This is an untested and rough outline, I hope it peaks some people's curiosities and gets some people experimenting. I'll post back when I've tried it (early in the new year).

2.5 gallons unfiltered apple juice/soft cider
.5 gallon water
3 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 cup black-strap molasses
1 cup dried (edible) juniper berries
1/2 cup coriander seed
1/2 cup fresh organic orange rind
2 oz Simcoe hops

Ferment 2.25 gallons of apple juice w/ ale yeast as usual
2 weeks

"Burn" brown sugar solution (1/4 gal H20), dilute (1/4 gal H20), add molasses and all spices except hops, steep
Toss dilute syrup into primary with added yeast (half as much as for primary) and hops
Ferment 2 weeks

Prime with .25 gal apple juice and bottle

Bottle condition for.....? Then stove top pasteurize.

What do you think?

Did you make this--how did it turn out?
so whether you eat or drink, whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

Never did, got into all-grain instead and that kind of took over... as it tends to do
Have made a couple of hopped ciders though- they've turned out pretty well.
