I'll keep it short. So drinkable, smooth, no taste of alcohol, but dangerous at 9%abv. Dark with taste of dark fruits, yeast and brown sugar.

Blended absolutely perfect! One of my favorite beers ever!

Not a huge fan of Belgians....but this is a good one. The beer pours dark with thick white head....but no lace. The scent and taste are common to Belgians. Overall its worth a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into tall snifter glass.

Appearance: a dark brown while pouring. Not translucent but light shines though. Dark Takes after a brown ale. Very foamy, yet not thick head. Dissipated pretty quickly.

Smell: some dark fruits, tons of yeast, little bit of a cola smell. Mildly sweet.

Taste: It almost identical to the smell. Dark fruits with a lot of yeast. A touch of cola at the finsh.

Mouthfeel: medium body. Too carbonated in my opinion. Also somewhat acidic in the mouth.

Overall: Belgian beers have never been my favorite - probably because of the yeast and dark fruits. This is pretty much what this beer takes after. And it does a good job at that.

I earned this one after 3 1/2 hours of shoveling the driveway and raking the roof. Trois Pistoles by Unibroue of Quebec, one of the best breweries in the world. This is a "dark ale on lees" (meaning the leftover sediment and dead yeast - don't let that turn you off) with spices. Smell is heavy with dark fruits, like prunes and raisins, and some pepper. Nearly pitch black color with nice head. Taste is smooth and heavily malty with the same dark fruits but minimal pepper. No hops detected here even though I know they're there. Very smooth mouthfeel with a sweetness that lingers. At 9% ABV it is a true sipper.
