UPDATED: NOV 5, 2003 Pours quite cloudy, and produces a nice beige head, which leaves a very nice lacing. Smells great like a dark fruit, and a floral spiciness. Tastes even better, beginning with a sweet malty taste and ending very smoothly masking the alcohol well. The tastes are the most complex I've ever experienced, of dark fruit light hops, and spice. I instantly fell in love with this beer, and as it warmed exposing its deep flavor I enjoyed it much more. Love it.

Something really must be said for beer that you cannot see through. The muddy black brown amber color is beautiful with a definite toffee candy fragrance. Little head. Taste the malts. Sweet and bitter with a smooth finish & little alcohol aftertaste. This is excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Light spicy Belgian character in both the aroma and flavor. In spite of the 9%, the flavor's malty and very smooth.

Great brew. Toffee, caramel, dark, tasty, and malty. Slightly fruity and mellow as advertised. Extremely enjoyable.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2005 Dark ruby-bronze with a huge, frothy Belgian-style beige head. Terrific fragrance that is nearly indescribable, but suggests roses, berries, and a woodshop. Pleasing complex, organic flavor. Moderately sweet flavor of nectar. Soft palate. I totally dig this beer.

Suttree (6325) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2003
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.
