750ml bottle poured into a goblet. Bottled C04102225Q (March 4, 2010).
A: Reddish brown body topped with a pillowy 1 1/2 finger head that has a little bit of a red tint to it. Head drops out pretty quick but leaves a nice cap. Alcohol legs are apparent.
S: Smells wonderful. Dark and light fruit. Plum, cherry, pear, raspberry and passion fruit. Some floral hops.
T: Lush fruitiness. Taste follows the aroma closely and it works together beautifully. Alcohol present in the finish which is a pleasantly tannic.
M: It’s a sipper and a great one at that. Body is medium, carb soft and finish is astringent.
O: Really nice and complex. Up there with the best Belgian darks available. Will definitely re-visit soon.

Not sure when or where I first had this one. Also not sure why I never rated it, but oh well.
Dark reddish-brown pour with a foamy off-white head that retains well and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malts and sugars, fruitcake and spice. Lots of dark dried fruit in the taste, raisins, plums, figs, sugary malts, a dash of spice and hoppy bitterness with a slight alcohol bite. Medium body and decently smooth. Nice overall.

Nose of plums, caramel, prunes, burnt sugar, and some toffee. Taste is sweet, grapes, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruit and molasses. This is awesome, one of my favorite Unibroue beers, maybe my favorite. Good stuff. I feel like there's some ginger and cinnamon in there too.

Side poured from a bottle into a Chimay chalice with standard vigor.
Appearance - Cool packaging, with the dragon and all on the front. Plus, I think my country ass interprets the name as "Three Pistols" in French, which of course is cool. Anyway, pours a deep dark brown, possibly a black, that is not at all transparent. Although the head is small, it leaves wicked lacing throughout the drink and stays with the beer for the entire glass.
Smell - Are you kidding me? I smelled this thing and identified it as a Belgian Strong Dark while I was pouring it, the smell was so stout. The first thing I thought was "wow that smells like Chimay Blue." Dark fruits, some malts, and spicy yeasts are the main smells. Outstanding, could not be improved on.
Taste - I damn near gave this a 5. The dark fruits assault the palate first, with the malts and spices offering a nice counterpunch to the plums, raisins, black cherries, and more.
Mouthfeel - Creamy, rich, a stout spicy zing at the end with the alcohol to remind you that this is not a beginners beer. I really enjoyed this beer.
Overall - Excellent job. This beer belongs even higher than the #7 or whatever spot it occupies on the Belgian Strong Dark Ale top 100 list. It rivals Chimay, but falls just a hair short of that. I was rooting through my beer fridge wanting something dark to sip on, and I found a doozy in this beer. Very well put together.
