COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tribute to the Southern tradition of an RC Cola and a MoonPie. We brew Working Manís Lunch beer with biscuity malts, vanilla, and chocolate nibs from Raleighís own Escazu Artisan Chocolates. We then get a little zany and brew with a German Weizen (Weihenstephan) yeast strain to lighten the beer up and impart estery banana and clove notes. The dark beer for íround the year!
Availability: year-round, 22oz bombers at our tavern and select markets, including the Durham Farmerís Market. 5.7% ABV.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Triangle Town Center, Raleigh, NC. Pours brown with a foamy khaki head. Cola-like aroma with hints of chocolate and graham cracker. Taste is as advertised; reminds me of sweet cola, graham cracker, and chocolate. Nothing spectacular, certainly not mind-blowing, but decent. The overall score of this is at 50 as I am making my review. That seems about right.

Great write up and really wanted to like this beer but...not so much. We found it to be just a little too malty and sour.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 27, 2013
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were and left behind a transparent golden brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was nutty and brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mild mild malty aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of nutty brown malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Draft. Hazy brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of roasty chocolate. Taste is light malted milk balls. Easy drinking.

Brown ale with a hint of chocolate hidden inside. I didnt taste any banana or anything like a moon pie. Still, its easy to drink and quite good.

Billed as a beer with "moon pie" flavors, but falls closer to a dunkle weizen instead. Slight banana in the finish. Some chocolate power in there too. Light bodied with soft carbonation.
