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.

Aroma: Bread and yeast aromas with strong elements of nuts. Appearance: Dark mahogany with rich tan head. Taste: Medium sweetness with faint hints of sourness at the very edges. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish Overall: A solid, well developed beer. Very nutty, but hints of dry fruit and chocolate to add some depth.

Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a very dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that recedes steadily. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of coffee and honey. Medium body with flavors of coffee, hops and sweet honey nuts. The finish is moderately bitter coffee with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Not fully organic according to the brewmaster but a solid beer regardless.

12 ounce can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy brownish/red color with about a half inch light tan head. There’s a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and nutty, the brew also smells like toasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and honey. It tastes like nuts, toasted malt, wood, honey, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, and a bit of dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and smooth with a good amount of carbonation. It’s one of the better brown ales I’ve had, glad I bought a sixer of this! $8.99 a 6-pack.

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.

Sampled at bodega many times in the past few weeks. I always skipped over this at the brewpub to choose other beers because I never was much of a fan of brown ales, this is not like other brown ales ive had. Aroma had a nice roastiness to it. Flavor had a light choc coffee flavor to it and was really easy to drink. Has some stout like properties. This is one of those beers I would love to have in cans and I could probably drink 6 in a sitting pretty easily and not be bored by it.

Draft. Excellent brown ale. Full body, lightly toasted malts, tall tan head, a little creamy... Borders on being a porter, but I really enjoy.

Medium body and carbonation.

12 oz can courtesy of StFun. Thanks. Pours a nearly opaque dark brown color with a small cream head that slowly fades to a fine film. The aroma is muted with well roasted grains, honey and bitter nuts. The taste features well roasted grains, mocha, coffee, bitter walnuts and a bit of honey. The palate was full, smooth and creamy; the carbonation was soft. Finishes medium in duration and dry. Overall: Top shelf brown ale, loved it.
