COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich brown ale inspired by the enigmatic monastic brews of Belgium, and the mysterious mist shrouded jungles of the tropics. Brewed with real cacao, and spiced with cinnamon and sweet orange peel for a sensual delight. A brew to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed!

Similar to other JP brews. Pours amber with a fruity aroma. The flavor is more sour fruit with a bit of caramel. The finish is tart and dry.

solidfunk (3892) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Ok. Pours brown. Typical Jolly Pumpkin yeast. Like a brown with the bretta. Pours brown without much head or lacing. Tap at BRU.

chucklemation (455) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Pours a hazy brown with a foamy white head. Has a tart fruit and cinnamon aroma. Flavor is orange and tart fruit. I don’t really taste the cocoa - perhaps the strong tart flavor masks it. I do enjoy the blend of tart and spice here. Very well done.

krumbum (521) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Glowing hazy apple juice brown. Big sour apple smells with a light earthyness. Sour taste that is mediated by the cinnamon and cacao nibs. Great dry flavor left over that moisten your mouth.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
750ml capped bottle pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a generous off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange zest with hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Taste is an orange zesty bitterness with some light fruit and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with ample carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. An interesting brew that is worth sampling.

BelgianBeerGal (3138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Blend 3, 2009 bottle from a trade that kept following me around. Light bronze color with a small tan head. Interesting aroma that has some citrus and a little tart funk. The flavor has more Beglian/tart sourness but not over-the-top. I probably waited a little long on this one because some of the chocolate and spice is gone just leaving some mild cocoa.

On tap at Barrels & Bottles. Amber and cloudy appearance with a sticky off-white head. Aroma of cocoa, spices, cinnamon, tart fruit, sour notes and funky yeast. Similar flavor, tart, mildly sour, lightly sweet, pretty complex and fun to drink.
