Dark amber in color with light carbonation. Aromas of figs, prunes, and faint spice. Med/syrupy body with notes of figs, prunes, dates, slight oxidation, almost cloying sweetness, and a sweet average finish. Too sweet for my tastes at the moment but it should be interesting with some age.

This bottled brew from a rating party at Patrick’s poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a transparent uncarbonated red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and sweet. A decent one that I would consider having again.

2008 Year of the Fig / Sacred Series No. 1

9/04/2008: He’Brew Rejewvenator 2008 pours out in a golden brown stream and is mostly clear with a small dark beige head. The aroma has toffee malt, a vibrant fruitiness (figs, of course!), and a hint of apple leather. The semi-sweet flavor contains cherry, caramel, aged or baked fruits, and is malty with and earthy hop presence. The beer has a medium body and is slightly chewy. Overall it this is a good beer, but not overly interesting. I am slightly disappointed as I was really hoping for more...

22 fl. oz. bottle (7.8% Alc by Vol.) from Rozi’s Wine House in Lakewood/Cleveland, Ohio. Rating #203 for this beer.
