Tap at Good Bottle. Very dark brown pour, off white on top. Sticks just barely.

Aroma, yep there's cinnamon. Vanilla, dark toffee. Bready toasted malt. Chocolate, very minor roast presence. It's just too spicy for me.

About medium body, could be considered a bit thin. Drinks easily enough, just too much for me.

Overall I just don't like Christmas or pumpkin spice brews, you need to like them to really like this.

The beer looks great. Dark as night with a nice mocha head. The smell is what you would expect. It smells like french toast! Nutmeg, cinnamon, but with some chocolate as well. I was a little disappointed with the taste. It tastes like an excellent stout, but the french toast piece was subtle. I didn't let it warm much, so if it gets to more room temperature the flavors would likely come out more. Overall, I did enjoy this beer. I wouldn't go out of my way to try it, but I'm going to try it again and let it warm to see if I get more of those french toast flavors. Still a good beer.

Growler fill from local place.

There are many interesting things going on with this beer, but it's not a home run for me. The nose comes out more as it warms, though roast and spice are the dominant flavors. Whatever I imagined a "french toast" stout would be, this isn't quite it.

On its own merit, it's a very accomplished, medium-body stout with a nice balance of dark/roasty and bright/spicy. I'd try it on tap to make sure I'm not missing something, but otherwise this is a one-and-done for me.

@ Tasty Beverage

Black with some beige stickiness on the surface that collects at the edges. Starts off smelling heavy on the cinnamon, but soon opens up with a convincing crusty toast quality and faint maple and vanilla. Flavor starts out roasty and dark with bread, light vanilla and maple well-integrated, finishing with a spicy wash of cinnamon. I was expecting something rich, but this was more toasty and bread-crusty with probably a little too much roasted bitterness to be really impressive. Medium bodied and dry with fluffy carbonation. A little booze blending into the bitterness. I usually don’t complain about a strong stout being not sweet enough, however I think it would improve things here (which is odd, seeing as how others found it too sweet). Solid and entertaining, but overrated.

Pours a rich cola color with a slight fine head. Roast, cacao and cinnamon on the nose. Taste is very much reminiscent of spiced Mexican chocolate with lots of cinnamon charter. Mouth feel is a bit thin for style IMO.
