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 pours dark brown mahogany color with a dark tan head that fades fast. Aroma is nutty, very malty, almost a cracker jack like smell. Taste is also very nutty, and sweet malt notes, reminds me of peanut brittle, finishes with a bit of bitter slightly burnt taste. Not too bad, hoping to soon see more of Jackie o’s offerings bottled and canned up soon.

On tap at Jackie O's. Medium brown pour with a nice tan head. Good lacing. Rich chocolaty malt, honey. Enough hops to balance the sweetness. Medium full mouthfeel. I'm not usually a fan of Brown Ales, but this one was very tasty. The honey added a nice layer of extra flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good for the style; a cloudy and fairly opaque brown with light beige lacing. Smells nutty and malty. Tastes like it smells with a bit of roast. Average on the palate. Not bad.

Sampler flight on tap at the brewpub (Athens, OH). Pours a richly hazed brownish hue, darker in the body with some glowing mahogany edges. Darker with a firmly sized frothy tannish head that laces ok overall. Aromas are touches of honey oat, wheat bread, and some carmelization. Distinct nutty aroma, touches of cocoa, some caramel and biscuits. Initial is medium bodied, perhaps a touch lighter giving toffee and biscuits, touches of honey, some nutty malty elements mix with gentle cocoa, some crisp carmelization. Touches of mellow sweetness, dark carmelized sugars, nut and honey elements and cocoa. Backend and finish offers some darker malts, brown sugar, and cocoa. Pretty solid, good flavors.

Draft. Somewhat hazy medium brown in color with minimal head on top. The aroma is very nutty with caramel and toffee. Sweet caramel and honey malt base with a great balanced, nutty flavor. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. A good beer from Jackie O’s that for once doesn’t try to be too much. I approve.

he aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, light berries, and a hint of nuttiness. It’s a reddish-brown with some transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts with caramel, berries, and chocolate. Finishes with light roasted nut notes and a hint of earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

This poured a lighter brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light nuts, toasted malts and some honey. Flavor was very sweet upfront from the honey, then finished with a somewhat bitter and roasted aftertaste. OK
