BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Unibroue
Quebec, Canada
unibroue.com

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Drawing on Quebec folklore, Unibroue chose the name Trois Pistoles to honour the city’s historic importance and pay homage to the legend of the Black Horse. Conjured up by a priest to help build a new church, this incarnation of the devil ran off when its bridle was removed. Because construction was still underway when the horse vanished, a stone remains missing from the church to this day.

Flavor is a little thin for a strong ale. Considerably lighter than the maudite they brew. And carbonation overwhelms flavor to some extent. Carbonated to the point that you end up swallowing a fair amount of gas with each sip as it releases in the mouth (sorry, no other way to say it). By the time you swallow it your cheeks are puffed out like Gillespie at Newport. Finish is actually a bit sour. Meh. It’s OK but I much prefer their Maudite.

Look: Dark brown with some amber highlights. Decent tan head.

Smell: Sweet fruity malt, noticeable alcohol.

Taste: Sweet bread, spicy fruits, and alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness with very high, sparkly carbonation.

Overall: Very tasty and high in alcohol. What's not to love?

Brown in color and cloudy in complexion. There's a fingernail of brown around the rim and covering half of the top. I smell dark Belgian candy sugar and caramel. I'm tasting a very decadent blend of Dark Belgian candy sugar, caramel, chestnuts, and figs. The mouth is moderately carbonated and slightly warm with alcohol.
