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.

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.

Full bodied with a beautiful blend of dark malts - this is the kind of brown ale I like. Leather toffee nose. Rich round bitter chocolate cake mouth (slight alcohol taste) with a lightly bitter finish. A truly exceptional example of this style. Rated by BrewTom

Pours a dark amberish brown with a thin light tan head. The nose has notes of chocolate and licorice that includes a bit of hop aroma as well. First sip is malty and roasted moderately with coffee and chocolate flavours. Rich and malty with a bit of a sweet overbearing flavour. The finish has nutty and chocolate notes as well as citrusy hops and a smooth finish.

Bottle shared. Cheers Sean. Pours reddish brown with thin tan head. Aroma is Bubblegum, banana, nuts, yeast, cinnamon. Flavour is sweet nut with hazelnut finish. Low carbonation. Probably a bit sweet for me but plenty of carbonation.

Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of brown sugar and molasses. Flavor is rich and sweet, flavors of molasses. Mildly bitter finish keeps it from being too sweet. Wife: 3.7

UXO (402) - CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Pours clear slightly red-tinged deep amber with two fingers of loose beige head, great retention, moderate lacing (5/5). Nose is caramel malt, mild coffee, chocolate nibs, piney and citrus hops. (8/10). Taste is mild sweet malt, moderate bitter (8/10). Medium to full body, soft sustained carbonation, with a lingering bitter finish (4/5). Yeah, that’s a sexy brown ale. Far more hop character than a traditional brown ale. The malty character is present, but tempered by both the coffee and chocolate, as well as the piney and citrusy hops. Definitely more interesting than the traditional English brown. (15/20)
