Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown
Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown is an American Brown Ale and is the 4th installment in their Backstage Series. This is an imperial brown ale brewed with hazelnut coffee. Rich, sweet and nutty malts are complimented with a large dose of hazelnuts and some mild coffee notes. It took an exceptionally long time for this beer to reach this region, so it is entirely possible the coffee has faded a good bit. I have read a lot of reviews complaining that the hazelnut flavor seemed artificial but I found it rather pleasant. Rarely does a brown ale leave me wanting more, this is one of the exceptions.
