Pours cloudy amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of caramel and spices. Taste is light sweet. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is sweet fruity, cinnamon, figs and dates and almost a touch oxidized. The flavor is more sweet fruit centered around figs, some cinnamon, honey with mild bitterness to the finish. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2010
Amber pour. Light tan head. Caramel malt, honey, spices and fruit. Flavor has cinnamon, allspice, honey, and a bit of hops. Not bad. phaleslu (10890) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! He said this one was a couple years old. Pours a semi-cloudy orange with a finger of off-white head. Notes of figs (the golden kind), peppery spice, caramel and amber and toasted malts, sugars, earth, straw - didn’t really get any cinnamon in here, but then again I’m not sure if "cinnamon twigs" are something else altogether. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Interesting beer. Certainly one of a kind.

Bottle from Monument Wine. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a vanilla and cinnamon aroma. There is a carbonated pale malt flavor with fig and spice tastes. Starts sweet and finishes a bit harsh. KyotoLefty (10808) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2008

Amber-orange color with a medium off-white head. Strong aroma of cinnamon, figs, drak fruit. Rather sweet and fruity. Big spice flavor, with figs. Low hops lacking balance. Too much cinnamon, but with a nice malt richness. Enjoyable but too sweet and too much spice.

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. KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2009
