3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. Thereís 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. Thereís a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, with there being a moderate amount of carbonation. I think itís 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 Iíll have a fresher bottle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Feels oily, buttery smooth. Creamy and milky. Touch of pleasant grit. A really beautifully balanced beer: by turns roasted, nutty and slightly sweet.
