Can: Poured a murky cloudy brown color ale with a dark brown foamy head. Aroma of caramelized sugar, cinnamon and orange zest with some toffee notes is interesting and unique. Taste is also a good mix of caramelized malt, toffee notes with some residual sugar notes, some cinnamon and some orange zest. Cocoa and vanilla are harder to detect but can be noticed. Body is super full with good carbonation and alcohol is not overly detectable. Enjoyable beer though unique and complex with loads of different flavours.

The beer pours a really nice looking brown head that dissipates quickly but still leaves a good mocha brown head around the inside of the glass. The beer itself is a nice black color with a brown hue to it.

The smell is damn good and strongly resembles pudding. It has a good baker's cocoa that mixes well with the stronger sweet figs and vanilla. The cinnamon is light and doesn't come out very well and I can't really see the orange zest in all of this.

The taste is pretty good and a bit more interesting compared to the smell. The same notes come out with the orange zest and cinnamon fully popping out to make things a bit spicy compared to the smell.

The feel is good. Although, it's a bit light for the style and a bit more carbonated than one will expect.

Overall, a pretty good and intense beer that's worth getting one's hands on.

Appearance - Pours thin black color with a nice thick tan head that settles to an 1/8" cap with spotty lacing around the glass.

Aroma - A wonderful meld of the main ingredients. I am getting the cinnamon and orange zest big time in the nose. I was not completely sure what a fig smelled like mostly dark fruit, rich aromatic which I get from this. The vanilla also adds some richness to the nose which is pretty dang rich. The cocoa nibs come out very nice as well.

Taste - The taste is very smooth, no sign of the 13%, rich chocolate hits me first, the vanilla and figs come in afterwards. The cinnamon comes in more towards the finish but adds a great spiciness that I love. The flavors play very well together and are well balanced.

Feel - Smooth full bodied very creamy with just a touch of heat.

Overall - Love this beer, great flavors dangerously easy drinking.

Lots of fig and malt in this one. Very strong with alcohol. Body is too thin for my taste. Overall, it has a rich pleasant flavor, but the other qualities diminish the whole.
