Pours a medium amber/ruby in color with a short white head.

Great aroma of dried fruit like raisins, figs, etc., with big notes of alcohol.

The fruit notes are equally big in the flavor. This is a complex brew, with earthy fruit flavors (the label says it was fermented with dates and figs) mixing with caramel flavors from the coconut palm sugar. Noticeable alcohol flavor and burn, too, even though this beer is "only" 8 percent alcohol. Finishes dry.

Light and slick body.

Overall this is an excellent beer. It's expensive, so consider it for a special occasion. I'm enjoying it as a nice alternative to the IPA kick I've been on.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Light fizzy head fades almost instantly, murky tan brown.

Nose bleh, weird brown malt thing, mild candy malt, fruity brown fruit, little grainy Syrupy, meh.

Taste isn't too bad, syrupy candy, molasses, little burnt sugar caramel and candy sugar, hint of Smokey note, brown malt, etc. Mild earthy bitterness, generic fruity note, etc, little butterscotch. Finish is drier, little grassy herbal bitterness, mild sweet candy malt, sticky.

Mouth is med bod, little syrupy, decent carb.

Overall ok but nothing special.
