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.

12oz foiled, screw-cap bottle served unapologetically in pint glass. Best before 10-26-15. Beer is dark brown with hints of red and forms a massive head, with giant soda bubbles. Yeasty, fresh aroma. Flavor combines bright Belgian ale malt flavors with rich date, sour cherry, and plum fruit flavors. Spicy up front (cinnamon, clove). Raisiny dark fruit really comes through in the aftertaste. A healthy dose of carbonation keeps the beer refreshing and prevents the beer from getting heavy on the palate. Extremely drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Dark brown with a slight red tint. Good foam that hangs around for a while.

Smell: Malt and dark fruits.

Taste: Dark fruits, caramel, malts, cocoa.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slight bittersweet aftertaste.

The Verdict: Delicious. If you're looking for a Belgian dark strong ale, this is a good place to start. Smoooth, complex, and balanced. It's on the sweet side of bittersweet, but only by a few inches. Good stuff.
