French Toast Stout, our latest #pastrystout, is a Milk Stout brewed with lactose, cinnamon sticks, vanilla beans and nearly a gallon of maple syrup per barrel. Decidedly sweet, yet surprisingly drinkable, French Toast Stout opens with a huge burst of maple syrup, lending way to caramel malt sweetness, a hint of bittersweet chocolate and coffee from the roasted malts, subtle, yet rich cinnamon spice from the Vietnamese cinnamon sticks, and just a hint of vanilla in the finish to round it all out. It’s breakfast in a glass, no fork needed.

16 oz can at share, courtesy of Rick. Black, slick oily pour with tiny ring of beige head. Aroma is just like the name, the big stack of French toast. Maple syrup hint of cinnamon vanilla. Taste follows with the lactose sweetness. Put together this is an incredible Breakfast Stout.

Aroma is dark malts and mild maple syrup, more subtle than expected. The flavor is dark malts and a complex mix of maple syrup, cinnamon and slightly spicy/acidic in the finish.

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color; only traces of dark brown are visible near the corners of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down, leaving a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of maple syrup are present in the nose along with hints of cinnamon; these intensify as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is a little sweet and has lots of flavors of maple syrup with bits of cinnamon and vanilla.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed the taste of this beer, which tasted like French toast that is drenched with maple syrup. It is very drinkable as it wasn't too sweet.

Very dark brown with a decent head at first but it quickly dissipates.

Quite aromatic with cinnamon, syrup, and french toast.

Very flavorful and like breakfast in can. French toast is very apparent with syrup and cinnamon. Rich with slight chocolate and toffee.

Feel is where it needs to be - full bodied but on the lower end - maybe could be a bit thicker as it's a milk stout.

Overall a very good beer that really tastes like they stuffed bucketloads of french toast in the mash tun and then boiled it with tons of maple syrup. I prefer the coffee version of this one just a bit more but this one is really good.

This one pours a darkish brown/black color, with a big head, and a good amount of lacing.

This smells like dusty cinnamon, light bittersweet maple, chocolate, and a kind of weird staleness on the aroma.

This isn't all that good, unfortunately. It feels flat and slick, with a stale coffee type flavor. There's not enough maple here, to add some sweetness to block out the stale astringency. The cinnamon flavor is at least subtle - that's often overdone.

This is light bodied, thin, slick, and flat, with not a ton of carbonation. It's not all that drinkable.

This needs a lot of work to make it good. It has some potential, but the base beer itself is just so flabby and underthought.
