Trois Pistoles

Another winner from one of the best brewers in North America, Unibroue, and a nice explanation of the story of Trois Pistoles on their website as well. A whiff of banana comes immediately after opening and pouring. A little clove, a little candi sugar, sweet, tangy and a tad bitter in the end. Trois Pistoles is dark brown and very effervescent. The head starts strong and slowly fades to an outer ring w/ splotches here and there on the surface. There is some lacing but it slides down as quickly as you drink. It’s a gut warmer at 9% ABV, and it really made my ears warm and red too. There is some fruity sweetness as it warms, as well as a doughy quality in the exhale. This is a very good dark ale. 90/100
