The maple syrup is coming out really big. The beer is too thin for the style and I am not getting much from the base beer here. Funky Buddha is well known in Florida for their adjunct beers. I am detecting a little bit of cinnamon but it is being overpowered by the maple syrup. This beer is okay but I don't like it as much as some of their other beers that I have had. On that note Cheers! B (85-89) score range

these flavored beers from funky buddha are approaching absurdity. this is about as french toasty as it gets, believe it or not, and while it is certainly diabetically sweet, its pretty darn good too, but a small doses thing without a doubt, i had one glass from the bomber and felt bad leaving my buddy to drink the rest. sort of a brown ale base which is cool, not as dark as a lot of the ones they do and as such not reliant on the heavy dark malts and then enough flavoring to push through all that, this has the potential to be somewhat more delicate, even though it doesnt really end up being that way at all. i get a ton of cinnamon in the nose, sweet though not spicy, with a cocoa note from the malt, an obvious vanilla presence, and a sort of artificial maple element as well. the flavor is good to very good, with cinnamon still leading the way and a definitely baked or at least cooked sort of character to it from the malt, which gives it an authentic french toast vibe. this is like the kind of french toast you get at ihop, like, overdone and desserty, not some like craft bakery or hipster brunch joint, not artisanal, you know? way too sweet, but i like the vanilla and cinnamon together. more natural maple syrup would improve this, but so would a more complete fermentation. interesting and even perplexing beer, i hope to try the barrel aged version one day! huge thanks to my homie for sharing this oddity with me!

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with tan head that quickly fades. Really does smell like French Toast. Some vanilla and maple syrup aroma. Tastes moderately to heavily sweet. Flavors of maple syrup, caramel, vanilla, faint cinnamon. Very well done and good tasting brown variation.

A: poured into a snifter to a deep brown with some slight reddish hues topped be a finger and a half of dense light tan head which retains well and leaves decent lacing
S: Smells of maple and cinnamon with some bready notes. It smells just like french toast
T: Taste is maple sweetness and cinnamon with a hint of roasted malts. Swallow is more cinnamon with some more maple and a hint of toasted bread.
M: This beer has a moderate amount of body with a slightly prickly level of carbonation. the beer has a slightly dry finish as well.
O: Overall this one is interesting. It's a little adjunct heavy and there doesn't seem to be much to the base beer which is a little disappointing. I would have liked to see a little more maple out of it. Overall not bad and worth a try, but only worth trying once.
