What the brewers say

“Fig dipped in dark chocolate, ripe fruit, and toffee.”

What our panel thought

“Nutty breadcrust nose with a substrate of mild phenol. Light hints of American hop resin, with apricot and golden currant esters plus vanilla oak notes. Rich toffee, fig, and sweet-roll malt flavor. Low soft hints of clove and a touch of pepper phenol.”

What our editors thought

“Toasted hazelnut offers a suggestion of sweetness, but a clinical floral note chastises the appearance of indulgence. The sip brings familiar esters and phenols, tied up in a leathery bitterness. Alcohol offers warming comfort.”
