I am probably the outlier on this one but I poured it out. Dark black color. Aroma was mild spice. The flavor was like cola, not french toast. I just couldn't drink more than a couple sips.

Look-Pours a deep, dark brown, thin head that doesn't stick around

Smell- cinnamon, sweet, roasty

Taste- very sweet, cinnamon, chlorine

Feel- dissipates quickly, smooth, no real lingering taste

Overall, I'd get this again but it doesn't have a complex or powerful flavor profile. I'd recommend this to a rookie who wants to try a stout.

500mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. Bottled 12/28/16. Served in a Wicked Weed snifter.

Pours a dark chocolate brown but rests in the glass essentially black. Two fingers of pale tan head gradually fade to a thin veneer and fluffy crown, imparting some scattered, thin wisps of lace.

Aromas os cinnamon, maple, chocolate, roast and some faint vanilla. I'm not sure that I get French toast but it smells pretty good.

Cinnamon greets the palate right up front. That ubiquitous breakfast spice is joined by chocolate malt, mild coffee, maple syrup, old caramel, a whisper of vanilla and a subtle booze heat. As in the nose I'm unsure of just how much French toast I get but the end result isn't bad.

Medium body with soft edges and moderate carbonation. Vanilla creeps in more in the finish, complementingthe cinnamon, chocolate and maple syrup.

Wicked Weed's French Toast Imperial Stout is some pretty good stuff. It's far from the best I've had from the brewery but still a quality offering.

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.

Muted blackish with a moderate fuzzy tan head that settles to a persistent thin bubbly blanket and brown edges.

Smell is actually a little mint chocolate somehow, possibly due to the hops, with hints of roasted coffee and toast, and even lighter hints still of cinnamon and maple syrup.

Ahh, there it is--the cinnamon-maple combo comes up front on the palate, but not ostentatiously. Beer flavors still play a major role, with bitter, roasty coffee and cocoa-esque malt, plus a little astringency again--are there too many hops in this? This not the right beer for strong hops. I also detect some light nutty flavors, rum soaked vanilla bean and cola on the back end.

Feel is a little thin, with a slight, thin froth and a semi-dry finish.

This is not the beer I was led to believe it to be by a normally trustworthy friend. However, it is beer first, and not some overly flavoring-infused Coffee Mate bullshit. It is on the much lighter side of the stout world, though.

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.
