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.

Dark brown, fluffy bubbling head. Flavors were plum, fig, rum, clove, and towards the end big time chocolate. This was complex and I will seek it out again.

Cloudy dark brown with a head that vanishes all too quickly. Initial impressions of wheat, banana, clove, and a little hop. A really great Belgian-style Grand Cru from Canada.

Had some of this at a Unibroue tasting this week, and realized that it had been so long since I’d had it last that I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed it. Beautiful purple-black colour, spicy malt and dark fruit in the nose and flavour, ending with a warm alcohol glow. Lovely stuff, I really should drink it more often.

Wow. Very dark and hoppy. Roasted malts are apparent, and blend nicely with the silky belgian feel. This beer put a hurting on me after only two......not the 750 ml bottles. I got a six pack of 330 ml. I like belgian styles with roasted malts.

Strange Brew (157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2002
Beautiful blackcurrant colour with a nose of malt,yeast, spices and, of course, alcohol. Complex flavour though the alcohol is more evident than in many other of Unibroue’s strong-but-smooth brews.

"Great bouquet" says Bill. Yeasty and fruity nose - rather strong. Dark maroon color and a low tight head with good retention. A big mix of tastes: yeast, spices, berries (black currants) and licorice. Got a slightly napkiny aftertaste though. Medium body and a great balance. Powerful quality beer.

Very intense and complex nose. Malt, alcohol, dates, cherries, dough. Dark body with a light layer. Yeast, also plums taste. Smooth. Well done

this pours like a pumpernickel liqueur: a st. bernard dog of deep brown with a ruby russet glow cutting through the murk of yeast. the head is a big bubbled, mocha sofa cushion. the nose too tells initially of that big wash of root beer bubbles. once it settles, aromas rise bearing gifts of dried fruits and woody incense, lemon and spiced cakes. it’s too aggressively carbonated right out of the bottle and needs a time out. while waiting one may choose to admire the subtle scent of sarsaparilla root that can be found just to the left of the abundant clove. flavor of soft brown apples, butter and english muffins. a sweetness best appreciated at the cerebral apex of the evening, whilst puffing luxuriously and dreamily on a cuban monte cristo pyramid.

A cloudy belgian wheat beer, a little on the alcoholy tasting unlike other Unibroue brew. Good looking but a little hard to drink.

I’m not a huge fan of high alcohol content beers, and Trois Pistoles falls into that category. Belgian wheat aroma. Beautiful deep red hue, with off-white, creamy, lasting head. Sweet and flavorful. Although alcohol is noticeable, it is not as overbearing as a 9% ABV brew normally is. Solid, but is borderline hard to drink.
