Our holiday offering brewed with English pale and specialty malts and molasses. Matured in freshly emptied brandy barrels and conditioned with mission figs. Gently spiced with the world’s finest Ceylon cinnamon and whole nutmeg. ‘Now, bring us some figgy pudding!’ the carolers demand. We are pretty sure this ale is what they mean though you will will want to keep some for yourself. Total bottle count for 2010 = 768.

Sample at M’kReam’s 40th Birthday Party on 08/01/2015. Pours a reddish amber color with a medium light beige head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, nutmeg and dark fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of sweet brandy, malt figs and spices. The finish is sweet and mildly boozy with a spiced figgy aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle... Pours lightly hazed and brown with copper highlights and a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is moderately roasty and lightly chocolaty with leathery tannins and skins. Full-bodied and super silky with gentle carbonation. The flavor is roasty, toasty and just plain nice. I’m not picking up figs specifically, but dark fruits? Yes… and very nice caramel and vinous elements. Finishes roasty and caramelized with light bitterness. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!
