Back in my old stomping grounds, Chicago, IL, Goose Island hit another one out of the park with their latest addition to their Fulton and Wood series, Black Mission. This Fig Newton inspired, Belgian Style Abbey ale is brewed with Mission Figs, a mix of 2-Row, Vienna, Munich, Carabrown, and Wheat malts, and finished with aged Noble hops. It’s rockin a 7.8% ABV, pours a beautiful auburn, and has a sweet but bready aroma.

If you’re in the Chicago-land area, pick up a bottle (or two) or Black Mission, crack open a package of Fig Newtons and enjoy!
