corkyrory66 (4306) - BELGIUM - FEB 8, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2020 Quadruple de de 9 % abv et 15,5 ebu, avec malts d'orge et de blé. A cela on a ajouté : extrait de malt (??), curaçao, graines de coriandre, anis étoilé et bois de réglisse. Une bière tant attendue .. en devient presque un mythe. Mais il convient de se méfier des mythes, comme de la science-fiction ... Mon exemplaire était à 2 ans avant sa date, moins 40 jours. Couleur acajou aux reflets auburn, opacité marquée. Mousse beige, à fins flocons, stable à 3 mm. Arômes de marmelade de prunes, miel de lavande, pointe de cèdre. 1ère bouche veloutée, sur un ensemble intéressant, mais trop anisé. Arrière-bouche qui panique un peu devant l'équilibre à proposer ... 2ème bouche qui garde la belle texture, mais enfonce un peu l’équilibre … Arrière-bouche qui est de pure copie, je veux dire photocopie .. Longueur qui n'arrive pas à donner le 'plus' nécessaire à une telle aventure. On est partagé entre la frustration et la critique de l'interprétation .. Jambes fines, serrées, assez courtes. Levure correcte. Alcool sous son niveau, il pédale un peu dans la choucroute .. Finale avec des fausses notes … il ne manquait plus que ça .. CONCLUSION : une quadruple qui est en fait une pâle imitation d'une bière belge .. à laquelle le brasseur n'aurait rien compris !! Ceci est davantage une winter ale épicée qu'une quad. Il est vrai que pour trois pistoles, on ne peut pas obtenir grand-chose !! N.B. Très largement surcoté sur ratebeer … (6/3/6/3/11)

ardeo (1206) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2020 Belle bière noire avec une mousse beige à très fines bulles bien engageante. Nez : malts, fruits noirs, caramel, porto. Bouche vive, crémeuse, ronde et onctueuse avec candi, pruneau, mélasse, chocolat, épices, petite acidité. Carbonatation moyenne et finale un peu sirupeuse, amère et épicée. Je lui mettrais bien 5 Pistoles à cette quadruple dégustée dans mon verre de chez 'La Trappe' !!

dflb (327) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2020 Gifted for Christmas from Doug Theresa Aadland (purchased at BevMo from Redlands, California for $9.99), Trois Pistoles is a Belgian style dark ale brewed with spices crafted by Unibroue from Chambly, Canada. The air yields cocoa, brown sugar, plums, Belgian yeast, and cherries upon the nose. The appearance is a dark brown that pours a finger and a half of beige head. When held up to light, a dark reddish brown shows. Light reflects dark mahogany as well. The alcohol content is 9%. Brown sugar textures the mouthfeel followed by a cocoa hue. Caramel malt compliments the brown sugar complexion. Roasted malt is drawn out by the cocoa. Plums are domineering to the body and felt to the touch. Belgian yeast spices the comprehension and earthy to the malt frame. Cherries slightly tarts the take and lingers into the finish. Licorice bitters the drink and assists the brown sugar texture. Clove has a distinguishable tone to the finish. Cardamom colors the plum and caramel finish. Raisins gently sweetens the body. Trois Pistoles is a marvelous Belgian style dark ale. The brown sugar, cocoa, caramel and roasted malts, Belgian yeast, plums, cardamom, and licorice combination separates this Belgian beer from the pack. The brown sugar and licorice leaves a lasting impression and feel to the drink. The earthy and spicy Belgian yeast plays hand in hand with the licorice and the tart cherry. The cocoa and roasted malt adds depth to the body. I treasured each drink and impressed by its complexity and depth. Drinking this Belgian beer is like listening to music from verse to chorus, as in from take to finish. The finish expresses another theme that hooks you replaying over and over again every time you drink. Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

defabant (359) - ITALY - NOV 18, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2019 Colore mogano scuro, versa un dito di schiuma poco persistente. Aroma tipico di una Quadrupel, con sentori di frutti scuri, spezie, frutta candita e caramello. In bocca risulta complessa e molto ben bilanciata, sentori di frutti scuri, caramello, liquirizia e malto tostato. Finale leggermente amarognolo e speziato. Corpo medio e gradazione alcolica ben nascosta. Ottima.

17Beer (1006) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2019 12 oz. bottle. Pours a dull dark brown with a big off white head that dissipates after a few minutes. Big scents of raisins cinnamon, sherry and alcohol. Lots of carbonation with a sour acidic dry mouthfeel. Tastes of golden raisins, cinnamon and yeast that seem to fight somewhat. Warming alcohol burn comes in after a while. A christmassy brew.

El sabor sigue el mismo camino: uvas pasas, ciruelas, anís, cilantro, regaliz, oporto. Cuerpo medio/alto, dulce pero no en exceso. Una gran quadrupel de estilo belga, ya un clásico, excelente cerveza.
