COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Frangelic Mountain Brown is the quintessential taproom “one-off” beer: Founders’ brewers created the Mountain Brown series for their taproom in Grand Rapids in 2007. Frangelic Mountain Brown is the 16th iteration in the series of popular brown ales—and it likely won’t be the last. The singular characteristic of this beer comes from the use of hazelnut coffees in the brewing process. The beer has distinct aromatics with sweet and nutty flavors beautifully balanced. Founders is known for its beers made with coffee (i.e., the Breakfast Stout series), but this is both the brewery’s first brown ale and its first beer brewed with hazelnut coffees to be bottled. It clocks in at 9% ABV.

Bottle to glass. Pours a medium to deep brown color with a light tan head. Aroma still has a massive hazelnut presence, despite its age. Toasted malts, light coffee, hazelnuts. Very nice.

Bottle share, aroma of nuts and roasted malts, pretty good, but old bottle and flavors have aged well, a little thin now, hopefully they make some again like cbs ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at James’ for a tasting with Ferris and Kraddel. Pours a clear brown with a thin white head. Nutty with a bit of black pepper, a touch of wood. Musk and nuts. Lingering toast and hazelnuts. Tasty enough, but a bit sweet.

Cybercat (5962) - Georgia, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Pours opaque mahogany with a thin light tan head. Roast malt aroma has a peppery overtone. Flavor has malty, caramel, nutty and spicy notes, the latter mostly cinnamon and pepper; thankfully, the pepper is not as strong as in the aroma. Where’s the coffee? Texture is firm and smooth, if not too fizzy.

Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy amber with small beige head. The aroma is chocolate and graham cracker. Thin mouth with light chocolate, hazelnuts, light dry finish, very good.
