Bottle shared by seeswo months ago. From notes. Dark brown, red tinged, with small head. Lots of cinnamon. Backdrop of syrup and melted butter. Taste doesnt live up to that -- should be decadent and sweet, but I feel like maybe the cinnamon adds a tannic astringent element that leaves the impression of being lean and dry. Medium body with average carbonation.

Bottle. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of maple syrup, nutmeg and some cinnamon. The taste was similar to the aroma with more syrup, nutmeg, cinnamon, bread, chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Taste just like french toast, really good.

22oz bottle shared with friends. Pours a dark brown color with a tan colored head. Smells just like cinnamon french toast, vanilla, sweetness, cinnamon, toast, maple, and caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes just like a nice slice of french toast.

22 oz botle and draft multiple times. Pours a dark brown color and topped by a nice layer of beige colored foam that settles slowly to a thin film and coats the glass in lace. The aroma is pretty incredible as it is spot on for a buttered slice of French Toast covered in cinnamon and maple syrup with notes of cocoa, caramel malts, and the toasted bread to go with it. Th eflavor follows suit with the cocoa, cinnamon, caramel, toffee, and maple syrup all present and melded together nicely. Tastes delicious and exactly as you would want your french toast to taste, but in beer form. Nearly full bodied and slightly sticky and round with balanced carbonation that leads to lengthy maple syrup and cinnamon finish. The execution is spot on for what they went for here, but ultimately its too sweet to enjoy in large quantities. But in smaller doses this is a really tasty treat. Good stuff.+

Was not a huge fan of this one. Very thin and zero maple flavor. Looking forward to trying the BA version.
