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.

Bomber shared. Not sure if bad bottle or not but with the aroma has some coffee and moderate hops. But I get some sourness in the aroma as well as in the flavor. I get the hops in the flavor and the creaminess as well. But this sourness is a bit to much. Big light brown head that last with some decent lacing. Medium bodied beer. Hoping this was just a bad bottle.

Bottle; Pour is murky brown with a hint of amber; an off white head on the average side in this glass - average, spotty lacing is present here. The nose is mild - mild hops and a mild chocolate malt note. The flavor profile is bready malts, cocoa, a mild bitter hop note ; this is a decent brown - but a bit boring.

22 ounce bottle, bottled 7/11. Served in a mug, the beer pours a dark reddish/brown color with a half inch tan head that stayed around for a little while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. It smells like toasted malt, brown sugar, toffee, nuts and some citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like nuts, toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, and some floral and citrusy hops. There’s a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, with there being a moderate amount of carbonation. I think it’s a decent enough brew, a buddy of mine picked this up for me on a not so recent trip out of town so it was nice to try it. Hopefully next time I’ll have a fresher bottle.

Fatehunter (1371) - 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. There’s some mild bitterness in the middle to balance it out. The texture is smooth and soft. It tends towards the sweeter side, but it’s really good.

Bottled version. Overcarbonated into the glass. Had to wait for large gassy head to settle. Color is more like a deep amber than brown. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is dominated by hop layers. They overpower the malts which are hardly noticable. I wish American brewers could learn to brew more balanced brews.

Yorker (1338) - Herning, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours brown with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, coffee, nuts, and citrus - with a bitter finish.

beerbaaron (1337) - Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Unclear Brownish amber. Medium frothy off-white head, lasting with some lace. Malty, bready, caramel, nutty, rusty. Medium to light body, sweet, light citrus, nutty, little dry. Sorta tangy I guess.

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

williamherbert (1326) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Aroma is chocolate: oily ans syrupy. Crumbly cookies, slightly burnt. Hint of roasted plums. The fluffy meringue of of head lasts forever. Brownish brick red. Thick and cloudy. Head is astounding. Scant lace. Dates, plum, raisin flavors. A chocolatey base, roasted, nutty and well-malted. Hazelnut. Sweetish finish, with can sugars. Feels oily, buttery smooth. Creamy and milky. Touch of pleasant grit. A really beautifully balanced beer: by turns roasted, nutty and slightly sweet.
