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.

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.

Can from Jackie O’s. Pours a deep brown with an off-white head. Nose is toast, some honey, earth, and a hint of dark chocolate. Flavor is similar with chocolate, honey, toast, slight raisin, and some bitterness on the back end. Interesting brown ale.

That’s what I call a brown ale! So damn happy to finally see Jackie Os in a store near me, because I’ve seen good reviews on their stuff for years! Very complex brown with a considerable malt backbone--with just enough hop stiffness. 1st try form Jackie Os / 12oz can.

Tasted from draft at brewery. Pours a slightly cloudy dark brown with a beige head. Great lacing. Aroma is toffee and some sweet malt. Taste is robust nutty and toffee taste. Hints of chocolate. Sticky feel on the palate. Mild to moderate bitter finish. Medium to full bodied. Pretty solid brown ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olivia means olive tree .. . deep brown tan .. mild foam .. . easy mouth, really no problem on the drinkable scale .. . quite sweet, light malt and maple. .. not too bad really, needs to be balanced, more bitterness but not at all a bad brew .. . . i love trains, but being hit by one is a major .....drag
