COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, 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 (5002) - 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 (1161) - 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.

libertine (231) - rochester hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2014
;pours a murky Burgundy with a thin tan head. Bread, figs and dark fruits in the aroma. Flavor is a perfect example of an outstanding alt with taste of bread, figs and raisins. medium body with a sticky mouth feel. alcohol is well hidden but more present as it warms. could have a little more carbonation but i can not think of anything that is not done right here.

alliance100 (808) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2014

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Draft at Crunchyís, East Lansing. Murky orange-brown body, thin ring/discontinuous off-white head. Jam-like nose of strawberry and brown sugar. Boozy, sharp body with fig, brown sugar, strawberry, and toast. Fruity, bitter, and tart, most memorable for the sharp alcohol bite. Not especially Quad-like but better than I expected.

b3shine (5840) - Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks Solid; a transparent copper with off-white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells of malt, yeast, and a bit of dark fruit, bread, and spices. Tastes like it smells, only more robust and balanced, and without the bread notes. Smooth on the palate, especially for the abv. Solid beer.

A light fig nose. A dark fig and dried/condensed strawberry flavor both sweet and sour followed by some hop bitterness. A dark dark ruby red, light head, light lacing. A little syrupy palate, minimal carbonation. Overal, very nice; in small sips and doses.
