Trois Pistoles

Trois Pistoles

Ratebeer 3.96 99th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +4

You know you are in for a treat with a big nose like this one. It is big and rich with prunes, raisins and yeast; it very much like sweet vermouth. The taste is also like a vermouth with cassis, raisins and so much more. The ever-present alcohol gives the mouthfeel a nice tingle and effervescence. It is very slippery and easy to drink.

Aftertaste +2

The long alcohol warmth carries prunes, wood and a raisiny syrup.

Alcohol Content +1 9%

It is everywhere but not overpowering.

Value +1

This truly is a glorious and strong beer.

Ingame Enhancement +1

All night long just L4D2 finales. It feels like I am eating the cherries off each desert at a buffet.

Overall 9/10

I never understand why there are so many of these on the liquor shelves; it should always be sold out. A big, beautiful Belgian style ale. It has it all ripe fruits, wood, spice and alcohol.
