Dark chocolate and plums. Not a lot of yeast character nor is there much head and lacing. Solid, tasty beer but lacking the depth of a true Belgian beer.

Serving: On tap, tulip
Served: 10 May 2014

Appearance: Pitch black with an off-white, tannish head that leaves a ring of foam clinging around the sides of the glass. No lacing, likely due to the ABV.

Smell: Assertions of overripe banana and roasted coffee.

Taste: Much like the nose. The taste was very smooth for a style that is easy to modify and mess up. I liked the softness from the overripe banana flavors combined with the confident assertion of some roasted malt flavors. In all through, the flavor profile in my opinion, was dominated by the overripe banana qualities.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and silky. Very big bodied.

Overall: I might actually prefer this to the much higher acclaimed Tripel. This beer was very much to-style and was fantastically brewed. This one tastes a lot like Trois Pistoles.
