Frangelic Mountain Brown is the quintessential taproom “one-off” beer: Founders’ brewers created the Mountain Brown series for their taproom in Grand Rapids in 2007. Frangelic Mountain Brown is the 16th iteration in the series of popular brown ales—and it likely won’t be the last. The singular characteristic of this beer comes from the use of hazelnut coffees in the brewing process. The beer has distinct aromatics with sweet and nutty flavors beautifully balanced. Founders is known for its beers made with coffee (i.e., the Breakfast Stout series), but this is both the brewery’s first brown ale and its first beer brewed with hazelnut coffees to be bottled. It clocks in at 9% ABV.

Smells almost exclusively of hazelnut... very little coffee aroma and very little in the way of typical brown ale character. The flavor is very tasty. Sweet milk chocolate, hazelnut, and mild coffee come through on the palate. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but clean.

Wow, I did not expect this but you know what Its good. Really heavy handed hazelnut coffee flavor that is much stronger then I expected. The more I drank it though, the more I enjoyed it. The flavors may be excessive but they are well done and quite good.

Tap at Brewhaven. Fresh roasted coffee and hazelnut aroma. Aroma alone, I could drink this stuff for breakfast. Amber with a small beige head. Roasty coffee malt, hazelnut, astringent, black pepper flavor with a roasty bitter finish. Light to medium body, light carbonation.

Bottle (thanks Brad) poured into a snifter: Well the aroma of hazelnut is impressive, and you sense your in for a treat. Very easy to drink brown ale with great flavor. Fun and enjoyable. Really enjoyed this and hope to have more.

750 bottle (thanks to AndyReynolds) - pours murky brown with tan head. Nose is chocolate, wood and hazelnut. Flavor adds alcohol and toastiness. Dry and bitter finish. Lightly sweet.

Tulip pour, deep brown, light, thin head. Aroma is intense. Fantastic! Coffee, super hazelnut, smooth and sweet, caramel. Flavor is slightly less, good hazelnut notes, smooth creamed coffee, nutty, caramel sweetness. Really nice. Palate is a decent medium with light lacing. Fantastic!
