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.

Re-Rate 12/31/02: The pour a deep murky plum color, the head Bunyanesque and the texture spumous, the lace a sticky thick clinging sheet that completely obscures the glass. Aroma of malt, hints of ripe fruit I like to say plums, sweet and quite a clean and fresh nose. Malt dominates the start, sweet and the top middling in feel, finish is stingingly acidic, hops robust and plentiful, quite dry aftertaste also long lasting. The high ABV makes this a fine winter warmer, and a good beer to sample on “New Year’s Eve”. Ranks #189 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Damn fine. Kind of like Chimay Bleu, only yeastier and with a quicker finish. Beautiful to look at.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2003 Pours a lacy head and a reddish-copper body. Excellent aroma and flavour, hints of fruit and spice and fairly similar to La Maudite. The finish leaves a slight alcohol burn and a lasting Port wine taste. Very nice. God I love being Canadian!

I find this beer to be a lot like Westy 12 in that it’s a bit too sweet for my liking and there isn’t enough creativity in disguising the alcohol. Extremely strong nose with a fruity aroma as promised in the commercial description, great pouring beer with medium head and body. Very fruity palate with traces of raisins and spices. The comparisons to port wine are on the money although I couldn’t distinguish between a tawny or a ruby port... I did a side by side sampling against Chimay Red and White and I preferred the Chimay White.

Just had the Maudite before this. I’m a dark beer person but I like the Maudite better. It was a little smoother and weeter. It salso masked the alcahol a little beter. This one is a little less drinkable. Excellent beer, but I had the Maudite before it. Trois Pistoles is a little drier without the burst of fruitiness the Maudite had

Decent head from the pour but does not last long. Good carbonation throughout. Excellent color and clarity of dark red/brown. Somewhat fruity aroma initially then the alcohol kicks in. Not a beer for the faint of heart. Warms you as you drink it. Hints of a rich wine taste. Finishes smooth and clean and with an alcohol kick. Definately a sipping brew. Excellent brew and one to savor.

Dark brown/purple color, with a rather thin head. Aroma was nice, although difficult to pick out anything in particular besides alcohol hints. Rather heavy flavor with hints of raisens and maybe dates. The alcohol comes through stronger than expected. Very good overall flavor.

Cloudy, brown body with a huge, tan, rocky head. All yeast and bananas/clove in the nose. Lots of yeast and banana on the tongue with no hop presence. Alcohol is well hidden. This has to be one of the best Belgians made this side of the pond. Can’t wait until I try some other Unibroue brews!

12/21/02: bottle. nice thick creamy head, with fair amount of lacing. yeasty smelling. hints of banana and high evidence of yeast. i know that this is a beer of high quality, but for some reason i just don’t get it with belgians.
