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.

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

Cloudy brown ale with an off white head. Nutty aroma with toast and biscuits. Malty mouthfeel with a chocolate and dry malt finish. These guys continue to impress.

kidobutai (289) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2013
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.

Scrapersnbeer (1464) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2013
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.

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2013
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
