Poured into a nice chalice. Even upon pour the aeration provides a giant fig smell. Minimal head, but it forms actually nicely, maintains ring throughout glass. Giant dark red/brown indian red color. No lacing whatsoever.
Smell is a predominant giant fig bomb, even off the pour. Literally a giant dominant fig bouquet. Heat, characters of a dry table wine, dry toasted faint clove spice. Fascinating mouthwatering.
If you like figs this is your beer. Giant fig taste with some big body, smells more like a dry table wine, sweet fig comes in slow then in the middle a giant punch of sugars, honey taste on the finish, not a big alcohol bomb, dry in the mouth upon finishing on the palate. Incredibly warming in the stomach after a few sips.
Drinkability is highly desired.

Pours an opaque deep brown with caramel highlights and more beige, dense, creamy head than body. Thick sheets of lacing line the glass walls. The head lingers and is so dense, it climbs above the rim.
Prunes, raisins, figs, bruised apple and burnt sugar form the initial aroma. Gives the impression of a rum-soaked fruitcake. Notes of cola add complexity.
Flavor is intensely sweet and bready, with prunes, pear, banana, and raisins underlying. Toasted, caramelly malt forms the backbone, but the dark fruit character dominates. The finish is slightly dry and boozy.
Body is on the full side, with low carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.
Very complex, estery character, with enough alcohol to warm the belly, but not detract from the experience. Truly a beauty of a beer.
