Trois PistolesTrois Pistoles

Brewed by:
Quebec, Canada

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A: Dark Mahaogony in color, with a very thin head that dissipates very quickly. but the darkness of this beer is so lolley that you wont ind the quickly dissipating head (which is normal for a beer this strong)

S: This beer smalls amazing, but mostly because of its very subtle nature. It smells strongly of light fruits, bubblegum (very slight amounts), spritzy citrius, and a nice solid malty sweetness to round it all off. But none of the smells overpower the other. This is easily one of the best dark belgans ales I've ever smelled

Taste: big heavy matiness, with some VERY slight hop bitterness in the after taste. It has a scary drinkable character. (no booz can be detected at all)

Mouthfeel: The beer has a huge slick, heavy moughfeel, but its offest by a perfect level of carbonation that helps thin out the heavy mouthfeel. Its a fantastic combination.

Overall. I had this beer because it was canada day and I decided that it was as good an excuse as any for a beer. All they had from canada was Unibroue...and I can safely say that I made a good decision. This beer is a good decision even if it isn't Canada day. Its one of the best black Belgian ales IVe ever had...and I cant recommend it enough.

Poured into a Guinness fluted pint glass. Half-inch head, light tan, still some left by the end of the glass. The beer is a dark, but not opaque, brown.

Smells sweet (molasses) and there's an undertone of alcohol, but not in a liquor-type way. It's enticing.

There's a warmth to this beer. It's a high ABV and that comes through, but not in an overpowering way. I get a sticky sweetness with every sip, which was nice at first but became overbearing by the end of the glass. I'd give this beer a higher score up front than in the aftertaste, but I'll round it out to 3.5.

Good body, would like it to be a bit creamier to let the flavors spread over the tongue a bit better, but it's good.

Make no mistake, this is a good beer. It's not the best offering from Unibroue, but it's worth drinking if you have the chance.
