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.

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.

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.

POurs light brown with notes of light malt that shwocases a deeper carmelized sugar base that drives some decnt hops. Layers are there as you get the malt, bitter hops, and then some nuanced coffee and choclate.

22 oz. bottle served in snifter- served an almost transparent very darkened brown with hints of ruby shading, solid foamy off tan head formed, laced- soft, yet firm, like booty. Thick aroma of raisons, plums, dark caramel, slightly roasted malt, with hops trying to make itself know amongst the crowd. Hits the mouth with wide and lucious body, malt was slightly sweetened but seems to be cut with chocolate, middle holds up fine, finish winks at you wanting to you try more. I donít see whatís so offensive about the label- perhaps itís for the snots that donít know how to use their equipment- 2 minute miracle men and "layers" combined. Being in several interracial relationships during the course of my life, one was one of the best lovers I ever had. Almost 10 years after those times, I still get a smile about some of the stuff we did... DAMN itís hot in here... thanks for the memories, and damn good beer!!!

Bottle from kegs and barrels. Pours a deep ruby red slightly brown with a medium tan head. The aromas are plumb, yeast. The mouthfeel is slightly dry and bready with a medium body. This was a very nice brown ale. Cheers!
