I found Lumber Lung (what a name) at the big Cork and Barrel (nice store) in Lawrence, KS while on a road trip to rock/pop/metal paradise. This brown is dark - cola dark, without much head to speak of. Too bad, would have been beautiful. I've never smelled beer like this before. Think of burned popcorn. The main flavor here is burnt lumber, slightly bitter at that. The char is pretty overbearing, but you can still pick up on some chocolate and malty goodness. It's a pretty med/heavy feel, but I'd like more fizz. Overall, I was glad to try these guys for the first time. Would pick something different next time.

Pours dark brown with fast fading white head

This is an oak aged brown and you get a bit of the barrel but very little. Roasted grain and coffee tones in nose

Mouth feel is medium bodied and carb

Flavor is roasted grain, burnt coffee, charcoal and bitter chocolate

Finish is worst part like an ashtray; finish brings down taste and overall for me
