This bottle has been sitting in my beer fridge for about 3 years at 45-50F.

Murky, caramel brown with a decent inital foam head that rises to the top of the tulip glass -- yeast dregs spin darker colours into the head.

Medicinal, grassy, just a touch, with liquor soaked sweet cherries, hint of chocoloate.

Bone dry, soft mealy mouthfeel. Alcohol is high, but very hidden, very spooky, lending a nice spicy character to the flavour and blending with a chocolate malt flavour (brownie-like). Soft cherry flavours. Sweet caramel, bready flavour holds things up. Hops are grassy, but not overpowering. Alcohol comes back for a second haunt, this time warming the gullet and head. Mineral towards the finish with dry baked chocolate residuals, some spice and faded esters.

I have found my god. It's lives in all bottles of Trois Pistoles -- 3 year old bottles, but godly nonetheless.

4.45/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 12oz brown twist with a bottled on date on the back label.

Appearance: Tawny amber brown with a thin tan lace that does not subside.

Smell: Grassy with a barn yard / horse blanket and a mild tartness in the aroma.

Taste: Crisp carbonation with a chewy malt palate that has toasted and chocolate undertones. Very rich and spicy with hints of black pepper. Alcohol is quite evident allowing some sweetness to the taste buds and also lending a hand to the spicy flavours. The rest of the palate is on the dry side with an underlying grainy, herbal and earthy taste throughout.

Notes: Another spectacular brew from one of the best breweries from Canada. Big enough to pair up with the most robust meals or just to sip the cold winter months away. Packed with complex flavours and deviously drinkable at 9% abv.
