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, I’m sure. While I probably wouldn’t smell/taste this & immediately think "French Toast", it’s still a very nice spiced stout that would go great with a half-stack.

Keg at the downstairs tasting room. Pours a dark brown with a medium sized frothy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, dark fruits, chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, maple, dark fruits. Medium bodied, lingering spice. Nice beer.

Dark pour with some lace. A little hot on the back end and I do not pick up the maple syrup much. Ok but not great.

Pint at Bottle Revolution RDU. Good aroma sweet. Chocolate, cinnamon. Dark orange brown color, OK had and lace. Sweet flavor.heavy body thick creamy oily mouthfeel. Sweet finish. It’s nice, not quite what I ess expecting, didn’t masked me think French toast, but a nice big stout. Call it a cinnamon stout.

Growler shared at the Foothills bottle share... thanks for setting it up, Mike! Damn they nailed the french toast here! Loads of cinnamon sugar with moderate maple and dark chocolate notes. More please!

Tap at sam’s 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 Weed’s beers these days. Glad to have them in my home state, just wish they were in my town.
