Notes: Picture custardy French toast, infused with cinnamon and vanilla, fresh from the griddle and drizzled with warm maple syrup. Now picture that in a glass. Boom. Mind blown.

Maple French toast goodness in a glass! Legitimately one of the top 10 beers I’ve ever had!

This one didn't meet my expectations - it was more based on other FB beers I'd had...the smell and taste were as billed, nice French toast likeness, but it was just too thin for me. I felt it was way too light for what it should have been. The bottle did have a couple years on it, but that hasn't seemed to effect other FB beers I've had, or the other attributes of this beer - feel should be less effected by age anyway.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours deep brown in color with a one-finger foamy off-white head that eventually reduces to a ring around the edge

S- maple aromas jump from the glass, along with complimenting notes of bread crust, vanilla, cinnamon, vanilla custard, toffee, bready brown malts, this smells just like french toast

T- sweet maple syrup flavor up front, followed by notes of vanilla custard, cinnamon toast, hazelnut and brown sugar. Bready malt undertones, the finish gives cinnamon and maple with a bready linger

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into the finish

O- as advertised, smells and tastes just like french toast, another winner fro FB

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker.

Deep mahogany with ruby highlights. Excellent clarity with lively carbonation. 1/2 finger of head that dissipates quickly.

Maple syrup, cinnamon, doughy bread, hazelnut, brown sugar, and caramel.

Fresh maple syrup, hazelnut, and cinnamon. Caramel and brown sugar. Doughy bread. Light earthy bitterness.

Medium bodied, silky, creamy, oily, and sweet.

Huge maple syrup presence. Tastes just like french toast.

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Pours very dark brown, nearly opaque in the snifter, with a decent tan head.
Smells like french toast with syrup with some alcohol soaked hops in the background.
Flavor: bittersweet; less sweet than expected by the finish and aftertaste. French toast with syrup and cinnamon is the dominant impression.
Feel: medium+ body and medium carbonation.

So dark brown that it's more black and very little light gets through. There's a fingernail of brown on top. The aroma is of buttery maple syrup with a hint of cinnamon. It does taste like French Toast. The maple syrup dominates here, but I like it. More than 12 ounces would be overwhelming because it is so sweet. The mouth is lightly sticky and chewy, which seems fitting.

Pours a dark brown with a little bit of lacing at the top. Smell is strongly of maple syrup, like sniffing a bottle of maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla. The smell certainly matches the name. Taste is malt, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg. Medium body, lingering taste. It is as advertised, a brown ale that tastes like drinking french toast. Certainly tasty, not overly sweet but I'd prefer this as an evening beer...or maybe first thing in the morning, heh.

Maybe I am more of a French toast fan than I think I am, but this beer is my crurent favorite beer, period. I love FB’s Morning Wood and FB’s other amazing Stouts and Porters, but this is the most drinkable of them all. Huge maple syrup and cinnamon, but... it’s Freaking amazing!!! Best beer I can get on a regular basis.

Pours a murky brown, not much lace or head, settles nicely, good color.

Aromas strong with maple, chocolate, and coffee, very similar to their Maple Bacon Coffee Porter or for you cereal lovers, that Eggo cereal that used to be on the shelves.

Cinnamon, vanilla, and maple flavors. As it warms, more of that toasty malt emerges, but overall the flavors are there and it drinks really smooth.

A tad thin, pretty heavy carb, but very smooth. Lightly sticky finish.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a half inch of foamy, tan-colored fairly long-lasting head. Solid lacing.

S: A super-enticing aroma of maple syrup, malt, vanilla, cinnamon, and chocolate.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (mostly in the finish), a good shot of vanilla, a bit of cinnamon, lots of maple syrup (the dominant element), and light chocolate notes. Yep, it really does taste like French toast. I don't know what alchemy Funky Buddha used, but it worked. It's sweet, a little heavy, and supremely focused. Very much delicious.

F: A below average amount of carbonation with a warm, syrupy finish. Medium- to full-bodied.

O: An excellent and unusual take on the brown ale. Definitely drinkable.
