UPDATED: SEP 29, 2003 bottle-tucson beer fest- the guy running the Unibroue table at the fest had a bottle of this that you have to specifically ask for a sample of this one. squidget and i both sampled this highly carbonated, dark, complex brew and both said "this could be dangerous". The brew is highly carbonated, soft palate and high alcohol-a lethal combo. lots of fruits and spice.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Pours a dark brown, with little head or lacing. Very complex aromas of sweet malts and fruits. Flavor is very enjoyable, fruits and spice. Damn fine belgian.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Pours very dark for a belgian strong. Nice head with not much lacing. Aroma is full of complex malt flavors, detectable hops, bubblegum, slightly vinous. Flavor is sweet but aged with malt. Alcohol is hidden well but the feeling is there. Finishes slightly vinous for the style. Overall this is a great belgian, one of the best. There are some negative qualities to this

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Just a beautiful beer. Pours very dark black color, with a huge tan head, that fades into a nice creamy cover over the top, with some really sparse but nice lacing. The aroma is very powerful and complex as is the taste. Aroma is slightly winey, with the obvious grape smell, and lots of maple syrup, that follows into the taste. The taste is almost like a flat soda, kind of cherry coke like. Lots of grapes and cherries in the flavor, with a sour bite on first sip, complex flavors then a finish that balances everything out and you catch the sweetness. Very highly recommended.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2003
Very dark with a small head. Light roasted coffee and choclade aroma. The taste is as the aroma just much more intense. The taste is quite soubtle compared to Belgian equivalents but I like that as a change. Light spicy roasted taste with hints of coffee and choclade. So far the best Unibroue I have had.

Dark black color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is dark fruit, bready, yeasty, sweet and spicy. A medium to full bodied Belgian Strong Ale. Malts are dark, fruity and sweet. Yeasts are spicy and bright. Like many of Unibroue beers. Also typical is the complex blend of flavors. The fruits, spices and chocolate flavors all compete and blend into a complex mélange of tastes that mark this as an exceptional beer. Very smooth taste. The only negative point is there is a very definite alcohol bite at 10.5%. Very definite belly warmer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is fruity and sweet.

TimE (3900) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 At 10.5% it is a very big beer with VERY complex flavours. It has a nice spicy port aroma, with a complex maderia taste with hints of caramel, and chocolate, not as yeasty as other Unibroue beers and warm spicy rum like finish. Rerate

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2006 Bottle dated 06-06-2002 on the bottle. Rated May, 2006. I didn’t think the check the cork date. Shared by GregClow. Black body, small tan head. Muted aroma, dark fruit. Fruity dark malt, light notes of licorice. Medium palate. 3+ Pleasant but lacks transcendance. I found my last sampling of Trois Pistoles to have a touch more complexity that the Terrible. 7/3/7-8/3+/16 - 3.7 <P> 2003 Vintage 2-03 bottle tasted 11-04. Dark black body with a bid off white head and decent lacing on the glass. Alcoholic aroma with some malt and dark fruits. Rich and malty with a slight touch of anise or licorice. Pleasant aftertaste, warming. Nice palate. Not as fabulous as my memory of it, though I seem to have rated it about the same. 7/4/7/4/17 - 3.9<P> Original Rating The bottle was a year old. Pitch black, aroma was muted but nice. Very smooth mouthfeel. Bit of alcohol in the finish. Dangerously easy to drink. Nicely malty. 7/5/8/4/17 - 4.1
