Coffee, Fig, Coconut Oatmeal Stout. While this sounds like it should be divine I didnt dig it for two reasons. One is that this is one of those stouts that is super dry and super super ashy, with very little sweetness or malt character to balance. The other is that it smells and tastes like burnt coffee. I couldnt get any fig, coconut or oatmeal character and didnt get very far before giving up on this incredibly astringent ashy beer.

On tap at the Lumsden (apparently the only keg ever as part of the Lumsdens birthday celebration). Pours black with a little translucency. Thick body. Figs, cherries, coffee, nutty. Lots of sweet fruit up front, lots of bitter coffee and bitter roasty notes after and then a nice long coffee finish. The coffee and figs take centre stage over the stout but it all blends together outstandingly well. An absolute delight.

bozoNZ (778) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 19, 2017
2013 version. Harsh aroma. Stale burnt coffee and musty wardrobes. Palate and flavour is beautiful. Sweetness up front countered with a balanced coffee finish. The figs and coconut dont really feature.

Bottle. Pours a deep black colour with a fluffy beige head, aroma is roasted malt with hints of coffee, the taste is medium bitterness with the coffee coming through with a dry bitter finish.

Really well balanced beer. The creaminess of the stout with the subtle fig made it a great beer on Christmas day.

ANZUShophunter (412) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2016
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours black with tan head and aroma of coffee and roasted malt that continue through to the palate. Didnt pick up as much fig as I was expecting although Id aged this for 6 months.

LCBO limited edition. More fig than coffee. Not a year, but somewhat washed out flavour. OK stout.
