7oz Bottle via Honuswagner. graci’. The smell can be described in one word: "Jesus". well, here’s a few more words for shits & gigs: Marzipan, handmade by Jesus himself. Lots of almond notes in the nose. It sits in the glass a yellowish color and headless. This is a sticky sweet concoction, but god damned is it good. So retardedly dessertish...marzipan and banana, coupled with some pecan, and healthy dose of sex, love, and rock n roll. Fuelish aftertaste of sweet sex, and of course, almonds. rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2011

Pours a flat golden color with no head. Aroma is banana french toast vanilla creme brulee vanilla wafers that made love with juicy cherries and ejaculates delicious cordial booze aromas into the nostrils. Flavor is much the same, but with a good but subtle ole kick of grandpa’s hard stuff in the finish. (his good stuff too, the one you’re going to get in trouble for drinking).
Best aroma ever, taste is great too. Best mead i’ve ever had! BOLTZ7555 (3028) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2011
Bottle shared by Dasilky1 at RBWG. Damn, Kuhnhenn makes some amazing meads...will definitely pursue these in the future!!! As expected, bright honey colored pour with zero head. One wouldn’t expect much from the syrupy, still liquid. Extremely fragrant with freshly grated cinnamon, split vanilla bean, sliced banana, and brown sugar. Actually get some nutmeg, maple syrup, and cake batter as well. Sticky, thick, but oh so divine!!! mikem409 (2032) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2012

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. brystmar (1314) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2012
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! Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 28, 2012

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 shared with Greg, tnx man. Pours beutiful darkish yellow . Aroma is intense almonds marzipan sweet bananas. Flavor so sweet balanced almonds barrel some vanilla bananas. Good lonnglived sweet almondy finish. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2013
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!
