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.

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.

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.

On tap at the brewery. Black with some light barely coming through the glass. Strong aroma and flavor of chocolate and banana, with a sweet finish. Iím a big fan of this one.

Draft for the bourbon barrel version black as night. Good lacing brown head. The porter actually overpowers the bourbon. Not sure if that's good or not. Even the aroma lacks the typical bourbon smell. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Sandwhich in Chapel Hill NC. Pours a clear, deeper cola red. Rockier, creamy head. Sheets of lace. Nose is quite sweet, big sugar, light saltwater/sweat. Taste is decently thick chocolate porter up front finishing mealy apple, chalk, minerals. Odd aftertaste. Similar to Caribbean milk stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
