First review: here goes.

A - Pours black or nearly so, lightening up just a bit as the lees are sent in (hey, you've gotta get your vitamins somehow). Fizzy 3/4" head that dissipates within a minute leaving virtually no lacing. Lots of tiny bubbles (thanks, Don Ho!) making their way to the surface for another couple minutes.

S - My smeller ain't so hot (I busted it) but I do detect some fruit. The fact that I can smell anything at all on this beer means it's probably got some hefty nose.

T - Very nice! Moves through about a half dozen distinct flavours including lots of malt, caramel, and a surprising hit of - is that cherry? - on the exhale, before settling into something not cloyingly sweet, with notes of bitterness balancing it off, and just a hint of alcohol - the high ABV is well hidden. Nicely complex but not overwhelming.

M - As with most Unibroues, this one feels quite alive in the mouth. It's an active but pleasing carbonation with teeny-tiny bubbles. Sharp on the front of the mouth and softer in back.

D - Trois Pistoles is medium-bodied, slightly heavier than its little brother, Maudite, and very, very drinkable. Always disappears a little faster than I want it to; very more-ish.

This one has become my daily staple (hey, I'm getting my vitamin B fix) - and I always have some on hand nowadays. I do try to limit myself to one per session - that high ABV will sneak up on you something fierce. My favourite brew from one of my favourite breweries. Merci, Chambly!
