mathieuc (1893) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
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.

czar (5243) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
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.

Minderbinder (2337) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
EBF. Pours brown with medium beige head. Aroma is of spices, molasses, roasted malt. Taste is of lots of spices, cinnamon, malt, sugar. Palate: Medium body, medium carbonation. Overall: Nice.

tom10101 (3613) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
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.

vtafro (4424) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2015

Rustyham (1781) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 20, 2015
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.

Tap. Very deep brown with one finger head. Sweet maple with brown sugar, vanilla, caramel, cinnamon. Nailed the french toast aspect. Excellent flavor.

Dark brown pour. Nose and taste of french toast. Creamy mouthfeel. Maybe the best brown ale I’ve had.
