Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine ! Is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. It can be compared to an old porto and is brewed from well roasted malt.

Did you know that "Trois Pistoles" is French for "Three Pistoles"? just a litlle factoi to enhance your enjoyment of this beer. You can thank me later. Anyway, Its dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is like a cherry cordial - chocolate and cherry. Initial taste is a woodsy bitternessand a subtle wine fruitiness. Earthy, messy finish. As you continue to drink, a mellow walnut / burnt pecan flavor emerges. Enjoyable drinking experience.

Gift from Nuffield. Creamy and fizzy with a gentle sweetness. Tastes like a Chimay clone. Not my thing.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Deep hazy mahogany with hints of ruby, an effervecent head with excellent lacing. Aroma is delicious, almost like a dopplebock with notes of apple cider, fig, raisin and cherry. A slight musky hop presence is detectable too. Flavor is sweet and refreshing, dark fruit and bitterness override the palate. Very complex with a nice malty finish, very rich.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2003 An amazing complex belgian, I expected alot from this one and it delivered on every front. The pour is beautiful, a dark extremely cloudy barleywine - esque appearance. Very little lacing, with a strong aroma and a fizzy soda like head. The taste that come out of each sip are so vastly different and complex. Everything from dates and figs and raisins, to dark fruits to complement the darkness of the style. Very winey, like a port, this would go nicely after dinner or on a cold winter night sitting around a fire. Has the ability to warm you up and put a smile on your face. The aroma alone is something to marvel over, you could just sit there and take in the aroma for quite awhile. I cannot wait to try this one again. Thanks Trappist!

I simply love this beer. Has a great rich, fruity flavor and a wild finish. Alcohol flavor is a litle strong but in no way harsh. Great Beer!

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Almost black in color. When held up to the light, it has a slightly red glot to it. Large frothy head that began to fizzle away immediately. Fruity aroma with a complex taste of fruits, spices and a bit of yeast.

bierkoning (12918) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 Red brown color, cloudy, frothy head. Excellent lacing. Cherry aroma. Fairly thin for such a strong beer. Cherry flavor, rather alcoholic with vanilla and a hint of sourness. A better thirst quencher as you might expect with the high alcohol content. Good beer, but IMO doesn't deserve the high rating. Or did I miss something? Re-rate: tap Caf Morshuis Albergen. Buttery aroma and flavor. Apple. The high ABV is hardly noticed. Butterscotch. Diacetyl. Likeable but better from the bottle. The above rating is for the bottled version.

This beer pours a really dark amber color with a medium dingy head that fades quickly. The aroma is very sweet and promising of a good taste. Upon first taste, this reminds me of a very sweet wheat beer. It has hints of fruit in the taste and the carbonation is very apparent when drinking, but overall it reminds me of a really smooth wheat beer. It is not excessively smooth to drink and it is pretty flavorfull. I could not see myself drinking more than one of these at a sitting because of the fullness of the flavor and the fact that I am not too fond of it. Nothing special about it in my opinion.

Attractive dark color. Fruity aroma with a like flavor. Has a raisin like taste. Sweet, has notes similair to a Port wine. Not being a Port wine lover, I'll take this anyday.
