In brief: Needs examination

Ears produce wax that may be brown, but if drainage is significant and smells bad needs examination and cleaning of ear canal, to determine cause of drainage.
Would recommend appointment with ENT doctor.

In brief: INFECTION

Malodorous ear discharge is probably caused an infection.
A common bacteria, pseudomonas may be the culprit. You may need oral antibiotics and antibiotic ear drops. You should get seen. Hope you are better soon!
