This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Three French Hens is the third in the 12 Days/Years of Christmas Series. We again drew some inspiration from the name and decided that at least a portion of this beer had to be aged in French oak barrels. What we came out with is a bold and spicy Belgian Dark Strong Ale, 25% aged in oak. This beer is designed to take the journey through time until 12 Drummers Drumming, but is a delightful holiday treat right off the shelf.

Pours a hazy dark brown, two fingers of creamy light brown colored foam, spray of lace on the glass. Smell: brown sugar, note of toasted nuts, grape skin, ripe peach, sugary plum. Taste: overripe slightly tart peach, plum, brown sugar, notes of baking spices and cherry cola, herbal / oaky pop in the finish. This is nice... stone fruit-ed bsda with some oak barrel character.
