Do not buy this beer if you dislike sweet beers. It’s extraordinarily sweet, although very tasty. Founders certainly nailed the taste of French toast. I may blend it with Backwoods Bastard or Dirty Bastard for a more balanced flavor.

Oh man. This beer was amazing. Unique and flavorful, deep and rich and heavy. Tried it on tap at Founders. Pours a deep, darker amber-brown color with some mild lingering white head and some spotty lacing. Smells heavenly - like breakfast in a glass. Maple syrup, buttery richness, bread, malt, bourbon, oak and vanilla. Tastes even better, and notes of faint nuttiness and toasted bread come though. Just didn’t detect any cinnamon, but that’s ok. I would seriously drink this at breakfast...if I were a morning drinker. Smooth, rich, decadent mouthfeel that was a little creamy and coated the palate with good carbonation. That maple was so tasty, and I wasn’t used to it being in a non-stout beer. Well done!
