COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nothing gets you in the holiday spirit quite like this FIGJAM QUADRUPLE with its 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 didnt have a name. When a friend of ours told us about a celebrity with whose nickname is FIGJAM (which stands for F@*k Im 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, hes pretty damn good!

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

SG111 (1267) - New York, USA - AUG 14, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2016 Bottled. Pours dark murky brown chestnut. Aroma is fig, dark fruit, plum, molasses, but none of that classic Belgian spice character you get in other quads. Flavor is kind of oxidized (metallic notes), fig, dark fruit, raisins, sweet sugary molasses, bit of spice right at the back of the throat but not great.

Dogbrick (11508) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2016
On draught at South Park Tavern in Dayton. The beer is a dark brownish-amber color with a medium thick off-white head that recedes gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruit, yeast and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of dark fruit, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is fruity with a fig and malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle from Sidney OH Marathon station pour dark cola brown with minimal to no head. Looks like flat soda with amber hue. Nose raisin, caramel, sweet malt, light earthy. Taste sweeter character, but not as fruity as expected. Raisin, molasses, light dank light earth. Not much in the finish. Light alcohol heat late.

12oz bottle. Dark brown pour with some sediment and a light mocha film. Takes a bit of time to open and lose some metallic notes but then settles down. Fairly figgy but would say mostly dried, Belgian yeast and light spice, brown sugar, somewhat boozy, low carbonation and moderate body, slight tang on the finish and the booze really comes out on the end.

Bottle, Ann Arbor MI via Plum Market. Opaque brown, no head. Prune aroma, probably some figs in there. Very sweet, more prune, would benefit from more depth of flavour. Too sweet for me.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 # 5000. Bot. From the start its a volatile strong flat american ale that comes across like a fresh domestic barleywine. Figs? Not sure. Just strong warming big beer in yer face attitude. Go figger, heheheh! If you like big american barley wine, this is for you. Otherwise, not sure if it rises to the civility of real old country quads. Dude, if you like bold fresh americanized barleywine, gofer it.

Thanks Scott for the share! Aroma is nice, nothing special. Flavor is sweet and unfortunately lacking balance. Also getting a moderate amount of metallic off-flavor. Interesting beer concept, but lacks balance overall.
