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.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2014 Bière brune rouge, bien voilée, très effervescente, et surmontée d’un col brunâtre, dense et résistant. Arômes de levure belge (typiquement Unibroue!), pain légèrement grillé, caramel, léger chocolat, épices (anis, clou de girofle, muscade, piment de la Jamaïque…), fruits foncés bien mûrs (du raisin surtout, mais aussi des prunes et des cerises noires), et même de la banane. Nez riche et très complexe, belle intensité, très agréable, ça met en appétit! En bouche, pétillement élevé sur la langue, breuvage bien mousseux, onctuosité intéressante au palais. Au goût, domination de la levure et des épices, avec une pointe d’alcool, le tout donnant un effet très chaleureux en bouche. Aussi, saveurs de pain légèrement grillé, caramel, léger chocolat, avec des fruits foncés significativement plus subtils en bouche qu’au nez. L’amertume est plutôt faible, mais tout de même bien présente. Belle complexité, intensité adéquate, excellente bière. On dit que le vieillissement est très bénéfique à cette bière. Personnellement, j’ai dégusté de la Trois-Pistoles vieillie jusqu’à 3 ans et 9 mois que j’ai trouvé moins pétillante et moins amère, pour un résultat plus doux, plus velouté, plus rond et plus harmonieux. En vieillissant, les saveurs maltées de fruits foncés, de caramel et de chocolat deviennent un peu plus évidents, mais on ne peut pas dire que ça change significativement la personnalité de la bière cependant.

bananas, raisins, figs, rather a sugar bomb (a minus for me) but it's got a hint of tartness and vanilla to add some dimension

Une petite double, correcte. Il y a une certaine amertume, mais pas trop agressant. Bon rapport qualité / prix. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From Jan 2007 Poured from 12oz bottle, uh, whoa there! After a couple of seconds, it shot out of the bottle like crazy but I didn't lose much. ;^) The colour is a dark brown with, um, a huge head of foam that shrank slowly throughout the session leaving a fine broken layer with lots of lacing. The smell is partly dark fruit(plum), yeast, and sweet malt that quite pleasant to the nose. The taste is quite fruity up front, the plum I mentioned, a bit of banana, then there's some clove moving in with some nice yeasty flavour. Nice. The alcohol is noticeable but not objectionable and I get a nice tart smack right at the finish. A very nice sipper to have, for sure. Bottom line: A nice tasty example of the style that does pack some punch so sip on it at your leisure. ;^) Thanks go out to Wasatch for providing this!

Malt et sucre candy au nez. Ronde à souhait, mais délicate, avec une note fruitée. Alcool et sucre se dissipent tranquillement pour laisser une touche de torréfaction. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(rouille très sombre, nez discret, parfaite en texture, saveur, amertume, sucre, bulles)

I've had this beer in the past, yet never took the time to rate it. So, I went to my local beer store and bought a caged and corked bottle, and it tasted not how I remembered it. Why? Likely because it's two years past date, which explains why the bottle was so inexpensive. Therefore, this review is skewed; I will redo this one with a fresh bottle, when I find one. As for what I poured....it was amber-brown in color with no head or lacing. Aroma: brown sugar, cherries. Flavor: the above, with brown bread, dark dried fruits, and wet newspaper (the unpleasant part of the flavor profile -- obviously because of its age and storage...not cellared). Mouthfeel: medium-bodied.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2017 Definitely need to let this one warm up a bit. I am having a hard time describing this one. It is fairly complex and kind of unique. Lightly carbonated. You don't notice the alcohol much even though it is 9%. It is far from my favorite quad but it is pretty good. Second tasting 3-8-16. This time I much enjoyed sipping it cold. Notes of raisin and plum. Spicy notes, pepper? Strong Belgium Yeast notes. Definitely becomes more subtle and complex as it warms. Quite enjoyed it this go-round Had it a couple of times this year and have not really cared for it. I knocked it down from a 4.5 to a 3.5 and removed it from my favorites l 10-31-17 I had it after drinking a brother Thelonius. Quite enjoyed it. Raising it back to a 4.

12oz bottle, thx RB. Pours dark brown with reddish edges and a dense, lasting beige head with good lacing. Aromas of dark dried fruit, burnt sugar, sweet malt, molasses, apples and oranges. Dark, sweet stewed fruit flavors, toffee, earth, roasted malt, cocoa, prunes, raisins. Full bodied with high carbonation. Long delicious fruit and roasted malt finish. Well-hidden alcohol.
