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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle courtesy of gen0sis, thank you! pours a crisp dark amber to light brown with a medium off white head. aroma has a ton of very nice hops, the hop profile is great throughout this brew. some light caramel, doughy and cinniamon roll notes balance the already balanced hop bill. the taste is too match, with a bit more maltiness present throughout, especially in the front. there are sweet syrupy notes in the back, and the hops are very pleasent. the aftertaste is a nice balance of light, sweet caramel maltiness and moderately bitter hop oils. the palate is great, fuller than expected, nice creamyness, oils and dryness, and goes down very very smooth. great stuff, hope to see this around more.

I really like this beer. Iím not a huge brown ale guy but, I do enjoy them. This one is special because itís essentially and IBA - India Brown Ale. All the best qualities of a brown ale, and the hoppiness of a great IPA. Bottle. Aroma has lots of chocolate and coffee notes. Taste is the same but, with a big old taste of citrus hops. Just a wonderful mix of the two. Nice hoppy finish with a taste of chocolate on your tongue making you wanting more. Iíve had the style before but, this is a standout. Iíd get it again in a minute!
