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.

On tap at BeerDeLuxe. Great beer. Aromas of coffee and vanilla. Taste was on the sweet side, with bitter notes.

Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Smells almost exclusively like bready malts with hints of hop notes. Taste is sweet, malty, hints of chocolate, caramel, toffee, with a nice mild hop profile. Medium-bodied with a smooth, wet texture and very soft mouth-carbonation, Clown Shoes Brown Angel finishes with a nice, mild sweetness.

On draft at Diesel in Atlanta. Darker and thicker than I would have expected. Semisweet maltiness. Filling and satisfying.

Clown Shoes Brown Angel is a dim, reddish brown ale with a thick, bubbly, yellowish foam that lasts all night and leaves solid foam on the glass. It has a chocolate and coffee aroma with a good dose of citrus, grass and perfume. Itís pretty full bodied, super silky and smooth. The finish is soft and delicate. It leaves the mouth feeling almost a little tingly, like after eating a mint. It has a nice, full, well-blended, well-balanced flavor. Itís very chocolatey with some dark roast coffee. The hops provide just enough bitterness to zip the taste up and keep me coming back for another sip. It tastes a little wooden, but not resiny. Thereís a hint of lemon peel. There seems to be a hint of mint at the finish. Wow, I donít know if Iíve ever had a brown ale like this before. This is straight-up delicious. I canít put this beer down and when itís empty, Iím going to cry.

It pours a deep brown color. The body is a dark brown with a light cream colored head with some nice thick ringy lacing. The smell is all about the nuts and roasty chocolates with some slight caramels backing that up. A bit of brown sugar comes in with the hops telling you that this is a beer. The taste is superb with a roasty, sweet, malty, caramel, chocolate flavor. The nuttiness powers through into the taste. The palate is about a medium with a great balance between wet and dry around the tongue. It is very smooth and creamy, just like any Brown should be. Overall, this is superior for its style and spectacular to me.

This is a superb brown ale. Very hoppy for a brown, with a rich nutty, caramelly sweet flavor. Deep woody brown appearance.

650 ml bomber bottle at abv 6.9% bought at YATA in MOKO, Mong Kok.

Looks: Clear deep amber colour with a thick crust of yeast sediments; Explosive three and a half finger head with crumpety light beige foam which lasts for 4 minutes; Very good sticky lacing with very fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant and spicy rich amber malt, with strong sweet caramel, strong sticky toffee, strong cinnamon, nutmeg, strong dark chocolate, cocoa, citrus, orange, floral, sugar, dark bread, strong yeast, light lemon and grass. Wow!

Taste: Close to medium sweet strong amber malt, with strong roastyness, strong caramel, red fruits, cinnamon, strong spices, resin, wood, floral, molasses, strong dark bread, yeast, strong lemon, quite strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Mid to full body. Slick, smooth and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Strong amber maltyness in a solid and smooth background. Very roasty and Bock-ish. Good red fruit base with lots of caramel, then truck loads of hops take over with strong spices, cinnamon, resins, wood and fresh grass. Moderate sweetness, very dry bready with strong lemon to round. Right on excellent!

Hoppiness: Strong cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus, orange, floral, and grass in nose. Resin, wood, cinnamon, strong spices, floral, strong lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness is strong and dynamic for a lasting, high astringent oozy malty finish.

After Taste: Quite dry. Spicy, oozy and bitter to mouth.

Comments: This IBL sure packs a punch, start with very impressive head, very malty and roasty with reinforced spicy aroma and oozy lemony hops. Malt taste is not as fantastic as the chocolatey aroma but saved by fine cinnamon and woody hoppiness. It works well from start to finish. I love it and I want more!

22oz bottle. Bottled on 04/2012. Very dark brown, almost black color, light tan foam. Aroma of wooded hops and loads of roasted malts. Flavors of roasted grains, a slight spicy tingle. Follows up with a wooded hop character and earthy hop bitterness, along with the roast notes. A touch of nuttiness. Finishes with a bit of a rye tingle and some floral hops. One of the best Brown Ales Iíve had. Its rich and full flavored! (3647)
