COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brown ale was brewed to commemorate the Lungevity Everest Expedition. Brian Oestrike the brother of Jackie O’s owner Art, sumitted the unforgiving mountain on May 22nd, 2007. The climb was a vehicle to raise money and awareness about lung cancer. The people of Tibet call Mt. Everest “Chomolungma” this exceptional ale carries on the spirit of the climb. 8 Malts, 2 hops, and twenty pounds of wild flower honey give this ale an exceptional character. Baked muffins, dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, rich honey and earthy subtle hops caress the palate. Booze soaked chocolate raisins round out the warm finish. Now available in cans.

Draft at the Trolley Stop in Dayton. Pours dark brown with a thick, bubbly tan head and lots of lacing. Feels smooth and frothy, dry. Tastes like semi-sweet chocolate, molasses, burnt coffee, bitter and sweet. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like malt, burnt toast, and bitter coffee.

12oz can. Brown color. A slight smell of honey. A very thin beer. I’m really not a fan.

12oz can gifted to me by boisebeerguy85... Thanks Rich... I appreciate it!! Pours with a nice 3/4" dark tan head... great retention and nice lacing.. the brew is hazed dark brown... looks pretty turbid. Dry cocoa and roasty malt... just enough malty sweetness to make this one really jump up and kiss the olfactory system. Flavor has a mild dark fruitiness that moves immediately into the dusty cocoa and light raisin... With warmth a pretty pronounced nuttiness rises up.. dark toast with a hint of what I associate with "Tootsie Roll"... Body is medium with a lighter small bubble carbonation... Very drinkable.. but certainly something one could sit and ponder for a while... I like it. Surprised anyone is calling this "English".. It is definitely a big boned brown ale, but ’Murica has it’s stamp all over this brew.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours very hazy/cloudy dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, toast, toffee, brown bread, honey, nuttiness, raisin, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and honey notes with light hops; and good strength. Taste of big chocolate, caramel, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, toast, honey, nuttiness, light roast, raisin, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, toast, honey, nuttiness, raisin, light roast, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and honey flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent brown ale! All around great balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and honey flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
