COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with fennel seed, chia seed, and pink peppercorns - with mission figs added. In the 1700s and 1800s, missionaries and Native Americans grew a variety of crops along the El Camino Real. Apart from the famous mission grapes, mission figs, barley, and olives, fennel and chia were also grown... (The brewers) tried to recapture some of the historic flavors of the old Camino Real by brewing this beer...

Surprisingly burnt, a bit harsh. The malt dominates, but some spice, oak, cherry come through with a bit of smoke and fig. The fig is noteworthy, the rest of the additions are smashed behind the malt flavor. Dense and a bit thick on the palate. Surprisingly nice carbonation considering the density. Worth a try.

nbondi (201) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Dark plum/mahogany color with tan head. Soft nose of figs, dates, and caramel. Taste is more of the same with added baker’s chocolate, molasses, coffee, and nuts. Medium-thick body with good carbonation. Musty, somewhat hot finish. Very complex. Nice.

bhightow01 (44) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Pours nearly black with a good tan head. The nose is really nice and brings forward some citrus and tropical hops as well as a bit of pine. Roasted malt with a bit of chocolate in there, and faint hints of pepper. Nice mouthfeel with a bit of spice. Nice roast and bitter characteristics playing off one another. Quite drinkable; a very nice collaboration that wasn’t taken too far in any one direction.

Koelschtrinker (10831) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 3, 2011
Vollmundiger schokolasiger Antrunk, sehr cremig. Weiterhin äußerst vollmundig, gleichzeitig stark süffig. Bis zum Ende nur minimal alkoholisch. Harmonisch, deutliche Kafeenoten aber nur wenig Röstigkeit. Super! 13/14/13/12//13

Benzai (8530) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2011
Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during the three day Stone Event, 16-18 september 2011. Creamy light brown head, opaque black color. Smell hops, fruits, dark fruits and lightly bitter. Taste is a little less good than the smell, but still nice hoppy and some fruityness. Very nice mouthfeel and a medium to full body.

JoePeesie (865) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2011
A deep dark earthy ASA. Pours a deep dark brown with a nose of dry hops and malts. This was a great beer fresh and I’m hoping that the one I saved will be even better (a touch less hot and more balanced) with a year or 2 on it.
