The beer pours a blackish brown colour with a thick foamy chocolate brown head. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, figs, and smoked wood. The mouthfeel is full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is roasted malt, smoked wood, dark chocolate, and coffee. The fruits arent very noticeable in the flavour. A very good beer.

If we are talking the 2014 version this was amazing. Went through 4 bottles of it over the last few weeks. Strong coffee and sweet fruit flavors. Tastes exactly how a good coffee infused beer should.

blankboy (7482) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2016
[Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o HTH] 2015 vintage. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size lasting frothy light-brown head. Aroma of coffee first followed by hints of dark fruit and cocoa -- but it almost smells like cold coffee. Flavour of lots of coffee followed by dark malt, dark fruit and cocoa. Medium bodied. Pretty good, not great.

I get raisin and roast coffee with some bitter chocolate on the nose. More of all that on the tongue - especially the coffee - with lots of sweet malts.Been a while since I ate a fig but this didnt taste like any fig newton I remember. Smooth and rich and really good.

Metalchopz (3247) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2016
Pours a deep copper-brown colour with ruby highlights. The head is bubbly-foamy, mocha-coloured with good retention and beautiful creamy-foamy lacing. Earthy aromas with some bitter chocolate, roasted malts and some coffee. Flavours of chocolate and roasted malts. Mild grassy hops and coffee in the finish. Hard to feel the fig as if any dark fruits, pretty light. The rest is pretty earthy for a beer, but goes down nicely. Maybe they are sandy figs.

AleRider78 (897) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2016
759ml bottle. Pours a nice average creamy frothy beige head and has a dark brown appearance with ruby highlights. Lacing is decent. Aromas roasted barley malts, notes of chocolate and coffee. Flavours of coffee, chocolate, spices, earthy hops. Quite a bit of sweetness from the figs, as well as some mild bitterness. Fairly smooth and slick mouthfeel. Average retention. Slight warming sensation. Alcohol is well hidden. Good stuff.

Bottle from LCBO. Strong aromas of figs and molasses, coffee and chocolate. Tastes like chocolate and figs, with minor coffee notes. Very smooth mouthfeel. Touch of coconut in the aftertaste. Lovely mix of flavours in this.

I didnt get figs from this. It is a flavour that can almost be recreated with malts and yeast, but even still, I dont get that here. Its a nice coffee stout, though. The coconut mimics barrel aging a bit.
