Default Maritime pacific Brewery Jolly Roger Christmas Ale Clone

Anyone here from the northwest or has been probably knows was this beer is. I spent many of years in Seattle and grew to love a lot of beers up there.

At any rate, I am seeing myself trying to clone a lot of the beers I loved from up north.

I cannot find any clone recipes for this very strong christmas ale, yet very drinkable.

Here is some info on the brew.

Maritime Pacific Jolly Roger Christmas Ale from Maritime Pacific Brewing Co., a English Strong Ale style beer: An unofficial page for Maritime Pacific Jolly Roger Christmas Ale from Maritime Pacific Brewing Co. in Seattle, Washington , United States

Maritime Pacific Jolly Roger Christmas Ale - Maritime Pacific Brewing Company - BeerAdvocate

I have seen ABV number from 9 to 10.5 on this beer, yet it does not taste like it, but certainly sneeks up on you.

Anyway, I am new to the AG scene and would certainly try this recipe soon. I am hoping someone that would know how to replicate this is thinking the same thing.

I'll just mention Russian River and then say [insert a dozen others here].

The brews I can get out here is starting to be one of the only things I like about CA!

Sorry, didn't want to start a war or anything, I should have put a caveat on the post in that:

near my area there is a definite lackluster microbrew scene. There are definitely some good breweries in Cali, such as Stone, Lost Coast, Anchor Steam, some others. I think the only one here in Fresno is Sequoia Brewing which puts out good beer, don't get me wrong, but that is about all I have.

now on the other side of the coin, let's see, the northwest, where do I start:

Rogue
Pyramid
Red Hook
Pacific maritime
deschutes
Elysian
Hale's Ales Brewery
The Ram
Pike Place
Bert Grants (RIP)
Full Sail
Widmere
Snoqualmie Falls

here's a thought.
Head over to Sequoia, buy the brewer a beer and talk about adding a winter warmer. Perhaps the brewer would be interested in making something like that, but is afraid there would be no market in Bulldog Country. You never know, you might make a friend that can help clone the JR or send some hops your way now and then.

stranger things have happened.

I used to live around the corner from them, that was a damn good beer. I need to see if I can score a case or so.

That is a good idea and I think it would always be a good idea to have a brewer friend, can't go wrong there.

Now I just need to get my hands on the original to remember what it tastes like.

So another year has passed and I am still trying to formulate a good recipe based on the Jolly Roger Christmas ale. I just called the taphouse and they would not give any information toward anything in the beer.

So once again I am hoping one of the local brethren here has some insight into this wonderful beer.

Also, as a side note, I have certainly changed my mind about the Californian craft brew scene since last year.
