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.

The aroma is hops and earthy malts. The flavor is mixture of decently bitter hop bite and a caramel malt backbone. A pretty good brown ale, decently balanced.

Bomber from Half Time. Pours dark brown with a creamy 4 finger beige/tan head. Aroma (through a lot of foam) is dark malt, chocolate and probably resin hop. Full bodied. Flavor is lots of hop, chocolate, maybe a touch of coffee, definitely pretty darkly roasted malt. It has that brown ale malt flavor, but mixed with other things. Floral finish? Can’t say no, but the flavors are so strong I’d never have seen that on my own. Complex and amazing ale.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2012
Clear dark red beer, beige head. Malty aroma, quite sweet, generous hops, coffee, roasted malts, bitter chocolate and ash. Sweet malty flavour, bitter hops, milk chocolate and mocha. Silky mouthfeel, Finish caramel and roasted malts.
Not your typical brown ale, but as it isn’t my favourite style, for me that isn’t a bad thing.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 65cl bomber @ Delirium Hoppy Loft courtesy of and shared with Ronny (rlgk). Brune, col beige café au lait. Arôme malté grillé, houblonné avec un profile levure laissant en retrait des pointes de houblon citronné. Palais, malté grillé voire café restant dans le bon style des brunes américaines, le tout conserve une pointe de grains et sec en fin de bouche. Le tout est complémenté par un profile houblonné profond laissant pas mal de belles notes citronnées donnant un clin d’œil à des houblons européens.

15 cl. draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark brown with a white head. The nose is hops and mocha fighting for attention but this reasonably hoppy with lots of earthly hops, light roast and some chocolate. Bitter earthly hop flavour, american style stuff, reasonable roast, nuts, some mocha and chocolate, smoother almost tad creamy in the beginning with more present earthly hop bitterness and tad harsher roast in the back. Brown IPA? In america everything is hoppy - hop land. Here it is enjoyable - not too shabby stuff.

Pours a very dark brown with a thin layer of tan head. Aroma rich dark malts with hints of molasses and a solid hop backbone. Flavor is sweet and smoky with a good amount of dark fruit character as well. Very well-rounded beer that invokes a nice warming sensation as well.

BVery (5618) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Lyndale Tap House. Wow - one of the best brown ales I’ve ever had. Deep amber pour with a fluffy carbonated head. Huge aroma and taste of molasses, caramel sweetness, light smoke, and a really good job of off setting the big malt backbone with some bittering hops. Awesome in its style.

One of the best brown ales I’ve ever had. I get tonnes of roasted pecans and butteriness in the aroma and flavour. Smooth and delicious. So good.
