Cask at CCB. Pours a deep brown color and topped by a small layer of beige colored foam that settles into a thin film and leaves streaks of lace around the glass. The aroma is really nice and smells just like a stack of french toast with notes of maple syrup, cinnamon, spice, and vanilla over a toasted caramel and toffee malt base. The flavor follows with the maple, cinnamon, and vanilla up front followed by some spices, dry, toasted bread, burnt sugars, and the caramel malts from the base brown ale. Very sweet with the vanilla and maple syrup, but certainly resembles the flavors of french toast. Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation that leads to a lingering maple syrup finish. Really nice treatment of the Maduro base beer, but would like to see some more roasty bitterness to balance out all the sweetness. cgarvieuk (25742) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2016

Pours a light brown with off-white head. It literally smells like French toast, period. Tastes like it too. Wow. MeerkatTampa (23) - New Port Richey, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Wow. I wasn’t expecting to like this. It’s truly like breakfast in a pint glass, with maple syrup flavor and color perfectly complementing the brown ale. I wouldn’t want to drink a 6-pack of it, but what a way to start your morning. Homer321 (5170) - Melboring, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Draft. Holy amaze balls. Nose is full of cinnamon and vanilla and coffee. Literally smells like those cinnamon rolls that come from the cardboard cylinders. Taste is sweet and full of vanilla and almost a coffee note. Probably the best beer I’ve had from Ccb.

Poured a murky brown color from the tap with aromas of malt, maple, light nuts as well. Flavors were malt, maple syrup, bread and a touch of cinnamon. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Draft on tap at Falling Rock (Denver, CO). Pours a deep brownish black ruby hue, firmer haze, frothy tannish head atop with mellow ring that laces ok. Aromas are rich maple, sweet and sticky caramel, spice and toffee. Some firm adjunct treatment on the nose. Initial is thinner, sessionworthy with spicy cinnamon, toast, some gentle maple wafts. Middle is spicy, dry, a bit more mellow and toasty. Some gentle body, earth, bread. The sweetness or firm body isn’t there for me. Spicy, dry, cinnamon toast crunch. Some gentle brown malt, earth, toast. Backend and finish show spice, earth, toast. A rich adjunct nose and flavor up front tapers out. Still some potent flavors.

Draft at Churchkey. Cloudy golden color, white head. Aroma of Freedom Toast. Taste is maple syrup on freedom toast, holy cow, best imitation I’ve seen. vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Draft. Brown pour with tan head. Brown sugar, just French toast aromas. Flavor is a light brown ale backbone with just sweet French toast forward tones. nimbleprop (8725) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2014
4oz pour at Churchkey DC and whoa... Pours a translucent brown with some thin, white head. Nose is HUGE with vanilla and maple, smells like Aunt Jemima. Flavor is like watered down creme brulee, vanilla, burnt sugar, orange, heavy vanilla. It is really wild how well they got the concept right. Still gimmicky though.
