Rating #106 for this beer.
633ml brown bottle. Amber pour, hazy. Has a thin whitish cap with creamy edges. Nose is fruity, lots of marmalade notes, smells like a sweet amber ale. In the mouth ther is cinnamon spiciness, fruity and caramel malts, finishes with a light suggestion of hops. A hint of bitterness in the aftertaste but lots of spice, and slight woody notes. Decent.

22 ounce bottle purchased at Ledger’s Liquors. BevMo in Natomas also has this beer. The aroma on this seems a little old and lightly oxidized with some cardboard hints. I have no clue if this is an old bottle or not. Ledger’s is known for that sometimes. Behind this, there is a strange herbal complexity, which is kind of sweet in one sniff and a little spicy in the next sniff. I guess that would be the sweetness of the figs and the spiciness of the cinnamon, although I would have difficulty putting a finger on them if not for help from the description. This has a slightly hazy amber-copper body with a smallish, quickly dissipating off-yellowish head. There could be some chill haze, here seeing I had this in the freezer. Starts a little herbal, before this becomes a little fruity and sweet, which is then followed by some light spiciness and a little bitterness. Finishes a little sweet. Very low carbonation in this beer, which works a little against this. abemorsten (3650) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2012
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Hazy orange body with small particles. Fingerthick creamy light brown head. Sweet fruits, clove, freezer ice, honey and maple syrup on the nose. Honey sweet, light acidic and light bitter flavors. Reminiscent of a honey induced vanilla tea. Medium body. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle; poured a muddy brownish-amber color with a creamy looking khaki colored head. Aroma of fig/dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar and fruit; a bit of spice. The fig really comes through strongly in the aroma. Quite distinct due to the ingrediants in the flavor. Alot of fig and cinnamon, with a bit of caramel, bread and sweetness. A nice soft palate, with a touch of creaminess. Not a beer I would want to drink often, but it was much better than expected. willisread (3465) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2015
330ml bottle from Liquors Hasegawa (bottled on 10/13/2014). Poured in a snifter. Pours a hazy caramel brown with a modest head that dissipated within 5 minutes. Really clear and strong sweet fig aroma. Slight cinnamon and alcohol aromas present as well. Initial taste was very alcohol forward with strong spice and bitterness present from hops. As it comes to room temperature individual spices become easier to detect: clove, ginger, corriander, cinnamon and nutmeg are all present. Alcohol taste becomes a little milder. FIg aroma is quite strong and lasts throughout the glass. Medium body with a relatively thin texture. Bitter finish. Very unique beer from Baird. dfinney23 (3394) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2015
I’ve never had figgy pudding but if it tastes anything like this I want some. Figgy and malty mildly spicy.
