COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by a tale of a cask doctor who brought sluggish ales back to life by suspending a fig in them. Brewed from 100% Maris Otter pale ale malt, a blend of fine hops and conditioned on dates and figs. User Instructions: open bottle, pour contents into two snifters. Enjoy. ALTERNATIVELY: Walk hand-in-neck with bottle into the middle of the woods. Use shovel to dig 2x2 hole three feet deep. Seal bottle in plastic bag. Place in hole and pack with dirt. Memorize location and leave. Return exactly one year later. Dig up bottle, open and enjoy.

An unclear dark orange beer with a small orange head. The aroma is of caramel and alcohol and is quite sweet. The flavor is dry with notes of caramel and alcohol.

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2004
Bottled. Deep golden colour, no head. Sweet and vastly malty. Sugary, but that does not disturb. Enough hops to overpower the sweetness. Bitter finish. Very enjoyable. There is no way I could guess tthis beer was 15%.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
Hazy amber color; creamy head. In the very beginning there is a woody aroma, with very light sourness, but disappears quickly; then there is only some caramel left. Good body strength, sweet caramel flavor, but the alcohol is too strong. Not my favorite.

9th December 2008. Very hazy orange amber beer. Low carbonation. Intense sweet porty notes followed by sweet toffee, a little spice and a very light touch of hop. A little licorice in the warming finish. Delicious and way too drinkable.

Bottle, 15%. Vinous and alcoholic aroma, some paint thinner. Almost clear dark amber colour. The flavour is extremely sugary, quite vinous. Has some brandy as well. Sweet vanilla. Not so balanced.
