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.

One of the very best Unibroues out there. Fruity aroma and a nice very dark brown appearance. Medium sweetness with no bitterness--with hints of plums and malt. Its sort of like if you mixed Fin du Monde with a strong ale-- a bit darker and a bit more substantial, but not heavy and still certainly a Belgian at heart.

Purchased a while back at Market Street and I have been waiting to imbibe with great anticipation. Trois Pistoles only emphasizes why Belgian styles are so great. The cork comes out with a pop and I get a pour into my Chimay glass of an alluring inky dark body with a persistent eggshell-white head. The nose is dark fruit and spices. The taste builds on the smell, I get ripe red plum, raisin, clove, a hint of coriander with a nice finishing touch of bitterness. Very involved. An adult appeal. This shoots up to be one of my all-time favorites.

Great long lasting dark Belgium style beer. Very long in the mouth with sweetish finish.

Unibroue, ah! Unibroue, merci de mavoir rendu alcoolique a un jeune ge! Sincrement. Merci! Sinon, je serais devenu quun pauvre poivrot accro a la Budweiser jimagine. Et oui, je suis votre brasserie depuis ces tout dbuts, dans les annes 90, jai pu constater les bires qui on perdu de leur gabarit (fin du monde et maudite) mais voici lexception qui tient encore la route la tte haute: La trois-pistole. Premirement, cette bire est brune et non noire, quelquun connait des bires de style belge foncirement noire? La couleur approche du noir oui mais avec la lumire elle devient brune (un peu comme la Nuit dautomne de Frampton, chef doeuvre de bire brune extrmement fonce). Dans tout les cas, la Trois-pistoles est une bire de matrise totale, son amertume est adoucit avec un sucre brun quasiment fume, il y a du cacao, un peu de reglisse noir, un fond boise et malt, de mme que des pices du genre cumin, cannelle et une petite amertume de bon aloi. Seule chose que je lui reproche est un arrire got collant de houblon ou malt que lon retrouve dans toute les bires dunibroue, jimagine quil sagit dune marque de commerce, mais mme lexcellent Terrible avait ce dfaut.

RexTalionis (3705) - FINLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle. Unclear dark brown in color with an off-white head. Ripe dark fruity sweetness, hints of spicyness and vinous notes in aroma. Soft mouthfeel. Some roasted malts and brown sugary notes later on. Sweet fruityness in taste, some vinous notes and overripe plums in taste. Creamy finish with some sweetness and hints of spices. Quite nice.

Ulysse (482) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2016
Weak Aroma. Tastes like its sister the noire de Chambly but with less water and a beer can taste.
