3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Hullabaloo. Looks like a big glass of chocolate milk with a light brown head. Smells like French Toast. Prickly carbonation with an almost woody bitterness that gives way to lightly toasted malts, cinnamon, and pancake highlights. Hints of maple syrup. Good body and mouthfeel.

Huge huge cinnamon and vanilla up front. Some maple shines through in the taste. Lack of depth and a little on the watery side. Wish there was more smooth brown malt to wash down the big flavors. Good recreation though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
EBF. Pours a dark brown with a thin offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of maple syrup and french toast (cinnamon and toasted grains). Taste is of cheap and fake maple syrup, french toast-y and moderately sweet. Body and carbonation were both medium. Overall an OK novelty but not something worth having more than once.

sample @ EBF 2015. unclear medium dark brown, orange tint, with a small creamy off-white cap, some lacing. loads of perfumey vanilla - fresh gousses; sweet brown malts, hazelnuts, coffee - relatively fresh, minerals, hint of smoke, sweetness - dark demerara and maple syrup; earthy grinds and resin. light to low carbonation, medium body - oily, sweet maple, vanilla and earthy finish. another borderline artificial FB offering. quite unique and tasty for sure.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @ EBF.
Appearance: Brown with a nice medium tan head and good lacing.
Aroma: Really smells like French toasts, cinnamon, maple, banana, caramel and vanilla notes.
Taste: Quite sweet. French toasts, cinnamon, maple, caramel, vanilla and a bit of cloves.
Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. A bit oily. Lingering french toast finish.
Overall: Far from my favorite Funky Buddha beer. It gives a super realistic aroma that match the name of the beer, but this one feels a bit artificial. Not easy to drink.

Tons of great flavor, slightly sickly sweet. A good roastiness, and tons of maple falvor. Not much bread flavor though. I would have preferred that.
