UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Bottle from Smith Street Cellars and the Alehouse Project. Imperial. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, coffee and hints of fig. Taste is sweet, with bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

750ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from March 2014. Shared with my wife as this beer is made with her favourite New Zealand coffee. Poured a dense thick black with a foaming tan cap. Aromas of coffee beans, toffee and malt. The was a dry finish with a faint fruitiness from the fig.

Perhaps a little too much upfront coffee, but I am sure this will mellow and balance out over time. A wonderful brew.

(750ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors for a ridiculous $27 or something. Pours a thin, beige head that dissipates while the black body is rich in aroma and depth. Great gritty burnt coffee and spicy, slight Balsamic. Very interesting.

Very nice full flavoured imperial stout. Big coffee aroma dominates the stout. Couldn’t get a whole lot of the fig but there was a real pleasant sweetness that may be related? Regardless this was an awesome beer full of flavour.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a lazing dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, figs, and lemons. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coconuts, coffee, figs, and wood, leading to a dry and roasted finish.

Visual: Pours ultra dark brown with smallish very foamy lasting head, some lacing, a bit of activity near the surface. Nose: clean roasted coffee without much burntness, soft aroma. (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: dark malts, silky texture Mid-palate: fizzy-micro-tingly, (MAIN) big roasted coffee, fig dark fruitiness, cacao, thick malts Finish: coconut nuttiness, roasted coffee exhale, malty sweet coffee bitter finish. Summary: Big roasted coffee and figgy flavour with just enough ABV, body, texture and zero sourness. Composed and poised. One of my top 3 favourite stouts out of all the 50+ stouts I’ve tried.

Beersiveknown (2889) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle from Brew on Quay
Thick dark brown with rich smoky coffee and sweet thick honey on the nose. Smooth, thick body with rich coffee, sweet chocolate and a long dry finish. A fantastic sipper but no sign of that coconut!

This is a tasty, but very roasted flavor. I don't taste the fig flavor, but I still like it overall.

Very nice beer. It has a great roast on the nose and a lovely look. Not the thickest stout but the flavours are beautiful and rolls nicely on the palate. Solid.
