4.13/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: very dark brown with glimmers of mahogany; full sand coloured head off the pour; very inviting; cloudy from unfiltered yeast

Aroma: fain aroma, some ripe fruit, raisins

Taste & Mouthfeel: flavour matches the scent, with ripe fruit dominating - raisin, prune, cassis, even a touch of banana; great mouthfeel, carbonation is perfect, medium body, very easy drinking with only the slight hint of alcohol in the finish - which is surprisingly dry, adding to the drinkability - dangerous; caramelized pear; toffee; there's delightful complexity throughout

Overall: a flavourful, fruity beer, balanced well with a feel and finish that beg for another sip

Bucky bought a 6 pack of Unibroue's Trois Pistoles at The Beer Store for $14.95... about $2.50 per 341 ml bottle. Trois Pistoles was 9.0% alcohol by volume, with a production date of September 11, 2011 printed on the neck. This particular bottle has been sitting in my cold seller for about 14 months. A warning for those of you who have aged your Trois Pistoles for a while...about two seconds after you open the bottle a whole lot of foam will come gushing out of the bottle, so be ready with the glass. Trois Pistoles poured a dark mahogany colour, with about 2" of fizzy beige head that faded to a thin cap and collar within 3-4 minutes, leaving a little spotting down the glass. Its aroma was fabulous...plums, powdered sugar, pink bubble gum and red wine. The beer's taste began with sweet ripe plums and raisins, which gave way to powdered sugar and pink bubble gum, ending with a red wine flavour which lingered for a few seconds as an aftertaste. There's very little bitterness here, but beer's sweetness is kept under control. The 9.0% alcohol is very well hidden, both in the aroma and the flavour. The mouth feel is smooth with the carbonation being much softer than previous Unibroue beer's that I've sampled...possibly as a function of being cellared? I'll have to try a fresh bottle some time for the answer to that question. Trois Pistoles is a medium bodied brew. The verdict...yet another winner from the good folks at Unibroue, and the price is not unreasonable. Looking forward to trying the remaining bottles after they have aged even more!

T - Starts off with sweet dark fruits (plums and cherries). Mid-palate is a caramel sweetness with a finish of spicy yeast.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very smooth creamy mouthfeel.

O - This a delicious Belgian Dark Ale. Nicely balanced and extremely drinkable.
