I found a couple of offerings that I hadn’t tried before from what is perhaps my personal favorite brewery, Unibroue. Unibroue is located in Quebec, Canada, and they focuses on Belgian style ales and they have turned out some truly stunning brews. Tonight I’m trying Trois Pistoles, a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, brewed with spices. The head is beautiful and creamy and fairly rich. The nose has cherry, sour Belgian yeasts, and some earthy notes. The middle is rich and well rounded with berries, oak, orange, spices, and a hint of booze. The finish is warm and spicy, with some vanilla and lingers on the tongue. It’s got massive amounts of flavor, and I love that it’s not overly sweet, with just a hint of sugar in the middle. Once again, I think Unibroue has produced a winner.
I give it a 4.7 out of 5.
