Bomber bottle: Brown as expected with an initially big frothy head that strangely did not produce any lacing. WOW what an aroma, pure up initial French Toast with lovely maple sugar, cinnamon, toast, vanilla, touch of coffee and even a faint whisper of egg. One of two issues I have here is that the bitterness interferes with all that sweetness on the palate, adds a "tinny" metallic note that is unwelcome. Still enough of that French Toast thingy to make it drinkable. Lastly, this should be sticky and gooey on the tongue but alas too carbonated and thin. Ultimately a gimmick that ends up being a letdown once you taste it.

Tap at Oblivion. Deep brown pour. Huge French toast nose, even getting the eggs. Smooth clean malt, cinnamon bread and hint of egg. Awesome.

Pours thick dark more black than brown with a beige head. Aroma brings the maple and cinnamon very prevalent and easant but not overbearing in the nose. The flavor is unbelievable, as FB knows how to do anything for someone with a sweet tooth! The malty brown malt flavor switches quickly to cinnamon and maple really big and so delicious, settling like a delicious bite of French toast lingering long and beautifully on the palate with some toasty malt flavors as well!

Draft. Clear brown color, tan head. Aroma of burnt French toast. Taste is an accurate knock off, including the egg coating. Gimmick? yes. Sweet? of course. But it works well enough.

Medium beige head atop crystal clear dark brown body. Aroma is sweet, maple syrup, some cinnamon, light smoke. Taste is sweet, maple, light cinnamon, cola, smoke. The light smokiness lends the feel of the french toast being made over a campfire. Medium body, some stickiness.

Draft at that dump Churchville, please send the beers to the city instead of this terrible establishment Ryan. Cheers. Smell is as goo as any maple/cinnamon beer I have encountered. Saigon cinnamon, wood, maple, French toast challah egg bread. Flavor was more biting and astringent than aroma but still great in my book. Fingers smelled like a maple syrup kingpin blunt wrap for an hour or two after the event. Knockout.

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.

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.
