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.

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.

Another bottle shared by Ben at the Brick Store. Pours a deep, hazy chestnut with a small beige head that recedes quickly to a small swirl of bubbles along the top. Little in the way of lacing on this one. The nose is nice and has all the characteristics of a solid hoppy brown. There is an underlying sweet caramel and toasted bread malt with even a hint of roasted coffee. But what makes it a bit unique is the fresh hops and maybe some tobacco that seems to come out as it warms. The flavor is a bit sweeter and thereís more of a citrus hop character than I got in the aroma. The backbone is full of toasted nuts and caramel malts. The finish is lightly bitter from the green hops and a bit of coffee. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with good carbonation and pretty dry for the style. This is a very well done hop-forward brown ale which is a style that I like quite a bit. Itís got a pleasant and flavorful hop presence that brings just the right amount of bitterness. I definitely prefer this to the Hoppy Feet.

22 oz bottle from Julios Liquors. Pours dark brown with some garnet. Comes with a 2 finger off white frothy head. Aroma has a sweet side, caramel and toffee, and a bitter side, bakers chocolate with a hint of citrus hops. Flavor follows the aroma with the beginning quite malty and sweet with some hop bitterness in the finish. Palate is on the heavy side with a good amount of carbonation. This is a strong brown ale. Itís brown, sweet and powerful. Pam Grier where are you?

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Poured into a mug. Bottled March 2011. Big thanks to Hojaminbag for this. 4.5 A: Clear (I think) dark brown color. Initially three fingers of creamy beige head. The first two fingers falls at an average pace, while the last finger sticks around for a long time. Good amount of irregular lacing as well. 4.0 S: Quite interesting. This is the second brew Iíve ever had that reminded me of unfermented wort (the other was Brooklyn Local 1), though obviously not as sweet. Specifically, it smells like a well hopped wort. Beyond that initial impression, Iím picking up a solid amount of nuts and toffee with caramel underneath. Pithy toastiness, if that makes sense. Raw, resiny hops. I think the wort smell works pretty well with the style. 2.5 T: Unfortunately, the wort element is also in the taste and it doesnít work too well. My other gripe is that itís a bit too bitter for my tastes. The positive is that the nuttiness returns in a big way with toffee and caramel playing second fiddle. A good amount of toastiness with earthy hop flavor. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy. Bitter aftertaste. 3.0 D: Definitely a big of a strange brew. Not necessarily bad, but Iíd really have to be in the mood for that worty taste for me to want to drink that. I usually get my fill of that, however, from sampling homebrew at various stages in the process. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-05-2011 22:30:21
