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.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Can @ home, courtesy of DrSilverworm. Thanks! Pours a brown appearance with a creamy, brown head. Roasty, nutty, caramel malty, light pancake, slight biscuity, a touch fruity aroma. Somewhat herbal, a bit woody, grassy, tangy honey, nutty, a bit roasty, burnt, somewhat spicy flavor. Not my favorite.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a very dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that recedes steadily. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Aroma of coffee and honey. Medium body with flavors of coffee, hops and sweet honey nuts. The finish is moderately bitter coffee with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Not fully organic according to the brewmaster but a solid beer regardless.

12 oz. can from a six-pack from Dutch’s. Gifted to my wife; I took some of her pour. Pours a dark, earthy brown, more orange in the narrower part of the glass, with an inch of frothy beige head that settles inconsistently. Aroma of toasted malts, mixed nuts, dry leaves, minor honey sweetness, and a bit of cocoa. Flavor of chocolate and toasted malts, earth, nuts, light honey, and dark fruits. Light-medium bodied, with fairly low carbonation and an earthy mouthfeel that finishes dry and toasty. Solid brown ale. Nice to see this locally in cans.

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

Thanks to errl for sharing this can. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is very nice with some toffee and caramel notes as well as some nuttiness and chocolate. The flavor is similar with some ashy chocolate coming through up front and some nuts and toffee also present. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
