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.

Canned. Nose nutty with a little dark toffee/caramel, sweet and inviting (though I may be imagining the smoke); pour dark brown with a ruby base and a rich light brown head. Taste dark and earthy, dark toffee and caramel, ruby red berry in the background and yes, some nice smoke and scorched malts. It’s sweet, and the kind of sweet that bodes ill for the margins of your teeth, but there’s a minor depth of malt and low bitterness to help (though no balance is struck). Roast is nice but trampled on, light floral notes here and there, nuts. Medium body creamy and there’s a strong suggestion of spirits, as if aged in bourbon barrels. Clean, fresh, with light vanilla bean. Gotta go slow to stave off the excess, but as a sipper it’s complex and interesting. [2016.08.31: 3.5]

Prufrockstar (1980) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Can that has been cooler-aged at a local beer store since January. Very dark pour with creamy light brown head, good retention and some lacing. Aroma is nondescript maltiness - sorta biscuit, light toffee, honey and gentle roast -- maybe a bit of chocolate, but that may just be roasty biscuit throwing shadows. Moderately sweet with a roast, moderately bitter lasting finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall: nice.

Dark brown pour with brown head. Light malty aroma. Nice flavorful brown ale, not the most aeromatic brew but plenty of nutty and honey notes with some toffee and caramel too. Finish shows off the bittering, earthy nutty hop bitterness. Solid.

I mean it's not terrible-I think I notice a little of the honey and nuttiness in the background-but it's not super special or anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jandd1983 (3831) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Can. It poured a cloudy dark brown color with a beige head. The aroma was of toffee and malts. The taste was of nuts, toffee, chocolate and some booze. Good stuff.

Pours a hazy dark brown with a tan head. Nice lacing in the glass. Aromas of raisin and dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Flavors of toast caramel and some coco. Nice ale light to medium mouth feel.

Poured into a perfect pint. Stop #2 on my JO’s CANquest raises the stakes with one of my favorite style’s being evaluated. 4.5 A: Lightly hazed dark amber light brown color. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Retention is very good and a healthy ring of lacing is left behind. Quite nice. 4.5 S: Oh boy is this a treat to cranial nerve #1. Deep, rich nuttiness flanked by toastiness, caramel sweetness, and cocoa powder. The honey is light, but does add a nice extra layer that complements the main flavors quite well. Just a touch of earthy hops. 4.5 T: Cranial nerves 7, 9, and 10 have a good time now. Nuts, caramel, cocoa again do it right with honey having a bigger role in the taste. Earthy hops again. No complaints, very good. 4.5 M: Medium body. Pleasantly creamy. Good moderate carbonation. 4.5 D: Really solid beer. Maybe I’ll actually order it next time I’m at JO’s. ★ 881 characters DavoleBomb, Mar 28, 2014

Shot (451) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Can. Pours dark brown with a rocky beige head. Aromas of brown sugar, molasses and dark fruit. Flavors are honey, gypsum, dark fruit, vanilla, cola, nutty tones and biscuit. Dry finish with earthy hops. Clean mouthfeel. This is somewhere between a classic stout and a brown ale. Malty but dry. Complex flavors! Nice beer.
