I have been very curious about this beer for a while. After buying one to go from Brewerkz,
I have had it sit in my fridge for a while and I finally got to tasting this fine beer one
night. The Unibroue bottle is one of the more elegant looking bottles around, with a nice
silver foil round the neck and top of the bottle and the words "Unibroue" printed on the
foil. At the back of the bottle there is a silver printing which reads "L044". According
to the Unibroue website this signifies the bottling date and L represents November, 04
means 4th and 4 means 2004. Therefore my bottle is bottled on November 4, 2004. Trois
Pistoles is pronounced (Trwa-pee-stole) and is actually a place in Canada; I would not
bore anyone with any more of the history. This beer is brewed in Quebec, Canada but it
follows the Belgian Strong Dark Ale style of brewing leaving it with aromatic fruity notes.
The Trois Pistole poured out with a mild head which disspitates very quickly leaving slight
lacing. It smells subtlely of some dried or dark fruits and has a very strong taste of
those fruits. The 9 ABV goes amazingly smooth and hardly feels heavy at all if taken slow;
this strength, however, gives it great beer character on top of the great taste. The after
taste is equally fantastic though not as long lasting as I may have liked it to be. I felt
that the Trois Pistoles taste is similar to the Westmalle Dubbel, heavily fruity, but the
fruity taste in the Westmalle Dubbel is definitely stronger and, at 7 ABV is less potent
compared to the Trois Pistoles and, thus I still prefer the Westmalle Dubbel. BUt these
2 beers definitely have similarities, in my opinion. The Trois Pistole is a GREAT beer and
fully lived up to my expectation. If I had not tried the Westmalle Dubbel before this one,
I would probably be totally overwhelmed as this kind of matured, dark, very slightly sweet
fruit taste turns out to be my favourite taste (for now) in Boutique Belgian Ales.
