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.

Fatehunter (1404) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours a finger and half of light tan head on a brown body. The aroma is extra nutty, roasted and toasted malt and a touch of lemon. The taste is a well rounded roasted malt and chocolate flavor. Thereís some mild bitterness in the middle to balance it out. The texture is smooth and soft. It tends towards the sweeter side, but itís really good.

Caytinator (966) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2014
22oz bomber. Quite good overall, highly recommended. Pours a rich brown with a nice little white head. Aroma is very earthy, hoppy and strong! Bitter flavor, but well-rounded and pleasant on the tongue. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel - great! Iíd love to find it on tap somewhere!

19-month aged bottle. Iíve never had it fresh, but I am pretty sure the aging has changed this beer in some very interesting and wonderful ways. Itís not at all what I expected, very heavy on the funk/brett flavor, with lots of Belgian character. Fairly sour. The hops are pretty subdued. Plenty of caramel and roasted malt. Thick creamy head. Chewy, sticky palate.

4/27/2014. 22 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Hoppy and malty aromas with dark fruit, caramel, molasses and light spice. Good balance between hops and malt.

Cola brown. Nice rich nuttiness, a little spice from the alcohol. Pretty tasty beer.

@ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Slightly hazy dark brown with a rocky 1" tan head, stripes of lace. Taste is full flavored malt that adds touches of coffee and chocolate as it moves through a mildly hopped palate. The finish is pleasantly chalky-bitter with coffee. Uncomplicated, easy to drink, balanced, recommended.

From a 1 pint bottle. Roasted malt aroma, deep brown colour, pleasant hops fruit flavours and malt smoothness, subtle hints of coffee and chocolate. I really like this beer, Iíd happily drink it all day.

UncleKorm (897) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bombe bottle poured a hazy brown hue w/ huge tan frothy lasting head. Moderate aromas of roast, floral hop, and caramel. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light bitter finish of moderate duration. Tastes are roasted malts, brown sugar, caramel made right up to the point before being burnt. Medium bodied and slight watery mouthfeel.

LinusStick (2887) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
A solid brown ale. Aroma was almost winelike for some reason. Also had big malty notes. Toffee and burnt caramel. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger light tan head. Taste was big and malty at first. All the strong toffee and chocolate flavors were quickly washed away by strong bitter hops in the finish. Perfectly balanced beer that almost borders a black IPA. Nice beer.

Bottle into Teku glass. Pours a beautiful dark brown/red, nice 1 finger creamy light brown head. Bread, nuts, some chocolate maybe, toffee and even some sour brett maybe? Very nice balance between sweet and sour/dry, light sweet/sour, with perfect bitter close and lingering subtle maltiness. Very enjoyable DBA, would buy again.
