The malt bill of this Belgian Christmas beer is based around a milk stout, with notes of molasses, toasted bread and raisins. The hops deliver hints of pine and bubblegum. Contributing to the main character is the Belgian Abbey yeast with its essence of candied fruit. Taking this over the top, the brewers also wove in caramelized dates and raisins, cinnamon sticks, cocoa nibs in the boil, and then conditioned it on raisins and figs.
