this is quality stout, the adjuncts arent over the top in it, and even though the barrel aged version of this is a big step up, i enjoyed this one. it doesnt really conjure images of maple drenched french toast to me though, and im not sure it could being a stout as a base beer, lots of dark roast and coffee flavors in this, which, while compatible with the added ingredients, does not necessarily scream french toast to me. the cinnamon is subtle in the nose, with the vanilla being by far the most forward and obvious element. the flavor is more balanced between the three, and i do get the maple in the finish. lots of sweetness here, on the edge of a novelty item rather than a beer to reach for more than once, but its super well made, just perhaps intentionally a bit overdone. dark chocolate from the grain, sweet vanilla, definitely desserty more than breakfasty, but i see the line of thought and think the execution is pretty darn good. having the barrel aged one right after this really diminishes my overall appreciation for it, that one just tastes like a totally different beer, truer to the french toast itself, and far more original and memorable. good beer, but i think this one lacks the signature wicked weed "oh my gosh no other beer tastes like this at all" component that they often deliver.

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

From a bottle with a bottling date of 10 Jan. 2017.
Dark brown clear body with a good head.
French toast in the nose and, more remarkably, in the flavor.
Medium full body with proper carbonation.

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.
