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.

Bottle at ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting. Red amber colour, thin beige head. Lots of intense high alpha hops. Hops are a bit harsh. Very good hops but harsh. Not much of a brown ale. OK. Needs more sweet malt to balance it.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. A big, dense and rocky head, beige in color, forms over a more or less clear dark amber body. Roasted malts, some sourish notes and a nice hoppyness in the aroma. The flavor has a distinct coffee flavor, along with bitterness, pine cones, some chocolate and and roasted notes. Full-bodied, too carbonated and semi-dry. Mostly bitter finish with chocolate and roasted malts. A really pleasant brown ale. Could drink more of this. Several times. 111112

bhensonb (10933) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Bomber from Half Time. Pours dark brown with a creamy 4 finger beige/tan head. Aroma (through a lot of foam) is dark malt, chocolate and probably resin hop. Full bodied. Flavor is lots of hop, chocolate, maybe a touch of coffee, definitely pretty darkly roasted malt. It has that brown ale malt flavor, but mixed with other things. Floral finish? Can’t say no, but the flavors are so strong I’d never have seen that on my own. Complex and amazing ale.
