COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Picture custardy French toast, infused with cinnamon and vanilla, fresh from the griddle and drizzled with warm maple syrup. Now picture that in a glass. Boom. Mind blown.

Bottle from Homer321 not exactly my type of thing but certainly can appreciate. Really smells like mamas French toast which I do enjoy. Tastes of toffee, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, and lactose. Sweet but not in the way I feared. Some alcohol presence and sugary aftertaste.

In a recent discussion, I said that it’s one thing that FB can succesfully create these flavors. But its an entirely different thing to make a beer people want to drink. This is yet another example. I should know better than to keep buying these concoctions. Yes, it smells and tastes like french toast. Not just the cinnamon and maple, but that eggy bread part is there too. But its sweet, heavy, doesn’t taste much like beer except for the warmth of some alcohol.After about 3 -4 for curiosity, I was done. I can’t say it tasted bad, but I can’t say I really liked it either.

Pours a dark brown with a short khaki head. Maple syrup and root beer nose. Soft mouthfeel with a very mild cutting carbonation. Maple syrup and just a touch egginess in the flavor. Some root beer as well.

Tap. Pours deep, dark brown. Aroma is maple syrup, cinnamon, light roast, light chocolate, and some toasted and nutty notes. Flavor is rich chocolate and maple syrup, cinnamon, bready and toasted malts, and some faint nuttiness. Medium/full body.

smaynard6000 (975) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2016
22oz bottle. Pours black with a generous beige head. Aroma is heavily cinnamon, just like french toast. Sweet with vanilla and lots of cinnamon flavor. Medium bodied with lingering cinnamon on the palate. This is crazy good.

JaBier (6878) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear brown pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of maple, cinnamon and malt. Cinnamon, maple and caramel flavor with a slightly roasty finish. Excellent.

Klimaet (1747) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2016
Tap @ Mikkeller and Friends. Pours clear reddish dark brown with a big fluffy offwhite head. Aromas of insane maple, toffee, fudge, cocoa, dark fruits, nuts, cinnamon, vanilla. Wow! Taste has maple, toffee, dark fruits, some bitter fruits, citrus, nuts, cinnamon, vanilla. Not as good as the aroma but still insanely delicious.

7/6/16. 22oz bomber from Craft on Draft. Sorta. Crazy dead on aroma and flavor... cinnamon, syrup, bread, even a custard aspect. Gets a little sweet as it warms. Tasty!

haukur (1711) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 6, 2016
Very dark brown with a small head. Aroma is pure maple syrup with cinnamon notes, simply awesome. Fairly complex and balanced, medium to full bodied with a creamy texture, loads of maple and cinnamon notes, along with some slight roast. High on taste, high on life, this was amazing
