COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brown ale was brewed to commemorate the Lungevity Everest Expedition. Brian Oestrike the brother of Jackie Os 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, courtesy of JStax thanks! Deep chestnut pour with a modest tan head. Nice retention. Rich aroma of roasted malts, and a floral sweetness that must be the wildflower honey. Good flavor, a nice roasted component, nutty, and lightly sweet. It certainly doesnt scream honey. I want to like this more...

Pours a very dark almost black ruby color with a light beige head. Looked more like a stout or porter. Aroma is like honey covered biscuits. Taste is malty and biscuity. Dont pick up much honey in the flavor. Faint hints of nuttiness. Different. But mostly just OK.

Can, from Wolfeys... im 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.
