AleRider78 (1000) - 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.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2015
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.

Alpha10 (738) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2015
2015/12/19 - Pours a dark brown cola colour with a thick, foamy, khaki head that slowly reduces as leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is coffee roast, dried chili peppers, milk chocolate, light figs and a hint of molasses. Taste is figs, dried chili peppers (without the spiciness), coffee roast and bitter cocoa. Dry and dusty. Mouthfeel is medium with smooth carbonation and a drying finish. Didn't taste any coconut and the pepper notes were unexpected, but overall a really nice stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GregClow (3391) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Very dark body - verging on black - with a thin tan head. Strong aroma of freshly ground coffee with dark fruit and molasses notes behind. Coffee is still present in the flavour, but not quite as aggressively as in the aroma, with sweet dark fruit, caramel and cocoa notes coming to the fore. Medium-full body, slightly creamy on the palate. Slight heat in the finish, but not as strong as you might expect from an 8% beer. Very nice all around, really.

asheft (3061) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle. Dusty aroma of grassy cinnamon roast coffee with jalapeno peppers. Almost opaque black under thin, light brown. Jalapeno pepper flavour (no spiciness) with chocolate and fairly dry roasty finish. Medium light body, medium carbonation, smooth.
