COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Creative minds are everywhere at Wicked Weed. This beer is the result of our first employee beer idea contest. Alanna and Holly came up with this idea and helped brew the beer. Brewed to embody every aspect of French Toast, we used maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and real French Toast to create a beer suitable for the breakfast or dinner table.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2014 Growler: Pitch black; creamy head somewhere between khaki & tan that quickly disperses to form a chunky ring around the beer. Aroma is nicely spiced with notes of cinnamon (heaviest), powdered brown sugar, a little roastiness, & some lighter inclusions of vanilla & maple syrup on the back-end. A touch of alcohol heat can be picked up from the nose. Taste is also heaviest on the cinnamon, but it never proves too spicy; backing of moderate maple, roasted malts with a kiss of char, faint booze, & a little bit of vanilla leading into the finish. I actually get some reminders of coffee & nuts in the aftertaste; typical descriptors likely from the malt bill, Iím sure. While I probably wouldnít smell/taste this & immediately think "French Toast", itís still a very nice spiced stout that would go great with a half-stack.

logged in from untappd - Not a fan of this. Though it lacked body and was a mess.

Tap at samís quik shop. This was much nicer than I expected. Kind of expected it to be sugar bomb, but it was much more drinkable than your average sweeter stout. Some real french toast flavor in there for sure. Well done, a familiar phrase when describing Wicked Weedís beers these days. Glad to have them in my home state, just wish they were in my town.

Thanks to tectactoe for the growler pour. Aroma is mainly vanilla and brown sugar. Also smells a bit strong in alcohol. I donít get too much French toast specially but a couple of the traits. Really creamy and full of maple syrup flavors. I like it more as I get farther down. A true breakfast beer. Would go great with any breakfast.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Pours almost black with quickly dissipating tan head. Basic stout aroma - coffee, etc. taste does not seem to include anything that ye average stout doesn't have. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice and dark pour with one finger of dense tan head.boots of spice in the nose with an almost liqeur-ish feel. Some toasted/graham cracker character. Rich and spicy flavor, cinnamon and spice big time. Medium body, spice thins it a bit.
