4.6/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Best before 07-08-11 12oz capped bottle.

A: Classic dark Belgian strong ale look: nice clear ruby red and dark brown hues all around. Minimal head, lacing is thus equally absent, but the tears are nice to behold.

S: Sweet dark fruit. Blackberries, plums, cherries and figs. Not as aromatic as expected.

T: One word: Delicious. Trois Pistoles tastes like it smells, only much more of all that same dark, lush fruit. As this warms up more complexity emerges, always remaining balanced enough to merit the highest possible score. I love it when a beer tastes even better than it smells.

M: Carbonation is ample and the body is medium to full. It leaves my mouth feeling very pleased with itself.

D: One 12ozER is not enough. While I am sipping this to make it last, I am confident that I could deal with whole champage bottle on my own. In fact, I seem to recall having done this sometime in the murky past...

An all-time favorite that deserves a blind tasting vs. Chimay Grande Réserve, Brasserie Des Rocs Triple Impériale, N'Ice Chouffe and Gulden Draak.
