Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

2008 vintage poured into a lost abbey snifter.

Pours a copper color with a white 1 finger head that dissipates to a ring. Ample lacing on the glass.

Tons of roasted malt, fig, and raisins. There's also some sweet caramel and brown sugar.

Taste follows the nose. There is faded hops that leaves a citrusy remnant. Also, just a bit of funk.

This is on the heavy bodied side, with light carbonation.

Definitely glad to have had this, and want to try more of the style.
