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.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, cocoa, hops, pine, roasting, and toasting. Poured brown in color with a large, foamy, dense, rocky, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of malt, roasting, hops, pine, toasting, resin, and some cocoa and caramel. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average to slightly lively carbonation. Malt, hops, pine, resin, toasting, finish is lightly sweet and medium butter. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Pours out a moderate brownish color with a small white head. Aroma is of light hops, some lingering sweetness, caramel and some nutty notes. Taste is caramel, toffee, sweet dessert bread, and a nice bitterness on the finish. Solid brew.

bottle. deep brown pour with a medium sized, whipped tan head. nose of caramel and nuts but not as brown as it looks. notes of cola. flavor has light nuts and caramel with handful of melted milk chocolate. i do like the chocolate flavors, but i really like more nutty/toasted notes in browns. the floral finish pretty nice. overall, i like the idea but a few tweaks would work better for me personally. one of their better offerings though.

22 oz bomber from another trade with simth4498, thanks Jason. Poured an ugly muddy orange/brown with a tiny foamy beige head. Aroma reminds me of a black IPA with the strong hop prescence over a solid malt body. Citrus hops, yellow grapefruit meat, tootsie roll, brown toast crust. Flavor of chocolate, tootsie roll, hard roll, citrus rind, grapefruit. Nice body with stonger carbonation over a slightly watery body, strong biter finish that lingers. This is yet another good beer from Clown Shoes.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a good size two finger thick light tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma and flavor is light floral hops and toasted malt. Has a cola, herbal hop finish. Medium body. A nice beer.

Bottle. Aroma is slight roasted malt, some chocolate, all coated with hops. Flavour is quite hoppy, but very mild in bitterness, some toasted notes along with some coffee. Nice brown ale.

On tap at Monsters of beer 2011. Pours a dark amber with a small frothy off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a raisin malt and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with sweet caramel malt flavor. Easy to drink a very good brown ale from Clown Shoes.
