COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

That "very complex" flavor that you all are trying to describe: Bactine. Thats right, the topical antiseptic available at most drug stores. If you don't believe me then go to your medicine cabinet and take a long pull of bactine then drink the Trios Pistoles. You will see that they taste the same. This beer is way overrated. Don't get me wrong:it's not bad. Just too sweet and fruity for me I guess along with the medicinal aftertaste. I'll save my money next time, $8.99 for a 4 pack is kind of ridiculous.

Has a very strong dried fruit aroma. Almost like a fruit roll-up smell. Definitely has a cherry aroma. Cloudy deep red in color with an off white head. Fruity, malty, sweet, and spicy body. Very complex. It is hard to pick out all of the different flavors. Left a strong cherry after tase in my mouth. A very enjoyable belgian strong.

This brew poured a large invigorating tan head with fine-small bubbles that quickly dissolved. The lacing was sparse on the sides of my glass. The body was a reddish brown. The aroma was fruity and sweet. This brew had a smooth taste and a good mouthfeel. I REALLY, REALLY enjoyed drinking this brew!! Do we have more of this one thedm??

This brew poured an envigorated large head of fine to medium sized bubbles that left little lacing and lasted a good length of time. Its body was a very cloudy semi-opaque deep brown color. It has a very nice strong malt aroma and a very smotth initial flavor that finishes much more complex than it starts. its high alcohol content is well hidden in its flavor. The flavoe is very hard to describe. It is highly complex with a lightly fizzy, tongue tingling sensation of malts and spices. Extremely good brew. I will definately try this again in one of their larger bottles.

Very dark, strong aroma with lots of fruity tastes. Each sip you get so many flavors hard to detect. Very malty

Medium brown color. Somewhat sweet aroma, flavor has plenty of sugar. Lots of cherry and malt flavors. It does resemble an aged wine. The beer continues to get better as it warms. Great beer.

Excellent. Great job of masking the alcohol. Very cloudy brown hue. Sweet, fruity, and malty. Lots of carbonation, with good head. Great aftertaste. I'd swim in this if I could afford to. Love it.

One of the best I've tasted since a long time. Very sugary and virtually no alcohol taste even if its 9% Some fruity notes at the end too.

One of my new favorites. Its been a while since I had a good beer like this. Very roasted aroma and initial tatse, aftertaste of malt and sugar. Absolutely wonderful brew, no complaints here. Very similar to some of the Fuller's Vintage Ales in my opinion, but with a more bitter and roasted flavor. I love it.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2003 definitely didnt expect this... tho most of the unibroue brews are good, but this one was exceptional, the aroma was nothing to to jump about - but it did have a fruity scent to it, a dark reddish brown that was extremely cloudy, nice thick head to it, the flavor was spectacular - mild fruit essence - strong carbonation - nice malty sweetness, the flavor seemed to get better over the length of the bottle
