And so the Three Wise Men set out from the East bearing gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Along the Way, they followed a bright light. The Bible neglects to mention if they brought beer or not. Who goes crossing the desert without beer? How smart are we to believe these wise men were? Since Christmas is the season of gift giving more than receiving, please be a giver and share the Wisdom found in each and every bottle of our Gift of the Magi.

dnstone (2814) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Deep amber with a light haze and off white head. Nice sweet and moderately malty with dry fruit characteristic of quads with a spiced saison yeast character. Notes: Bottle from Brian at Erics bottle share, Dec 16.

Capa (2960) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Dark caramel malt, sweet fruit, ripe, some light spice, toast. A bit of a warm boozy finish. Not all that impressive.

pours a dark amber from tap with a nice crema. aromas of warm spices, clove, and other familiar belgian-style ale scents. medium body with a slightly cloyingly sweet mouthfeel. decent finish with aftertaste of noble hops and brett funk. a solid example of a belgian ale.

MetalNHopHead (1656) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Lost Abbeys Gift of the Magi is on par with the seasonal offerings imported from Belgium at this time of year. Its a sweet/spicy brew with more than a little booziness. Dark fruit and candy sugar aromatics. Fig, date, plum, raisin, prune, and molasses flavors. Warm, full-bodied feel - this is a sipper for chilly day. An exceptionally rainy California day will also work in lieu of a chilly day.

A great seasonal. Some hints of molasses and brown sugar with a lighter bodied profile.

Concealer (1213) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Bomber. Oddly I chose to rate this for the first time using a 2013 version. A burnt gold hue with a large, foamy tan head that lasts and laces well. Aromas of caramel, molasses, plum, raisin, date, spice, light yeast and orange. Flavor is caramel, orange, date, raisin, molasses, spice, yeast, earthy and funky notes on the end. Medium plus bodied, smooth with a dry end. Still some warmth as well.

Zymurgeist2 (2011) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Tap at Harrys Hofbrau. Last time I had this was about 10 years ago. I remember it fondly, but hard to live up to a decade of memories. Still very tasty. Moderately complex with dark fruit.

milo91hd (204) - Lecce, ITALY - JUL 1, 2016
Bottiglia 75 CL, colore tonaca di frate con un cappello di schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma maltato, caramello, frutta sotto spirito e lieviti. Al palato dolce e i suoi 10 gradi non si fanno sentire

jbruner (4380) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bomber with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big spice notes and Belgian esters over a hint of oxidized malts. Taste follows with less of the oxidation and more of the spice. Bubbly carbonation, booze is balanced, solid.
