4.02/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a charcoal color and a two inch tan head; plenty of lacing sticks to the tulip

Smell: Chocolate fudge, toasted bread, cinnamon sugar, vanilla and a touch of maple

Taste: Crusty bread and chocolate fudge, up front, with the cinnamon sugar and maple tones building; finishes rather sweet with a wallop of vanilla

Mouthfeel: Full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Well, Wicked Weed hit what they were going for but after half a glass, the sweetness of the beer gets to be overwhelming; I wouldn't try it again but will keep the rating up because it is still a good beer

8.4% ABV. per growler label.Pours a dark chocolate brown with some deep brownish hue,a thinner beige head atop.Cinnamon toast really stands out in the nose along some vanilla,yeah it really does smell like French toast.Warming cinnamon spice and syrup flavors with a tinge toast,vanilla takes over into the finish and lingers.Wow this is pretty cool,although it gets a bit sweet after awhile the flavors are great.Great concept and a great beer.

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.

@ 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.

Had this on 2015-01-10 at the brewery.

Aroma is french toast and mapke syrup. Taste is similar but wirh more char. Not a ton of maple but pleasantly present. Rich thick feel.
