COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís back. And what should be in its final form. This is a 12bbl R&D run of what we believe to be the new Working Manís Lunch. The biggest change: a shift from that tricky Weizen yeast to our house ale yeast, as well as some ingredient adjustments to bring out more chocolate notes. WML epitomizes LUNCH. Itís a snack beer. Itís not intended to be a decadent chocobomb. Itís a brown ale with some chocolate in it...an afternoon beer that you can have more than one of.

Draft at brewery. It smells like a chocolate moon pie with this kind of grain y husky thing. Pours very dark with a thin brown head. Very dry chocolate notes on the tongue. Not getting much rc cola. Finishes clean.

Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large creamy light brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and a fruity finish. The taste is chocolate, tart cherries, stone fruits and a slightly vegetal note. Medium bodied and very drinkable.

Pours very dark with a small head. Good level of smokiness to it, though it was poured a little warm for me.

It pours dark brown with a light tan head. It has a sweet caramel aroma with nuttty elements, with chocolate and a some citrus hop elements as well. The citrus aromas are moderate in nature. The citrus flavors are prominent with the flavors of nuts. The are hints of caramel and chocolate flavors. The palate is bittersweet with some roast. I like the elements that are associated with this particular brew, but it resembles a cross between a black IPA and a brown ale more than brown ale.

Had as Working Manís Nudge. Taps opaque chocolate brown with a nice light tan head. Weak aroma offers a bit of toasted malt. Flavor, happily, is much stronger, featuring roast malt, caramel, biscuit and subtle toffee notes. Firm body delivers good fizz. Letís do lunch, nudge nudge!

Draft at the brewery. Small tan head sits on a semi-translucent chocolate brown colored base. Sharp carbonation mutes the initial flavor, then transitions into a roasty chocolate-malt and coffee flavor profile. Somewhat thin body, though a delicious flavor and a very clean finish. I honestly didnít know there was chocolate in this beer since it in no way shines. It tastes good, but more comes across as a standard session stout/porter than chocolate ale.

UNCCTF (578) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Black with some light barely coming through the glass. Strong aroma and flavor of chocolate and banana, with a sweet finish. Iím a big fan of this one.
