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.

Bottle. Pours a lovely dark brown with tan head. Nice lacing. Nose/taste of mixed nuts, burnt and roasted malt and some caramel notes. Some juicy citrus mixed in on the mouth feel. Finishes a bit dry. Medium body. Nice beer.

maneliquor (3283) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Over carbonated pour. Chestnut brown body with a huge, frothy off white head. Nose is very nutty which is perfect for a brown ale this big. The main feature though, is caramel biscuit and light floral tones. Very nice nose to it. The large dose of nuts is portrayed in the taste with a lot hop bitterness coming into play. Toffee underneath it all. Nice. Would be great if it wasn’t for the oxidation

dagimp (743) - 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. Didn’t wow me but very well constructed.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a moderate off-white head. Interesting malts to the nose - much earthier than I expected. Mild taste, slightly nutty. Not too bad.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - DEC 17, 2012
Rich brown color with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and a decent portion of citrus and floral notes. Medium bodied. Molasses, lightly roasted chocolate malts, and a healthy dose of citrus and floral hops. Solid but the high hopping rates detracts a bit from the hearty malt base, IMO. Still, a good beer.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bomber. Poured cola brown with a dense, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, roasty coffee, licorice, and molasses with heavy pine and citrusy hoppage around.. big, sweet, and inviting. The flavor found moderately-roasted molasses and nutty notes at the core, with grassy and pine bitterness around.. dry roast out there too.. finished roasty and bitter with decent balance. Medium-bodied with fuller carbonation on the palate.. decent overall feel and flow.. nice one.
