Sampled at Slutfest 2.0. Pours a near clear amber with tan head. Sweet and cinnamen brown sugar. and maybe i see the figs. DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle. Hazy medium amber, foamy off-white head , decent retention. Okay, to begin with there is no cinnamon in the aroma. Strike one. There is no fig in the aroma. Strike two. Baird, you really had my hopes up here! I LUVS ME MY FIGS!!! There are no figs in the aroma or the palate. Huge let down. HUGE!!! There is fruity caramel. There are hints of spices. There are yeasty undertones. There is an alcoholic warmth in the finish that surpasses what I would expect froma beer of mere 6.5% ABV. But there are no figs, nor is there cinnamon. Is it an okay brew? Sure. It’s okay. Am I filled with jubilation? Sadly, no.
