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.

Can, from Wolfey’s... i’m not mad about this being around local bars at all.. plenty sweet and malty.. easy to drink and great to enjoy, was surprised by what a dark pour this beer is, its dark even by brown ale standards.

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

Chudwick (2207) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 17, 2013
12oz can - pours dark brown with beige head. Nose is vanilla and chocolate. Roasty and that’s about it. Mildly bitter. Dry finish. Mid to long finish. Hoppier than usual brown ale.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2013
12 oz can served in a chalice. Pours with a dark red-brown body topped by a small but durable head. The aroma is rather rich and complex, with chocolate and fruit cake notes. The flavor is even richer, with dark fruits and roasted grains joining the dark chocolate. Mildly bitter finish, and never as sweet as expected from a brown ale brewed with honey. Feel: medium body and carbonation; crisp with a slightly dry finish. O: a flavorful and distinctive brown ale in a can. Recommended.

Far to bitter for me. Not enough maltiness. I need to try this with a different kind if food. Pizza and onion rings may be to blame. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a respectable release from Jackie O’s that did not involve barrel aging or sourness. If it were more easy to find I would buy some. I will have to look at Lizardville next time I am in Cleveland to see what other canned offerings they have available.

Aroma / Appearance - A reddish brown base fills the glass with melted chocolate. Sandy tan head sits on top like handfuls of sawdust. Chocolate pudding, malt, and tea dregs flesh out a fresh feeling brown ale that brightens the air without being heavy.

Flavor / Palate - Malt rides on a wave of fresh brewed iced tea. A light bitter finish wraps up a balanced release that is easy to drink from start to finish. It may not be the greatest brown ale on the market. Even so this is a sign that there is more going on in Athens than just big sours and stouts.
