3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sun Devil. Pours a brilliant shade of amber with a frothy tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. Smells hot with added notes of cinammon and fig, as advertised -- almost like a cherries jubille made with figs. Tastes predominatly of Honeycomb cereal, raisins, powdered creamer, cocoa beans, and sherry. Thin in consistency and dry on the palate, but a nice brew regardless.

Was expecting a more unique, original beer. But didn’t really end up having that much flavor. Thought the figs would give a very interesting flavor, but it is actually pretty muddy. Disappointed.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper colored with a nice off-white head. Unusual aroma of fruits, light cinnamon and some faint cooked vegetable notes. Lightly sweet candied fruit flavors back by caramel and chocolate malts. Cinnamon spiciness comes through towards the finish, but is not over powering.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazed orange amber pour with moderate rocky off-white head. Dried fruit and bread aroma on it with spicy cinnamon coming through well. Overall gives a fruitcake impression. Starts out honey sweet but moves to bread and dried fruit/figs again. Has a little bit of a metallic note, finishes with warm alcohol and light cinnamon. Not bad, but I wanted more out of a bottle at this price point.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is honey tea and biscuit malts. Appears an amber/copper with a crimson tint. Taste follows nose with sharp honeysuckle, tea, biscuit and sweet caramel overtones. Mid palate is sugary sweet toffee, tea leaf and more biscuit. Overall, unique but too sweet for my taste. B- rating.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 2008. This was a really interesting beer. Copper with a khaki colored head. The smell was sweet and malty with light sour, tangy notes. The flavor was nicely balanced between the malts and slightly sour figs. I couldn’t taste any cinnamon though. Body was medium-thin with an above average amount of carbonation. Very easy for me to drink unlike a lot of beers that have spices in them and it remained interesting throughout the entire glass.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
brewed with freshly picked figs and cinnamon twigs. Pours orange-brown with minimal head, regular carbonation, and minimal lacing. Mellow and soft fig sweetness up front, with subtle cinnamon spices at the backend. Goes down extremely smooth and just a trace of bitterness at the finish. Well-balanced body, sweetness, smoothness, creaminess, texture and carbonation. It could use more complexity and depth.

Bottle, another treat from afire thanks Waylo. Poured a hazy copper with slight tan head. Spice and vegetable with some dry sweet notes. Thin and high carbonation. Okay but maybe needed more of an alcohol boost to warm up.
