COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by a tale of a cask doctor who brought sluggish ales back to life by suspending a fig in them. Brewed from 100% Maris Otter pale ale malt, a blend of fine hops and conditioned on dates and figs. User Instructions: open bottle, pour contents into two snifters. Enjoy. ALTERNATIVELY: Walk hand-in-neck with bottle into the middle of the woods. Use shovel to dig 2x2 hole three feet deep. Seal bottle in plastic bag. Place in hole and pack with dirt. Memorize location and leave. Return exactly one year later. Dig up bottle, open and enjoy.

Murky dark amber color with a weak light tan colored head of soft foam. Rich dried dark fruit rampant all around with a candied citrus and subtle dry pine finish. Alcohol is noticeable but not distracting. A big boy barleywine.

Really big beer that drinks deceptively easy. Aromas of fig, booze, soft malt and other dark fruits. Beautiful color and a small color. Smooth and weighty.

Thisis12ptfont (1215) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 6, 2017
Aromas of brown sugar, dark fruits, apricot juice, candied caramel, odd yeast,sugared plums, figs and aged malts. Pours deep crimson/copper with an extremely thin foam and no lacing. Taste brings extremely sweet malts, sugared tangerine, figs, dates, raisins, plums and alcohol sugars upfront. Mid palate offers caramel, brown sugar, toffee, sugar coated caramel, apricot and vanilla. Finishes extremely sweet with tons of dark fruits, deep malt funk, molasses and amber malts. Overall, this is unique yet, overly sweet with lots of booze to it. B+ rating
