4.01/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle dated: Best by 01/17/16

Pours cloudy dark brown with a one inch khaki head that fades away to a thick ring and leaves strands of lace.

The smell begins with Autumn-like spices up front followed by plum and dark cherry with a hint of toffee on the finish.

The taste is of dark fruit (plum, cherry and raisin) followed by molasses and dark malt with a hint of clove on the back end.

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Dark fruit and spices dominate the flavor. This is a solid Belgian dark.

Poured into a Chimay goblet, it came out a deep slightly cloudy ruddy brown. A small amount of light gets through towards the bottom. A nice thick off-white head settles in at about half a finger and lasts well throughout the beer. The aroma is rich with spices, alcohol esters, and dark fruit sweetness. The taste is a little less explosive, but mirrors the aroma closely, spice and fruit in the forefront and a little bit of alcohol in the background. It wasn't as heavy as I expected given its big aroma and taste, but it certainly isn't lacking. This is a delicious Belgian-style dark ale.

Bottle at 10°C

A - Very dark brown color reddish on the sides

S - Floral, apples, Pears, belgian yeast. Unexpected smell for a dark beer.

T - Same as smell: apples, roses, hibiscus , some brown sugar and peppery yeast. It not that sweet and very easy drinking.

M - Light to medium. Could use more body. The only weak aspect to me.

O: Very nice. It is an unusual interpretation of a belgian strong dark ale. Cant wait to try this again. It is a pity that this isn't being imported to Brazil.

12 oz. bottle poured into a footed goblet

Pours a deep dark rosewood with a slight translucent glow. When held to the light I can barely see my hand on the other side of the glass. One finger of soft cream-colored foam retains a consistent cap and light lacing. Aroma includes a lot of fruit and roasted dark malt. Banana, dates, figs and tart grapes stand out the most. Unibroue's signature yeast spice makes its presence known as well.

The flavors deliver what the nose advertised. Soft dark fruit and a faint sournness of fermented grapes ride a smooth malt backbone to a crisp dry finish. Only a very mild earthy hop bitterness is noticeable. Body is medium with a slick clean feel. Perhaps a bit on the fizzy side but the carbonation definitely gives it a unique texture.

Probably my favorite dark Unibroue offering. Has some wine-like qualities and I love how it flirts with malty sweetness without getting syrupy or cloying. The smoothness is a little dangerous at 9%, but makes it a perfect after dinner beer or nightcap sipper.

750ml bottle into a tulip. From notes.

A: Pours a dark ruby color with some impressive carbonation. The head is two fingers high, and off-white in shade. Texture wise, it looks extremely fizzy (like soda) and has very poor retention. No lacing is left behind.

S: Wow, this is really spicy. While the yeast dominates, the subtle notes of chocolate and brown sugar help give it some depth. The more it warms up, the more I notice its impressive dark fruit notes, and the more I like it. Nitpick: the yeastiness could be toned down slightly.

T: It starts off very fruity - mostly dark fruits, but there are hints of cherries as well. Bready, spicy yeast builds up slightly in the middle before a caramel and chocolate finish. While a bit simple, it's also very pleasant and easy to enjoy. Actually, I shouldn't call it simple: pour in the dregs, and this becomes a richer, more complex offering, varying some of the malt and ester notes beyond caramel and dark fruits, respectively.

M: Holy frig, this is drinkable and light. Not only that, it's surprisingly clean, without a hint of the 9% coming through. The dry finish and healthy carbonation means one could be inclined to chug this - but why would you want to? With the dregs, the body becomes fuller, the cleanliness goes away, and the finish becomes a little sweeter.

O: A lot of people seem to dislike Unibroue's yeast profile - I'm not one of them. As always from Unibroue, the alcohol is concealed marvelously, without sacrificing anything in the way of richness or depth. Thank cripes this is very readily available, because I'll definitely drink this again.

Poured from a bottle into a plastic running water bottle--just fished a 5-mile training run and no glassware in sight. Develops a 2cm tan head, then thick clinging lacing. Te aroma is incredible--plums, figs, malt, a bit of hops. The flavor is very rich with dark roasted malt, fruit, and hops. The mouthfeel is the only part that I an not extatic about--it's a bit too foamy for me. Overall a truly outstanding ale that I am very glad to have sampled.

3.51/5  rDev -17%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed out of a 11.5 oz brown bottle with silver foil covering the neck and cap and an obscure looking code right where the curve of the neck begins. A little internet sleuthing tells me that this code means mine was bottled March 8th, 2012, so about one year old. Poured into a Boulevard Smokestack Series chalice.

Appearance - Pours a deep, dark tree bark brown with just a hint of chestnut color around the very edges. Head is a half finger of ecru colored foam made of tight-knit microbubbles. Retention is excellent, maintaining that level of head for quite awhile before eventually subsiding as sparse film across the surface. Lace is watery and almost nonexistent.

Smell - The initial aroma isn't terribly good, with notes of generic dark fruit and some nondescript spices, like nutmeg that is too old to retain it's aromatic depth. There is a slight hint of fennel, but also a somewhat off-putting smell that reminds me of smoked meat or soy. That part does not seem like it's supposed to be part of the bottle, and although faint, it's discord is amplified by the fact that the other rich elements that you expect from the style are not strongly present.

Taste - After some warmth, the taste is considerably better than the smell, but not good enough to overcome that initial impression. Notes of dates, dried fig, and even a slight hint of raisin, along with the same faded spice notes that I picked up from the smell. On the positive side, the underlying hint of soy has gone by the wayside, and I'm not really sure how that would happen.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied and low-to-moderate carbonation. Slightly slick overall feel that makes me wish there was more carbonation to cut through.

Overall, this one just doesn't stack up to other BSDAs that I've had the chance to sample--not even Unibroue's other offering in the style, Maudite. Admittedly, they are very different takes on a somewhat broadly interpretable style, but I would choose that one over this one any day of the week. Luckily, they do enough other outstanding beers that this one doesn't bother me--you can't be perfect all of the time.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip. The bottle immediately began foaming upon uncapping, fizzing like a cola. Bad bottle?

A: Dark black with some deep red amber highlights to light. No head to speak of, it was like pouring a coca-a-cola, fizzy but no foam or head to speak of.

S: Dark fruit esters, figs, raisins. Dark malt. Clove. Subtle acetic acid.

T: Malt profile that seems way to sweet, otherwise pretty characterless. Ester overload. Dark fruit again, raisins, grapes, figs. After taste a lingering grape / grape seed. The esters really carry this beer...

M: Thin and over-carbonated. Maybe my bottle got a high dextrose load (is this done commercially?), I really can't explain this fizz, its awful.

O: Much too sweet for the style, the yeast esters are excellent but a little overpowering. I typically expect a dryer finish, a little more body, and WAY less carbonation.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured bottle into a tulip glass. The best part of this beer is the pour. Beautiful coloring with a big, think creamy head. The head does quickly dissipate, but very nice to look at while it lasts. There the glass sits, dark brown, stoic, confident, patient.

S: Picked up the ripe fruits. Bananas, dates and figs come to the forefront. Various spices finish off the aroma.

T: 9% alcohol, but you would never know it. Very easy drinking, molasses and a sweetness in the front. The carbonation is present when you taste, which is unexpected. Dark fruits, bananas and spices present throughout.

M: Smooth, evenly coating the taste buds. The beer is effortless. It's doing a simple job and doing it well. No tricks or gimmicks, just consistent performance. It's the Rod Carew of beers.

O: I've had the La Fin Du Monde and now this from Unibroue and starting to form a very favorable opinion of their brewery. I love their straightforward approach and would recommend this beer should you come across it.

12oz bottle into clean tulip glass, looks superb! Dark mohagany with a light brown-white head. Little spice on the nose, as well as the palate. Dark fruits as well as a little nuttiness throughout. Very smooth for the abv, Unibroue is very unique with the packaging which adds a little to the stigma of this Dark Ale. Great brew, cheers!

4.49/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours the color of molasses with a bountiful head of tan froth. The invigorating aroma features clove, nutmeg, orchard fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Shark jaw lacing persists after each sip.

The taste is full and alive, with a bountiful melange of spices including the aforementioned clove, nutmeg, and possibly coriander. The malt profile offers raisin, prune, brown sugar, and bubblegum. Both spice and sweetness are there in abundance, but they're exquisitely balanced, making for an delicious, impactful brew with great staying power. A hint of alcohol finally begins to manifest in the finish as the beer warms. The lively carbonation accentuates the spices and brings a luscious, prickly mouthfeel, especially on the back end.

This is one of my all time favorite Belgian ales and was a gateway beer for me when it comes to the whole craft brewing phenomenon. To call any beer flawless is a tall order, but I must confess I have a really difficult time identifying any here.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Color is very dark cola, almost no light penetration with an insanely thick fluffy white head even with a gentle pour.

Smell is your standard quad notes-fig, raisin, plum and brown sugar with alcohol and spicy yeast phenols.

Taste is similar to the nose except it is more complex than many standard quads. I get notes of peach, melon and citrus as well as strong banana and confectioner's sugar. Amazing.

The mouth feel is full bodied and creamy but dissipates quickly on a sweet, sticky finish.

This is my personal favorite quad. In line with tradition but with a unique flair that allows it to stand out from the crowd.

Tulip glass.

A: Pours a dull, dark, dirt color with a finger of off white, foamy head. Superb retention and fat swaths of lacing.

S: Boozy fruit, waves upon waves of fruit. Raisin, cherry, loads of fig, plum. Pungent, but the flavors meld wonderfully. Really interesting aromas.

T: Same, lots of fruity malt and esters, with a little grape lingering on the off-dry finish.

M: Slightly milky, medium body, medium-high and sharp carbonation. Alcohol is not particularly noticeable.

O: Quite drinkable, super fruity, and interesting flavors which integrate very nicely. Not entirely unlike some sort of fruit cola. Very good stuff.

The beer comes in a dark brown/black color with hues of reddish mahoghany in the light. A fluffy off white head.

The aroam has semi-dried raisins, slightly tart fig and plum, spices, caramel sweetness. Some phenolic nail polish.

The beer hits with caramel sweetness and light toffee in the front. It then moves onto white raisins, a bit of sweet dark raisins, dried plums, along with clove and pepper spiciness. There’s tons and tons of carbonation in the middle. There’s a hint of alcohol as well. The finish is of a gentle fruitiness and sweetness. The finish is dry, without much lingering flavor at all.

This is my favorite Unibroue brew. There’s complexity and everything works together. There’s nice fruit flavor, but not too much sweetness. Alcohol is extremely well hidden. The carbonation scrubs at the palate leaving a lighter body than what one may expect. This drinks easily, almost like a dark cherry soda. I would argue it stands up against classic Belgian brews and even better than Rochefort 8, comparable brew.

pours nice and heavy, i got a small half finger head. Scent is nice and sweet, with some earthy tones like a damp fall forest in New England. almost like run rasin on the nose, with a little nutty finish. Taste was great, lots of malt and lots of raisin almost a sweet pumpkiny carrot cake sweetness that finishes with a mild tart. excellent beer, i really really love Unibroue and seem to fall deeper into their beers after each dabble.

I'll try not to be too giddy over this beer, but damn it's so good.
The first time I tried it was an accidental pairing with a cajun bleu cheese burger in Coralville, IA, and I've been hooked ever since.

I'm not sure there is a better beer at hiding the ample alcohol content found in Trois.
From start to finish it's impossible to find a flaw in this beer's characteristics. Distinct notes of plum and a satisfying body allow this beer to be drank with multiple foods, but I'll always remember my first time as the best.

12 oz. bottle from Gator Beverage in Gainesville. Pours a deep dark brownish purple with a nearly two finger creamy off white to khaki head. Big time dark fruit aroma , candy sugar, molasses, spicy Belgian yeast funk, as expected. Flavor is sweet and fruity up front with plums, cherries, pears, raisins. The finish ends with a good bit of spices that linger and play around with the sweet fruits on the tongue afterward. Medium heavy body with medium carbonation. Plenty of body but not chewy, which makes this plenty drinkable and pleasant. Nice for dessert or for anything else. Excellent BSA and there is a reason it is up there with the best of the style. Right on with all the flavors.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured out of a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Freshness date is "02-27-15."

Pours a dark, plum reddish color, complete with a foamy head at the top about two fingers high that fizzles down to a modest ring over the first minutes of consumption. Viscous in appearance, and cloudy as well. Isn't too showy, but looks good.

Contains a similar flavor profile at the front reminiscent to Maudite, with a larger focus on the spices, as well as dark fruits. For a year round offering, this flavor provides most seasonal winter warmers a run for their money: cinnamon, ginger, clove, and allspice, as well a load of black pepper at the finish. Dark fruits are very prominent, especially of the darker variety - raisins, prunes, and figs, to name a few. Finishes with a caramel/toffee flavor that melds with a mild bitterness to round out the spices and any potential sweetness. Slightly spicy, but nothing too intense. The alcohol is hidden rather well, especially at 9%. Really good - exactly what I'd expect from this brewery.

The flavor is a bit different, and is a little less heavy on the spices, as well as displaying a rigorous amount of maltiness and dried fruit character. Caramel is immediately at the front, followed by a little bit of chocolate. After, notes of raisins and prunes immediately wash away the sweetness, followed by a grainy bitterness, and a little bit of the spices mentioned earlier (cinnamon is the most predominant). The yeast is present here, especially with the bottle's age, and while the hops are faded, there is a mild herbal bitterness at the finish (which is close to black tea in flavor). Not too carbonated, but very full in character and comforting to drink. A solid dark Belgian-style ale.

This appeals to me with a bit of age as the sweetness is usually cut down dramatically with a bit of time. This delivers all the goods that a spiced, dark ale of this nature should have - dried, dark fruitiness, some spices, minimal sweetness, and little bit of that unique, wild Belgian yeasty character. This isn't even from Belgium and it's more enjoyable than half of the basic dark ales that come from there. I don't usually drink beers like this anymore but this is a very welcome addition to my cellar from time to time.

Once again an excellent offering from Unibroue! Same price as many of the other offerings from this company in Canada.... $47.00/case of 24- 341ml bottles.

A- Excellent! Dark and cloudy. Opens with the typical Unibroue pop and high carbonation. Pours with a tremendous head which tapers down to a skim after a minute. Don't get me wrong, the carbonation on this girl is insane.

S- Very good. Enjoyable slightly sickly sweet aroma.

T- Excellent! Very good dark ale. Tons of malt and yeast. cinnamon touches. Heavy. Opens with a definite note of the 9%. Not hot but you know it's there.

M- A bit grainy but otherwise pretty good. As it warms that bite gets the middle of the tongue.

O- Excellent! NOT a daily drinker nor do you want to try more than one at a sitting. Excellent offering and will stock as a regular server to guests in my cellar.

Food Pairing

Trois Pistoles will match very well with... Beef Stew

The rich meaty nature of stew will match Trois Pistoles rather well. The Cinnamon will accent the carrot sugar and savory beef cut well.

Enjoy!

Appearance: murky ochre with thick khaki head, decent lacing.

Aroma: classic mix of Belgian yeast and cloves which comes off smelling like coca cola.

Mouthfeel: smooth, weightless

Taste: cloves, spices, molasses, burnt brown sugar with a sage like bitterness.

Notes: Perhaps the most authentic Belgian, not brewed in Belgium that I have had.

750ml corked and caged bottle into a Westvleteren XII chalice. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a foamy 1 finger light cream colored head that dissipates quickly. Beer is a clear, dark mahogany-brown. No lace. Below average considering the style.

Nose is sugary sweet. Grape, plum, and coca-cola. Molasses and spice too. Moderately aromatic. Solid.

Opens dark fruit. Plum, fig and grape. Some molasses, cocoa and nuttiness in the middle. Clove and other spices too. Brown sugar, honey, chocolate and more molasses at the end. Dark fruit mixed in the finish and aftertaste. Lightly boozy. Infinitely complex and very enjoyable.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and bubbly in the mouth and goes down aggressive and crisp. Finishes accented with a lingering, pleasant finish.

This is certainly a very well made beer. Very complex with a feel that really supports the flavor. Worth trying and I'm curious to see what a bit of age does to this one.

Sampled last night on 12/4/13. Single bottle (12ounce?) was chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler. Poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a very dark brown and is almost black in color. Has a 2-finger tan head that left some good lacing when sipped. The aroma is of cocoa with some dark fruits and some roasted malt. The taste was even better than the aroma and is very complex actually. Has a light smokey finish which is nice. No harsh or bitter aftertaste and goes down too easy. With the high alcohol, after a few of these you will be buzzin' real good. LOL! A great brew overall.

I really like this beer. This one is very dark with almost no translucence. The head is a solid two fingers and is a devilish deep red color.

This brew is extremely good. I gave up soda years ago but this beer reminds of a coca cola.

Overall very happy with this one. Definitely worth saving a spot in the fridge for a bottle..or two.
