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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
