Trois Pistoles "Three Coins" Served at 55F in a wine glass.

A: Served from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy dark brown with red hi-lights. Tall head no lacing.

S: Fruit, spices, slight sour aromas.

T: Start is sweet fruity - raisins, plums, figs with subtle spiciness from yeast., Middle is bready with subtle camel & toffee, finish is mildly sour. Not as sour as the Dutches, more along the lines of the subtle sourness of Monk's Cafe. A very pleasant mild sourness that adds a nice complexity to finish and hides the abv well.

M: Medium body, high carbonation.

O: Outstanding Belgian dark ale. More session able (even at 9%) abv than most Belgian strong dark ales. The funky tart finish is what makes this my favorite Unibroue ale. Worth cellaring to see if it improves - their website suggests 5 years.

A - Pours dark copper with a quickly dissipating ivory head. No lacing.
S - Sour, malts and dark cooked fruits give way to a wine note. Dark cooked prunes, raisins, dates and cherries.
T - Quite sour, lots of winey fruit notes, virtually no hop or malt presence. Excellent winter weather beer. Let it warm up!!!!!!
O - An excellent unique beer.
V - Good Value.

Fin Du Monde may have been my first ever craft brew, even though I scarcely remember it. For some reason I approach this one with skepticism. Here goes.

I'm surprised that the initial head seems more bubbly than I expect, but it fades quickly to a light cap of foam. Clean on the glass with no lace. Aroma is lacking. I get a hint of what I would expect from a BSDA, but little more. And the taste. If I were to do this blind I seriously doubt I could distinguish this from any of my favorite Belgian ales in this category. Perfect balance. Bready with dark fruit mixed in. Nice. Excellent carbonation and medium body. Finish is just barely dry. Just enough. Maybe a touch thin.
