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.

Golly. I was floored by the price then floored by the taste. I won't go into articulating all the freekin' raisins, chocolate, and pears while others can broil up that bafflegab better than I can. Alls I no is that it was delicious, beautiful looking with a commendably stellar head of foam, and remarkably easy to quaff into the second giddy round. I'm going to look into making something like this for my private stash for sure. If anyone's got a 5-gallon recipe that they've tried and would happily share, I would be eternally grateful.

I love their romantic medieval labels.
Dark brown color with lots of beige thick head with eternal retention and good lacing.
Nice sour aroma but counter balanced by a sweet nutty and vanilla smell with hints of figs and Belgian yeast.
Very interesting taste. Sweet flavor of slightly toasted malts, brown sugar, plums and raisins with some sourness and earthy hops. Hints of pepper and mild port wine finish. Dry and warming aftertaste.
Medium body with an effervescent carbonation. 9% ABV is completely hidden at first, that starts to show its claws, but it is perfectly harmonic.
What an excellent beer, complex, robust, not tiresome, even refreshing at 9%ABV. Awesome.
