Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit quite like this FIGJAM QUADRUPLE with itís warming alcohol, figgy undertones, dark dried fruit flavors of raison dates, hints of fresh baked bread, and a beautiful dry finish that leaves you wanting more.

We new we wanted to brew a big, boozy abbey-style quadruple for the holidays but we didnít have a name. When a friend of ours told us about a celebrity with whose nickname is FIGJAM (which stands for F@*k Iím Good, Just Ask Me), a star was born!

We are pleased to feature our head brewer John Ritenour on the packaging and while he is decidedly humble than FIGJAM, heís pretty damn good!

Great with rich roasty foods and cured meats, candied yams, Roquefort and Gorgonzola cheese and of course warm figgy pudding!

Pours out of the 12 oz bottle as a nice garnet or ruby with a bit of off-white head. Malt, brown sugar and dark fruit and alcohol aroma, not overly impressive but indicative of the style anyway. A relatively middling quad, which is not to say itís bad; itís merely another drinkable Belgian.

bwa5879 (772) - Portage, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Dark reddish black pour with half inch dense brownish head. Scent of dark fruit and belgian yeast: very rich, slightly sweet fig, plum, powdery banana esters and clove. Softer carbonation, tingly mouthfeel, finish is boozy and wine-like, leaving the teeth dry. Flavors of bitter pepper, banana, hearty grain, really boozy, bit of clove, some sweet fig. Boozy quad, a little harsh/bitter, could be more rich.

chucklemation (650) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Pours a dark ruby with a foamy off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is booze and fig. Flavor is slightly tart fig and some alcohol. Pretty good if not very complex/hearty for a quad.

superspak (3082) - Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2015
12 ounce bottle into chalice; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby red color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, prune, fig, date, caramel, toffee, toast, molasses, brown bread, light pepper, light herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, figs, and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, prune, fig, date, caramel, toffee, toast, molasses, brown bread, light pepper, light herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light yeast spice/herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, prune, fig, date, caramel, toffee, toast, molasses, brown bread, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice robustness and complexity of dark/bready malt, figs, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a great malt/yeast/fig flavor balance and no cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and fairly slick/creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent fruited quadrupel style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, figs, and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle: Murky copper, approaching swampy brown at the center with a quickly fading, fuzzy khaki foam. Aroma of prunes, boozy wine, figs, raisins, licorice, alcohol, yeasty esters, & some toasted bread. Flavor is very sweet up front, huge Candi sugar, fig, & licorice sweetness. Burnt caramel. Very phenolic & boozy towards the middle. Spicy yeast, clove, anise, & a strange off-flavor in the finish that reminds of straight up dirt. Alcohol heat towards the back-end, kind of abrasive. This thing is a hot mess. Pass.

arminjewell (7540) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Pour on tap, dark purplish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark fruit, toffee, some caramel, molasses, hints of spice, yeast, touch of earthy tones with more dark fruits/figs. Taste is a mix of toffee, molasses, touch of dark fruit, fig, some slight roasted malt, finishing very sweet, slightly dry.

Ferris (6601) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle - Lots of dark sugars and dark fruit. Deep dark brown with a decent beige head. Lots of dark fruit, dark sugar and a bit of booze in the finish. Nice quad with lots of sweetness and a throat warming booze. I think this would do well with a little age to mellow and round out the edges.

flatmatt (1198) - Northville, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours deep brown with a small off-white head. Potent juicy ripe dark fruit aroma with some more earthy aromas. Spicy dark fruit flavor, raisiny, green grape, with molasses lasting into the finish. Right near the line approaching too sweet, but nicely on the good side of that line. I quite enjoy it.
