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.

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.

annunz123 (809) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Aroma has nuts, dark fruit, coffee and a little metallic tinge. Flavor starts sweet and nutty, with some roast coffee bitterness in the finish. This is the first beer from Clown Shoes Iíve tried, and Iíll definitely try more.

Thisis12ptfont (781) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Aroma of faint brown sugar, plum, apricot and rum. Solid brown with little foam and some hop residue. Subtle flavors of amber malts, burnt sugar, sweet, candied caramel and a very sweet molasses on the finish. Overall, a bit too sugary and sweet for my taste. Iíd give this a B rating.

Pours a amber brown with a two finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, nuts, caramel, sweet malts, pine, and some grassy hops. Taste is toasted malts, nutty malts, pine, grassy hops, sweet malts, caramel, citrus, light booze, and some toffee notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice, robust brown ale.

Johnsense (704) - - NOV 14, 2011
Bomber shared with Sammy and friends. Pours brown with a massive head that laced the glass. Some chestnut, coffee and toasted brown sugar in the aroma. Taste of assorted nuts, brown sugar, caramel toffee, some hops, bitter coffee with cream - quite tasty. Bitter aftertaste. Very drinkable. Not quite what I would expect for the style.

hivemind (693) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2011
On tap @ RnH. Dark brown pour w red hue. Small to medium off-white head. Aroma is of hops, unroasted nuts like almonds and sweetbread or pumpernickel. I think of a bakery when first walking in. Palate is smooth with light nuttiness and no roast, a big plus in the style for me. Some dried fruit even -- maybe a remnant of the last offering, but I taste it. Easy to drink.

dagimp (685) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Pours a very deep brown, bordering on black. A couple inches of brownish white head but little lacing. Aroma is dark and malty. Plenty of chalk, dark malt and cocoa. Mouthfeel is dead on. Not heavy like a stout, but more porter-like and dry. Carbonation is perfect. Taste is chalky with with plenty of dark flavors such as chocolate, chalk, some berry, cocoa, red wine and a wee bit of grassy hops. Overall, a very good beer. Didnít wow me but very well constructed.
