4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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 I’ve had from Ccb.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 isn’t 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 isn’t 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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap . Medium brown hazy hue. Smells exactly like tench toast with cinnamon: sweet maple syrup, cinnamon, cake sweetness, and really nail the aroma. It’s a powerful tasting brew that smells better than it tastes, maple syrup and spicy cinnamon dominate. Syrupy body but not overly heavy
