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, Nano Brew Cleveland on 26 Nov, 2014. Dark brown color with thick lacing. Aroma is woody, nutty and earthy, very nice… Taste is nicely earthy with a nutty and a hint of caramel as well as yeast. Medium bodied, slightly creamy, soft carbonation fills the mouth. Chewy texture. Was wondering if lactose is used because the earthy hints are balanced with a good amount of sugar sweetness.

This is a darknwoody brown. Brown espresso head. Very nice mild brown ale nose. Taste is out of this world though. So creamy and full of walnut and pecan taste. The yeast is just really present and woody

I want to take this rating serious as Brad is my friend, but the numbers are always serious. With that said here is what the superest of all the spaks has to say, " 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." Of course he gave it his signature "4.1" as well.

Strykzone (5063) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Can received in a trade with awlcordell. A dark brown opaque pour. Only a little amber. The head is beige and fluffy. The aroma is not big but is complex and interesting. The flavor is just as complex. Cocoa, dark fruit, earth, and so much more. Bitter dry chocolate, oatmeal raisin cookies. This is fun to drink and is good stuff.

On tap at Daily Growler, UA. Deep reddish-brown pour. Aroma of cocoa, floral, nutty. Tastes of toffee, chocolate, earthy, brown sugar, dark fruit, spice. It’s good, but browns are my thing.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at the Jackie O’s Public House, 7/13/14. Pours a hazy red-brown color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, mild roasted malt and dark fruits. The taste is chocolate, nuts, roasted malts, hops, mild honey. Medium bodied, low carbonation, slight lingering bitterness, refreshing.

radarsock (1000) - Vermont, USA - AUG 18, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2014 Had on in town (Hounddog’s, on N. High Street, to be precise), and had paid $4.50 for the full pint. Pours a rusty mauve/pansy purple-tinted dark brown with which a foamy, light yellow head 1 and a half fingers in length stood. Tastes and smells of milk chocolate, firewood, DME, wet cotton, laundry lint, Swiss cheese, beet sugar, baked bread, and sweat. Funky, grainy, and mildly confusing. A vague honey flavor also experienced by swallow. Medium bodied.
