330ml bottle poured into tulip. Appearance is hazy iced tea brown with red highlights. One finger head quickly fades to a ring. Bit of a bubble show with sediment resting on the bottom. Aroma is raisin, vanilla, fig, alcohol, light molasses, and grains. Taste is sweet malt and yeast with mild clove phenol, pumpernickel bread, brown sugar, and fig. Alcohol is prominent with fruit and spice notes. Medium-plus body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation, spicy and sweet finish.

A: Pours dark brown, very little light escapes. The head is beautiful, slightly over a finger of caramel colored foam with swirls of burnt toffee brown that resemble cinnamon on top.

S: The aroma is slightly boozy on this one, with figs and malt shining through.

T: This is an altogether stronger, more full bodied, albeit less complex, offering. It has a pretty strong alcohol character, and relies much more heavily on its fruity, figgy notes to carry it throughout. There is a subtle toffee sweetness on the finish. 

F: Good body, pleasant and thick with good carbonation. 

O: Another super solid offering from this brewery. I really enjoyed 6, and this one as well, but for different reasons. It's simple, fruit and booze in a well balanced presentation. Very well done and worth the price of admission.
