COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brown Angel comes at you with three levels. At the heart the beer is layer upon layer of pure, delicious malt. Columbus and Amarillo hops add an intense hop presence while a final layer of East Kent Goldings delivers a delicate floral finish. This is NOT your old school brown, but a rather sexy American interpretation.

ROBC3366 (615) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Pours rich brown with a foamy tan head and lots of lacing. Tastes like sweet, dry, nutty malt with light alcohol and toffee notes. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like booze, roasted malt, and sweet cereal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 ml bottle. Pours brown with light head. Aromas of nuts, pine, dried malts, and grass. Flavors of cocoa powder, nuts, and roasted malts with a light hoppy finish. Rich for a brown. Nice.

smaynard6000 (625) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2014
22oz bottle. Pours a murky brown color with creamy beige head. Sweet chocolaty malt aroma. Sweet roasty malt flavor. Flavor runs similar to that of a porter. Bit of hoppiness underlines the mostly malty flavor. Pretty damn good for a brown ale and unqiue along those lines.

DocJitsu (908) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours a dull copper with clumps of bubbles clinging to the insides of the glass. A short khaki head forms, but settles to no more than a cap. Rich toffee, toasty malt nose. Just on the verge of becoming thick on the palate. Some heat, accentuated by the carbonation scrub. Caramel, bread, sorghum hard candy, and a note or two of coffee.

presario (4611) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
Dark brown with light quick settling foam. Dry dusty malt with strong hops. Brown ale or or black IPA? Strong flavour is a little much perhaps for a patio but it screams for a good food pairing. Small samples maybe the order of the day. Well crafted.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
650ml bottle pours a dark brown color with a huge off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is a bold grapefruit and pine hop and roasted grain bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with nice carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A tasty, enjoyable brew that I recommend highly.
