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.

22oz bottle. Pours medium brown with a slight white head. Nice tasting brown with big malt flavors that were not overly sweet and some very subtle hops underneath.

chinchill (4201) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2016
2015 bottle served in a goblet. Clear red-brown body with a large, foamy tan head that leaves a partial coat of lacing on the glass. Very good retention. This "double brown" is, thankfully, double the malt bill (I guess) but not double the ABV of a standard brown. Americanized with enough hops to add flavor, bolster complexity, and leave this malt bomb leaning slightly more towards bitter than sweet.

650ml from Big Ridge Liquor Store. Pours a dark brown with a white head. Aroma and taste are caramel, dark fruits, toffee, smokey (especially in the taste). Burnt, stout-ish aftertaste. Excellent!

Brown pour, large off white head. Great pine Aroma, soft soapy Aroma, some subtle citrus, and some decent herby cereals. Good mouth feel, solid carb. Finish is nutty, with some subtle pine aromas and carnage cereals. A quality brown ale.

Definitely the best tasting brown ale I’ve had in a long time, or even ever. It’s way more complex than your average run of the mill brown ale. The aroma is full of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and caramel. The amarillo and columbus hops are definitely present in this, and add a nice citrus taste. It’s interesting because despite the big chocolate, coffee, vanilla and caramel, the citrus isn’t off putting or weird. Overall, this is an awesome brown ale and way better than most of the ones out there. Tons of awesome flavors and aroma’s work great together. Cheers

Pours a deep brown with a large foamy mocha head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, roasted nuts, vanilla, brown sugar. Taste is very well balanced between caramel sweetness and hope bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Très houblonnée que cette brune! La deScription est très exacte. Un liquide un peu trop mince à mon goût mais raffraichissant, présentant à la fois un côté torréfié et un côté "houblons américains" affirmé. Je ne suis pas un grand amateur de ce style, de ces hybrides étranges comme peuvent en être certaines Black IPA, mais je peux comprendre que certains y trouvent leur compte. L’alcool est caché à merveille et c’est tout de même intéressant.

Another good brown from Clown Shoes. Pours a nice warm dark brown from a bottle, off-white head with lots of lacing. Nice caramel maltiness, a little coffee note, good floral hoppiness with some lasting bitterness. Heard they’re going to retire this one so thought I’d grab a bottle, glad I did. Good beer.

Muy chula versión de Brown Ale americana. Carácter maltoso tostado, con notas dulces y a frutos secos. Tras esta base, lúpulos C en nariz y boca para llegar a un final amargo y floral
