Pours a dark brown with a purple hue with thin white head that lingers and laces the glass. This beer is totally different cold. A lot more fruity with hints of plum, apple, cherries, and raisin in both taste and smell when at lower temperatures. While interesting to try cold, it's much more complex at a warmer temperature. I get lots of spice and confectioner's sugar in the nose. Taste starts out with dark, bitter malt, fades to a hint of cherries, and ends with hot alcohol and bitter hops. This beer is highly carbonated with small bubbles and a creamy feel in the mouth.
This is complex and a bit of a challenge. Spend some time with Trois Pistoles and you'll appreciate it better. I usually like the dark Belgians, but this one just came out of left field with all the fruit flavors and complexities. I feel the spices really throw off the balance, but the taste that lingers always begs me to take another sip. Not sure what to make of it or how to compare it with other dark, high ABV Belgians I've tried. Guess I'll have to have another...
