276/1550) Home:  Coffee Fig Imperial Stout 2015 by Epic Brewing Company Limited of New Zealand:  **1/2;  8%;  brewed with Turkish Lerdia Figs and matured on coffee from the Nyeri region of Kenya that was roasted in Wellington;  conditioned on toasted coconut from the Philippines;  the bottles suggests that one might wish to pour this on vanilla ice cream;  dark, bitter roasted coffee bean nose;  I don't detect a lot of coconut, just a touch;  the figs lend a certain degree of sweetness;  finishes with bitter coffee;  this is another fascinating beer - I could spend a lot of time getting to know this one;
