looking for something darker or to pair with dessert. I'd imagine this would be heavenly with some fruit-laden Crème Brulée. It's also a great beer to give to red wine drinkers to get them interested in the better form of alcohol!
