Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Reddish copper color with a decent beige/tan head. Aroma is mostly a warm lightly roasted caramel. Near full bodied with foamy carbonation. Flavor is indeed rather figgy, and the cinnamon is detectable. Quite different. Very interesting. Finishes fruity, herby/spicey and approaching dryness. Unusual flavor aspects waft across the palate. You should definitely try this one. gunnfryd (15176) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 7, 2010

633 mL bottle from Bruisin Ales in Asheville, opened to celebrate my acquisition of a new car. Rated 5/31/10. Pours a hazy reddish color with a medium sized creamy offwhite head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma is nutty and malty with notes of figs, dates, leafy hops, cinnamon and clove. The taste is lightly tart fig and other fruity notes, cinnamon with complements brown sugary malt notes, nutty notes and a citrus and leafy hop finish. Medium-full bodied, smooth and fairly bitter in the finish. Another good effort from a brewery that I’ve enjoyed a lot.

"a decent hoppy spiced ale that was enjoyable enough. even a little unique. but in the end the flavors were a bit muddled and the beer lacked focus. i’d drink it again, but wouldn’t pay the premium price on another bottle."
