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.

Leighton (17454) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London - many thanks to Seth for bringing this from the States. Pours clear amber with a creamy, tan foam head. Lots of milky hazelnut coffee on the nose. Big sweet flavor, lightly roasty, with rich hazelnut coffee creamer, dusty cocoa, vanilla. Medium to full bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Lightly warming finish with lots more sugary hazelnut creamer, vanilla, creamy coffee. The beer is probably a bit too sugary for most, and the hazelnut coffee character is strong. A decent sipper.

yngwie (16306) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a clear, dark amber body and a dense, finger-thick light beige head. There’s a lot of vanilla on the nose, with hazelnuts, caramel, some roasted hints, and a resemblance to creme brulee. Chocolate too. It’s quite dry on the palate, with pleasant carbonation. Coffee, milk chocolate, nuts and caramel in the flavor, along with vanilla. Sweetish finish with milk chocolate and creme brulee. Well, it certainly tastes good, but it’s also very much over the top. 121109
