22oz bottle shared with friends. Pours a dark brown color with a tan colored head. Smells just like cinnamon french toast, vanilla, sweetness, cinnamon, toast, maple, and caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes just like a nice slice of french toast.

FB nailed another adjunct beer, and this might be the most impressive that I've had. Not necessarily my favorite, but its hard to imagine someone making a beer that tasted more like french toast than this did.

Everything from the nose to the finish was on point; feel was nothing notable, but I don't think that was important - and considering I had it pretty early in the day I almost enjoyed the thinner feel.

Overall, this is a must if you like maple syrup etc in your beer.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a J. Wakefield OG teku glass.

A: Dark brown, just mildly translucent, with a thin light tan head that fades quickly to a ring of foam. A good blush of visible carbonation initially dissipates fast.

S: Really nice here – incredibly “French toasty”. Maple syrup and cinnamon, creamy vanilla and bready malts that are lightly toasted. A lactose creamy sweetness. You can imagine an almost eggy feel, it smells so much like French toast. Wow – really good.

T: Maple syrup and cinnamon, sweet vanilla and a bready malt body. A light nutmeg goes hand-in-hand with the toasty character. Sweet malts with light toffee notes. The cinnamon and maple persist throughout the drink and into the hang with sweet breadiness.

M: The body is a bit lighter than expected, but probably average for an American Brown (not "Double"). A low alcohol presence and average carbonation sensation.

O: The good part of this beer is that it tastes amazingly like French toast. Bad part is it’s pretty sweet (though partially balanced by spices) and not something that I think I could drink more than one 12 oz. pour...or maybe even less. I find it difficult to rate to style (whatever a "Double Brown Ale" really is). But if drinking French toast sounds good to you, I don’t think you could do better. But nothing I’d drink a ton of for sure.
