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.

Draft at brewery. It smells like a chocolate moon pie with this kind of grain y husky thing. Pours very dark with a thin brown head. Very dry chocolate notes on the tongue. Not getting much rc cola. Finishes clean.

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large creamy light brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and a fruity finish. The taste is chocolate, tart cherries, stone fruits and a slightly vegetal note. Medium bodied and very drinkable.

Pours very dark with a small head. Good level of smokiness to it, though it was poured a little warm for me.

It pours dark brown with a light tan head. It has a sweet caramel aroma with nuttty elements, with chocolate and a some citrus hop elements as well. The citrus aromas are moderate in nature. The citrus flavors are prominent with the flavors of nuts. The are hints of caramel and chocolate flavors. The palate is bittersweet with some roast. I like the elements that are associated with this particular brew, but it resembles a cross between a black IPA and a brown ale more than brown ale.

Had as Working Manís Nudge. Taps opaque chocolate brown with a nice light tan head. Weak aroma offers a bit of toasted malt. Flavor, happily, is much stronger, featuring roast malt, caramel, biscuit and subtle toffee notes. Firm body delivers good fizz. Letís do lunch, nudge nudge!

Draft at the brewery. Small tan head sits on a semi-translucent chocolate brown colored base. Sharp carbonation mutes the initial flavor, then transitions into a roasty chocolate-malt and coffee flavor profile. Somewhat thin body, though a delicious flavor and a very clean finish. I honestly didnít know there was chocolate in this beer since it in no way shines. It tastes good, but more comes across as a standard session stout/porter than chocolate ale.

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.
