look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a wax sealed bottle into a Chimay chalice. Thick head that quickly settles. Dark, but not too dark in the body.

Not a whole lot going on in the nose. Smells somewhat like a quad, some dark fruits, some burnt smells, but that is about it.

Taste is better than I expected. Not very complex, but enjoyable and drinkable and hides the 11% ABV pretty well.

Body is a little thin.

All this adds up to a relatively enjoyable beer, smooth and drinkable, but not as much flavor as I would like. Tough to drink a whole one and stay composed, so best to split with a friend.

3.8/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

22 oz bottle pours a surprisingly light brown color with a fairly small cap of off white head. Retention and lace are both unremarkable.

Nose is a nice combo of mildly chocolate malt, figs for sure, apples and leafy caramel. Maybe a little nutty yeast comes out as it warms.

Interesting flavor profile...nutty and fruity - fruitcake even. But the malts are incredibly light and do not provide enough rich caramel flavors. The figs really are profiled to excellence though...almost like sugar-covered figs with honey and dark rum drizzled on the top. Its a interesting beer, maybe not great, but very good. Unfortunately at nearly $15 a pop it will be hard to justify more bottles.
