3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! He said this one was a couple years old. Pours a semi-cloudy orange with a finger of off-white head. Notes of figs (the golden kind), peppery spice, caramel and amber and toasted malts, sugars, earth, straw - didn’t really get any cinnamon in here, but then again I’m not sure if "cinnamon twigs" are something else altogether. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Interesting beer. Certainly one of a kind.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Monument Wine. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a vanilla and cinnamon aroma. There is a carbonated pale malt flavor with fig and spice tastes. Starts sweet and finishes a bit harsh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Draught at Qbricks fruit beer day, May 08.
Amber-orange color with a medium off-white head. Strong aroma of cinnamon, figs, drak fruit. Rather sweet and fruity. Big spice flavor, with figs. Low hops lacking balance. Too much cinnamon, but with a nice malt richness. Enjoyable but too sweet and too much spice.

"a decent hoppy spiced ale that was enjoyable enough. even a little unique. but in the end the flavors were a bit muddled and the beer lacked focus. i’d drink it again, but wouldn’t pay the premium price on another bottle."

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is sweet fruity, cinnamon, figs and dates and almost a touch oxidized. The flavor is more sweet fruit centered around figs, some cinnamon, honey with mild bitterness to the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium pale beige head. Hazy amber body with floaties. Malty resiny minty aroma, very harmonic. Dry-sweetish minty oxidized malty taste with strawy soda notes. Mild mouthfeel. Fullish yet light body. Dryish peppery minty aftertaste with malty gingery notes. Nice, mild, drinkable, unusual. (0.36l bottle, Olympen, Oslo. Bottle says 2007.)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Deep amber, somewhat of a dark red, cloudy and dirty, moderate off-white head, frothy, with
spotty lacing.   Lots of dark pitted fruit on the nose.   Not real heavy, but it seems like dates, figs, and
raisins.   Golden raisins to be more exact.   On the tongue it certainly carries that dark pitted fruit
aspect.   The body is light, meaning its not like a dubbel.   The backside has a very dull cinnamon aspect.
Now I know its nothing like a Dubbel.   I wished this was a bit more full bodied, and sweet.   Seems to
come across as a weak Dubbel with some other spices.   Not bad, but needs a little more body and brightness.
