Clown Shoes Brown Angel has a thick, soapy, cream-colored head, a hazy, standard brown appearance, and splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is of cream, deep-roasted barley malt, brown bread crust, and a slight maraschino cherry note. Taste is of all those things, with a notable alcohol pick-up and even stronger deep red cherry. Tea tannin shows itself, and a straight-forward bitterness is detected. Mouthfeel is heavy medium and somewhat slick, and Clown Shoes Brown Angel finishes wet, rich, a little boozy, interesting, and delicious. Overall, this is a must-buy beer! RJT

From a tap. Small but very creamy-looking head, inviting dark brown color. Not much of an aroma, but a nice flavor with malts and nuttiness. As creamy as it looks.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of caramel and chocolate and some random dark fruits. Reddish mud brown color. Flavor is more nutty but also more bitter than most browns. Thicker body that’s not overly filling. Couldn’t resist the offensive name, and look at the girl...she’s wearing the shoes.

Not my favorite by these guys but still a solid brew. Malts definitely are more pronounced than the hops, but that is to be expected. Solid chocolate, caramel and dark fruit notes
