Trios Pistoles is a Strong Belgian type ale similar to a Port wine! It is as dark as can be, mellow in taste with an aroma of ripe fruits. Brewed with four selected malts and four exoctic spices, this beer beckons with a subtle sweetness that makes it surprisingly smooth and satisfying for a beer with such strength and complexity. ABV- 9%
About the Legend
“Trois Pistoles” (Three Coins) is named after a small village in the region of Les Basques in Quebec founded over 300 years ago. The label depicts the Legend of the Black Horse, involving a local bishop who conjured up a good devil (appearing in the form of a bridled black steel) to haul large brick stones to construct a new church. When a child accidently removed the bridle, the black horse suddenly vanished just as the last remaining stone was to be set. This tone is still missing, as can be seen when visiting the village church in Trois Pistoles.
