Thanks to Treebute for this 2017 750ML bottle, as I continue to look for the limits of my kidneys. Split with my wife.

The pour is dark red & since it’s been a while, I don’t pull out in time, & spill a little into the glass. The nose is like a battleship fired its nutmeg photon torpedoes into my nose. Wooow. Vanilla & maple brings sweetness plus a bready maltiness.

Mash & French Toast is fastball-Astudillo aggressive. Mash & Nutmeg Christmas Cookies? Nutmeg is on this like Ben Shapiro…well, he’s an idiot. Lots of nutmeg, Underneath is a sweetness that I’d I.D. as vanilla rather than maple, cinnamon (thanks for the restraint),bready malt, with a back-o-the-throat bourbon. Alcohol is present but tame. Smooth. Very smooth. Disappearing faster than it ought.

I can sense the greatness in this beer struggling to get out, but ultimately buried by a spade of nutmeg. Still a good, solid brew.

2017 mash plus French toast. Poured into proper glassware. Thanks to @2beerdogs for both.
Pours a chestnut brown with ruby highlights. Just about a finger of light tan head. Spotty lacing down the glass. The nose is decadent. Pecans, maple, cinnamon are the most prominent for me. And maybe it’s because I’m thinking of French toast but I get the white part of an egg too. It’s not a bad thing.
Starts out with with dates, strong cinnamon, maple and boozy heat. More of that white egg part. What is that called? Mellow but present bourbon and more maple goodness.
Medium bodied but expected more richness. This is very well executed beer that tastes like French toast without being too sweet.

Reviewed on 3/2/17 from notes

L - Pours a light caramel color with a fizzy off white head
S - I get caramel, sweet maple syrup, vanilla, and alcohol
T - Boy this beer hit's it on the head. I get tons of maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and dare I say some eggyness. There are caramel/maple sweetness on the finish.
F - Medium body. A bit of a dry finish.
O - I don't really like mash because I find it too spicy. But I think that's what up's the nutmeg and cinnamon spice flavors. This is a whole different experience and it's pretty awesome.
