Unibroue Trois Pistoles
Color: Brown with Burgundy hues. Nose: Strong malt flavour, slightly roasted, with aromas of chocolate, brown rum, spices and herbs. Flavor: Full-bodied palate with notes of lightly smoked rum, grains, herbs and spices.
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.
