SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

This week's beer of the week is Trois Pistoles from the Unibroue (Hah, like unibrow?) Brewery in Chambly, Québec, Canada.

Trois Pistoles is a bold Belgian ale that has a 9 percent alcohol content.

Along with a slight alcohol tastes, the brew is sweet and finishes with a subtle spiciness.

The scent of the beer, apart from being a little chocolatey, smells like a basket of dark fruits such as plums, cherries, and figs.

"I'd pair it with a light chocolate mousse," said Joe Hotek of John's Grocery, 401 E. Market St. "A savory beef dish would work, too. Or you could even serve this one alone."

Because the Hawkeyes have a break this weekend, stock up on plenty of Trois Pistoles to fill the void in your schedule this Saturday.
