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.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/19/2013. Pours nearly opaque dark reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense and rocky khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, chocolate, caramel, toast, toffee, light nuttiness, light coffee, floral, pine, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and dark malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, light nuttiness, floral, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, coffee, toast, toffee, light nuttiness, floral, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop and dark malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hoppy brown ale! All around great balance and complexity of hop and dark malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

From a 1 pint bottle. Roasted malt aroma, deep brown colour, pleasant hops fruit flavours and malt smoothness, subtle hints of coffee and chocolate. I really like this beer, I’d happily drink it all day.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle. There is not lot code or date. It pours an opaque brown with about a half-inch of light tan, silky head that settles down. There are hues of chestnut on the edge of the glass. The aroma is very enticing with its earthy esterws such as pine and nuts. Light malts mingle with btter hops to enhance the balance of the scent. The body is nice and full but also very smooth and soft on the tongue. There is a pleasant earthiness in the taste as well coupled with crystal malts and a damp, hop finish . Very good.

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.

Bomber pours chocolate brown with amber edges and tan head. The aroma offers up roasted malts, a bit of spicy hops, a touch of earthy chocolate malts and a faint sensation of burnt maltiness. The taste is rich dark roasted malts and spicy hops to start and then it grows into more burnt malts and more biter resiny hops. At the edges I get thin ribbons of dark roasted coffee and chocolate malts. Tasty stuff indeed.
