It seems that everyone knows the story of the Three Kings. Sent to follow the star in the sky each brought a gift for the baby they sought. One King brought Gold, the other Frankincense and the other Myrrh. Many breweries produce a Christmas Seasonal beer and this is our beer to celebrate the holiday season.

Pours a light brown color with a slight haze. Fizzy head that dies down to a ring, with carbonation rising up and creating a foam island in the middle. The aroma has brown sugar, butterscotch, toffee and dark fruits. The flavor has more dark fruits, caramel and citrus. Slight earthy flavor like dry wood rounded out with a kiss of alcohol. Really damn smooth for 12% abv. Impressive beer that reminded me of a Trappist quad.

Sweet and hoppy. Kind of boozy with a clean finish.
