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.

This is one smooth brew. Not to be drank too quickly. Complex flavoring. Well worth the money. ;)

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2003 Very fruity and complex brew.Re-rate : I don't taste the roasted malt much. Flavor is mostly of Belgian yeast and Fruity sweetness.

750mm Bottle. A strange ale that tastes of over ripened fruits. With the 9% abv, a 750 bottle will get ya pretty tanked.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2003 Spritzy grapes and soda-like flair combine with leather notes and hints of alcohol and cheese and lift themselves above a plum colored vibrancy with glorious thin brownish suds coating the glass superbly with each aroma-lifting swirl…strong yeast and malt interplay with grape tartness…restrained sweetness and nice subtle yeasty spiciness seem to sing in complete harmony with slight but delectable dusty mustiness adding to the glorious complexities that live within this here trios pistoles.

Very spicy and fruity - cherry - tastes like a well rummed cherry cola in fact. Not very beery.

Excellent, complex beer. Right in the middle of my favorite Unibroue beers. Complex flavor, but still pretty mellow, with a decent alcohol nose.

Wow. Head is initially thick but goes down fast. Aroma is that of fruit. somehow reminded me a little of raisin cinnamon breakfast pastry. alcohol content very well hidden. i couldn’t keep my hands off this one.

Murky is right...Brown appearance. Lots of particles, and great lil things floating around. Aromas of raisons and dark fruit, oak, vanilla. Vinous all the way through, alcohol and full bodied. This is great stuff, no doubt about it, a classic!
