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.

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

Very dark with a large frothy head. Ripe dark fruit aroma with some roasted smokey tones. Was amazed to find this readily available in my home town. Awsome brew.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2003 This beers seems to taste better halfway through the glass everytime I have one. It has a malty sweet taste with a slight fruity aroma. Very nice body and mouthfeel. Good touch of Belgium malts and has a discernable candi sugar flavor. And now accessible at the local bar - good job Drafting Room. Unibroue should be proud. One of many fine brews.

I truly enjoyed this unique Unibroue creation. To me, Trois Pistoles would be similar to a combination of a sparkling and port wine concoction. This beer is explosive when it hits your mouth; it has a marvelous citrus/fruit aroma, and a splendorous body. A must try, I will absolutely be retesting this beer.

Sweet-vinous-tangy aroma of caramel malts, cotton candy, moderate spice, and maybe some kind of roast/toast. Getting a bit of turning fruit in the aroma as well. Sweet with a smooth finish of light caramelized sugar.

Fantastic, just a great taste. Stays with you for a strong late bite. Nice color, excellent dark, but not too heavy beer.

A very good belgian ale. Fruity aroma with a cool reddish brown color.Spicy pear/apple flavor gives way to alcohol towards the end.Suprisingly smooth going down. Head is small. finish is fairly subtle. A great beer!
