Aroma is honey tea and biscuit malts. Appears an amber/copper with a crimson tint. Taste follows nose with sharp honeysuckle, tea, biscuit and sweet caramel overtones. Mid palate is sugary sweet toffee, tea leaf and more biscuit. Overall, unique but too sweet for my taste. B- rating. sulawang (1168) - - AUG 20, 2011
brewed with freshly picked figs and cinnamon twigs. Pours orange-brown with minimal head, regular carbonation, and minimal lacing. Mellow and soft fig sweetness up front, with subtle cinnamon spices at the backend. Goes down extremely smooth and just a trace of bitterness at the finish. Well-balanced body, sweetness, smoothness, creaminess, texture and carbonation. It could use more complexity and depth. frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Copper colored with a nice off-white head. Unusual aroma of fruits, light cinnamon and some faint cooked vegetable notes. Lightly sweet candied fruit flavors back by caramel and chocolate malts. Cinnamon spiciness comes through towards the finish, but is not over powering. GenkiGonzo (1092) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 8, 2014
Draught. Copper colour, small white head, some lacing. Quite sweet aroma of fig and some spice. Lots of cinnamon balanced nicely with the sweet fruit. colui72 (1055) - HONG KONG - JAN 4, 2016
Hazy red/copper with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity, taste goes straight to the fig, honey and malts. Quite sweet, medium bodied and boozy. Decent and original beer.

Had this beer from a 22 ounce , hazy, medium sweetness, I wasn’t anything super special Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Hazed orange amber pour with moderate rocky off-white head. Dried fruit and bread aroma on it with spicy cinnamon coming through well. Overall gives a fruitcake impression. Starts out honey sweet but moves to bread and dried fruit/figs again. Has a little bit of a metallic note, finishes with warm alcohol and light cinnamon. Not bad, but I wanted more out of a bottle at this price point. afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Bottle from 2008. This was a really interesting beer. Copper with a khaki colored head. The smell was sweet and malty with light sour, tangy notes. The flavor was nicely balanced between the malts and slightly sour figs. I couldn’t taste any cinnamon though. Body was medium-thin with an above average amount of carbonation. Very easy for me to drink unlike a lot of beers that have spices in them and it remained interesting throughout the entire glass. ddemmingjr (800) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2011

633 ml bottle courtesy of Shelton Bros. 7% ABA, according to the label. Pours reddish amber. Medium body, somewhat oily, properly unobtrusive carbonation. Something different. The first hit is big caramel. Yes to cinnamon, but not sure about the figs. Over-spiced. I don’t think it is too sweet, as the hops balance it. But there is an odd, rough aftertaste. Worthwhile more for its uniqueness than its quality.
