FigTree is designed for viewing beast output as demonstrated by their example data:

BEAST output is well supported by ggtree and it’s easy to reproduce such a tree view. ggtree supports parsing beast output by read.beast function. We can visualize the tree directly by using ggtree function. Since this is a time scale tree, we can set the parameter time_scale = TRUE and ggtree will parse the time and use it as branch length.
