Nice clear golden pour and wonderful nose that smells like french toast with a little booziness from the bourbon barrels. The taste is simply like drinking french toast with a hint of bananas. Love it.

Big thanks to my sister 15_to_Kuhnhenn for sending me this. I owe you. It pours clear gold with some nice legginess. The aroma goes nuts as it goes from super smooth sweetness to vanilla to a sliver of banana to a toastiness to toasted bread to a dash of maple and then a touch of chemical booze. The taste is smooth goodness with a pleasing toastiness that runs straight toward being roasty as well as rich honey sweetness, a maple syrup like note, a bit of banana and sweet vanilla. Behind all of those notes is a modest level of chemical booze. All these notes go oh so well together. YUM.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2013 2012, thanks Joel. One whiff and...holy moly, this is incredible! Immersive French toast aroma. I can smell the butter, toasted bread, and the powdered sugar on top. Geez. Get me a scented candle of this ASAP. Sweet honey on the palate gives way to bananas and vanilla. Banana really shines towards the end, and I swear there’s maple syrup in the aftertaste as it descends. Cinnamon clings to the back of my throat. Mildly boozy. In a word? Transcendent. Need moar!

Bottle: The aroma consists of banana, vanilla, butter, syrup, and light alcohol. One of the best smelling "beers" I’ve had in a long time. It pours a transparent gold with a few bubbles that eventually fade leaving the liquid look still. A swirl leaves some sticky legs on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate banana, vanilla, and the slightest hint of apple. The finish has maple syrup, a touch of butter, and alcohol. It’s medium bodied with minimal carbonation. Overall, it’s crazy how they got the butter flavor in there to actually make it taste like French toast.

Bottle @ Crooked Stave ROY-G-BIV Day. Huge thanks to Travis from CS for sharing this one with some of us. WOW! This mead smells stupid good. So hard to explain except that it literally smells like Cinnamon French Toast - bourbon maple syrup, cinnamon, somewhat nutty, buttery, butterscotch, coconut, and nice spice. Taste is mouth-watering - super sweet, cinnamon, bourbon french toast pancakes - vanilla, butterscotch, and sweet caramel syrup. Light body with soft carbonation. This one is totally worth the hype!

Tasting courtesy of dschiller. Bottle says Bourbon Barrel Banana French Toast Mead, didn’t see that available, posting the rating here. Pours a lovely gold color and it coats the glass with a nice glaze. Aromas are butter, banana, cinnamon, bread, toast, nuts, raisins, and maple. Flavors are butter, nuts, toast, maple, banana and something that is more a cream-type flavor. Palate this is super thick and heavy but not overpowering in any way. Overall, this is one of the best drinking experiences I have ever had, tastes just advertised like a great plate of banana french toast; absolutely fantastic!

Huge thanks to Brad at Jackie O’s for sharing this one in honor of Rachael’s birthday. Clear yellow in color with no head and some legs. Aroma of cinnamon, maple, almond, bread, egg and slight banana. Bread and cinnamon flavor with almond and egg before a semi-sweet maple and banana finish. Truly outstanding.

Rated on 7-24-2010 at the Ratebeer Summer Gathering in Grand Rapids, MI. This bottled mead has a transparent golden body. The aroma is sweet, banana bread, honey, and vanilla. The taste is sweet, honey, banana bread, vanilla, and alcohol. The palate is tingly and this mead is medium bodied. Overall, this is one heck of a great tasting mead! The flavors come together extremely well, smells like banana bread, worth trying and definitely a mead that I will drink again if it comes my way! Nicely done, Kuhnhenn!
