Travlr (11842) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 11, 2014
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 (3426) - 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 (4873) - 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 (4008) - 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.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2014
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.

Nickls (1847) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Tap . Medium brown hazy hue. Smells exactly like tench toast with cinnamon: sweet maple syrup, cinnamon, cake sweetness, and really nail the aroma. Itís a powerful tasting brew that smells better than it tastes, maple syrup and spicy cinnamon dominate. Syrupy body but not overly heavy

gendv138 (1330) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2014
4 ounces on draft at ChurchKey during the SAVOR Surly event. Pours dark brownish black with light tan head. Aromas of big french toast with cinnamon, syrup, toast, caramel. Tasting notes of french toast with cinnamon, syrup, caramel, sweet bread. Medium body with a dry finish. Aroma was incredible and spot on french toast.

GothGargoyle (1206) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. Clear brown with a good off-white head. Aroma is maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, bread - pretty much exactly like french toast. Medium bodied, syrupy mouthfeel, very sweet on the palate. Taste is maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, bread, honey. This really is french toast in beer form.

dchmela (2640) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Tap at brewery. Murky brown pour with little head. Huge maple syrup and toasted bread aroma, yum. Smooth light bodied taste with light roasted notes. Not much in taste.

onceblind (4067) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Hazy dark brownish amber. Smells exactly like French toast; lots of maple syrup, a touch of vanilla and cinnamon, and loads of toast. OMG it tastes just like French toast. Cinnamon, maple syrup, egg, toast, vanilla...man, thatís something else. Itís the exact flavor.
