Pours a light brown with off-white head. It literally smells like French toast, period. Tastes like it too. Wow.

Wow. I wasnít expecting to like this. Itís truly like breakfast in a pint glass, with maple syrup flavor and color perfectly complementing the brown ale. I wouldnít want to drink a 6-pack of it, but what a way to start your morning.

Draft. Holy amaze balls. Nose is full of cinnamon and vanilla and coffee. Literally smells like those cinnamon rolls that come from the cardboard cylinders. Taste is sweet and full of vanilla and almost a coffee note. Probably the best beer Iíve had from Ccb.

Poured a murky brown color from the tap with aromas of malt, maple, light nuts as well. Flavors were malt, maple syrup, bread and a touch of cinnamon.

Draft on tap at Falling Rock (Denver, CO). Pours a deep brownish black ruby hue, firmer haze, frothy tannish head atop with mellow ring that laces ok. Aromas are rich maple, sweet and sticky caramel, spice and toffee. Some firm adjunct treatment on the nose. Initial is thinner, sessionworthy with spicy cinnamon, toast, some gentle maple wafts. Middle is spicy, dry, a bit more mellow and toasty. Some gentle body, earth, bread. The sweetness or firm body isnít there for me. Spicy, dry, cinnamon toast crunch. Some gentle brown malt, earth, toast. Backend and finish show spice, earth, toast. A rich adjunct nose and flavor up front tapers out. Still some potent flavors.

Draft at Churchkey. Cloudy golden color, white head. Aroma of Freedom Toast. Taste is maple syrup on freedom toast, holy cow, best imitation Iíve seen.

vtafro (5254) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Draft. Brown pour with tan head. Brown sugar, just French toast aromas. Flavor is a light brown ale backbone with just sweet French toast forward tones.

nimbleprop (6342) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey DC and whoa... Pours a translucent brown with some thin, white head. Nose is HUGE with vanilla and maple, smells like Aunt Jemima. Flavor is like watered down creme brulee, vanilla, burnt sugar, orange, heavy vanilla. It is really wild how well they got the concept right. Still gimmicky though.

solidfunk (5969) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Smells hugely of French toast, and makes me think from the beginning what the beer is going to taste like other than a gimmick. Luckily the taste isnít such a sugar bomb and actually tastes pretty light on the palate. Fairly watery texture. Finishes with light sweetness. Tap at Churchkey.

On draft at Hunahpu Day 2014. Pours a hazy brown with an off-tan head. Nose is cocoa, earth, cake batter, maple, cinnamon, and caramel. Flavor is similar with cocoa, earth, cake batter, maple, cinnamon, and some bread. It is exactly what they promised. Light to medium in body with lingering sweetness.
